Structure Analysis and Optimization for High-Speed Vertical Machining Tool Table
In order to meet high-speed machining center’s overall performance requirements, there are four different worktable structures established in SolidWorks, and they are carried out static analysis in ANSYS Workbench to calculate their static stiffness, so that find out the best structure. In meeting the worktable stiffness, the best structure is optimized in ANSYS Workbench, then the worktable’s quality reduces 8.43% in the original foundation and the cost also decreases, which is a basis for worktable’s dynamic performance analysis.
