This paper deals with the development of a Computer-Aided Robotic Machining Process Planning package based on SolidWorks. The main aim of the package is to generate an efficient, collision-free, nominal tool path needed for edge finishing and inspection by utilizing a 6-DoF robotic arm. The overall nominal tool path involves analyzing the geometry of the workpiece, determining and designing an efficient collision-free tool path and finally generating the tool path data for the robot and verifying it. This package significantly simplifies the complexity of planning an efficient path for performing edge finishing and inspection. ABB IRB2000 robot is chosen for executing the generated tool path. Ultimately, such path is to be utilized as the nominal tool path by any control strategy present in the literature for a complete automatic edge finishing process.

Rapid prototyping methods embrace a family of manufacturing methods that are developed to speed up the prototyping stage of product design. The sole needed input for production being the solid model of the part, mold/tool-free production characteristics and the geometric part complexity that can be achieved due to layer-by-layer production have extended the applicability/research areas of these methods beyond prototyping. Local pore formation in part that occurs as a result of the discrete manufacturing nat...
Development of postprocessor, simulation and verification software for a five-axis CNC milling machine
Cengiz, Ender; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
Five-axis CNC milling machine tools bring great facility to produce complex workpieces with increased dimensional accuracy and better surface quality in shorter machining times. However, kinematics of five-axis machine tools has a complex form which makes it difficult to operate these machine tools properly. The difficulty arises from the complexity of NC-Code generation and tool path verification. Collision of machine tool or setup components with each other is a severe problem in five-axis machining opera...
