The Processing Method and Discuss of Curved Surface Based on Spatial Linkage Mechanism
Compared with the free surface, the ruled surface is a linear set of parameters, and is obtained by a straight line moving in space along the curve trajectory, and tts modern processing methods are all complex and high cost. Spatial linkage mechanism has many features such as simple structure, easily control, sports continuous and so on, and the initiative crank continuous rotating drives the mechanism, at the same time, the rod length, the motion pair length or the twist angle is changed, which the cutter with start position fixed on a point of the rod main moves along the given curve, and feed moves straightly along the rod itself, so, the ruled surface was processed. The method is uncomplicated, and achieves high efficiency and high precision continuous line contact surface parts finishing, operating easily and saving cost.
