New energy saving methods are required in the industrial sector to address global climate change and resource depletion. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) has attracted considerable attention as a structural material that can improve energy efficiency by weight reduction. The application of CFRP to machine tools has already been realized; however, the dynamic characteristics of the position control system for CFRP machine tools have not been investigated. In this study, the mechanical properties affecting the positioning performance were experimentally evaluated using a rotary stage that could be switched to different structural materials. This study can be useful as a guideline for position control systems and the mechanical design of a CFRP stage and contribute toward achieving higher energy efficiency.
