Experimental Model for the Main Cutting Force in Face Milling of a High Strength Structural Steel
Machining and more specifically face milling are productive ways of material shaping. Predictive models are very important for effective: quick, easy-to-use and accurate process planning. There are many industrial and scientific researches about modelling the prominent process parameters of machining, notably the machining forces. The main cutting force is one of the most important indicators as it is a primary output parameter of the chip-removing process. The specific cutting force is long time used, traditional type of modelling the main cutting force but still there are missing or difficult-to-find numerical information about the effect of some of the input machining parameters such as cutting speed. In this research, the effects of the theoretical chip-section geometry and the cutting speed were examined through face milling experiments of the S960QL high strength structural steel.
