Introduction to the development trend of Automatic Cnc Lathe
Automatic Cnc Lathe were first born in the United States. In 1948, Parsons of the United States put forward the idea of a Automatic Cnc Lathe when developing a prototype machine tool for processing helicopter blade contour inspection. Later, it was commissioned by the United States Air Force to cooperate with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and trial-produced the world's first machine in 1952. Three-coordinate numerical control vertical milling machine, whose numerical control system adopts electronic tubes.
Beginning in 1960, Germany, Japan, China, etc. have successively developed, produced and used Automatic Cnc Lathe. In 1968, Beijing No. 1 Machine Tool Plant developed the first Automatic Cnc Lathe in China. In 1974, the microprocessor was directly used in Automatic Cnc Lathe, which further promoted the popularization and rapid development of Automatic Cnc Lathe.
With the rapid development of industries such as automobiles, national defense, aviation, and aerospace, as well as the application of new materials such as aluminum alloys, the requirements for high-speed machining of Automatic Cnc Lathe are getting higher and higher. The accuracy requirements of Automatic Cnc Lathe are now not limited to static geometric accuracy. The motion accuracy, thermal deformation, and vibration monitoring and compensation of machine tools are getting more and more attention. In the past 10 years, the machining accuracy of ordinary Automatic Cnc Lathe has increased from 10μm to 5μm, and the precision machining center has increased from 3~5μm to 1~1.5μm, and the ultra-precision machining accuracy has begun to enter the nanometer level (0.001μm).
