High-accuracy miniaturized components are increasingly in demand for various industries such as aerospace, biomedical, electronics, environmental, communication and automotive, and this coupled with new developments of High Speed Machining (HSM) has led to the emergence of a strong and viable technology in High Speed Micro Machining. This technology is very important in bridging the macro-domain and the nano- and micro- domains for making functional miniaturized components. High speed Micro Machining is a specific technology where high spindle speeds, high performances cutting tools and high accuracy control systems are used. The understanding of this technology is still not well established and theories are still under development. A major implication of the High Speed Micro Machining process is the relatively high machining forces with respect to the cutting tool's size, which often cause low process reliability and high costs, due to frequent tool failures and short tool life. The aim of this investigation is to contribute towards a fundamental understanding of the effects of increased spindle speed in High Speed Micro Machining.
