Frequency Response Measurement of Cutting Tools for Aerospace Applications 2001-01-2606

In order to increase the metal removal rates and productivity of cutting tools in aerospace applications, it is important to understand the dynamic characteristics of the machine-tool-workpiece combination, typically expressed as a Frequency Response Function (FRF). It is exactly the lack of this understanding that leads to problems with chatter, for example. Many users of machine tools find the measurement procedures and the computations difficult, and they do not perform them. While considerable progress has been made in easing the computational burden only recently has the measurement become easier. This paper describes 2 new techniques which reduce the skill level required to make the measurement
