Miniaturization for manufacturing system has been studied widely since the development of the smallest lathe in the world. Several prototypes are implemented, which are used to produce small parts with high precision. Accuracy and stiffness are the most important factors for design in the development of miniaturized systems. This study presents a method to evaluate static and dynamic characteristics of a miniaturized machine tool (mMT) according to its configuration before building the actual system. The proposed error estimation technique shows that volumetric error can be estimated indirectly at the design stage using error components of one axis and HTM (Homogeneous Transform Matrix), unlike the error modeling technique through direct measurement. Thus, accuracy of the system based on its configuration is analyzed at the design stage itself. The proposed analysis procedure is shown for the case of a 3 axis machine tool. In addition, dynamic characteristics of spindle unit affecting the spindle error are studied.
