Abstract:
This article deals with five-axis machining of free-form surfaces with torus cutters and round inserts. An orientation of the tool axis to make a dynamic tool behaviour as stable as possible is presented in this work. With this new method an improvement of 50% on different roughness criteria can be obtained. For that, tool axis inclination will be towards the back of the tool compared to the feed direction that will allows to all inserts to machine simultaneously. The global cutting phenomenon is then continuous and it is thus possible to find a tool axis inclination that decreases its vibrations. It will be shown that this calculated tool axis inclination allows on the one hand to reduce the transversal tool deflections and in the other hand to stabilize the dynamic tool behaviour. A better quality on the finished workpiece is then obtained.
