Selecting Flat End Mills for 2-1/2D Milling Operations
The size of milling cutter significantly affects the machining time. Therefore, in order to perform milling operations efficiently, we need to select a set of milling cutters with optimal sizes. It is difficult for human ...
A Geometric Algorithm for Finding the Largest Milling Cutter
In this paper, we describe a new geometric algorithm to determine the largest feasible cutter size for2-D milling operations to be performed using a single cutter. In particular:<p>1. We give a general definition of the ...
A Geometric Algorithm for Multi-Part Milling Cutter Selection
Mass customization results in smaller batch sizes in manufacturing that require large numbers of setup and tool changes. The traditional process planning that generates plans for one part at a time is no longer applicable. ...
