The most fundamental factor for tool manufacturers and grinding plants to improve work efficiency and reduce costs is that machine tool manufacturers continue to promote new products. In order to improve the utilization rate of machine tools and reduce the labor cost, automation has been paid more and more attention. At the same time, by developing software, the function of machine tool operation can be broadened, and the production schedule can be arranged economically under the condition of small production batch and short delivery cycle. In addition, increase the power of the machine tool, so that it can meet the diversified needs and broaden the specification range of grinding tools.
In the future, the development of CNC tool grinder is mainly reflected in three aspects:
(1) Automation: when a tool manufacturer produces new tools, it has high efficiency because of large quantities. However, there is no such condition in the tool grinding plant, only through automation to solve the efficiency problem. The tool dresser does not require the machine to be operated by nobody, but hopes that an operator can take care of multiple machines to control the cost.
(2) High precision: many manufacturers make reducing the operation time as the primary goal, but others put the quality of parts in the most important position (such as high precision cutter and medical parts manufacturers). With the improvement of grinder production technology, the newly developed machine tool can guarantee very strict tolerance and extraordinary finish.
(3) Development of application software: now the factory hopes that the higher the degree of automation of grinding, the better. No matter the production batch size, the key to the problem is to realize flexibility. The increasing importance of software is due to the decrease in the number of high-level workers capable of manually grinding complex tools. In addition, hand-made tools are difficult to meet the requirements of modern machine tools for cutting speed and accuracy. Compared with CNC grinding, manual grinding can reduce the quality and consistency of cutting edge. Because when grinding by hand, the tool must be on the supporting plate, and the grinding direction of the grinding wheel points to the cutting edge, which will produce the edge burr. CNC grinding, on the other hand, does not use a support plate when it is working. If the grinding direction deviates from the cutting edge, there will be no edge burr.
