Increased Part Accuracy

Increased Part Accuracy from Multitasking --> Consolidating machining operations from multiple machine tools into one multitasking machine improves machining accuracy. The graph below illustrates this—error stack-up from multiple machines goes away when there is only one machine tool with one machining cycle. This accuracy improvement has many positive implications. They include: Freedom to improve component designs—Make them mechanically or ergonomically more efficientBuilt-in geometrical inconsistencies no longer needed—Remove allowance for mismatch, for exampleCreate complex part geometries in one operation—Advantages include fewer fixtures and less toolingFaster product development—Test designs and alter them quickly and easily for faster time to marketDesign less expensive components—Create an integral gear or spline, for example, without manufacturing restrictions due to the kinematics or capability of the machine toolControl datum dependency
