The experiments showed that both rotary belt cutter and the jagged chain cutter can realize high speed cut with high ground speed, the former cut speed and operating speed can reach 17 m/s and 15 km/h separately, and the latter can reach 7 m/s and 13 km/h responsively.
Cutting force model for a small-diameter helical milling cutter
In the milling process, the major flank wear land area (two-dimensional measurement for the wear) of a small-diameter milling cutter, as wear standard, can reflect actual changes of the wear land of the cutter.
By analyzing the wearing characteristics of the cutter, a cutting force model based on the major flank wear land area is established.
The cutting force model for the helical milling cutter is validated by experiments.
Thus, the cutting force model established in the research can provide a theoretical foundation for monitoring the condition of a milling process that uses a small-diameter helical milling cutter.
