This study aimed to analyze the defects of large residual stress in laser additive manufacturing metal parts by establishing a milling numerical simulation of Ti6Al4V titanium alloy thin-walled parts based on the Johnson-Cook constitutive model of Ti6Al4V titanium alloy, a modified Coulomb friction stress model, the physical chip separation criterion and other theories, combined with the finite element software ABAQUS. The influences of milling depth, initial temperature and milling speed on

The results show that milling changes the residual stress distribution of the deposition layer, which can reduce or even change the residual tensile stress on the surface of the deposition layer produced by the additive manufacturing process into compressive stress, and the equivalent Mises stress decreases by 47% compared with the original forming surface. When the initial temperature increases from 20 °C to 400 °C, the maximum equivalent Mises stress of the milling surface decreases by 26%.
