Tool Path Simulation Software with Ultra-Precision Grind for Aspherical Elements


Article Preview

It is very important to improve machining efficiency and ensure manufacture quality through testing NC program of aspherical elements machining with simulation software. For ultra -precision NC machining tool, we analyzed the tool path of ultra-precision grind for aspherical elements, edited a simulation software of the path, got a structural chart of the software, analyzed some important module of the software. In fact the software is able to imitate tool path, test the correctness of numerical control code according to numerical control code edited.
