Layer based micro-machining: new approach for tool-path generation

Popov, Krastimir Borisov and Petkov, Petko Vladev 2011. Layer based micro-machining: new approach for tool-path generation. CIRP Journal of Manufacturing Science and Technology 4 (4) , pp. 370-375. 10.1016/j.cirpj.2011.03.010

This paper proposes a new tool-path generation approach for layer-based micro machining (“conventional”, laser or EDM milling). With this approach, the laser spot non-conformity or EDM tool wear is compensated for by varying the layer machining angle and start point while the material removal volumes are represented by a sequence of 2D slices. Tool-path generation is performed taking into account the specific requirements of 3D micro-machining. The capabilities of the developed CAM system have been verified experimentally.
