Higher Precision for Machining Centers in Automated Large-Batch Production
Large-batch production in the automotive industry is in the midst of a change. For example, inflexible transfer lines are increasingly replaced by lines with chained machining centers so as to improve flexibility in the mechanical machining of vehicle powertrain components.
The produced tolerances of a workpiece depend on the individual machines or sub-processes of the complete production system.
Linear encoders in Closed Loop control contribute to improving the machining accuracy so that the increased tolerance reserve is available for extending the service life of tools, for example.
