CAD modelling of the chip shape in case of ball-end milling
Kulcsszavak:free form surface, ball-end milling, chip, CAD modeling, average chip thickness
The manufacturing of free form surfaces is a common task in the field of mould and die manufacturing. The changing circumstances of the finishing milling with ball-end milling cutter has effect on the shape and the volume of the chip, the load of the cutting tool and the generated surface roughness. The aim of the article is to investigate the changing of the chip thickness and volume in case of ball-end milling by 3D CAD modelling, and to analyse the changing of the circumstances in case of milling of a convex and a concave surfaces.
