This book offers the latest information on the newest, state of the art CNC machine tool machine spindle systems, which incorporates several disciplines including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science and computer software. It describes how a computer simulation model and prediction technique can predict the future behavior of a motorized spindle and suggests a way to improve accuracy.
Machine tools are used to create complex and intricate designs that require precise positioning of parts. However, they often require manual or mechanical assistance to position the parts. Mechanical aids include clamps, nuts, bolts and rollers, to name a few. These mechanical aids can be mechanical in nature or may require a mechanical part such as a nut, bolt or clamp for the design.
It is often necessary to build complex computer models in order to predict the effects of a design to the desired result. This is because a good design can produce a desired result when placed in the correct position but a bad design can cause undesirable results when positioned in the wrong position. If a design produces an acceptable outcome but is placed incorrectly it can produce a failure. The same is true for a design that does not have desirable results, but is placed correctly but is not the design’s final position in the desired location. A computer simulation model is used to calculate the potential results of different design positions before construction begins.
CNC machine tools make it possible to use simple, hand-eye coordination methods to calculate the forces required to move parts in the desired manner. This reduces the amount of effort required to calculate the effects of a design on the desired position of parts. CNC motorized spindles can be used with either mechanical or electrical drives.
This new method of calculating the effects of a design on the final position of a part, eliminates the need to use mechanical parts in the design process. Instead of manually placing mechanical parts into the design or requiring mechanical assistance, it requires the user to compute the force required to move the design around the table. This eliminates mechanical parts and eliminates mechanical errors. This also provides for reduced physical labor costs and less time spent in the fabrication process.
Motorized spindles can increase productivity in an assembly line setting where the production time is greatly reduced. They can be used in any number of application settings including in the printing industry, electronics, aerospace, machinery and automobile assembly lines, and much more.
