In light-cut milling operations, specific correlations have been identified empirically between the maximum cutting force on a cutter and its associated cutting parameters, and a series of ball-end milling tests for P20 tool steel has been conducted to establish the nature of these correlations. The experimental results indicate that the maximum cutting force on a cutter can be expressed as a logarithmic function of the associated cutting parameters. This paper describes the structure and testing of a simplified cutting force model for planar milling based on these results.
