Experiment Study on Deflection of Aluminum Alloy Thin-Wall Workpiece in Milling Process
The deflection of Aluminum alloy thin-wall workpiece caused by the milling force leads to additional machining errors and reduces machining accuracy. In this paper, a set of experiments of milling thin-wall workpiece were carried out to study the deflection of thin-wall workpiece. The workpieces, with different types of material and different thicknesses, were machined on CNC machining center. The deflections of workpiece were measured by a three-coordinate measuring machine. Effects of Aluminum alloy material and thickness on deflection are discussed based on the experimental data.
