Modelling and Simulation of Cutting Forces in Micromachining
The analysis of cutting forces plays an important role in the design of machine tool systems as well as in the planning, optimization, and control of micro machining processes. Several parameters influence the cutting forces of which the friction is important in causing premature tool failure. This paper presents a force model that includes the friction force for sliding due to the contact between the tool and workpiece at the flank face. Simulation results were compared with the experimental results of Bao and Tansel  showing that the model can satisfactorily represent the cutting forces in two dimensional cutting.
