High-Speed Milling Toolpath Planning for Aviation Engines Impeller Using POWERMILL Software
In this paper, the machining process of integrated impeller is customized basing on the geometry feature, function characteristics and the processing difficulties. Considering the working performance and machining rigidity, the rough machining and finish machining toolpath of the hub are generated in surface projection manner and the finish milling toolpath of blade is created in driver surface manner providing by the POWERMILL software. After simulating the machining toolpath, an integrated impeller is machined by 5-axis machining center of HSM 600U.
