Abstract


The aim of the current research is to minimize the prototype testing of machine tools and machining operations in order to reduce production times and costs. The University of British Columbia has developed science based simulation algorithms which leads to virtual testing and optimization of machining operations.

The model predicts the cutting forces, torque and power consumed in machining parts by considering material properties, cutter geometry, and cutting conditions along the tool path. The structural dynamics of the machine tool can either be imported from Finite Element analysis if the machine tool is at the design stage or from the modal measurements if the machine is already built. The simulation system predicts chatter free cutting conditions within the work volume of the machine tool, or detects the presence of chatter vibrations along the tool path. The dynamics of servo drive control systems as well as trajectory generation as a function of jerk, acceleration and velocity profiles of machine tools are considered in simulating the machine tool behavior. An in-house developed CNC system which allows the design and analysis of five axis machine tool controller will also be introduced.

The algorithms are published in open literature (Google Scholar h-58 with over 12000 citations), as well as packaged in industrial software system which can be used as a process planning tool by production engineers or as an analysis module by machine tool builders (over 170 companies and research centers world-wide). We are currently investigating the damping of machine tool vibrations, stability of turning, drilling, boring, micro-cutting, threading of pipes and mill turn operations. The laboratory is building a five axis machining center and magnetic actuator based feed drives in collaboration with other researchers at UBC and abroad.
