This paper presents development of a practical tool deflection compensation system in order to reduce the machining error from the tool deflection compensation system in order to reduce the machining error from the tool deflection in the end-milling process. The devised system is a tool adapter which includes 1-axes force sensor for detecting tool deflection and 2-axes tool tilting device for adjusting tool position through computer interface on line process. Experimental in investigations for typical shaped workpieces representing various end milling situations are performed to verify the ability of the system to suppress the surface errors due to tool deflections. With the system, it is possible to get precise machining surface without any excessive machining error due to increased cutting force in more productive machining conditions.
