Abstract

In manufacturing operations the availability of machine tools is critical to plant efficiency. A maintenance audit has been conducted at a facility operating high accuracy non-ferrous investment casting and high speed CNC milling. Maintenance has been planned using RCM derived methods. Novel condition monitoring techniques have been developed to prevent axis and spindle faults which rapidly affect finish quality. This paper reports progress in the integration of on-line error correction and condition monitoring. 1 Introduction The operation of the machine
