ARTICLE INFO ABSTRACT Article history: The need for high-strength, multi-axis, and multi-functional machine tools has recently increased because of part complexity and workpiece strength. However, most of the machine tool manufacturers rely on experience for a detailed design because of the shortcomings in the existing design technology. This study uses a topology optimization method to more effectively design a large multi-functional machine tool considering static stiffness. The ram, saddle,

Based on this analysis, the optimized internal rib structure for those parts is designed for desirable rigidity and weight. This structure could possibly provide the required design technology for machine tool manufacturers.
