Avoiding Instability on the Milling of Parts with Thin Features
In this paper, a 3D dynamic model for the prediction of the stability lobes of high speed milling is presented, considering the combined flexibility of both tool and workpiece. The main aim is to avoid chatter vibrations on the finish milling of aeronautical parts, which include thin walls and thin floors. In this way the use of complex fixtures is eliminated. Hence, an accurate selection of both axial depth of cut and spindle speed can be accomplished. The model has been validated by means of a test device that simulates the behaviour of a thin floor.
