|Abstract:||This article is focused on the finite element modeling of burr formation in high speed micromilling of Ti6Al4V. Studies show that the burr produced at the up milling side at the exit of the micromilling tool is the biggest among burrs at other locations. Therefore, side exit burr at the up milling side has been modeled through finite element modeling. Johnson cook material constitutive model has been implemented in the formulation of burr formation. Experimental work has been performed to validate the developed model. It is found that the burr height and width obtained from the simulation has been validated experimentally with a maximum error of 15%. It was found from the literature review that the cutting speed is the factor, which influences the burr formation. Therefore, the model has been further extended to study the effect of cutting speed on the burr size. A maximum tool rotation of 200,000 rpm was considered with a tool diameter of 500 mu m. It is predicted from the simulation that, the burr size was reduced by 96% (both height and width) if cutting tool speed was increased from 10,000 to 200,000 rpm. Therefore, it is concluded that the cutting speed is the major factor to reduce the burr size in micromilling of Ti6Al4 V. This study shows that the high speed micromachining center can be helpful in producing the micro parts with less or no burrs. It is expected that further extension of the burr formation model can minimize the burr size to zero/near zero size. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.|
