Machines are complex creatures. It is because of several factors that are into play while making these machines. But, the success of every device can be credited to only one major factor. This factor is the efficient beginning of the machined part. Our team of professionals at RS India brainstorms the ideas first. Then the team works on the accurate translation of that idea suiting the needs of the client. The final step, however, is using all the needful resources up to their full potential to achieve the desired outcome.
For the layout of the machine, a detailed 3D figure is being designed. We generally use the universally compatible tools of Part Print and Solid Model for this. These prints and 3-D models are made in an extremely meticulous manner.
This is because these prints and models by the precision machinery designers are then shown to our engineers for further processes. The engineers then analyze the edition and give their inputs. They see if any modifications should be made to enhance the functioning of the machinery part. All the unique features in the Precision Machinery are added at this point.
We notice that while manufacturing precision machinery parts, there are different milling machines and axis that are used. A mill is like a tool that is used for rotating a milling cutter to produce surfaces on a work-piece. An axis, however, as the name suggests, is a fixed-line of reference. It is used to measure coordinates for accurately designing the machinery. Generally, while manufacturing the machinery part, there are 3,4 or 5 axis machines used.
A 3 axis machine is used when the raw materials have to be kept stationary. This helps the milling cutter to move along the axis and cut the machinery part. The 4 or 5 axis machines are used when we have to rotate the section on different points. Also, all this while not letting the machinist touch that precision machinery part.
This is helpful in the more complex design of machines where more accuracy is required. More features can be put efficiently with high tolerance levels. The precision machinery is controlled using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) so that uniformity and quality can be maintained. It becomes feasible to enter the exact dimensions of the CNC so that the outcome is desirable.
