Abstract: Vibration and noise in boring operations are ubiquitous problems in the workshop.
In boring operations, the boring bar is subjected to forces from both the cutting speed and the cutting depth direction. To solve the vibration problem using active techniques would normally require two actuators in order to enable the control of both directions.
By mounting one actuator in between the cutting speed and the cutting depth direction it is possible to achieve an active control solution with one actuator. Using only one actuator not only simplifies the control algorithm and saves extra equipment but is also favourable in terms of modifications of the boring bar.
The harsh environment in a lathe more or less requires that both sensors and actuators are embedded and sealed into the boring bar. Since the forces that are to be controlled are large, the space needed for the actuator is substantial. Thus using only one actuator will keep the modified boring bar stiffer than a two actuator design. Three boring bars with the actuator mounted at different angles between the cutting speed and the cutting depth directions have been tested.
Results from cutting experiments show that the one actuator solution has good potentials to the vibration problem in boring operations.
