Singular Problem and Improved Plane Interpolation Algorithm
In the 5-axis machining, when the tool orientation approaches the one of the rotation axis, the sharp changing of the rotation angles obtained by the transforming of tool orientations causes a large over cutting or under cutting for the limit of the machine’s dynamic characteristic, which is called singular problem. After analyzing the causing of the singular problem, the position of singular point, the singular value and the nonlinear error, etc, an improved plane interpolation algorithm based on plane interpolation of tool orientation algorithm is given out in the paper following with the simulation and test of the circumference milling of the tilt plane (tilt angle: 1°) separately with the plane interpolation and improved plane interpolation based on a 5-axis machining center with two swiveling heads (rotation axes: C/A). The results prove that the new interpolation is valid and correct.
