Abstract

From 2010 to 2016, as part of the priority programme SPP1476 “Small Machine Tools for Small Workpieces” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) a new modular machine tools concept was scientifically established. The SPP1476 consisted of 13 projects from 18 leading institutes of Production Technology allocated to 13 German universities and research organisations. The objective of the priority programme was to solve the anomaly of an inappropriate machine tool size to workpiece size ratio. This was done by interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary development of new approaches for machine tools, which are used for manufacturing small parts, based on a methodical concept. By the consistent use of enablers which arise from miniaturisation, new allocation of machine elements to functions was possible. The individual project partners developed different modules for modular small machine tools. This includes various tools, feed units, a measurement system, machine frame, interface and other additional modules. Eventually, the generated methods have been validated by the realisation of prototypes and the configuration and assembling to functional machines tools.
