End-Mill Evaluation by Measurement of Cutting Force
Evaluation of manufacturing process in milling by direct measurement of cutting force is considered to be effective comparing to indirect measurement of electricity. This paper proposed a new evaluation method of end-mills by the direct measurement of cutting force. Cutting forces were precisely obtained by a 3-component dynamometer during end milling. Each flute cutting forces was evaluated for two types of end-mills (non wear-out, wear-out) by wave patterns of cutting force. A distinctive difference in the two types of end-mills has been clearly seen. The effectiveness of the proposed evaluation method has been clarified.
