Off-line optimization on NC machining based on virtual machining Authors: J.G. Li, H. Zhao, Y. X. Yao & C. Q. Liu Received: 7 July 2006/ Accepted: 12 Dec 2006/ Published online: 10 Jan 2007 Presented By: Bibhisha Uprety Date: 10/27/2010 Introduction What is virtual machining? One of the special applications of virtual manufacturing that focuses on geometrical and physical simulation. It is a computer-based technology that can provide tools to optimize the production process via simulation prior to the actual production. How? Virtual machining focuses on geometrical simulation( verifying the reliability of NC programs in advance) and physical simulation ( predicting process parameters) What is NC (Numeric Control) machining?

Automation of machine tools that are operated by programmed commands to achieve objectives with high quality and low cost. It is a major technology used in machining of complex and free-form surfaces. Off-line optimization is also called computer simulation based optimization, that is flexible and multi purpose and requires just a computer. What is the function of the paper? To test a framework of optimization system based on virtual machining and see if different parameters of NC machining via offline optimization can achieve improved machining process. Why is it important? Optimization system based on virtual machining is capable to increase the performance level of NC machining. To obtain a higher performance machining process at a lower cost.

Machining process simulation Fig: Module Structure Optimization of cutting parameters: To achieve high machining productivity with low cost since the tool path planning and cutting parameters are optimized/tested before actual production. Cutting parameters acquirement: For turning: F=f (v, vf, ap) For milling: F=f (ap, ae, fz)

where, F=the resultant cutting force v=cutting speed vf=feed rate ap=Cutting depth ae=Cutting width fz=Feed rate per tooth Optimization algorithm: Optimization algorithm is used to calculate the optimum parameters.(Fig 5)Fig: Cutting parameters acquisition Error compensation: Higher machining accuracy at low cost is achieved by correcting programs according to the predicted error. Error model of machining system: E(x, y, z, t)=EP+ wMTEMT (x,y,z,t)+ wFEF(x,y,z)+ wTET(x,y,z,t)+ wDED(x,y,z,t) where, wi =the contribution weight of ith error component to the total resultant machining error EP=the tool setting error=random error

EF=the deformation error caused by cutting force ET=the wear of cutting tool ED=the dynamic error EMT=the total error of a machine tool Error compensation: Machining error and error distribution is predicted by comparing the virtual workpiece to the desired workpiece model. Implementations: Different types of virtual machining systems for offline optimization of NC programs. Reliability verification of NC programs: Why? 5-axis machining is complex . 470 collisions occurred between the tool holder and the workpiece. Reason: Cutting tool with short effective length was selected. Fig: Reliability verification of NC programs

Prediction of cutting force and cutting parameters optimization: Current parameters optimization must be carried out on consideration of cutting force. Fig: Comparison of the predicted Fig: Comparison of the predicted machine power to that of experimental machine power to that of experimental with cutting parameters optimization without cutting parameters optimization Error compensation: Errors calculated or predicted based on virtual inspection are used to modify the nominal NC program at sampling points to realize the improvement of machining accuracy.
