Stability Analysis of the MRT-Based Compliant Polishing Tool System


Article Preview

In order to meet the needs for the precise polishing of free-form surfaces, a new compliant polishing tool system was designed based on a magnetorheological torque servo (MRT), and integrated into a CNC milling machine. Through analysis, it was pointed out that the key factor affecting the polishing quality of this system is the stability of the system. By means of the 3D geometric modeling software ProE, the finite element analysis software ANSYS, and the dynamic simulation software ADAMS, the rigid-flexible mixed model of the system was established and the stability of the polishing pressure and tool position was numerically analyzed.
