Machine tool simulation
Improve your machine tool with the help of CAE simulation
Machine tools must meet a wide range of requirements. From the user's point of view, for example, high productivity and reliability are crucial. For the machine tool manufacturer, this means, among other things, enabling process parameters that are as efficient as possible, such as fast infeed with stable processes.
Unstable processes can manifest themselves in the form of oscillations (rattling). For this reason, high static and dynamic stiffnesses of the entire machine are required, since unstable processes can not exploit the theoretically available performance of a machine tool. This is where the RecurDyn MachineTool comes in. For example, vibration problems, rattling marks, circularity tests, ball screws, crosstalks can be simulated.
The RecurDyn MachineTool is based on a dynamic FEM approach that can map large positioning movements and integrate the machine control system.
Thus, the structure of the machine tool can be analyzed and virtually optimized. The structural improvements determined in this way can then be implemented in the next step.
