3D machining system for artistic wooden paint rollers


In this chapter, an intelligent machining system based on an NC machine tool with a rotary unit is introduced to efficiently and easily produce many kinds of artistically designed wooden paint rollers. A post-processor with the fuzzy feed rate generator is also presented to effectively make the machining system run. The post-processor allows the NC machine tool to easily transcribe a relief design from the surface on a flat model to the one on a cylindrical workpiece. The fuzzy feed rate generator generates suitable feed rate values according to the curvature of each relief design. Experimental results show that artistically designed wooden paint rollers can be successfully carved ...
