Machine tools rank among the most important means of production of the metalworking industry. As variety of machine tools regarding their structural design and degree automation follows the broad range of applications. According to the technological process machine tools can be broken into forming, separating and joing machines. Due to the high requirements on performance and accuracy of these machines, the engineering has to ensure the optimal design and dimensioning of the individual machine components as well as of the overall concept. A comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the physical properties of the components, function elements, drives and control is required. In the lecture an exercise - Machine Tools - these basis knowledge is taught.

Lecture Topics

  • Types of machines, design and applications
  • Constructive design and calculation of machine components (beds, frames, guides, bearings)
  • Metrological machine investigation and evaluation (static, dynamic, geometric, kinematic, acoustic and thermal)
  • Main and feed drives
  • Position measuring systems
