Equipments and Strategies of Machining 3D Meso-Scale Parts
Currently machine tools and strategies researched in micro-milling field universally cannot be applied to 3D meso-scale parts machining directly, so great importance should be attached to the research on 5-axis machine tools and the suitable strategies for 3D meso-scale machining. This paper introduced a self-made 5-axis machine tool and several micro-milling strategies which were applicable to 3D meso-scale parts machining. Using these strategies, a mini impeller was successfully machined on the 5-axis machine tool developed independently. The experiment result showed the machine tool and the strategies were suitable for machining meso-scale 3D parts.
