Abstract: This paper presents a comparative study between dynamic test results achieved with some
alternative materials used to manufacture machine tool structures. The part selected as a test
prototype represents a lathe bed in actual scale. Based on this pattern twelve test prototypes
were manufactured and dynamic tests performed by using the following materials and/or
composites: polymer mortar, polymer mortar with reinforcement cage, cast iron, cast steel,
ferrocement with reinforcement cage, and fiber-reinforced mortar. Dynamic tests were made
to obtain natural frequencies, damping rates, and mode shapes to the firsts deformed natural
vibration modes. The results are compared and discussed in the aim to reveal the advantages
and disadvantages in using these alternative materials instead of the traditional ones, cast iron
and cast steel, to manufacture machine tool structures.
