ABSTRACT
The article presents results of both experimental and FEM model-based investigations on chatter phenomena that occur in the end milling process. On the basis of chatter symptoms observed during machining, the mechanism of its occurrence has been identified. Then, a FEM model has been built to indicate machine tool elements responsible for loss of stability. Afterwards, experimental modal analysis has been conducted in order to validate the FEM model. Finally, on the basis of the validated model, the structural changes have been proposed and applied in the real object resulting in increased stability.
