  • To design parts satisfying physical property in the continuous region, we do it in the discrete rectangular mesh points. Then we obtain points data from parts design and usually construct the surface using least squares method. In such case, that surface has an oscillation in the ineffective region which is inadequate for physical phenomena or NC machining. To solve both problems simultaneously, we extend the surface smoothly to have small curvature in the extended region. Up to now, we use the least squares method for the parts design in Color Picture Tube or Color Display Tube but in this paper, we use functions which is easily controllable. This surface has no error within the effective region compared to the least squares method.

  • This paper presents algorithms for computing offsets of freeform curves. The approach first divides the original curve into several segments at the inflexion points. Based on the obtained new control polygon and its offsets, quadratic trigonometric splines are constructed to approximate the offset curves. Finally, the shape parameter value of trigonometric spline is determined to satisfy the required tolerance. The degree of the output curve is two, independent of the original curve's degree. Because of the great controllability, the proposed method can generate a completely overestimating offset curve by adjusting the value of the shape parameter, which guarantees no overcutting in NC machining. Furthermore, it also produces the lowest number of control points compared with other works.

  • In a design-to-manufacturing environment, the product data is shared by various CAD/CAM/CAE systems with little integration or substantial data redundancy. The main purpose of this paper is to build a database containing all the features required for STEP-NC machining and to show how a STEP-NC repository can support the complete process for machining. A STEP-NC database schema has been constructed and several query functions have been built for the purpose of implementing the retrieving system of a STEP-NC database. The EXPRESS data model of ISO 14649 has been mapped to the database data definition language of the Oracle database. To apply the STEP-NC database to an industry example, the ISO 14649 part program has been stored into the STEP-NC database. To implement example scenarios, the sample query interface has been built.

  • The purpose of this study is the development of CAM system which can cut and measure any shape by machining center and coordinate measuring machine. The overall goal of the CAM system is to achieve the CNC machining, from digitizing through to final cutting. The hardware of the system comprises PC and machining center, CMM. There are three steps in the CNC machining, (1) workpiece measuring on the CMM, (2) geometric modeling by the CAD system, (3) NC commands generation by the tool path compensated for tool nose radius. It is developed a software package, with which can conduct a micro CAM system in the PC without economical burden.

  • This study looks at plastic mold design for robots and mold manufacture, which is an injection mold branch at The Korea-China-Japan University Grand Prize Contest. Product analysis and layout, molding analysis, and upper and lower core design are carried out to design molds in 2D and 3D. After the design of the cores, NC machining software is used for simulation before actual manufacture. Before the production of end-product, test injection is done to troubleshoot problems like bad dimensions, burr, cracks and stepped pulley.

  • Unlike conventional single special cut methods, W-EDM is a combination of multiple-effects. This study focuses on the effects of second cut on the roughness of surfaces treated with W-EDM. W-EDM is, to a large extent, typical unmanned-machining equipment, which represents NC machining equipment that allows long-time full automation. W-EMD is getting popular as a precise machining technology and STD11 is frequently used in press die manufacture. In this study, the former is applied to the latter to look at the effects of second cut on the roughness of surfaces treated with W-EDM.

  • This paper introduces and illustrates the results of a new method fer offsetting triangular mesh by moving all vertices along the multiple normal vectors of a vertex. The multiple normal vectors of a vertex are set the same as the normal vectors of the faces surrounding the vertex, while the two vectors with the smallest difference are joined repeatedly until the difference is smaller than allowance. Offsetting with the multiple normal vectors of a vertex does not create a gap or overlap at the smooth edges, thereby making the mesh size uniform and the computation time short. In addition, this offsetting method is accurate at the sharp edges because the vertices are moved to the normal directions of faces and joined by the blend surface. The method is also useful for rapid prototyping and tool path generation if the triangular mesh is tessellated part of the solid models with curved surfaces and sharp edges. The suggested method and previous methods are implemented on a PC using C++ and illustrated using an OpenGL library.

  • The paper discusses new approach for machining operation simulation using enhanced Z map algorithm. To extract the required geometric information from NC code, suggested algorithm uses supersampling method to enhance the efficiency of a simulation process. By executing redundant Boolean operations in a grid cell and averaging down calculated data, presented algorithm can accurately represent material removal volume though tool swept volume is negligibly small. Supersampling method is the most common form of antialiasing and usually used with polygon mesh rendering in computer graphics. The key advantage of enhanced Z map model is that the data structure is same with conventional Z map model, though it can acquire higher accuracy and reliability with same or lower computation time. By simulating machining operation efficiently, this system can be used to improve the reliability and efficiency of NC machining process as well as the quality of the final product.

  • In the surface measurement system using touch probe, probe radius compensation is a key factor for accuracy. In this paper we investigate methods for compensating probe radius so that the surface equation for an "unknown surface" can be efficiently derived. The developed algorithm derives the surface equation by the iterative procedure of estimation, verification, and modification . Since the procedure is applied only for the surface region exceeding the tolerance limit, an accurate surface equation can be obtained with less computation and measurement point. The validity and effectiveness of the algorithm was tested by numerical simulations. The results convinced us that the develop algorithm can be used for surface measurement and tool path planning for NC machining.
