Investigation of Rotational-Axis and Linear-Axis Operation Based on Power Consumption with Desktop Five-Axis Controlled Machine Tools
Recently, the idea of sustainable development has become more and more important. In the previous report, we focus on downsizing industrial goods and discuss the environmental load of industrial goods. As a result, by downsizing machine tools we verified that the environmental load of mother machines in making copies of themselves could be reduced. On the other hand, we verified that the environmental load of use of the machine itself increased relatively. Thus, in desktop machine tools, we verified that reducing the environmental load of use of the machine itself would increasingly become an issue in the future. In this paper, we discuss methods of using desktop machine tools from the aspect of power consumption. As a result, we verified that in cutting along the linear-axis and rotational-axis, we have to consider back clearance after cutting.
