The demand for machine tools with accuracy on a nanometer scale has been increasing in a wide range of industries. Machine tools have been called “mother machines” in that they produce various other devices. In order to meet the requirements of industry, numerous research activities have been conducted to develop various technologies related to machine tools. However, there are only few established technologies in spite of the machine tool industry’s long history. A new approach to systematizing machine tool engineering is playing an increasingly important role in the development of innovative machine tools. This paper presents a conceptual framework for systematizing machine tool engineering. Future evolutionary trends in machine tool engineering are also described.
