Machine tools involve various mechanical interfaces in different forms and styles which affect the performance significantly in terms of rigidity, thermal stability, precision, and accuracy. This paper presents a review of the related literature in machine tool interfaces by focusing on structural components. The review is presented for the main concepts, recent challenges, and future trends of machine tool interfaces regarding mechanical characteristics, thermal aspects, geometric accuracy and precision, and wear and failure. An overview of recent research and advancements in mechanical interfaces is also given. Advanced methods on modeling and digitalization of mechanical interfaces' static, dynamic, thermal, and geometrical behavior are presented with examples. Furthermore, common wear and failure mechanisms and available solutions as well as health monitoring techniques are covered.
