Study on Unique Cutting Phenomena in Micro Endmilling - Mechanism and Possibility to Occur-
In micro endmilling, because of small uncut chip thickness comparable to the tool edge radius and low rigidity of tool, the cutting process must frequently transit between rubbing/ploughing and cutting, and it may deteriorate the machining stability, surface finish and tool wear. In this report, such unique cutting phenomena are investigated by modeling a mechanism, computer simulations and experiments. As a result, a possibility of the unique cutting phenomena proposed has been certified.
