About Determining the Error Budget of a Miniaturized, Modular Machine Tool System for Micro Production

Abstract:

Article Preview

Since micro products have become smaller, the requirements concerning precision and accuracy for producing machine tools to manufacture such small parts increased. Consequently, each component of a machine tool needs to conform to these requirements. A flexure-based feed unit, a clamping system and mechanical couplings are briefly presented. These components can quickly be reconfigured, which allows for a new modular micro machine tool system. Each component incorporates individual precision and accuracy leading to an overall error budget for a machine tool system. This is methodically addressed in the contribution.
