Milling is utilized in a variety of industries, able to handle mass manufacturing to one of prototypes. This project focused on analyzing new techniques applied to milling. Research in the areas on high speed/efficiency milling provided many techniques from which to improve material removal rate, surface finish and part tolerance. Next the project compared various CAM software available at WPI, analysis of new cutting techniques available from the different packages was taken into consideration. The project's case study focused on solving chatter problems in 4 axis machining of pistol barrels, with the intent of increasing tool life and surface finish quality as well as reducing time required to manufacture.
