This article focuses on determining the effects of cutting conditions and their interactions on the cutting process damping in the case of curvilinear milling. The tests were performed using a numerical model simulation that allows the prediction of cutting forces and damping. The effects and interactions are determined using the Taguchi experimental method. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed to know the level of importance of the machining parameters on the cutting damping process. The results revealed that the Depth of cut Ap “C” and cutting speed Vc “B” have the most significant influence on the Cxx and Cxy process damping. The variations of tool diameter D “A” and clearance angle α have remarkable effects on the process damping Cxx. The “BC” interaction has the greatest effect on the process damping Cxx while the “AC” interaction has the greatest effect on the process damping Cxy.
