Statics Analysis on Beam Structures of Large Five-Axis Machining Center Based on ANSYS
The stroke and the material characteristics of the large five-axis machining center were expounded; a structure similar to the truss of the reinforced beam plates was designed according to the design requirements of the beam structure, this structure could make the frame gain high rigidity in small size, the frame made by the rods could be constituted with high rigidity, the overall rigidity of the machining center could be improved 23% - 25%; three different beam structures were designed, and the finite element analysis software ANSYS was carried out to analyze their static characteristics, the maximum deformations in three directions X, Y, Z were obtained; compared with other structures through the comparisons on mass, stiffness and performance, the optimal structure was obtained, its mass was 1818Kg, and its maximum deformations in X, Y, Z directions were 0.45mm, 0.07mm and 0.13mm, respectively.
