Active Vibration Reduction

© Fraunhofer IPT

What is the potential of active vibration reduction systems?


Challenge and Motivation

  • Vibrations in milling lead to higher surface damages, higher tool wear and higher sound emissions.
  • The reduction of vibrations and the avoidance of instabilities will raise the milling efficiency significantly.


  • Analysis of the varying demonstrator dynamics for a curved geometry.
  • Vibrations reduction due to advantageous spindle speeds.
  • Active vibrations damping by using of piezo actuators during the milling process.
