Stability of up-milling and down-milling, Part 2: Experimental verification

The stability of interrupted cutting in a single degree of freedom milling process was studied experimentally. An instrumented flexure was used to provide a flexible workpiece with a natural frequency comparable to the tooth pass frequency, mimicking high speed milling dynamics. The displacement of the system was sampled continuously and periodically once per cutter revolution. These data samples were used to asses the stability of the system. Results confirm the theoretical predictions obtained in Part 1. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
