VALIDATION OF CUTTING FORCE CHARACTERISTIC FOR COMPLEX TOOLPATH

Abstract


In the design phase of the milling process, there is a great need for the prediction of the cutting force, the required torque and power of the spindle. These informations could be used to optimize the tool path and improve the material removal rate. In this work, we present our dexel based simulation software, its modules, calculations steps and the simulation method. Different force models were analysed to describe the specific force as a function of the local chip thickness. The models were fitted to the measured force data. Then the selected force model was validated in case of a complex tool path.
