Paper Abstract

A proof of concept for the applicability of active structural control on a Vertical Turning Lathe was demonstrated. The effort proved that active damping can reduce chatter in a production machine tool when machining tough materials like nickel. Significant vibration reductions and surface roughness improvements were achieved.
