Figure 4 shows the deflection error when applying the load in a certain range and the minimization of error value is predicted by the ant colony optimization (ACO) compared to the GA and PSO.
Therefore, deflection error or penetration damage will not occur to the measurement specimen.
This trajectory is caused by tool deflection errors, cutting forces, tool-axis inclination, and machine head/spindle inaccuracy, as well as by alignment errors.
