An enhanced method for cutting force estimation in peripheral milling

Abstract

A new model for cutting force estimation is presented in this paper. It is based on the specific cutting force coefficient, which is defined as a function of chip thickness. The distinguishing feature of the proposed cutting force model is the use of average chip thickness for cutting force calculation on each position of the cutting tool, in such a way that only one iteration is needed on every angular position of the tool. This model is based on the actual workpiece–tool interaction which provides information about the real position of the cutting edge. It provides an alternative to other studies in scientific literature commonly based on numerical integrations. With this model, it is possible to estimate the cutting forces not only under steady-state conditions but also under variable machining conditions of axial and radial depth of cut.
