Abstract
This paper presents the development of a cutting force model for the micro-end-milling processes under various cutting conditions using a hybrid approach. Firstly, a finite element (FE) model of orthogonal micro-cutting with a round cutting edge is developed for medium-carbon steel. A number of finite element analyses (FEA) are performed at different uncut chip thicknesses and velocities. Based on the FEA results, the cutting force coefficients are extracted through a nonlinear algorithm to establish a relationship with the uncut chip thickness and cutting speed. Then, the cutting force coefficients are integrated into a mechanistic cutting force model, which ca...
