Since 2012, the Working Group Precision Machining of Large Components has been working on the development of new technologies and strategies for the precise production and testing of large components in order to maintain the technological lead in international competition.

In recent years, the focus has been on the thermo-elastic behaviour of machine tools and workpieces, as this has a significant influence on the achievable manufacturing quality for machining large components. At present, a systematic procedure is being developed for the qualification of machine tools for the geometric testing of workpiece geometry - traceable measurement on a machine tool. The Working Group works in cooperation with 11 companies from the fields of large component machining, machine tool construction and metrology.
