Paper Abstract

Guiding systems figure amongst the central components in the flux of a machine tool. Their characteristics have a direct impact on machining accuracy. Hydrostatic guiding systems are preferably used when specific requirements are to be met with regards to accuracy, stiffness and damping. However, an active intervention in the guiding system of such conventional systems, i.e. to absorb geometrical guiding rail errors, has so far not been possible. Compared to modular, conventional systems, adaptronic systems offer considerable cost savings potentials thanks to their increased functional degree of integration [1].
