Finite Element Analysis and Structure Optimization of Machine Tool Worktable
DVG850 high-speed machining center worktable is taken as research object, in order to meet the overall performance requirements of the high-speed machining center, 3D model of worktable is established in SolidWorks. Static analysis and modal analysis are carried out in ANSYS Workbench, and then the worktable is optimized in topology optimization module of ANSYS Workbench. According with the analysis results, the worktable structure has improved. The improved worktable keeps the original’s static performance, and enhances the dynamic performance; however, its quality is lighter than original structure by 23.2 kg.
