Mass Customized Design And Manufacturing System Of Advanced Hydraulic Parts
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes a production system for hydraulic parts. The system allows the rapid development and fabrication of hydraulic parts for custom-made pumps through the integration of innovative means and the positive use of three-dimensional digital design information. This unique production system is called “mass-customized production system of hydraulic parts.” The key technologies of this system are: • Inverse solution design procedure, • Rapid prototyping of hydraulic models for performance tests, • Investment precision casting method utilizing rapid prototyping pattern, • Flexible manufacturing system, and • Concurrent production control system.
