Abstract

Machining accuracy is heavily influenced by contact region deformation. In turn contact region deformation is dependent upon the mechanical leverage provided by the machining fixture. This paper presents the concept of mechanical leverage as it applies to a fixture restraining a workpiece throughout a series of machining operations. It presents an algorithm for determining the fixture element positions and the actuator intensities which provide the maximum mechanical leverage. Finally it illustrates an example application.
