As a result of this one workshop the CNC system on machining center uses the biggest 5 rods vector coordinate is inputted as the program, is not the G code that uses a convention, because this is complex,workpiece can be transferred easily from a machine tool undertake machining to another machine tool. Desemco company (be located in Georgia Marietta city) regard a very outstanding 5 axes in aerospace industry as job shops, it can undertake the full treatment project that arrives to be produced finally from the design. This price that has competition ability with its by the company that 15 people form, top-ranking production quality and exceedingly good deliver the goods on time record, the treatment business that won manufacturer of an around aerospace and other aerospace and national defence contractor. The special skill of Desemco company is to be engaged in aerospace industry the high accuracy treatment of intricate work, these workpiece by ferronickel alloy alloy of a kind aviation class aluminium alloy, titanium and material of high strenth alloy are made. The typical work that its process includes the pattern of carling, bulkhead, impeller and window gasket. To the spare parts of type of treatment so much, collect appliance to have 5 axes the machine tool of process capability is indispensable. Certain geometry appearance, resemble complex outline and bottom grooving for example, cannot machine production simply, unless cutting tool or workpiece are OK,with its rod of 3 his sharp movement coordinates ground linkage have a change of luck coming back to go at the same time. Below other condition, if cannot near the 5 treatment surface of the spare parts, so workpiece is sure to need those who undertake for many times to debug a setting, can affect the manufacturing time of the machine tool consequently, endanger treatment precision even. Stem from this reason, desemco company is devoted already gigantic endowment purchase 5 axes machining center. Among them volume is the largest with process capability the strongest is two machine tools that come from OKK company: KCV1000 and VP600. It is OK that KCV1000 machine tool deserves to have a very long workbench and stroke normally outspread the 137in that arrive (1in=25.

4mm) X axis. What this machine tool has treatment to be designed technically for the plane is longer the ability with greater work. Purchasing this machine tool is a main market strategical decision, because few job shops needs the machine tool of so large size, the X axis of its train in excess specified length, also make Desemco company can set a few lesser work areas on the different section of workbench. This kind of flexibility of the machine tool offerred huge tactics value to exercise attempers and produce a plan. This machine tool is belonged to " cutting tool rotates " kind type. Runner shaft coming back is located in inside head of main shaft treatment. Under photograph comparing, VP600 machine tool is belonged to " workbench rotates " kind type. Its rotate the axis is contained by of trunnion rotate workbench composition. What begin accumulation on long workbench machine tool besides processing is lesser 5 axes add workpiece besides, course of study of VP600 machine tool still can chain its rotate axis, as a function powerful 3 axes milling machine is used. Graph the 1 5 axes that deserve to have one specialty workbench machine a machine tool to have very big flexibility, can debug treatment through one-time outfit card already a large part, what also can machine a few smaller parts to regret in the setting on the different section of workbench is, the 5 axes machine tool that purchases two different configuration created an obstacle to expectant flexibility. Apply to the order of CNC of traditional G code that in cutting tool the aftertreatment on machine tool of transition coming back processes formerly, cannot use on the machine tool that workbench rotates. Transfer the treatment on another machine tool to attend work from a machine tool, personnel general must be the process designing of Desemco company the 2nd machine tool purchases proper aftertreatment implement, apply its at the data of cutting tool method that the place of software of 5 axes process designing that provides formerly by Mastercam company generates. Find this to be machine tool of the first OKK to develop an aftertreatment when Desemco company implement when company of Mastercam of this locality agency, they formulated a different method. Mastercam company thinks, the FANUC CNC system of this machine tool has a software, can make they handle coordinate of 5 axes vector directly, regard CNC as the input of the program. On the concept, this kind " vector process designing " can keep away from two difficulty. Because of the vector coordinate that generates by CAM system (X, Y, Z, I, J and K) the direction of cutting tool motion that will decide with spare parts geometry appearance matters only, accordingly they are belonged to " neuter kind of machine tool " . That is to say, need becomes these coordinate change the machine tool to the changeover that specific motion dictates is worth and be calculated the value has not gotten applied. This makes vector process designing carries easily: The input on a machine tool can be carried or convey to go up to another machine tool, need to do only a few revise or need not revise, can consider to use system of FANUC 300iS-Model A CNC on a machine tool even, system of a kind of 310iS-Model A5 CNC is used on another machine tool. Besides can solve problem of incompatible G code program besides, vector process designing is right certain aftertreatment implement the settlement of the problem also is very effective. Had vector input, when the order that executes a spare parts, normally by the aftertreatment implement executive complex maths problem, can undertake handling in CNC system now. This means an aftertreatment implement the simple translator function that has to apply basic data format to agree only. In addition, same aftertreatment implement, can use at planning the program that uses on aleatoric OKK machine tool now. The runner shaft coming back of any specific machine tools dictates, resemble fiducial restoration instruction for example, but by store the macroinstruction inside singular control system undertakes handling. The idea that this sounds pretty good like, but should realize this think of a way, need the joint efforts of an organization, the technical personnel of the machine tool agency that supplier of system of CAM software agency, CNC, place will involve here and Desemco company. Pass coact only, ability makes vector process designing becomes a successful reality quite. Sale director Mr Grant Salmon of Desemco company thinks, his workshop is so far the biggest person that be benefited: "When when us technology of will portable CNC demonstrates to our biggest aerospace client, left deep impression to them. They saw our 5 axes treatment has bigger flexibility and security. This gave them bigger hope, be clear that we are capable to handle intricate work, can finish the task on time. " the 5 axes that Mr Salmon enhances according to this process capability, also saw the development potential of its workshop business. Mr Salmon expresses: "We still plan to purchase a door of bigger 5 axes dragon type machine tool. To such machine tool, the function that has vector process designing is very need, only such, machine tool ability gets used to the treatment strategy with flexible workshop. " get to the bottom of sth traces to the source Desemco company is founded 2008, its droit vest in madam Ms. Karen of president Mr Salmon of this company, be in charge of managing by her. Mr Salmon has design and the experience that produce jet-propelled turbine part and background. Predict formerly according to them, regard a kind of avocation as its first, begin to be made from the production of jet-propelled turbine spare parts. However, mr Salmon sees very quickly, walk along aerospace to machine road of course of study in the round, can have the development way of the future most as its. In phase of company inchoate development, mr Salmon came up against Mr Dave Watson fitly, he is the CAD/CAM engineer that a plane from company of Marietta Losk Heed assembles a factory to retire. Besides CNC treatment facilities, this company has machine tool of numerical control of 5 5 axes now. However, the consist in of accurate process capability of Desemco company inside a bigger technical frame, the simulation that includes design and project major domain, process among them and optimize, quality assures and test and verify, and all sorts of metals machine craft, resemble the operation of treatment of Laser Cutting, Plasma Cutting, discharge and exact pattern workshop for example. Portable CNC program not only kept away from the machine tool is in an obstacle of workshop flexibility respect, and the development that also promoted Desemco company, this is why portable CNC program has the development perspective that makes a person delectable. Ms. Karen and Mr Salmon promoted the development of vector process designing with their peculiar driving force and technical force. They need to get the technology with the constant in a steady stream of business partner supports coming from them, the gain that because everybody can share them,scores in this project and interest. Mr Jimmy Wakeford is the president of Barefoot CNC company, it is the agency of Mastercam company. Pass the collaboration with Mr Watson, the software of Mastercam5 axis treatment that he believes firmly branch of this process designing can be installed use at generating corresponding vector coordinate, appliance of the place after making has deliver the capacity that plans a program for the machine tool. He still is mixed with Mr Eric Dechant clasp of Mr Todd Horton, former it is the district director that agency of region of company of FANUC FA United States is in charge of program of machine tool productivity; The Atlanta area that latter is branch of Phillips company Jeffreys Manufacturing Solutions sells an engineer, this company is the machine tool agency that this area is in charge of OKK series product. They solve what about parameter of certain machine tool alterable set is worth together the athletic limit problem with all sorts of detail problems and inherent place of system of every FANUC CNC on the machine tool. January 2012, desemco company blends in vector process designing completely his in the operation. 5 axes machine the CNC program that machine tool operator already will complete, from the file server of this workshop network download arrives in vector format, this kind of method already worked into their convention now. A program needs to be in the workshop is editorial the situation is very unusual, he can change code, run a part afresh, return the program of the change the server next. Nextpage can be as a result of similar program on any an OKK machine tools use, transfer work another machine tool from a machine tool, need not the help of process designing branch. Applied technology Mr Dechant in the system of CNC of head of treatment of main shaft of runner shaft coming back of graph 2OKK KCV1000 machine tool says, the main application technology of vector process designing depends on CNC system. Be in early 2000 when, FANUC company began to offer the vector process designing that supports some kind of form. His explanation says, use 5 rods as more and more manufacturers processing technique, manufacturer begins to introduce new machine tool design and different main shaft configuration, people is older and older also to the interest of vector process designing. Original, extend a series of this control systems when FANUC company (system of FANUC series 30i/31i/32i-Model A CNC) when, put the emphasis on the advanced function that develops by this company, in order to improve the manufacturing efficiency that 5 axes machine. Option of vector process designing complemented other CNC functions, have center like automatic labour for example (TCP) the control, control of cutting tool position (TPC) and the infinitesimal of TCP adjusts and high speed stability. All these functions apply complex software program to adjust the position of cutting tool and direction, in order to achieve more smooth with faster treatment effect. The 5 axes that preparing a spare parts when machine program, through will be an aftertreatment normally implement the changeover value of reservation and computational value incorporate together, vector process designing is OK further. Normally the circumstance falls, software of 5 axes CAM can generate two groups of corresponding geometry coordinate. X, Y and Z represented 3D space in a series of concentrated dot, it is close to the whole journey between point of a knife and workpiece surface almost. And I, J and K coordinate are represented in the cutting tool that gives length to go up journey of other one aspect of the matter. The vector that coordinate of X, Y, Z and I, J, K made position of affirmatory cutting tool and way together is worth. In the past, aftertreatment implement the job is from CAM system (it is CL data or similar pattern normally) in get data, it is OK to change its change its next in the code that some uses on specific machine tool. Position of the cutting tool length that goes up besides specific machine tool, diameter, pivot length, spare parts and besides any mechanical errors, this aftertreatment implement all computation cost that still will handle linear axis and place of position of runner shaft coming back to need. The program is to be " specific machine tool " of the design, any change in these variable need to return process designing branch to be made afresh. Had the advanced function of today's CNC system, this kind of circumstance will not happen again. Vector process designing the aftertreatment implement certain and crucial function changed CNC system. This makes the numerical control program that coordinate of coordinate of the X that comes from CAM system, Y, Z and I, J, K can regard a CNC as inputs means to undertake an input. Over the foundation that is based on appearance of spare parts geometry because of this input, is not the geometrical appearance of the machine tool, still withholding its consequently portable sex characteristic. Returning what must understand is, vector process designing controls a system to go up in FANUC 300iS-A and the 310iS-A5 control in OKK machine tool is very effective on the system, because it centralized the control function about cutting tool. Mr Dechant says: "They work together as a kit, in order to improve the manufacturing positive result that 5 axes machine. " with respect to its treatment spare parts character, mr Watson is very interested in successful vector process designing especially. The key job when his one's early years regards CAD/CAM of Losk Heed company as the engineer is to develop portable CNC. Mr Watson memory says: "In those days, a proposal that aerospace industry locates to using the cutting tool that makes by APT programming language data regards a machine tool as the input undertook study. " at that time, the department of defense pays close attention to this particularly pressingly one " preparation works " . Be in urgent in held martial meeting, the personnel of lay a course of department of defense is very afraid, lack portable CNC to will restrict the productivity that changes crucial weapon element another factory from a factory severely. This proposal requirement carries out this aftertreatment in the controller of the machine tool implement executive program. "During this, the development of CNC is such rapid, the pace that the effort that so that establishing institute of field of essential industry standard,makes cannot catch up with the times develops. The portable sex of CNC becomes the target of a within sight but beyond reach. " Mr Watson says. Mr Dechant approve of this one viewpoint: "The example of Desemco company focuses attention to the value of vector process designing again. FANUC company works those who make greater efforts, already fathom the true meaning of this term. " numerous advantage Mr Salmon says, vector process designing produced numerous tactics and strategic value advantage to Desemco company. On the contrary, the success of this workshop, also produced a positive ripple effect to participating in the supplier of this project. Offer to compare simple aftertreatment relatively implement, in be aimed at OKK5 axis machine tool among them a machine tool, with FANUC control system plans CNC program. Return the aftertreatment with identical hope implement what can be used at deserving to this workshop may purchase similar control system is other on machine tool of 5 axes treatment. This aftertreatment implement update, will ensure all and current 5 axes process designing and latest technology maintain with when all is entered. Use automation line exercise to remove trouble, aftertreatment time shortens greatly. This is helpful for process designing branch managing more time, before so that extend in CNC,the workshop is used, undertake complete test and verify is mixed optimize. Mr Salmon says, this are very important, because Desemco company already became imitate of CGTech company Vericut and a when optimize software extensive user. Because compare simple aftertreatment implement can undertake check thoroughly and be debugginged, it is better to can obtain consistency machine the effect with what have foresight more, quality problem decreases greatly. Same, the aftertreatment that carries out in CNC implement the function won't change. Once will optimal value and optimal setting are worth an input to arrive after the machine tool, the result that handles ever since will be identical from beginning to end. Mr Salmon report says, although this pair of function that improve handling time are negligible, but have materiality sense however, as a result of the program optimize, this will be helpful for surmount and machining periodic time quickly. Mr Salmon believes firmly, because use vector process designing, the motion of 5 axes is fluenter can improve exterior quality more, but he also admits, this still fail to give test and verify. Vector process designing is the differential that uses a market implement those who undertake discriminative, desemco company already became the leading sheep of this technology. The client's confidence is increasing ceaselessly, the working job that assumes because of this workshop is not those who depend on any main shaft is practical. This workshop is larger to installing change 5 axes the plan of planer-type milling machine has bigger hope, because of the aftertreatment implement the situation that produces incur loss through delay or difficulty is impossible it seems that. Produce resource as a kind, the flexibility of this machine tool will get assuring. Ripple effect participates in Desemco company to carry out vector process designing, the other personnel that works to participating in this group is very helpful also. For example, mr Wakeford predicts to be opposite ever since the responsibility pressure that processor develops is lesser. He says, the aftertreatment of a kind of CNC that uses vector process designing implement, represented place of process designing of traditional G code to need the one fraction of effort. Mr Horton saw one sells channel to sell more through cent the opportunity of 5 axes machine tool, because vector process designing reduced pair of aftertreatments implement practical the attention that spends with test and verify. He says, such attention often can make buy the home to flinch. Mr Dechant says, when Desemco company carries out vector process designing, can show its advanced technology to the other and existing client that matchs the 5 axes machine tool that has system of FANUC numerical control or potential user. He thinks, the advantage of vector process designing is to be able to give the market to bring a very large dominant position that has not develop. "Desemco company is one of a few companies that use vector process designing earlier, also be the user of option of process designing of the first true on much chance platform executive vector. They agree with completely the value that shows this one skill. " he says. The success that uses vector process designing also makes this workshop realize the 5 axes with OKK newest machine tool to machine a characteristic, and the tool center with flowing high speed (TCP) . This kind of characteristic includes cutting tool center to control attitude of system, cutting tool to control the functional character such as system and other algorithm, it is at the same time in the process that conceals cutting tool attitude, make cutting tool is in the condition of flowing motion. Global big move Mr Dechant thinks Desemco company will not be only case, the concept that uses a program as the input of CNC with vector format is not its proprietary means, an option that FANUC company offers this kind of ability to regard 5 axes machine tool as the user is not alone this one. "However, used the CNC system that deserves to have this kind of advanced technique to just walk out of the first pace. " his explanation says, "To achieve the goal that carries out it, must master the professional knowledge of CNC system backside, this is crucial. " Mr Dechant suggests job shops notices all 5 axes closely this one circumstance. Same, mr Salmon yearns for more popularize widely use this kind of technology. "All of us nots from the benefit on the powerful base of supplier of this country aerospace shallow. To us, especially important is, vector process designing makes concentration is strengthening our key to be not had from what design production seam connective over working ability. " he says.
