Locators and Sensors for Automated Coordinate Checking Fixtures
This article proposes a systematic method for the optimal design of sensor locations for an automated Coordinate Checking Fixture (CCF). The fixture can be employed for making at-machine assessments of the dimensional ...
Stiffness Modeling of a Stewart Platform Based Milling Machine"
This paper presents the development of a mathematical model describing the stiffness of a Stewart-platform-based milling machine. Matrix structural analysis is used to derive the stiffness matrix for each of the elements ...
Dynamic Variation of the Workspace of an Octahedral Hexapod Machine Tool During Machining
A method is presented to evaluate the workspace variation of a Stewart platform based machine tool. Four sets of constraints, covering strut lengths, platform spherical joint angles, base spherical joint angles, and strut ...
