Where is the future development direction of CNC machine tools!


With the progress of technology and the upgrading of machine tool consumer market, machine tool intelligence is becoming the consensus of machine tool enterprises. Due to the development problem, China’s machine tool industry has been lingering in the low-end market of machine tool consumption for a long time. How to improve the manufacturing level of machine tools and become more effective in the high-end market has become an urgent problem for machine tool enterprises and even the machine tool industry. The emergence of the concept of intelligence has undoubtedly given China a chance to develop machine tools. From all kinds of intelligent products released by major machine tool manufacturers, intelligent machine tools generally have the following characteristics.

Intelligent calibration. Different from the time-consuming and laborious adjustment mode of traditional machine tools, intelligent machine tools rely on sensors, electromechanical integration and other technologies to detect the geometric error of processing and automatically determine the error compensation value. It can be found that the emergence of intelligent calibration not only greatly reduces the difficulty of operation, saves labor costs, but also improves the accuracy of processing, and makes up for the accuracy error in machine tool processing with accurate perception.

IntelliSense. The intelligent perception of machine tools can be divided into two parts: the perception of the environment and the perception of processing. The perception of environment includes the perception of temperature and force. For example, the machine tool equipped with intelligent perception function will flexibly respond to the heat generated during processing, reducing the impact of temperature on accuracy; It can react in case of unnecessary man-machine contact to avoid industrial accidents. The intelligent perception of machining includes the perception of workpiece state and tool state. Specifically, it can accurately identify and grasp the size, shape and position of the workpiece during processing; Real time monitoring of tool conditions, etc.

Intelligent prediction and maintenance. What will happen in machine tool processing? What should we do if it happens? Previously, these two problems were solved by experienced machine tool masters, but now they can be solved by machine tools with intelligent prediction and maintenance functions. It is understood that the intelligent prediction of machine tools can predict the processing status in advance by pre reading the program. Intelligent maintenance can be flexibly adjusted through the data fed back during processing, reported in time or optimized independently. In addition, intelligent machine tools also have the characteristics of networking, digitization, personalization, etc.
