RTCP (rotation tool center point), which is one of the necessary functions for high-grade CNC machine tools, can effectively decrease nonlinear errors caused by the motion of the rotation axis and improve the accuracy of the machinery. Based on the characteristic that the cutting tool tip point is relative to the manufacturing workpiece, the RTCP trajectory is proposed to conveniently measure the displacement of the tool tip point. The scheme is utilized to study the dynamic performance of machine tools, and a simulation that shows the relationship between the tool tip error trajectory and the factors influencing the dynamic performance of the machine tool is presented based on the servo system model. Then, the experiment is carried out, and the tool tip point error variation is found to be consistent with the simulation result. This study provides theoretical support for dynamic performance detection of five-axis CNC machine tools.
