Inverse Kinematics with 3-Dimensational Tool Compensation for 5-Axis Machine Center of Tilting Rotary Table
The purpose of this paper is to develop a tool radius compensation method for a 5-axis horizontal machine center with a tilting rotary table. The generalized expression is presented first to determine the cutting contact location for any type of milling tools. The spindle orientation solved from a closed form of the inverse kinematics is applied for generating the postprocessor, and a compensating procedure is implemented to verify the offset path.
