Advanced Numerical Methods to Optimize Cutting Operations of Five Axis Milling Machines

by Stanislav S. Makhanov, Weerachai Anotaipaiboon

Series: Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing

This book presents new optimization algorithms designed to improve the efficiency of tool paths for five-axis NC machining of sculptured surfaces. The book covers both the structure of the SLAM problem in general and proposes a new extremely efficient approach. It can be used by undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in the field of NC machining and CAD/CAM as well as by corporate research groups for advanced optimization of cutting operations.

In The Press

From the reviews:

"The book can be used as introductory material in a university CAM course and … appropriate for R&D at the levels of undergraduate and graduate university programs and in corporations. … it serve as an entry point to the subject for mathematicians looking for new applications."
