Study on Kinematics of Shape-Adaptive Tool for Free-Form Surfaces Compliantly Polishing
A new free-form surfaces shape-adaptive polishing tool is introduced in this paper, which can change its pose with the surface of workpiece. The simulation of this tool system’s polishing process is taken using ADAMS, and the kinematics of the shape-adaptive tool on the curvature varying surfaces of the workpiece is investigated. The simulating results indicate that the tool system can fit the varying curvature and slope of the workpiece’s surface very well.
