Research and Development of Four Axis Linkage Grinding Simulation System of Ball-Nose End Mill
The four axis linkage grinding simulation system of ball-nose end mill has be developed based on the mathematical model of four axis linkage grinding through establishing ball-nose end mill's parametrical database, constructing ball-nose end mill’s and grinding wheel's solid models in Solidworks, simulating the grinding processes of the rake face and flank face of ball-nose end mill based on Boolean operation, and automatic NC programming of rake face and flank face grinding. The results show the grinding simulation system can be used to manufacture ball end mill.
