Optimization of High Speed Machine Tool Frames
The article presents elaboration of problems pertaining to the evaluation of design variants of machine tool frames. The presented method has been implemented in the optimization process of geometrical parameters of frames, such as: dimensions, thickness and layout of walls. The solution obtained as the result of optimization process has been compared to the ideal variant, which in this case was a machine tool with frames suggested by the designer.
