Characteristics of Free Form Finishing Applying V-CAM System


Article Preview

A new CAD system, which is called Volume-CAD (VCAD) have been developed. We carried out research and development of VCAD fabrication process based on VCAD/CAM precision control. In this study, a developed V-CAM had been used for a polishing fundamental experiment of a free form surface. The relationship between NC resolution and form accuracy of polished surface are discussed.
