Algorithm Based on 5-Axis NC Flank Milling of Arbitrary Surfaces
In order to improve quality and efficiency of the overall five-axis milling for arbitrary surface impellers. In rough milling, the arbitrary surface was replaced by fitted ruled surface, the flank milling was a good method to replace the point milling. In semi-finish milling, the primal surface was replaced by piecewise ruled surfaces, using step flank milling to gain the satisfaction in model’s nicety and machining efficiency. Then , algorithm of the paper is proved to be viable by Model building, NC programming and machining.
