5-Axis Virtual Machining Technology Research on Integral Impeller under PROE and Vericut Environment
Adopt software Proe 5.0 to create model and processing technology planning of integral impeller, This paper is to establish an NC processing plan integrated with modeling, programming, simulation and optimization, taking the integral impeller as an example and combining the CAM system of software Proe 5.0 and 5-axis simulation module Vericut7.15. By the above plan, the more proper NC processing method can be got, the processing technology will be improved, and processing cost will decrease. By this plan, users can prolong the service life of the cutter, improve the surface quality, shorten the production cycle and enhance the utilization rate and productivity of the lathe. establish detailed machining plan, perform 5-axis linkage CNC programming and generate NC program for integral impeller. Modify and optimize the error existed in the NC program generated by Proe 5.0 under Vericut 7.15 environment. Achieve virtual machining of impeller parts and provide method and basis for actual machining on machine by combination of Vericut 7.15 and Proe 5.0.
