5-axis Flank Milling Free-form Surfaces Considering Constraints


A new tool path generation method of flank milling considering constraints is proposed for ball-end cutters in this paper. It will not only reduce the machining error range but also meet the following two constraints: (a) The ball end of the milling tool is tangential to the constraint surface; (b) There is no overcut and theminimum error is zero, which is… (More)
