CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE PARAMETERISATION OF A CHATTER DETECTION ALGORITHM

Abstract

Process instabilites due to the regenerative effect limit the material removal rate of cutting machine tools. A method developed at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) at RWTH Aachen University reduces the experimental effort of determining stability limits for milling. The method bears on a time-domain chatter detection algorithm, which detects process instability based on predefined threshold values. Up to now, the definition of the threshold values has been derived from a selective number of sample tests. To investigate the transferability of the chatter detection algorithm to various boundary conditions cutting tests are carried out. In addition, a new stability criterion for high frequency chatter oscillations is introduced. The results are analysed with regard to factors that require an adjustment of the threshold values. Based on the results, a parameterisation of the chatter detection algorithm is presented.
