In-process tool point FRF identification under operational conditions using inverse stability solution

2015-02-01
Self-excited vibrations of machine tools during cutting result in process instability, poor surface finish and reduced material removal rate. In order to obtain stability lobe diagrams to avoid chatter vibrations, tool point frequency response function (FRF) must be determined. In classical machine tool studies, tool point FRF is obtained experimentally or analytically for the idle state of the machine. However, during cutting operations, discrepancies are frequently observed between the stability diagrams predicted by using the FRFs measured at the idle state and the actual stability of the process. These deviations can be attributed to the changes in machine tool dynamics under cutting conditions which are difficult to measure. In this study, a new identification method is proposed for the identification of in-process tool point FRFs. In this method, experimentally determined chatter frequency and corresponding axial depth of cut are used in order to identify tool point FRF. The proposed method is applied to a real machining center and by using chatter tests it is demonstrated that the tool point FRF can be accurately identified under operational conditions.

Chatter is a major problem causing poor surface finish, low material removal rate, machine tool failure, increased tool wear, excessive noise and thus increased cost for machining applications. Chatter vibrations can be avoided using stability diagrams for which tool point frequency response function (FRF) must be determined accurately. During cutting operations, due to gyroscopic moments, centrifugal forces and thermal expansions bearing dynamics change resulting in tool point FRF variations. In addition, ...

Regenerative chatter is a well-known machining problem that results in unstable cutting process, poor surface quality and reduced material removal rate. This undesired self-excited vibration problem is one of the main obstacles in utilizing the total capacity of a machine tool in production. In order to obtain a chatter-free process on a machining center, stability diagrams can be used. Numerically or analytically, constructing the stability lobe diagram for a certain spindle-holder-tool combination implies...

Regenerative vibrations, called chatter, are a major problem limits productivity due to poor surface finish, low material removal rates and decrease in life of machine tool and equipment. Stability lobe diagrams are graphs that give a stable cutting limit at a given spindle speed, developed by the researchers as a chatter prevention tool. Various methods have been investigated to increase the critical cutting limit and suppress the most flexible mode in the machine tool frequency response function(FRF). Tun...

Regenerative chatter is a well-known machining problem that results in unstable cutting process, poor surface quality, reduced material removal rate and damage on the machine tool itself. Stability lobe diagrams supply stable depth of cut ا spindle speed combinations and they can be used to avoid chatter. The main requirement for generating the stability lobe diagrams is the system dynamics information at the tool tip in the form of point frequency response function (FRF). In this work, an analytical model ...
