The procurement of advanced manufacturing equipment is a key factor for European industry competitiveness. From the technical point of view, the objective of the project is to develop smart mechatronical devices to eliminate the static and dynamic errors that limit the performance of machine tools in metal cutting processes. This allows a substantial reduction of the machining time, due to a reduction in the number of operations to obtain a given precision, and/or increased machining speed. SMARTOOL project comprises the definition, design, development, prototype construction, test & industrial validation, continued by further exploitation of a set smart mechatronical devices f based on the innovative piezoelectric stiff motion technology, and their integration in the whole range of metal cutting machine tool systems.
