Influence of Cutting and Geometrical Parameters on the Cutting Force in Milling


This paper presents a numerical modelling of the dynamic behaviour of the Machine-Tool-Part system (MOP) in milling. The numerical study of such complex structure requires the use of sophisticated method like finite elements one. Simulation is employed to predict cutting forces and dynamic response of Machine-Tool-Part system (MOP) during end-milling operation. Finally, spectral analysis is presented to see the influence of feed direction in the vibration.
