The aim of the project is to retrofit a 3-axis CNC milling machine from the late 80’s
with a 5-axis head, a new controller, reducing the noise and the vibrations produced by
the machine to achieve a healthy work and educational environment. At the same time,
the purpose is to study the CNC milling machine within the marc of European Directives
and Standards to improve the safety features and ensure the safe and proper
work. The methodology used on the present thesis is the Concept Development Process
adapted from Ulrich & Eppinger (2008) . During the development process, the
collected data is investigated and analysed before the final result is presented. When a
concept design is ready, different companies specialised in each field are contacted.
By exposing them the problem and the solution developed in previous steps of the
present thesis, the concept is developed. Then the next step is to compare the different
offers and choose the one that fits better with the initial requirements. The result of
this project will be a particular solution applied to the second hand machining centre
that will be incorporated soon to the new A-huset workshop.
