Poxton, Anthony, Longstaff, Andrew P., Barrans, Simon, Myers, Alan, Fletcher, Simon and Pislaru, Crinela (2008) Simulation of the structural elements of a three axis VMC for machine tool error compensation. In: Proceedings of Computing and Engineering Annual Researchers' Conference 2008: CEARC’08. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 23-27. ISBN 978-1-86218-067-3

Great interest is being made by manufacturers and end users in the reduction of inherent errors which occur in the design and manufacture of machine tools. This paper describes offline methods used for simulation and analysis of a three axis vertical machining centre (VMC) for the reduction and compensation of non-rigid errors. Models of the kinematic linked structural elements are described and the methods used for verification of results.
