modular machine tool
May 16, 2018

The transfer and unit machine is based on common parts.

Special parts and fixtures designed for the specific shape and process of the workpiece,

A semi-automatic or automatic machine tool.

 

Processing way

Combined machine tools are generally used for machining of box or special shaped parts with multi-axis, multi-tool, multi-process, multi-face or multi-station machining.

 

 

The history of

Since the 1970s, the machining accuracy of the combined machine tool has been improved with the development of indexable cutting tool, milling cutter, boring size automatic detection and automatic tool compensation technology.The flatness of the milling plane can reach 0.05mm /1000 mm, and the surface roughness can be as low as 2.5~0.63 microns.The precision of boring hole can reach the level of IT7~6, and the hole spacing accuracy can reach 0.03~0.02 micron.

The earliest combined machine tools were made in the United States in 1911 to process automobile parts.At the beginning, each machine tool factory has its own common component standard.In order to improve the general components of different factory interchangeability, making it easy for users to use and maintenance, in 1953, ford motor company and general motors and the United States machine tool manufacturing factory consultation, determine the general modular machine tool parts standardization principle, namely the relationship between components size strictly, but did not make provisions for parts structure.

In China, combined machine tool development has been developed for 28 years, and its scientific research and production have a considerable foundation, and the application has been applied to many industries.It is one of the necessary equipment for the current mechanical manufacturing industry to realize product renewal, carry out technical renovation and improve production efficiency and high speed development.

From the end of 2002 the 21st, according to the Japan international machine tool fair from more than 10 countries and regions of the world in more than 500 machine tool manufacturer and groups in the display of the most advanced machine tool equipment, ultra-high speed and high precision processing technology and equipment and compound, multi-function, multi-axis control equipment, etc.The processing center on display at this expo has a spindle speed of 10000~20000r/min, and the maximum feeding speed can reach 20~60m/min.The prospect of compound, multi-function and multi-axis control equipment is also favored.While the degree of component integration is increasing and the quantity is decreasing, the shape of processing is increasingly complex.

The future development of the combined machine tool will be used to simplify the structure and shorten the production beat by using the speed regulating motor and ball screw.Adopt digital control system and main shaft box and fixture automatic replacement system to improve the process tunability;And the inclusion of flexible manufacturing systems.

 

Parts classification

The universal parts can be divided into five categories: power parts, supporting parts, conveying parts, control parts and auxiliary parts.The power unit is the component that provides the main movement and feed motion for the combined machine tool.Main power box, cutting head and power slide.

Multi-axis combination drilling machine.

Multi-axis combination drilling machine.

The supporting part is used to install the power sliding table, the cutting head or fixture of the feeding mechanism, the side base, the middle pedestal, the bracket, the adjustable bracket, the column and the pedestal base.

The conveying parts are the parts used for conveying the workpiece or spindle box to the processing station, and the main parts are the rotary table of dividing degree, the rotary table of circular indexing, the dividing drum wheel and reciprocating moving table.

The control unit is the part that controls the automatic working cycle of the machine tool, including the hydraulic station, the electric cabinet and the control console.Auxiliary parts have lubricating device, cooling device and chip removal device.

 

 

How to apply

The combined machine tool is a semi-automatic or automatic machine tool based on the common parts and the special parts and fixtures designed according to the specific shape and processing technology of the workpiece.It generally adopts multi-axis, multi-tool, multi-process, multi-surface or multi-station processing, and the production efficiency is several times to several times higher than the universal machine tool.Due to the standardization and serialization of common parts, flexible configuration can be made according to the requirements, which can shorten the design and manufacturing cycle.Therefore, combined machine tools have the advantages of low cost and high efficiency, which are widely used in large quantities and mass production, and can be used to form automatic production lines.

The machine tool is generally used to process the parts of the box or special shape.When the workpieces are generally not rotate, by the rotation of the cutting tool movement and relative feed movement, cutting tool and the workpiece to achieve drilling, reaming, counter boring, reaming, boring, plane, internal and external thread cutting and milling machining cylindrical and end face, etc.Some modular machine tool by turning head clamping workpiece rotation, by cutting tool feed movement, also can achieve some revolving body parts (such as flywheel, vehicle driving axle half shaft, etc.) of the cylindrical and face processing.

The special machine tool developed with the rise of automobile industry.In the special machine tool, some parts are gradually developed into universal parts because of repeated use, resulting in the combination of machine tools.

In order to make the combination machine tools can be applied in the medium and small batch production, often need to apply group technology, the structure and process of similar part focused on a modular machine tool processing, in order to improve the utilization rate of machine tools.There are two common types of machine tools, which can be used in combination of spindle box and turret.
