A New Method for Determining the Chip Geometry in Milling


Article Preview

Frequently, to validate FEM simulations of the cutting process it is compared the predicted results with the experimental cutting forces. In addition, other parameters are measured and it is possible to predict the chip geometry in some particular conditions. This paper presents a new development of the photogrammetry and its applications in the study of the chip geometry. In the orthogonal milling case, it is possible to obtain a 3D model of the deformed chip employing photogrammetry digitization techniques.
