Abstract

The blisk has been widely used in modern high performance aero-engines of high thrust-weight ratio. Disc milling process provides a reliable way to improve the efficiency of the blisk milling. The process parameters of disc milling have crucial effects on the milling efficiency and physical property of blisk. In this paper, material removal rate, cutter life and thickness of residual stress layer are regarded as optimization targets the key process parameters such as spindle speed, cutting depth and feed speed are optimized. Based on the grey relational analysis, the multi-objective optimization problem is transformed into a single objective optimization problem. At the same time, the problem of non-symmetry influence of key process parameters on optimization targets can be solved. And the influence weight of material removal rate, cutter life and thickness of residual stress layer on the grey relational grade (GRG) are calculated according to principal component analysis. The second order prediction model of GRA is developed by response surface method. On the basis of verifying the accuracy of the model, the influence mechanism of the process parameters coupling on the gray correlation degree is analyzed the optimal process parameter combination is obtained as spindle speed with 81.92 rpm, cutting depth with 5.88 mm and feed rate with 66.0823 mm/min. The experimental research show that the optimal process parameter combination can effectively improve the material removal rate and cutter life and reduce the thickness of residual stress layer.
