Frequency Topology Optimization and Lightweight Design of High-Speed Turning Center's Slide Board
This paper focuses on a general weight lightening method of machine tool's key moving parts based on frequency topology optimization and dimension optimization using Ansys workbench and Ansys classic interface. First, preparations of frequency topology optimization, including setting material, applying constraints and loads, meshing of the high-speed turning center HTC2550hs slide board were done in Ansys Workbench; Second, frequency topology optimization was performed in Ansys classic interface, and the preliminary light weighted model of the slide board was obtained; then, for important parameters of the removal parts that affect slide board's dynamic performance much, dimension optimization was performed. Finally, we achieve that the slide board's weight is reduced by 11.03%, while its first and second natural frequencies are increased.
