Regenerative Stablity Analysis of Highly Interrupted Machining

We discuss theoretical and experimental work that supports the use of very low radia immersion in the high-speed milling of difficult-to-machine materials, such as titanium alloys. Our theory is based upon modeling the cutting process by a kicked harmonic oscillator with delay. Traditional regenerative chatter theory predicts that, for a single degree of freedom system, the most stable speeds are at integral multiples of the natural frequency of the system. The new theory predicts a set of stable speeds at fractions of the damped natural frequency. For small damping, a subset of these stable speeds is approximately the same as predicted by the traditional theory. From a practical point of view, the most important prediction of our new theory is that the number of optimally stable speeds doubles as the ratio p of time per revolution of tool contact with the material to the spindle period becomes small, i.e., p
