An Optimal Feed Interpolation Algorithm for High-Speed Five-Axis Machining


Article Preview

To alleviate the feed fluctuation and maintain a smooth feed in five-axis machining, this paper takes the following two constraints into account: (1) the machining dynamics, including the constraints of power, velocity and acceleration represented by upper bounds for each axis (2) the contour constraints of the tool path, including the linear distance of the segment and sharp corner at the segment junctions. With the analysis of these constraints, the optimal feed is derived and the corresponding adjusted interpolation algorithm is presented such that a smooth motion during the machining can be obtained. The presented algorithm is demonstrated by the simulation result.
