Paper Title:
Virtual Five-Axis Milling of Free-Form Surface-Part II: Feed Optimization
  Abstract

This paper presents process optimization for the five-axis milling based on the mechanics model explained in Part I. The process is optimized by varying the feed as the tool-workpiece engagements. The linear and angular feedrates are optimized by sequential quadratic programming. Sharp feedrate changes may result in undesired feed-marks on the finished surface. The adopted step is to update the the original CL file with optimized and filtered feedrate commands. The five-axis milling process is simulated in a virtual enviroment, and the resulting feedrate outputs are stored at each position along the tool path. The new feedrate profiles are shown to considerably reduce the machining time while avoiding process faults.
