Passive Vibration Elimination – High Damping Materials in Tool Systems
How can novel high-damping materials be used in tool holder system to reduce vibrations in milling?
Challenge and Motivation
- Vibrations during finish milling of turbine blades and similar thin-walled parts lead to unacceptable surface quality and short tool life.
- Increased damping can improve process performance.
- Reduce vibrations in finish milling of turbine blades by using high damping materials in tool system.
- Increase repeatability and surface quality during finishing of thin-walled, complex work pieces.
