Title: Accuracy Enhancement of High-Productivity Machine Tools Final Report CRADA No. TC-0161-91

Abstract

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Cincinnati Milacron Marketing Company worked together to improve the accuracy of a commercial machining tool by a factor of ten without degrading productivity and with minimal impact on the capital cost of the equipment. Most manufactured goods today are produced by using machine tools. Foreign imports now account for more than 55 percent of the machine tools sold in the U.S., according to the Economic Handbook of the Machine Tool Industry. This project has been funded to help U.S. tool manufacturers regain a competitive edge in the area of high-production, high-precision applications.
