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