Geometric error modeling and compensation for five-axis CNC gear profile grinding machine tools

Geometric error modeling and compensation for five-axis CNC gear profile grinding machine tools The relative position and orientation deviation between grinding wheel and workpiece caused by geometric errors affect the machining accuracy of five-axis CNC gear profile grinding machine tools directly. Therefore, geometric error modeling and compensation are presented according to homogeneous transformation and differential motion matrix based on the multi-body system theory for the accuracy enhancement of the machine tools. Firstly, the open kinematic chain and the ideal homogeneous transformation matrix from workpiece to grinding wheel are established according to the topological structure of the CFXZAY-type, five-axis gear profile grinding machine tools and the basic homogeneous transformation matrix between coordinate frames. Secondly, the homogenous transformation matrices of linear pairs and rotary pairs with geometric errors are calculated, and the relationships of the error propagation from workpiece to grinding wheel are acquired as well on the basis of 37 geometric error components analysis. The geometric error models including position and orientation errors of grinding wheel in workpiece coordinate system are obtained with matrix multiplication by using small-angle approximation and ignoring the second-order and high-order error terms. Then, the Jacobian is obtained by using transforming differential motion matrix of each motion axis to compensate the integrated error components of the grinding wheel, which can make the compensation effective and convenient with using the corresponding homogeneous transformation matrix. Finally, error measurement, error compensation, and machining experiments are carried out on a five-axis CNC gear profile grinding machine tool SKMC-1200W/10 to verify the applicability and effectiveness of the proposed error modeling, error compensation, and research approach.
