New CNC system replacing cam

a new CNC system not only makes the operator of CNC tool lathe feel very full of open design, but also brings benefits to CNC tool milling machine. Jeff Endean, manager of Haas Automation Application, introduced to their users. Usually, a part processing program compiled by CAM software can produce a very efficient processing process, which will greatly reduce the production cycle of part processing regardless of the size of the processed parts. But it is usually carried out in the computer workshop far away from the processing workshop, and it often takes a long time to wait. According to the principle that the design drawings of general parts will determine all the geometric features of the parts (such as the mutation point or the position of the zero point often changes, etc.), and at the same time, absorbing the processing experience of a large number of users, Mr. Endean tracked and studied the processing process of a turning part with a complex geometric shape with a processing quantity of 120 pieces, and analyzed and evaluated the maximum production efficiency in the processing. It was found that if the processing quantity is less than 120 pieces, there is no need to use CAM software to assemble the part processing program, only a specially designed CNC system is used, and the operator assembles the processing program by himself, which eliminates the trouble of waiting for the cam department to assemble the processing program, that is to say, improves the production efficiency. The newly developed CNC system only needs to use the only knowledge and intelligence of the operator of the manual machine tool. It only needs to simply analyze the part graphics, find out the coordinate zero point, and then input the geometric characteristics of the part. For example, the fixed diameter length Tyvek 40L to be machined in machining also shows better physical strength, air permeability and cutting depth. The cutting speed and feed speed are generally set as default values, and can also be directly input. The tool path in processing is generated by the control system. Without knowing any G code, the operator can compile the processing program for processing relatively complex parts on the TL-1 tool lathe of Hass company. Of course, the new CNC system, for users who know G code, can also use G code assembler, and can also process the processing program assembled with G code. This method of directly inputting the size of parts and compiling the processing program of a part is also applicable to all kinds of lathes that are difficult to operate, which brings great convenience to the operator. For example, no special technology is needed for thread machining. The operator simply needs to input the nominal size of the thread that can easily cause problems in the part drawing. Chamfering is also an example. As long as the chamfer size is input, the CNC system can automatically generate the tool path of oblique cutting, instead of manually adjusting the tool holder for processing. For arc radius machining, it is no longer necessary to use a forming tool with a ground arc radius for machining. The operator simply needs to input the required size, and the control system processes and shapes it through the machining program of internal interpolation arc. Of course, this programming method of directly inputting parameters is not only for manual operators. It is also for users who are familiar with G code or use cam. It's just that the programming speed is faster and the workload is less. The significance of this opportunity is that it can make it easy to enter CNC. Although TL-1 has a handwheel, people familiar with the machine tool rarely use it. In addition to using the handwheel, a simpler method is to press the button to quickly enter the automatic processing state of the machine tool. The handwheel can only bring psychological comfort to the manual operator. Mr. Endean said that they could make it easy for an operator who first came into contact with CNC to complete the transition from a manual machine tool within a week
