The expanded contour machining
cycle for Siemens Sinumerik CNC controllers now facilitates 4-axis turning on lathes.
It takes about five minutes to perform a contour machining
operation that once took 20 minutes.
In case of contour machining
the work piece surface can be generated in two modes: by "gearing" between tool and work piece or by "sliding" along the work piece surface.
The tilt-axis range for the dual-axis indexers is -5[degrees] to +115[degrees] and provides two-axis linear, arc, and contour machining
and precise two-axis part positioning.
Complete in-house capabilities utilizing CAD/CAM design and programming for 3-D surface modeling and CNC 3-D contour machining
Capability: The prismatic and contour machining
manufacturing software package is one of five integrated and scalable CAD and computer-aided manufacturing software packages offered by the developer to complement that company's I-Deas 8 collaborative engineering software.
Offering all capabilities for prismatic and contour machining
of native or imported solid, surface, or curve geometry, this package also provides high-end integrated and associated machining in the same price category as stand-alone CAM offerings.
Under the premise of improving conductivity, maintain and improve the contour machining
performance, mechanical property and other properties of conductive silicone rubber;
The process, which previously took 80 hours, began with the workpiece fixtured to a rotary table on a horizontal machining center for 3 1/2-axis contour machining
RBI puts its 4"' axis rotary tables to work in both indexing and contour machining
operations, utilizing a number of methods that reduce setups, handlings and operations--significantly increasing productivity.
We had some ideas of our own on how to produce it, and they came back with a process and wrote a macro program for contour machining
this particular part.
