Research on Tool Radius Compensation for 4-Axis Gang Control Grinding of Rolling Cutter Curve-Edge
Rolling cutter curve-edge is a complex spatial curve. This paper states the present method of tool radius compensation for grinding it by 4-axis gang control grinding center, analyzes the existence of processing error due to this method, and proves the error can not be neglected. To avoid the error, a new method of tool radius compensation based on vector decoupling is raised. From a comparative experiment, it shows that the new method can promote processing precision and enlarge work-life of rolling cutter evidently.
