Dispersed grinding wheel profiles are proposed to replace its ideal ones for planning 3D tool paths in CNC grinding. Its advantage is to register irregular and discontinuous grinding wheel profiles and directly eliminate their form-truing error for the accurate freeform surfaces of a large-size workpiece. First, the actually form-trued grinding wheel profiles were dispersed to be a tool point cloud by rotating the measured 2D wheel-section profile points; then a discrete-form algorithm was… CONTINUE READING
