Scope of Design Modification in CNC Vertical Milling Machine with improved Structure Stiffness & rigidity- A review
Keywords:NC,CNC Vertical Milling Machine, column, base, saddle, the stiffness & rigidity of structure
Need of continuous improvement in a product or process in this era of global competition leads to apply
value engineering for functional and aesthetic improvement in consideration with economical aspect to o.
In this paper many alternative technologies such as: using alternative materials, applying ribs and cut outs, obtaining a
box type shape, filling the interior space with metallic aluminum foam etc., are studied & observed for drawing bright
suggestions for improving structure stiffness & Rigidity.
Emphasis is certain on Structural ribs with hollow offers a method to improve the conventional design of machine
structure. Based on structural modifications, ribs parameters and distributions can be further optimized.
