CappsNC Machine Tool Feedback
CappsNC has options to perform automatic adjusments to manufacturing process by
calcuating work offsets, cutter tool compensations or by using variables
that could be used to control the cutting tool program flow.
Work Offset Feedback: This could be done by either using a
location feature or calculating a complex alignment, i.e best-fitting a surface
profile to a CAD model. Any work offset on the controllers own method can
updated for translation and rotation allowing a 6dof fitting. The works offset
feedback is programmed into the measurement DMIS programme and can be updated
automatically as the program is being executed or displayed by the user
verification before updating on the controller.
Cutter Tool Compensation: This can be pefromed for any number of cutting tools by
calculating the error profiles of shapes cut by each cutting tool and applying a
method of compensation designated by the programmer for length, radius or
combination of both.
