Introduction of automatic tool change and automatic tool setting in precision CNC machining tool magazine

Automatic tool change and automatic tool setting in the tool magazine of the precision CNC machining center:
Precision CNC machining is to complete a variety of processes in automatic state numerical control equipment, mainly for some fixed mass production operations. But for the mold industry and small batch production units, don’t go to the machining center at all times. Many manufacturers buy machining centers for use as CNC milling.
Using the tool magazine is very simple in terms of the cost of the CNC system, but the spindle and tool magazine, air compressor, and various tool holders will increase the cost, and programming and adjusting the tool magazine will also take corresponding time. Therefore, try not to use machining centers for the production of less than one or two hundred workpieces of the same variety, because of high cost and low efficiency.
Precise CNC machining can use the automatic tool setting system, the tool is loaded up, one button, the machine tool automatically measures the tool, and the machine is directly processed. The error is within 0.001~.0003mm, which is not much slower than the automatic change time. If it is a machining center, a machine tool without automatic tool setting device is compared with a machine tool without a tool magazine but with an automatic tool setting device. In practice, the efficiency of the latter is much higher than the former.
For domestic manufacturing, especially mold manufacturing companies, they generally produce single-piece production and have sufficient labor resources. Therefore, for the processing of small batches of industrial parts, the value of capital should be fully considered, and processing center equipment should not be used frequently. . What’s more, there are basically many problems in the tool magazines of domestic manufacturers. CNC machining center.
