Performance evaluation of the BostoMatic 300 machining center

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The BostoMatic 300 (BM300) machining center is an integral part of an ongoing Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) titled ``Intelligent Tools for On-Machine Acceptance of Precision Machined Components``. On-Machine Acceptance (OMA) is a new agile manufacturing concept being developed for machine tools at SNL. The concept behind OMA is the integration of product design, fabrication, and qualification processes. To achieve the OMA integration of design, fabrication and qualification processes, the BM300 will function as a fabrication and inspection tool. The BM300 performance evaluation took place in July and August of 1994. Tests were ... continued below

Description

The BostoMatic 300 (BM300) machining center is an integral part of an ongoing Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) titled ``Intelligent Tools for On-Machine Acceptance of Precision Machined Components``. On-Machine Acceptance (OMA) is a new agile manufacturing concept being developed for machine tools at SNL. The concept behind OMA is the integration of product design, fabrication, and qualification processes. To achieve the OMA integration of design, fabrication and qualification processes, the BM300 will function as a fabrication and inspection tool. The BM300 performance evaluation took place in July and August of 1994. Tests were conducted in the Advanced Manufacturing Process Laboratory (AMPL), Bldg 878, SNL/NM using a BM300 serial number MM-590. All testing was in accordance with ANSI/ASME B5.54-1992 ``Performance Evaluation of Numerically Controlled Machining Centers``, unless otherwise noted. The results of all tests were compiled and documented in Section 4.0. The ANSI B5.54 testing of the BM300 was divided into six areas. Those areas are linear displacement accuracy, angular displacement accuracy, axis of rotation (spindle), geometric accuracy, volumetric performance, and machine performance as a measuring tool. Details regarding the six tests and test equipment are documented in Section 4.0. As of August 1994 testing of the BM300 in the area of ``Machine Performance as a Measuring Tool`` had not been completed. Future testing in this area may incorporate the LDRD test part along with the appropriate ANSI B5.54 specification in determining the BM300 accuracy.
