Stability Prediction during Thin-Walled Workpiece High-Speed Milling
A method for predicting the stability of thin-walled workpiece milling process is described. The proposed approach takes into account the dynamic characteristics of workpiece changing with tool positions. A dedicated thin-walled workpiece representative of a typical industrial application is designed and modeled by finite element method (FEM). The workpiece frequency response function (FRF) depending on tool positions is obtained. A specific 3D stability chart (SC) for different spindle speeds and different tool positions is then elaborated by scanning the dynamic properties of workpiece along the machined direction throughout the machining process. The dynamic optimization of cutting parameters for increasing the chatter free material removal rate and surface finish is presented through considering the chatter vibration and forced vibration. The investigations are compared and verified by high speed milling experiments with flexible workpiece.
