• 5-axis double-flank CNC machining of spiral bevel gears via custom-shaped milling tools -- Part I: modeling and simulation ﻿

(2019-11-20)
A new category of 5-axis flank computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining, called \emph{double-flank}, is presented. Instead of using a predefined set of milling tools, we use the shape of the milling tool as a free ...
• Automatic fitting of conical envelopes to free-form surfaces for flank CNC machining ﻿

(2017-10)
We propose a new algorithm to detect patches of free-form surfaces that can be well approximated by envelopes of a rotational cone under a rigid body motion. These conical envelopes are a preferable choice from the ...
• Highly-accurate 5-axis flank CNC machining with conical tools ﻿

(2018-04)
A new method for $5$-axis flank computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining using a predefined set of tappered ball-end-mill tools (aka conical) cutters is proposed. The space of lines that admit tangential motion of ...
• On initialization of milling paths for 5-axis flank CNC machining of free-form surfaces with general milling tools ﻿

(2019-03-27)
We propose a path-planning algorithm for 5-axis flank CNC machining with general tools of varying curvature. Our approach generalizes the initialization strategy introduced for conical tools [Bo et al., 2017] to arbitrary ...
