Milling is one of the most common manufacturing processes in industry. Despite recent advances in machining technology, productivity in milling is usually reduced due to the process limitations such as high cutting forces and stability. If milling conditions are not selected properly, the process may result in violations of machine limitations and part quality, or reduced productivity. The usual practice in machining operations is to use experience-based selection of cutting parameters which may not yield optimum conditions. In this two-part paper, milling force, part and tool deection, form error and stability models are presented. These methods can be used to check the process constraints as well as optimal selection of the cutting conditions for high performance milling. The use of the models in optimizing the process variables such as feed, depth of cut and spindle speed are demonstrated by simulations and experiments.
