A machine tool structure has great influence on the precision of machine tool’s operations. The present work involves the optimization of CNC Lathe saddle for minimum overall compliance and weight. The CNC Lathe sub-assembly is modeled, static analyzed using OptiStruct and optimized the saddle for more stiffened and light weight structure.
