Conference paper


The paper contains description and analysis of a new, fully original “Floating Principle” for design of “Seismically Balanced Machine Tools” as a new class of future HSC machine tools. Along this principle, the machine has two parts, moving in opposite directions and supporting respectively the workpiece and the tool. The feed driving force acts only between these moving parts and the transfer of its reaction force to the foundations is in the respective direction completely eliminated.
