Abstract: In order to investigate the effects of cutting edge radius on micro/meso-scale cutting process, the current paper is concerned with a fundamental investigation of the contribution of cutting edge radius to cutting temperature, stress field and size effect by means of two-dimensional finite-element simulation for orthogonal cutting process. The results indicated that cutting edge radius has remarkable effects on cutting temperature and stress field, and the existence of cutting edge radius is one of the main reasons generating size effect. The cutting edge radius affects the micro/meso scale cutting process at smaller uncut chip thickness by altering the effective rake angle and enhancing the plowing effect, affecting the material deformation process, expanding and widening the plastic deformation zone, and causing higher energy dissipation due to increased tool-chip contact length.

Abstract: Miniaturized components are increasingly in demand for various industries. Micro milling operations can fabricate miniaturized components with high relative accuracy. In micro milling process, the analysis of cutting force plays an important role in characterizing the machining process, as the tool wear and surface texture depending on the cutting force. In this paper, the orthogonal experiments under slot-milling and side-milling with typical micro three dimensional parts are done by the developed three-axis micro milling machine tool, and the micro milling force is measured and analyzed. In order to improve the processing efficiency and processing accuracy of micro milling process, the impact law of the spindle speed, axial cutting depth, feed per tooth and other parameters on cutting force is deeply studied, and the machining parameters is also optimized.

Abstract: To improve the dynamic performance of developed micro-milling system, the servo parameters were adjusted and the PID values were optimized respectively by considering the different characteristics of the servo driver under the position, velocity and torque control modes. Then, the different effects of three control modes on the micro-milling system were comparatively analyzed by means of orthogonal test. A control mode with better dynamic performance was chosen properly for the micro-milling system. Given the acceleration of 30m/s2 and feed speed of 200mm/s, the positioning error of micro-milling system was less than 1μm.

Abstract: Aiming at the deficiency of existing focused ultrasonic technology, a new high-power Spherical Shell Focused Ultrasonic Transducer (SSFUT) was designed. The SSFUT is composed of a sandwich piezoelectric ultrasonic transducer and a bending vibration spherical shell. Simulation on acoustic field of SSFUT was carried out. the acoustic field pressure distribution nephogram and the axial acoustic pressure curve of the SSFUT were obtained. The consistency of finite element simulation results and experimental results was verified by testing. The research provides a theoretical basis for implementation and application of the new focused ultrasonic technology.

Abstract: A coupled thermo-mechanical model is used to simulate two-dimensional orthogonal cutting process based on simulation model of micro-cutting. The temperature effect in micro-cutting process is studied deeply through FEM combined with micro-cutting experiments. The results indicate that cutting temperature decreases at the tool-chip interface with reduction in uncut chip thickness at high cutting speed and large uncut chip thickness. The temperature drop tends to have a hardening effect on the material strength, which in turn causes an increase in the specific cutting energy.
