Reconfigurable Machine Tool Design
- 2.1k Downloads
In today’s competitive markets, manufacturing systems must quickly respond to changing customer demands and ever-shorter product life cycles. Traditional transfer lines are designed for high volume production and operate in a fixed automation paradigm. They cannot, therefore, accommodate changes in the product design. On the other hand, conventional CNC-based “flexible” manufacturing systems may offer flexibility, but are generally slow and expensive because they are not optimized for any particular product or a family of products.
