Abstract

The workpiece contour errors from previous process affect current process. In order to improve workpiece allowance distribution, this article presents a workpiece registration and localization adjustment method with contact inspection. According to the analysis of machining deviation, the rotational and translational registration matrixes from multi-tolerance surfaces to workpiece are obtained by surface characteristic and translational vectors. The workpiece localization (position and orientation) adjustment can be realized by transforming coordinate systems of 5-axis machine tool. Through adaptive and iterative registration and adjustment, the optimized workpiece localization for current process is obtained. The experimental results show that the method can improve allowance uniformity effectively.
