Paper Abstract

Ingersoll's Octahedral Hexapod--a milling machine for the future--is described. The specific target applications and the performance goals for an enhanced version of the machine are illustrated. The approach to achieving the goals by incorporating of advanced composites and active chatter and vibration control using smart materials is discussed. The machine characterization performed on an existing machine, the FE models developed and the plans to use the characterization and the validated models in designing an enhanced machine are described.
