Hardware-software system for model-based analysis and optimization of metalworking processes with account of machine tool dynamics


 


Principle of operation

Operation principle of the system is based on preliminary diagnostics of machine tools (Fig. 1) and detecting features of their work under various cutting conditions (such as wobbling, vibrations etc.) caused by wear of the equipment and particular qualities of specific details. The above information makes it possible to simulate various cutting modes as applied to the specific task, and select the optimal set of process parameters (such as axis velocity, rotation, cutting angle, tool geometry etc.) in order to provide a combination of higher productivity and quality of processing.


Innovative value of solution
