The dynamic characteristics of the clamping system, which is composed of workpiece and chuck, have important effects on the stability of turning process. However, in current researches on cutting stability, the influence of the characteristics of clamping contact surface on the clamping system was rarely considered. In order to improve the prediction accuracy of stable cutting limits in turning process, the role of clamping contact surface in deciding the dynamics of the clamping system was analyzed in this paper. Then, the dynamics model of clamping system was established considering the characteristics of clamping contact surface between workpiece and chuck. The dynamics parameters of the clamping system were obtained with receptance coupling substructure analysis method. The frequency response function of clamping system at different cutting position was presented, which is a foundation for analyzing the cutting stability.
