Structural Design and Optimization of a 3-Axis Miniaturized Machine Tool with High Precision Positioning Stages
The procedure of structural design on miniaturized machine tool (mMT) is proposed and structural optimization by applying robustness evaluation method is presented in this paper. The design procedure of a kind of mMT which is a 3-axis miniaturized milling machine tool (mMMT) is discussed and three different structures of mMMT are proposed based on previous design procedure. The most suitable structure is selected using robustness evaluation method, which is Taguchi method, due to volumetric error function. The design parameters of selected structure are optimized.
