|Project Summary||Project Information|
Machine tool design involves the sizing and selection of various elements that provide the motion required to make the machine work. The elements need to be sized and selected based on the precision and force required for the process while taking into consideration the control and accuracy of the complete system.
One element that can provide such motion is a direct drive motor. While direct drive motors are used in machine tool design today, additional investigation is required to determine the appropriate design parameters for selecting and sizing the motors for a particular application.
The objective of this project is to develop a system where parameters that define the performance of a direct drive system can be modified and tested for viability in the final machine tool. The short-term goal would be to create the hardware necessary to mount and test a direct drive system according to the design parameters of a proposed future design. The long-term goal is to more deeply understand the impacts of motor selection, drive sizing and position feedback accuracy on smoothness of motion and dynamic stiffness of the system.
