Yoshiaki Kakino (Kakino Research Institute)

This paper deals with most up-to-date machine tools in Japan which are called high precision machining centers, and are located between the conventional machining centers and ultra-precision machine tools in accuracy. The high precision parts machined by this type of machine, the mechanical structure of the machine, motion accuracy of the machine are discussed.
