Structure Dynamic Modification and Optimization for High-Speed Face Milling Cutter
Due to the complexity of high-speed milling process by high relative speed and interrupted cutting, the face milling cutters possess the multi-order modes and the vibrating displacements of the cutting edges under each modes affect adversely both the surface roughness and the life of machine/tool system worse than other structures. In order to improve the stability of milling process, this work focuses on the influence of the variables such as structure geometries and constraint conditions on the eigenfrequencies and modeshapes of cutter. As an example, the dynamic characteristics of several face cutters are analyzed and optimized by structural dynamic modification (SDM) techniques.
