Cutting force coefficients exhibit strong nonlinearity as a function of chip loads, cutting speeds and material imperfections. This paper presents the connection between the sensitivity of the dynamics of regenerative cutting and the cutting force characteristic nonlinearity. The nonlinear milling process is mathematically modelled. The transitions of dynamic cutting process between the stable and unstable zones are considered and experimentally illustrated by applying wavelet transformations on the measurement data.
