    • Analysis of CNC software modules regarding parallelization capability 

      Keinert, Matthias; Kaiser, Benjamin; Lechler, Armin; Verl, Alexander (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      The software design of current CNC systems is of limited suitability for real parallel execution on multicore systems. Even though CNC systems are rudimentarily designed in a modular way, a good load balancing and therefore ...
    • Auto-recovery from machining stoppages based on STEP-NC 

      Sang, Zhiqian; Xu, Xun, 1959- (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      Machining stoppage occurs from time to time due to various reasons. For the current CNC system using G/M code as part program, to recovery from the stoppage, the operator needs to scroll the part program to find the specific ...
    • Design of a low-cost fiber optical occlusion based automatic tool setter for micro milling machine 

      Liu, Xinyu; Zhu, Weihang (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      The objective of this research is to create an inexpensive, automated tool setter to reduce the overall tool set up time. The project focused on addressing the tool setting in the Z-axis (spindle axis), which is needed for ...
    • Rough-cut machining an impeller with 3-axis and 5-axis NC machines 

      M. A. Suhaimi; Kim, Dong-Won; Lee, Jong-Yeong; Velásquez Arriaza, Oscar (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      This study presents an efficient rough-cutting strategy for machining a centrifugal impeller. Much of the machining time is consumed in rough cutting, where unnecessary stock materials are removed in between impeller blades. ...
    • Tool path generation considering NC block-based machining stability 

      Lee, Cheol-Soo; Heo, Eun-Young; Lee, Dong Yoon; Kim, Jong-Min; Kim, Dong-Won (Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing, 2014)
      The industrial and increasing requirements of aesthetic products force the shape of product to have the complex 3D shapes. It is common to manufacture such products through three machining steps: rough machining, semi-finishing ...
