Barrel Tool vs. Ball End Mill - Model-based Part Quality Assessment
How is the resulting part quality of barrel tool milling compared to ball end milling?
Challenge and Motivation
- In previous ICTM Collaborative R&D projects Fraunhofer IPT demonstrated the rough and finish machining of a Blisk geometry with barrel tools.
- The established best-practice machining process ultimately enables a systematic assessment of the achievable part quality.
- Benchmark of the achieved part quality in Blisk manufacturing (barrel tool vs. ball end mill).
- Model-based evaluation of the achieved part quality and assessment of root causes for quality issues.
