The main factors to consider when preparing the tool path for inclined bed CNC lathes

The inclined bed CNC lathe is suitable for processing small and medium-sized shafts and disk parts. It can turn various threads, arcs, cones and rotary surfaces. It is used in plumbing equipment, automobile and motorcycle parts, optical accessories, medical devices, photographic equipment, Communication equipment, bearings, hardware and sanitary ware, lighting and other industries.

The process content of CNC machining is more complicated than that of ordinary machine tools. Since inclined bed CNC lathes are more expensive than ordinary machine tools, it is not economically worthwhile to process only simple processes. Therefore, CNC lathes generally organize more complex processes, and even processes that are difficult to process on ordinary machine tools.

The preparation of swiss screw machine parts procedures is more complicated than the preparation of general machine tool process procedures. This is because issues that do not need to be considered in the processing technology of general machine tools, such as the organization of the work steps within the process, the determination of tool setting points, tool changing points, and tool paths, cannot be ignored when compiling the CNC lathe processing technology.

The main factors to consider when preparing the tool path for inclined bed CNC lathes are the following five points:

  • 1. For point processing CNC lathes, consideration should be given to shortening the tool path as much as possible to reduce idle time and improve processing efficiency.
  • 2. In order to ensure the roughness requirements of the workpiece outline surface after processing, the final outline should be organized for continuous processing in the last pass.
  • 3. The path of the tool’s advance and retreat must be carefully considered, and try to avoid stopping the tool at a general location or cutting in and out of the custom ptfe parts vertically.
  • 4. When milling a closed concave surface, the cut-in or cut-out of the tool is not allowed to extend, and can be selected at the junction of the two sides.
  • 5. For the processing of rotating parts, it is crucial to reasonably formulate rough machining routes.
