“Flying machining” represents synchronization of an axis (slave) with a master axis in motion. One of the most important aspects of the design of “flying machining” operation is the choice of the proper law of motion of the slave axis. In literature, technical reports and papers can be found concerning this subject, but they deal with specific problems and the solutions or suggestions proposed are specific as well, suitable for those cases. In order to try to overcome this limitation, in this paper we analyze the subject of the flying machining operations from a wider point of view. We propose a unified design procedure with general validity, suitable for the choice of the slave axis’ law of motion for whatever “flying machining” operation. Furthermore methodologies for the selection of the drive system will be proposed. The procedure is described applying it on a cross sealing operation, typical of wrapping machine.
