The definition of machining processes with respect to complex kinematic machine tool behaviour involves the control of machine accuracy and kinematic performances. The aim is to propose process settings and tool paths which guarantee the required machining quality while maximizing productivity. This article presents an experimental protocol which enables the determination of machine tool structure behaviours which have an influence on machining quality. In parallel, an experimental analysis of the different kinds of settings which can improve machining quality is carried out. Two kinds of settings appear: the first class of settings improves machining quality or machining time, and the second class has an antagonistic influence on machining quality and machining time. Thus, the definition of the second class of settings arises from an optimisation between first-order defects, second-order defects and machining time. The developed method is illustrated on a parallel kinematic machine tool, the Tripteor X7. Note that this study is a first step towards controlling machine tool behaviour during machining.
