Research on Rotary and Tilting Table Five-Axis Milling Post-Processing Software Star-Fpost
Based on the MIRON UCP800 rotary and tilting table five-axis machine, this paper studies the mathematical model of Five-Axis machining and derives the algorithm formula of Six-Coordinate axis vector into five-axis AC rotary and tilting table. The Post-Processing process of turning the source file to the machine tool path code is fulfilled by using coordinate transformation matrix; with reading the cutting location file line by line, a dedicated five-axis milling post-processing software through adapting the Keyword-Triggered method is developed by using object-oriented program in the paper. First completing construction of Five-Axis machine tools mode in the VERICUT simulation environment, then manufacturing the whole shaft by ternary simulation of impeller machining in NX, and the simulation results shows that the function of Post-Processing software Star-Fpost. The software can provide the actual processing of information for MIKRON UCP800 five-axis machine tools.
