External disturbances, as well as internal ones, cause a relative motion between the cutter and workpiece and thereby influence detrimentally the surface finish and machining accuracy. By properly mounting the machine tools upon soft isolators thus reducing the system’s natural frequencies, the amplitude of relative displacement between the cutter and workpiece can be decreased, thereby improving surface finish and accuracy.
