The work is related to the study and optimisation of the dynamic performance of interaction between chisels and the wood in the course of longitudinal milling using the conical face milling cutters (with small amount of chisels) of sawing machines. This dynamics is characterized by non-uniformity of the process load when using the specified milling cutters. It was quantitatively assessed by the indicator of non-uniformity of the technological load within the cycle of processing of logs and bars into sawn timbers and wood chips. For cutters with small number of chisels this dynamic indicator equals the ratio of the maximum total length of the cutting edges of the chisels to the average length of their cutting edges simultaneously involved in cutting throughout the cycle of wood processing (turn of the cutter). Conical face milling (conical) cutters with a small number of chisels were conventionally considered as a discrete set of square-shoulder mills, i.e. as a particular case of a cutter with many chisels. The process of interaction with between the chisels and wood within the processing cycle was divided into four zones (periods): I zone – period of cutting of all chisels into the timber; II zone - period of operation of all chisels of a group and subsequent extraction from timber; III zone – the period of gradual extraction of the group of chisels from the timber; IV zone – period of approaching the neighbouring group of chisels. The size and relative orientation of these zones in time in conditions of steady cutting define the different nature of interaction between chisels and the wood with the varying intensity of technological load. Author has obtained mathematical relationships between these zones, and taking them into account – determination of the index of uneven technological load per wood processing cycle; calculations were made and a number of parameters of cutters were substantiated. The author has determined the influence on the rate of non-uniformity of width, height of milling, as well as the angle of rotation of chisels in the centre plane of the cutter. The rational (optimal) location of double lip chisels (at two-row structure) on the milling cutter body is the following: the ratio of the width of a line of chisels with larger radius of cutting to the width of a line of chisels with smaller radius of cutting (at the calculated values of the milling process) is 1.25; the size of the non-covered area of the cutting edge at the smaller base of the cutter is 50 mm with a total width of 120 mm. This condition corresponds to the minimum maximum power of cutting along the length of the chips cut and the lowest indicator of uneven technological load per turn of the cutter.
