Paper Abstract

Metal surfaces can be decorated with tiny dimples to have various geometries over the metal surface. A conventional milling technique is often employed to generate desired dimples over the target surface. However, the technique requires a lot of milling time. A new technique to generate dimples using the milling was developed by authors, where the endmilling tool is operated only in the horizontal direction with the significantly high feed rate while the depth of cut is kept a significantly low value. In this paper, a new simplified algorithm to estimate the geometry of dimples is proposed. In addition, a technique to obtain the milling condition to generate the desired dimples is proposed. The technique was applicable to generate sub-millimeter size dimples.
