CHATTER AVOIDANCE IN MILLING BY USING ADVANCED CUTTING TOOLS WITH STRUCTURED FUNCTIONAL SURFACES

Abstract

The productivity of machining processes is often limited by the occurrence of dynamic effects. The presented approach intends to counteract tool deflections, and thus to damp and disrupt chatter vibrations by using milling tools with defined functional structures on the flank faces at the minor cutting edges. The potential of process stabilization is evaluated by analyzing the operational behavior of three variants of surface structures in experiments, in which an aluminum alloy was machined. An increase of the process stability and productivity of up to 60 % could be achieved.
