This paper deals with the regenerative chatter vibration occurring in cutting tools with different side cutting edge angles. The occurrence of regenerative chatter vibration of the cutting tool is influenced by two factors, which are closely related to the vibratory energy supply or consumption. One factor is the interference effect between the tool flank and the workpiece. Of course, this factor exists in the primary chatter, too. The other is the regenerative effect. The influence of both factors on the regenerative chatter vibration of cutting tools with different side cutting edge angles is examined experimentally. The vibratory energy supply is simulated, considering the dynamic cutting process. As a result, the property of the regenerative chatter vibration and the influence of the side cutting edge angle on the regenerative chatter vibration are clarified.
