Development of a web-based manufacturing application system for rotational parts

Özsüer, Erhan
Developing process plans and part programs rapidly and correctly for CNC machine tools plays a vital role in manufacturing. This study is concerned with the development of a web-enabled virtual design and manufacturing application system for rotational parts. The object oriented methodology is used in the application development. Windows Distributed interNet Application (DNA) architecture which describes a framework of building software technologies in an integrated web and client-server model of computing, is employed in the system. The entire system was modeled with Unified Modeling Language (UML), which is an industry-standard visual modeling notation to express software development architectures. Feature-based design approach, being a practical way of linking the design with manufacturing, is implemented in the rotational part design. Users have to be registered in order to use the system. With the supplied web site, users can easily register to system. After registration, the user obtains a password and a unique username. Upon the user authentication, the user session starts. A typical user session involves new or past project selection, material selection, part sketching, blank size definition and cutting parameters determination. After all the steps are completed, process plan and part-program, which are required to manufacture the part on Denford Mirac CNC Turning Machine are generated and displayed on the web site and then saved to the database. The application enables the users to see past projects and to generate new process plan and part programs for different cutting parameters. The process plan, part program and the 2D wire frame drawing of the corresponding part are demonstrated on the web site for the chosen projects.


Simulator of an additive and subtractive type of hybrid manufacturing system

Additive Manufacturing (AM) facilitates the production of intricate objects despite its weakness in attainable part quality and fabrication speed compared to the conventional manufacturing methods. To alleviate the problems arising as a natural outcome of AM methods, hybrid technologies become viable options by employing concurrent manufacturing procedures, e.g. synergetic additive and subtractive manufacturing (SM) actions. Hybrid workstations have recently opened up new dimensions to 3D-printing industry,...
Design of a high precision hybrid AM machine
Yılmaz, Yunus Emre; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Precision requirements in fused deposition modelling (FDM) processes have been increasing in recent years, especially after recognizing the potential of FDM process to produce complex and functional components. In order to increase precision of FDM process, 6-axis hybrid manufacturing system, which can carry out additive- and subtractive manufacturing processes in one manufacturing system platform, is designed. During design, kinematic analysis of the machine is done, axial- and angular errors are estimated...
A continuous path planning approach on Voronoi diagrams for robotics and manufacturing applications
Özcan, Melih; Yaman, Ulaş (2019-01-01)
Coverage of an area is required for a large variety of robotics and manufacturing applications, such as environment monitoring, home cleaning, search and rescue operations, machining, delivery, additive manufacturing and even for 3D terrain reconstruction. In this work, we present highly flexible algorithms that can be used for coverage and graph traversal. Although our methods take advantage of variable-sized Voronoi cells, by which regular, irregular and complex geometries can be easily composed, it is no...

New manufacturing technologies such as nontraditional manufacturing methods (NMM) were needed recently because of new machining requirements for parts with complex geometries, very narrow machining area and high strength materials and also for very small and delicate parts. Since NMM are diverse and their numbers are increasing with the development of new approaches, selecting the most appropriate one among many NMM requires systematic models which incorporate multi-criteria decision making approaches. In t...
Proposal and evaluation of a KBE-RM selection system
Munguia, Javier; Bernard, Alain; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve (Emerald, 2011-01-01)
Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to propose and evaluate a novel tool for the assessment and selection of rapid prototyping (RP)/manufacturing (RM) systems as alternative processes for low-volume production in the machinery and equipment design sector. By analysing previous RP/RM selectors, this research addresses the necessary factors that a knowledge-based engineering (KBE) system must include for the analysis, comparison and ranking of candidate technologies.
