Face milling, FEA simulation, cutting force component


This paper presents a study about the workpiece force components (Fx, Fy, Fz) changes in face milling, which results from changing the depth of cut and the feed rate values. The values of the three force components in the face milling operation were found through the FEA-software AdvantEdge by Third Wave Systems. This program is uniquely intended for modelling of cutting processes. Simulations were carried out within five different cutting depth of cut and feed rate, to compare the obtained values and find out the results of the impact of changes on the three force components.
