2.77 | Precision Machine Design Course at MIT
What this course is about: Examines design, selection, and combination of machine elements to produce a robust precision machine or system. Introduces process, philosophy and physics based principles of design to improve and enable renewable power generation, energy efficiency, and manufacturing productivity. Topics include linkages, power transmission, screws and gears, actuators, structures, selection of materials, joints, bearings, error apportionment, and error budgeting. Considers each topic with respect to its physics of operation, mechanics (strength, deformation, thermal effects) and accuracy, repeatability, and resolution.
