Abstract

This paper investigates the cutting force coefficients embodied in the cutting force model of ball-end milling. A series of slot milling tests was performed with a one-tooth helical ball-end mill for the calibration of the cutting force coefficients. The recorded dynamic cutting forces are averaged to fit the theoretical model and yield the force coefficients. The reasonable agreement between the measured and simulated dynamic cutting forces demonstrates the effectiveness of the calibration method. The results are compared with those obtained from a series of slot milling tests using a one-tooth helical end mill under similar cutting conditions. The two
