Furthermore, the measuring machine calculates the illumination intensity that can vary from workpiece to workpiece.
The review showed that the numerical simulation of this process is conditioned by a lot of conventionalities and uncertainties as well as highly depend on various factors such as material properties, drilling regimes, geometrical parameters of a tool and a workpiece, etc.
Located and clamped in the fixture, workpiece is under dynamic loads during machining.
During the carrying out of the forging processes, the contact surfaces of the workpiece are covered with lubricant.
The optimal clamping forces are defined as the minimum clamping forces necessary to keep the workpiece in static equilibrium throughout the entire machining process.
The online measurement system of surface roughness of a workpiece consisted of a personal computer, a laser sensor, an analog to digital (A/D) conversion board with 12-bit resolution, and a CNC machine.
X- and Z-axis are on the transversal bar, C-axis turns the rotational symmetric workpiece and the B-axis facilitates the normal positioning of the tool everywhere on the surface (figure 1).
Typical condition parameters might be temperature, workpiece thermal expansion coefficient, etc.
Two turning tools opposite one another machine the workpiece simultaneously, enabling the machining time to be significantly reduced.
Furthermore, the direct application of the lapping method restricts the possibility of achieving high precision in surface shape not only because of wear and deformation of the polishing material, but also because of significant thermal deformation of the workpiece.
Machining is a most frequently employed manufacturing operation to remove unnecessary materials from workpiece and to form desirable shapes with dimensional accuracy.
