Motion Analysis and Simulation of Complex Curved Surface WEDM System
In this paper, the characteristics and general laws of cutting complex curved surface by wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM) system are studied. Based on analysis of motion parameters the universal mathematical model of polar coordinates is derived. Moreover, the simulation of WEDM system is introduced, which is carried out by using language Visual C++ and the three dimensional graph software OpenGL.This simulation method is helpful in improving machining quality and productivity of complex curved surfaces, and is fundation for establishing CAD/CAPP/CAM technology in WEDM.
