Topology Optimisation of Rotating Automation Components for Machine Tools – Methodology, Cost Effectiveness and Examples

Gerhard Kehl, Paul Jickeli, Martin Schietinger, David Blank

Abstract

Light weight constructions possess a variety of general benefits in application, such as higher energy efficiency, increase of acceleration or payload. But especially the reduction of costs over the entire product life cycle is increasingly in the focus. By application of topology optimisation for rotating automation components a significant improvement is possible. On the other hand any simulation effort has to be judged as an entrepreneurial action for which a return on investment (ROI) has to be ensured. The simulation tasks, results and in conclusion the ROIs for some exemplary optimisations in the field of manufacturing machines are presented and assessed as success stories for the use of simulations in practice.
