Abstract

The paper presents a new approach to the modelling and simulation of a CNC machine tool axis drive. Modules have been created for different parts of the CNC machine tool. This allows greater flexibility in the construction of the model and an investigation of the interaction between model components. In this way all the shortcomings of the traditional methods are overcome. MATLAB / SIMULINK package has been used to simulate this new model for a CNC machine tool. Simulation results are very good, in accordance with CNC machine tool theory. The described approach allows the easy construction of detailed machine tool drive models. It represents the basis for future incorporation of geometric, non-rigid a
