Evolution of methods of assessing the accuracy of metal-cutting machines

  • A. P. Kuznetsov


The evolution of concepts of accuracy and attainable machining accuracy are considered. The physical aspects of accuracy are discussed. The changes in the level of precision since 1800 are outlined, with predictions of what is attainable in the future. The energy barrier to accuracy is analyzed for various cutting technologies.
