Deformation of thin-walled titanium alloys can occur during the milling process due to the cutting force and chatter vibration, which can influence the precision of the finished parts. In this research, a new milling method without auxiliary support for machining of thin-walled parts was proposed. A large cutting depth and layered milling technology were used during rough machining, with a different machining allowance for each subsequent remaining layer. In the finishing stage, the surface of the previous layer needed to be dressed before processing the next layer. A TiAlSiN-coated, cemented carbide milling cutter was used to machine titanium alloy thin-walled parts, which are characterized by continuous multilayers of unequal thickness. The processing path was simulated using HyperMILL software, and the machining accuracy was detected by the 3D optical scanner. The measurement results indicated that the surface contour accuracy of the parts was ±0.21 mm, within a range of ±0.30 mm. The machining efficiency was increased by 40%, while guaranteeing machining accuracy. View Full-Text
