Design principles In the precision technology there is a trend towards smaller, faster and more accurate construction. Systems contain electronic actuators, sensors, line units and software. The mechanical designer is expected to deliver an essential contribution to support the other disciplines in achieving the numerous system specifications. Expertise of construction principles is indispensable in this proces. A good mechanical design is the basis for an accurate and fast production proces. You will learn this during the course Design principles. • Have a conceptual understanding of working methods for the design of precision mechanisms • Know how to recognise problem areas, to identify alternatives and to make the appropriate choices • Get acquainted with dynamic behaviour and control engineering Programm Day 1: Basic principles regarding • Constructing for rigidity • Avoiding play • Controlling degrees of freedom Day 2: Theory concerning the preferred areas of interest and questions concerning • Manipulation and setting • Friction • Hysteresis • Fixating and micro-slip • Unrolling • Energy management • Exercises concerning the above fields of interest Day 3 • Exchanging experiences with the materials studied in the individual participants’ own working environment • Discussing cases User Designers of products and/or means of production for which precision is essential brie콇
