Abstract

An analytical methodology has been developed for NC data generation in order to machine and measure a spatial cam on a four-axis machine tool. The Denavit-Hartenberg notation is used for characterizing the ability of the employed machine tool and in the generation of the desired tool location. NC data equations are obtained by equating the corresponding elements of the ability function of the machine tool and the desired tool location matrices. This methodology is a general one and is applicable to various spatial cams. It also combines the activities of design, manufacturing, and quality control, thus making the production process more flexible, automatic, and controllable.
