As a result, the intelligent fixture will be able to reduce the deformation and its variability and will be able to reduce the setting time for avoiding chemical clamps.
The objectives of this work package can be summarized in the following points:
Advance in the Case Study 2.3Â Distortions in aeronautical structural parts
The main problems are related to the machining of the bottom side of the part. All mentioned issue are related to the decreasing of the part stiffness during machining:
The case study 2.2 covers one experiment within the INTEFIX project. This application is proposed by TYC (Strojirna Tyc, s.r.o.) and it deals with the reduction of deformation of the thin-walled aerospace part due to clamping forces. The clamping force should be set with respect to the workpiece stiffness that decrease during machining. The participants in this case study include the following companies: TYC, ROEMHELD and RCMT. The objectives of the task are development of an integrated intelligent fixture point and a thickness sensor.
