In high-speed ball end milling, cutting forces influence machinability, dimensional accuracy, tool failure, tool deflection, machine tool chatter, vibration, etc. Thus, an accurate prediction of cutting forces before actual machining is essential for a good insight into the process to produce good quality machined parts. In this article, an attempt has been made to determine specific cutting force coefficients in ball end milling based on a linear mechanistic model at a higher range of rotational speeds. The force coefficients have been determined based on average cutting force. Cutting force in one revolution of the cutter was recorded to avoid the cutter run-out condition (radial). Milling experiments have been conducted on aluminum alloy of grade Al2014-T6 at different spindle speeds and feeds. Thus, the dependence of specific cutting force coefficients on cutting speeds has been studied and analyzed. It is found that specific cutting force coefficients change with change in rotational speed while keeping other cutting parameters unchanged. Hence, simulated cutting forces at higher range of rotational speed might have considerable errors if specific cutting force coefficients evaluated at lower rotational speed are used. The specific cutting force coefficients obtained analytically have been validated through experiments.
