Özkırımlı, Ömer M. and Tunç, Taner L. and Budak, Erhan (2011) Simulation of multi-axis machining processes using z-mapping technique. In: 6th International Conference and Exhibition on Design and Production of Machines and Dies/Molds, Ankara, Turkey
Parameter selection in machining operations is curial for product quality and high productivity. Process parameters such as feed, spindle speed and depth of cuts are often chosen by trial-error methods. Mathematical models can be employed to predict the mechanics and the dynamics of the process. In this study, Z-mapping technique is utilized to simulate the process step by step by updating the workpiece according the given tool path where the cutter engagement areas are also determined. Using the numerical generalized process model, whole process is simulated for any milling tool geometry including intricate profiling tools, serrated cutters and tools with variable edge geometries.
