Profile end-milling processes are very susceptible to vibrations caused by cutter runout especially when it comes to operations where the cutter diameter is ranging in few millimeters scale. At the same time, the cutting conditions that are chosen for the milling process have a complementary role on the excitation mechanisms that take place in the cutting area between the cutting tool and the workpiece. Consequently, the study of milling processes in the case that a cutter runout exists is of special interest. The subject of this paper is the experimental analysis of the effect of cutter runout on cutter vibration and, by extension, how this affects the chip removal and, thereby, the workpiece topomorphy. Based on cutting force measurements correlated with the workpiece topomorphy under various cutting process parameters, such as the cutting speed, feed rate, and the axial cutting depth, some useful results are extracted. Hence, the effect of vibration phenomena, caused by cutter runout, on the workpiece topomorphy in end milling can be evaluated. View Full-Text
