Abstract

Multi-cutter turning systems bear huge potential in increasing cutting performance. In this study we show that the stable parameter region can be extended by the optimal tuning of system parameters. The optimal parameter regions can be identified by means of stability charts. Since the stability boundaries are highly sensitive to the dynamical parameters of the machine tool, the reliable exploitation of the so-called stability pockets is limited. Still, the lower envelope of the stability lobes is an appropriate upper boundary function for optimization purposes with an objective function taken for maximal material removal rates. This lower envelope is computed by the Robust Stability Computation method presented in the paper. It is shown in this study, that according to theoretical results obtained for optimally tuned cutters, the safe stable machining parameter region can significantly be extended, which has also been validated by machining tests.
