Abstract: Chip formation process can lead to the fluctuation of cutting force and result in cutting vibration during high-speed milling, which makes serious impact on surface quality. In this paper, chip formation process is analysed and experiments are carried out to investigate the evolution of chip morphology and its effect on surface roughness in high-speed milling of nickel-based superalloy. It is found that, as the cutting speed increases from 25 to 200 m/min, the value of chip burrs firstly decreases and then increases. Chip morphology is gradually transformed from ribbon to serration. At the critical cutting speed of 75 m/min, both pitch and height of chip burrs reach the lowest value and serrated chips begin to appear. The variation tendency of surface roughness values agrees well with the evolution of chip morphology. The experimental results have a great significance for improving the surface quality in high-speed milling of nickel-based superalloy.
