Good Vibration Stability Mapping Software?

  1. Jan 15, 2016 #1
    Hello Physics Forum patrons!

    I am currently in search for some software and maybe hardware to analyze and map vibration/stability for rotating cutting tools (CNC milling). Being primarily a machine programmer and product designer, I have a very minimal understanding of vibration from a physics standpoint. With that said, I would like to acquire some software to analyze various cutting tools and create graphs for them which should look similar to:


    Would anyone here be able to point me in the right direction? I've tried Googling to no avail...

    Are you also interested in analyzing models? If so, would you be able to tell what mathematical form these take? I'm familiar with some work where machine tool dynamics is modeled using delay differential equations.
