Abstract

This paper presents an integrated platform for modelling and measurement of freeform surface generation in ultra-precision raster milling. It is composed of several components which are optics design component, tool path generator, modelling system, measurement system, evaluation component, compensation component and optimization component, respectively. The research emphasizes on modelling and simulation of freeform surface generation, the prediction of the cutting performance and hence the optimization of cutting strategy in the ultra-precision raster milling of freeform surfaces. A measurement system is also proposed to carry out a fast and efficient measurement plan of freeform surfaces. Non-uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS) will be employed for the development of the integrated platform which will meet Standard for the Exchange of Product model data (STEP).
