Automation is not just about robots. The workshop is also paying more attention to equipment, such as tool presetters, on-board part and tool detection, and process gauges to eliminate manual tasks (and the risk of errors) during processing.
High-volume machines are becoming more and more flexible. Although the number of parts in the production workshop is still very high, the flexibility to choose different jobs is becoming more and more important.
The focus is shifting from hardware to software. Basic physics means that the machine tool has effectively reached its peak in terms of material removal, spindle rotation, and axis movement.
More processes will be introduced internally. In some respects, “processing workshop” is no longer a valid description of a manufacturer with processing capabilities. Modern production manufacturers want to be a one-stop shop for their customers. This allows them to focus on processes and equipment, enabling them to process, finish, assemble, pack and even manage inventory for customers.
Cutting part requirements
1. The parts should be inspected and accepted in accordance with the processing procedures, and can only be transferred to the next procedure after the previous procedure is qualified.
2. The processed parts are not allowed to have burrs.
3. The finished parts shall not be placed directly on the ground after placement, and necessary support and protection measures shall be taken. Defects that affect performance, life or appearance, such as rust, bumps, and scratches, are not allowed on the processed surface.
4. The surface after rolling should not fall off after rolling.
5. There should be no oxide scale on the surface of heat-treated parts in the final process. Finished mating surfaces and tooth surfaces should not be annealed
6. The surface of the thread after processing is not allowed to have defects such as black skin, bumps, random buttons and burrs.
