Abstract

In this study, a twin-axis gantry has been structured to examine hydraulic driven positioning skills of the curvilinear motions based on ISO 230-4 standard entitled 'Circular tests for numerically controlled machine tools'. The system is controlled by a path and position control module of a PLC device. As a result of the experiments conducted based on the full factorial design, the effects of piston diameter, feed rate, radius and their two-way interactions on the circularity error are determined through analysis of variance. Accordingly, minimum circularity error is obtained with the piston diameter of 63 mm, inertia load of 12.5 kg, radius of 5 mm and feed rate of 50 mm/min as 0.345 mm. Circularity error increases with the increase of inertia load, radius and feed rate, and declines with the increase of piston diameter. Lastly, piston diameter has the greatest effect on the circularity error change and followed by radius, feed rate, piston diameter-radius, radius-feed rate, piston diameter-feed-rate, inertia load, piston diameter-inertia load, and inertia load-radius factors and interactions.
