1. Suitable for processing periodic compound production parts
The market demand for some products is cyclical and seasonal. If a special production line is used, the gain is not worth the loss. The processing efficiency with ordinary equipment is too low, the quality is unstable, and the quantity is difficult to guarantee. After the first trial cut using the machining center, the program and related production information can be retained, and the next time the product is reproduced, the production can be started with a very short preparation time.
2. Suitable for processing high-efficiency and high-precision workpieces
Some parts have little demand. But it is a key component that requires high precision and short construction period. The traditional process requires multiple machine tools to coordinate work, which has a long cycle and low efficiency. In the long process flow, it is easy to produce waste products due to human influence, resulting in significant economic losses. , While the processing center is used for processing, the production is completely controlled by the program, which avoids the long process flow, reduces the hardware investment and human interference, and has the advantages of high production efficiency and stable quality.
3. Suitable for workpieces with suitable batch size
The flexibility of processing center production is not only reflected in the rapid response to special requirements, but also can quickly achieve mass production, possess and improve market competitiveness. The processing center is suitable for small and medium batch production, especially small batch production. When using the processing center, try to make the batch larger than the economic batch to achieve a good economic effect. With the continuous development of machining centers and auxiliary tools, economic batches are getting smaller and smaller. For some complex parts, 5-10 pieces can be produced, and machining centers can even be considered for single-piece production.
4. Suitable for processing parts with complex shapes
The application of four-axis linkage and five-axis linkage machining center and the mature development of CAD/CAM technology have greatly increased the complexity of machining parts. The use of DNC makes the processing content of the same program sufficient to meet various processing requirements, making the automatic processing of complex parts very easy.
5. Other features
The machining center is also suitable for processing multi-station and concentrated work pieces and difficult-to-measure work pieces. In addition, workpieces that are difficult to clamp or whose machining accuracy is ensured entirely by alignment and positioning are not suitable for production on a machining center.
