A New Method of Pulse Technique in Gasbag Polishing
Gasbag polishing is an automatic, flexible, controllable and practical technique, which has wide application prospect. A pulse technique based on robotic gasbag polishing system is proposed. Its main principle is to use the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technique to control the switching time of High-speed Solenoid Valve (HSV). It can not only control the internal pressure of gasbag, but also make the rubber gasbag present pulsation with PWM technique. Moreover, the performance of pulse technique is presented and the effects of different frequency pulse pressure on the polished surface roughness are analyzed through a series of experiments. At last, experimental results show that the pulse technique can improve the polished surface roughness more rapidly in certain extent with appropriate pulse frequency and process parameters comparing with conventional gasbag polishing way.
