Several automation tools in term\r\nof hardware and software are necessary for successfully remote\r\noperation of a machine. This paper presents a prototype of workpiece\r\nholding attachment for remote operation of milling process by self\r\nconfiguration the workpiece setup. The prototype is designed with\r\nmechanism to reorient the work surface into machining spindle\r\ndirection with high positioning accuracy. Variety of parts geometry\r\nis hold by attachment to perform single setup machining. Pin type\r\nwith array pattern additionally clamps the workpiece surface from\r\ntwo opposite directions for increasing the machining rigidity.\r\nOptimum pins configuration for conforming the workpiece geometry\r\nwith minimum deformation is determined through hybrid algorithms,\r\nGenetic Algorithms (GA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO).\r\nPrototype with intelligent optimization technique enables to hold\r\nseveral variety of workpiece geometry which is suitable for\r\nmachining low of repetitive production in remote operation.","references":"[1] H.
