As spindle speeds and power have increased, the possibility of using the stability lobe phenomena to substantially increase the metal removal rate has become more attractive, and selection of optimum spindle speeds has become an important consideration. It is shown that, for many milling operations, it is desirable to set the tooth frequency equal to the natural frequency. At this spindle speed, the development of resonant forced vibration is actually inhibited by regeneration of waviness. An algorithm is presented for automatically selecting the optimum spindle speed based on the cutting force signal.
