  • A Design Methodology for Reconfigurable Milling Machine

    Abstract (summary) Reconfigurable Machine Tools (RMTs) have been developed in response to agile manufacturing demands. The prevalent modular approach for reconfigurability, in which a machine configuration is assembled for a given part, can be a demanding task time-wise and accuracy-wise, especially for smaller-scale Reconfigurable meso-Milling Machine Tools (RmMTs).
