Resumen

PADAYACHEE, J.; BRIGHT, G  y  MASEKAMELA, I.. Modular reconfigurable machine tools: Design, control and evaluation. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.2, pp.127-143. ISSN 2224-7890.

The reconfigurable manufacturing system (RMS) paradigm encapsulates methodologies that enable manufacturing systems to cope effectively with market and product changes. This research presents the design and evaluation of modular reconfigurable machine (MRM) tools as a novel machining solution within the scope of RMS. Mechanical and control designs are presented, outlining the development of this novel machining system. The property of hardware modularity displayed by MRMs enables an adjustment of system functionality and the synergistic redistribution of system resources between production streams, thus facilitating inter-process capacity scaling. Scalable production capacity and adjustable system functionality are the key objectives of reconfigurable manufacturing.

Palabras clave : Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems; Modular Reconfigurable Machines; Open Architecture Control; Modular Machine Control.
