This paper presents a predictor-corrector interpolator (PCI) for the CNC machining of parts with parametric curves or surfaces. In contrast to existing parametric interpolators, the proposed method uses a simple algorithm as a predictor and the current feedrate command feedback compensation scheme as the corrector. The predictor adjusts itself according to the current feedrate command feedback, it also has the capability of predicting the next reference point of the parametric curves from the current reference point. As a result, the deviations between the current and desired feedrate commands will always fall within the specified feedrate command tolerances. This study aims at developing the mathematical analysis of the PCI, where the convergence condition is derived for the corrector. In this present approach, the user can specify either constant or variable federate and also its feedrate command accuracy. Both the simulation and experiment results are presented to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed PCI for machining the parametric curves represented in the Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS) form.
