A spindle integrated cutting force system where piezoelectric force sensors are embedded in the spindle housing is studied. The transfer function between the force experienced at the end mill and measured at the spindle integrated force sensor varies depending on the tool length sticking out. In the paper, a method is proposed to predict the transfer function of the overall system by coupling the receptances of the analytically modeled end mill and experimentally measured spindle structures. The experimentally proven method allows for the automated calibration of the spindle integrated force system whenever a tool change occurs to accurately measure high-frequency bandwidth cutting forces.
