Abstract:
The static and dynamic stiffness characteristics for a vertical milling machine were analyzed using finite element analysis. It was observed that the inadequate dynamic stiffness resulted in poor quality surface finish of the machined parts due to relatively low levels of vibration caused during finish machining operations. It was also observed that low dynamic stiffness had serious consequences under heavy machining conditions. The result shows that it is possible to carry out exhaustive analyses of relatively complicated machine tool structures using desktop computers and the appropriate software.
