Abstract(#br)Multi-blade face milling cutters are widely used in the finish machining of mechanical parts. The cutting force in the milling process is a crucial factor that promotes the chatter of the machine spindles, which can be used to predict the machined surface roughness. In this paper, a novel cutting force prediction model based on non-uniform rational basis splines (NURBS) and finite element method (FEM) is proposed. Single blade cutting forces under different parameters are simulated by FEM, and a cutting force model of the single blade is established by the NURBS interpolation method. Then, combined with the tool tip motion model, the cutting force of the multi-blade face milling cutter can be predicted. To verify the correctness of the cutting force predicted by the proposed...
