Machine Setup


The goal of the kinematic setup is to express the (n+M)parameters q1, q2,…,qn+M of the FSF through parameters of the target element (machined workpiece, measured part, assembled parts, etc.). In robotics, this procedure is known as the inverse kinematics problem, whose solution has been studied in detail during past decades. Industrial robots, modern machine tools and CMMs are produced as flexible machines for multifunctional applications to provide a wide spectrum of technological operations. As is customary in high-technology equipment, two interrelated tools are applied to provide flexibility and multi-functionality:

6.1Problem Formulation
6.2Constraint synthesis
6.3Setup of Multi-Axis Machines
6.4Lathe setup
6.5Setup of the gearing and threading machines
