A consideration of the dynamic interaction between the machine tool structure and the cutting process is required for the prediction and optimization of machining tasks through simulation. This paper outlines a modular, analytical cutting force model applicable to common turning processes. It takes into account the dynamic material behavior and nonlinear friction ratios on the rake face as well as heat transfer phenomena in the deformation zones. In order to overcome simplifying assumptions in analytical cutting force descriptions and to incorporate the chip formation process into the analysis, specific input variables are determined in a metal cutting simulation based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). On the machine tool structure side, the setup of a parametric FEM model is presented. The accuracy of both the machine tool and cutting force models was verified experimentally on a turning center.
