||The main goal of this thesis is to propose a strategy which can integrate the precision hydrodynamic polishing system with an ordinary CNC machine tool. This integrated CNC machine tool is capable of applying the hydrodynamic polishing process, which is a high-precision machining method, to compensate the form error on a work surface to improve its form precision. With such a compensation capability, a low-cost CNC machine tool may play the function of precision machining as well as an expensive CNC machine tool does. It is hoped that with this function equipped in a CNC machine tool the international competition of the domestic machining industry can be enhanced.|
The complete integrating scheme is composed of three parts. The first part is the hardware of polishing system, which is required to attach to the CNC machine tool. The second one is the software developed in this thesis. It includes the codes to generate the commands to control the CNC machine tool and the attached polishing system. The final one is coordinating system that is to synchronize the actions of the CNC machine tool and polishing system. It is done by requiring the polishing system to match the actions of machine tool through measuring the configuration of machine tool consistently. Because of the first and third parts, no modification to the machine tool is needed and the requirement to read the internal information of CNC controller is waved. This will significantly reduce the complexity in implementing the integrating job.
When properly integrated with the required sensors, the software developed in this thesis can harmonize the actions of the polishing system and machine tool to execute the form error compensation task. The software will automatically generate the commands for the polishing system and machine tool based on the geometric and material data of work. It does not require the user to fully comprehend the function of the CAM software and the details of polishing process. This will obviously reduce the skill requirement of operator and facilitate the use of the integrated system. Since the CNC machine tool only plays the function of offering the three translational motions (in X, Y, and Z directions), the application of this strategy to an ordinary CNC machine tool is straightforward.
