Abstract
The manufacturing industry is heading towards a more digitized environment.
Sandvik Coromant is therefore developing intelligent tools, as well as software tools for machining applications. The aim for this thesis is to develop the understanding of a specific machining process. This is done through a background study of previously known methods, followed by development of a demonstrator to integrate machining data, and finally a case study to visualize a process.
Continuous development of methods and approaches are required to provide
efficient manufacturing processes. Simulations of a machining process is a helpful tool to gain knowledge about relationships between process data and the machining results. Verifying the simulation... (More)

The aim for this thesis is to develop the understanding of a specific machining process. This is done through a background study of previously known methods, followed by development of a demonstrator to integrate machining data, and finally a case study to visualize a process.
Continuous development of methods and approaches are required to provide
efficient manufacturing processes. Simulations of a machining process is a helpful tool to gain knowledge about relationships between process data and the machining results. Verifying the simulation results is a challenge, especially since every applications has its own requirements. Therefore, a case study is performed during this thesis work for the selected application.
A demonstrator for an integrated system has been developed using Integrated Feature based Metrology (IFM), which is an internally developed concept for connecting data from different machining stages. Pre-process data (digital models and process plans) is connected to in-process data (feed, speed, cutting forces etc.) as well as post-process data (geometric evaluations of the finished component). Deviations and correlations that can cause machining problems can be detected and analyzed through alignment of these types of data.
The developed demonstrator shows that it is possible to connect data from the three machining stages. A case study is included, where three blade machining processes are performed. Blade design, CAM software, machine and control system are unchanged, but the cutting data is altered for the different blades. Axis positions and feed rates are acquired from the machine control system, along with cutting forces, torques and vibrations from external sensors, to illustrate how the behavior changes for different cutting data. Most notably, the feed rate is varying more as its nominal value increases.
Future work includes applying the integrated system for machining processes with
more than three axes. More case studies should be performed to further verify the
functionality of the demonstrator. (Less)
