Abstract

The cutting force provides significant information to help understand the machining process, optimization, tool condition monitoring, tool design and others. Hence, various methods of measuring the cutting force have been proposed by many researchers. In this work, an innovative integrated rotating dynamometer and tool holder is designed, constructed and tested that can fulfil the requirement to measure the cutting force in a wireless environment system. The device consists of a strain gauge based sensor that is mounted on a newly designed force sensing element which is then placed in the rotating tool holder. The force sensing element is designed in the form of a symmetrical cross beam type with four arms, shaped as a rectangular parallelepiped. This device is intended to be used in a rotating spindle such as in milling and drilling processes. A conditioning system and an inductive telemetry transmitter unit are incorporated into a modified tool holder in order to collect and transmit the cutting force signal to the data acquisition system. The rotating dynamometer has been subjected to a series of tests to determine its static and dynamic characteristics. Thus, it is tested experimentally by conducting cutting tests up to cutting speed 550 m/min with a single-tool insert. The results show it is suitable and reliable to measure the cutting force in milling processes.
