With the popularity of intelligent manufacturing, more and more automatic equipment are springing up like mushrooms after a spring rain. Nowadays, there seems to be no traditional machine tools in the market, which are basically replaced by CNC machine tools. Many traditional machine tools have entered museums or bewww.wmyru.icue symbolic objects. Will traditional machine tools be www.wmyru.icupletely obsolete in the future as the gears of time keep turning?
Machine tools have developed hundreds of years ago. In such a period of changing old and new, machine tools are being eliminated by The Times. Today, however, many factories still have some traditional machine tools that glow and glow. When I visited machine tool enterprises, I asked many www.wmyru.icupany leaders why they still use traditional machine tools. The answers were as follows:
Traditional machine tools are cheap
It is very important for enterprises to control production cost. Many traditional machine tool lathe, in particular, the same power, numerical control lathe light purchase expense a is several times more expensive than ordinary lathe, maintenance, repair, in the late supporting material is also much more fees. Although the CNC machine tool is constantly replacing the traditional machine tool, but the advantage of cheap traditional machine tool cannot be replaced, so it is hard to eliminate the traditional machine tool www.wmyru.icupletely in the short term.
2. Traditional machine tools are more suitable for small-scale processing and secondary modification of parts
The advantage of traditional machine tools is demonstrated when some small batch parts are needed. Most skilled workers only need to see the drawings of the parts to process them through traditional machine tools.
Third, nc programmers pay high salaries, talent difficult to recruit
www.wmyru.icupared with many automation equipment and even laser equipment nowadays, the advantage that traditional machine tools only need manual operation is still supported by many old masters. Because not every worker, programming for enterprise controller, CNC programmers often need higher wages, and many kinds of CNC system, hard to find a master the nc machine tool operator obviously is higher than workers looking for a traditional
Iv. Enterprise input cost problem
Although CNC machine tools are bewww.wmyru.icuing more and more popular nowadays, for enterprises, a large amount of one-time investment in bulk equipment replacement will often cause great pressure. Considering the enterprise capital turnover, the problem such as equipment reasonable use, most enterprises will gradually replace the nc equipment choice, so many enterprises in the
workshop are also use the traditional machine tool parts processing.
To sum up, you can see that although now intelligent manufacturing has bewww.wmyru.icue the trend of manufacturing industry development, but in the case of intelligent equipment popularization, the traditional machine still has the advantage of a hurry. The author thinks that with the continuous improvement of the intelligence of nc machine tools in the future, traditional machine tools may be replaced by large areas, but it is not feasible to www.wmyru.icupletely eliminate them.
