The repair of components often requires the removal of excess weld material. This removal is considered as re-contouring. Re-contouring processes have to be designed individually for each case of damage to fulfil the high quality requirements. Therefore, a prognosis of the machined surface topography is crucial. The material removal simulation introduced in this paper allows the prediction of process stability and surface topography for 5-axis ball end milling including dynamic effects. Different process strategies for re-contouring of Ti-6Al-4V welds are examined. It is shown, that selecting suitable process parameters can lead to high surface quality while maintaining productivity.
