Machine Tools and High-Precision Manufacturing Systems

Content

The lecture gives an overview of the construction, use and application of machine tools and high-precision manufacturing systems. In the course of the lecture a well-founded and practice-oriented knowledge for the selection, design and evaluation of machine tools and high-precision manufacturing systems is conveyed. First, the main components of the systems are systematically explained and their design principles as well as the integral system design are discussed. Subsequently, the use and application of machine tools and high-precision manufacturing systems will be demonstrated using typical machine examples. Based on examples from current research and industrial applications, the latest developments are discussed, especially concerning the implementation of Industry 4.0.

The individual topics are:

  • Structural components of dynamic manufacturing Systems
  • Feed axes: High-precision positioning
  • Spindles of cutting machine Tools
  • Peripheral Equipment
  • Machine control unit
  • Metrological Evaluation
  • Maintenance strategies and condition Monitoring
  • Process Monitoring
  • Development process for machine tools and high-precision manufacturing Systems
  • Machine examples
