A forecasting compensatory control scheme for the reduction of form errors in machining is presented. The approach considerably departs from traditional methods in that it does not require a high precision machine tool for the achievement of high precision results. The basic underlying idea is to make use of advances in computer, sensor and actuator technologies in connection with on-line system identification methods, to implement a forecasting compensatory controller. The error motion component signals are sensed on-line by a microcomputer which develops a stochastic difference equation of error motion which in turn is used to forecast the future relative displacement between tool and workpiece forming the basis for a proper compensatory action. The feasibility of the method is demonstrated on examples of roundness and straightness control in grinding and milling respectively.
