Abstract

This paper presents a form grinding simulation of twin-screw compressor rotors with high precision. The simulation interface has been developed using VB.NET programming language based on SWAPI (SolidWorks Application Programming Interface), and the mathematical model of rotor form grinding has been established for generating the tool-feeding path. Based on the proposed procedure, the machined rotor model can be rapidly obtained with the required precision. Furthermore, the grinding area and tool abrasion on the grinding wheel can be both estimated and displayed through the use of existing SW tools for longevity assessment.
