Özet

This paper proposes a novel method of collision-free fixture and tool space design for five-axis grinding, considering tool movement, machine degrees of freedom, the machine envelope, inspection, and related features. The fixture space is designed in three steps. First, the fixture space is generated as the remaining space after cutting out the tooling space (i.e. the sweeping space of the grinding wheel along the profile of the machined features). In this way, the fixture space is naturally collision-free with respect to tool movement. Second, the fixture space is further modified based on the constraints imposed by the grinding machine centre, which include over-travel distance, the positions of coolant nozzle and wheel dresser, and so on. Third, the fixture space is modified again according to measurements conducted by coordinate measuring machines and in-cycle machine probes. Interactions of fixture space with tool space, machine, and inspection are considered.
