1 Answer

Answer :

Following are the factors to be considered in selecting components of CNC machines?

1. High precision and repeatability.

2. Reliability.

3. Efficiency

-To meet the requirement of high precision. Repeatability and high efficiency the numerically controlled machine tools

-should have a structure that is correctly designed to withstand normal weight distribution

-The machine structure should not be bend due to heavy cutting force.

-All the parts of machine structure should remain in relative relationship regardless magnitude and directions of stress develop due to cutting forces.

-The design should be such that the thermal distortion should be minimum.

-The machine structure should be provide with efficient and foolproof lubrication and cooling system.The machine structure should be such that removal of swarf is easy and the chips do not fall on the slideways.
