Growing industrial demand for faster machine tools, makes feed-rate and trajectory optimization a challenging problem in machining processes. One of the most challenging machining operations for computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools is corner tracking. In this scenario, most of the conventional feed-rate optimization approaches sacrifice speed for accuracy. This paper, proposes a new feed-rate and trajectory optimization algorithm for CNC machines. At each corner of the trajectory, the presented algorithm regenerates the trajectory, using a circular move within a desired tolerance limit. Then, a new feed rate optimization method is employed, which enables the machine tool to travel at the maximum feasible velocity through the corners, while taking acceleration constraints into account. Experimental results for different desired tolerances indicate that the new algorithm achieves significantly shorter travel times than the theoretical minimum time trajectory with zero tolerance.
