Design of Milling Cutter for Machining Helical Curved Surfaces
The article focused on the design of milling cutter for machining helical curved surfaces. First, the characteristics of 3th generation profile in screw compressor were presented; then the equation of touch line between milling cutter and workpiece was constituted based on the envelop principle from milling cutter rolling surface and spiral curved surface; and elementary theories and methods were put forward for designing contour of milling cutter in machining spiral curved surfaces, finally the calculate equation was validated through the machining example by Matlab.
