This study proposes a novel approach to increase the chatter stability in machining operations. It shows the potential performance improvement when an inerter-based dynamic vibration absorber is employed in a machining operation. Tuned inerter based devices have been employed to decrease the magnitude of the vibrations in applications such as civil engineering structures and vehicle suspension systems but the nature of chatter in machining is different from these applications. Therefore, it requires a different tuning methodology to obtain the optimal design parameters. In this study, the machining operation is modelled as an undamped single degree of freedom system and different configurations of an inerter, a damper and two springs are used to ensure a stable region of operation. Strategies for the tuning parameters are developed both analytically and numerically. Using these techniques the performance improvement in the chatter stability provided by using inerter based devices instead of a traditional dynamic vibration absorber is demonstrated.
