Abstract

An analytical methodology is developed for NC data generation to produce and measure spatial cams on 5-axis machine tools. The Denavit-Hartenberg notation is used for expressing the ability function of the employed machine tool and in the generation of the desired cutter I measuring-probe location. NC data equations are determined by equating the corresponding elements of the machine tool's ability function to the desired tool location matrices. To validate this methodology, a designed cam was machined and its surfaces were measured by an online measurement system equipped with a touch-trigger probe on a 5-axis machine tool. The resultant cutting speed and material-removal rate during machining are also investigated. This methodology is a general one and is applicable to various spatial cams. It also combines the activities of design, manufacturing, and measurement, thus making the production process more flexible, automatic, and controllable.
