Hebei university of technology, School of mechanical engineering 5340 Xiping Road, Beichen District, P.R.China
FTS (Fast Tool Servo) has always been an important method for manufacturing non-axisymmetric optical surface. In this paper, a novel tool path planning method is presented which plans tool path in two coordinate directions of a parallel structure 2 DOFs FTS simultaneously. Comparing with single DOF FTS, this method has significantly improved the ability of producing non-axisymmetric optical surface, such as ring torus surface.
