The automation that turning machines helped a workshop improve the manufacturing efficiency of the spare parts effectively. Graph the 1 double axis lathe that uses with form a complete set of robot of dragon door type, in the automation production course of the workshop, strode a new chance to extricateoneself from an awkward position to pursue 2 automation production can let job shops be produced with taller efficiency, the bearing that graphic representation applies for the domain such as car, spaceflight and the sources of energy is encircled now, why a lot of job shops use automation to produce in the consideration? Ground is very much. To certain job shops, come from increasing ceaselessly at the pressure of low cost area, force them to must reduce direct service cost. To another some of workshop, because they lack skilled worker, because this encourages their use robot,assemble and unassemble the work that processes on the machine tool. Did not concern directly between the account that perhaps uses automation production and service cost. The high quality that the occurrence of problem of a quality can make people peculiar to robot technology repeats precision to cause high attention. No matter be to build up from nothing, still transfer from traditional production, a lot of job shops can gain a lot of benefit from inside automation production. However, the idea that how realizes automation production exactly still is not very clear. The leaders of a lot of workshops aux would rather the kind that takes safe, progress step by step carries out automation production, they believe firmly, optimal method is to purchase to be able to agree with the system that processes a series of spare partses, and can machine in every time these spare partses are machined faultlessly as far as possible inside unit. Before devoted production, this kind of method can let job shops test the idea that automation produces, of farther perfect concerned spare parts deposit, refer the question that waits for a respect with process designing.

Machine Products company chose a shortcut, took the kind that produces with respect to automation of comprehensive implementation spare parts at the beginning. This job shops is led by Mr Greg Scheurich, the business of the company is to be the clients of global industry group to produce bearing inner ring and outer lane. The double axis lathe that the workshop installed a few to use a robot to expect up and down recently (graph 1) , from company of American Fuji machine tool (be located in Yilinuosi the Vernon Hills area of the city) introduce, help C.

C company achieved the goal that seed profit produces, make its OK compete with the stage with foreign manufacturer. In the meantime, the company also finished another round of automation of its job shops to transform the task. In business implementation automation goes, the main responsibility of Mr Scheurich is the sale of responsible cutting tool, as a result of deal with between the job shops at place, a lot of enterprises ask him to recommend him to think qualified the workshop that machines all sorts of spare partses with ability. As intermediate manufacturer, mr Scheurich introduces its client and distributors contact. One day, a of this area main bearing supplier suggests Mr Scheurich purchases a few machine tools, the bearing circle that begins to manage him himself processes business. Hold water from the company begin, scheurich is born with to feel apparently first, he must find the strategy that an automation machines, he says: "Because this is the 2nd my business, we do not want to abandon our major servicing really, because this must be used enough good automation technology. " since since was being founded 1988, company after many extend. The first job shops has those who be not worth 500m2 to cover an area of an area only, the 2nd building achieved close 1000m2. And the 3rd factory building that builds now had achieved 5000m2. 1988~2000 year, the business development of the company is very rapid, but also experienced a lot of hard and tortuous path. 2000, the company used new strategy to aid its to continue to grow, make its have better foresight. Mr Scheurich admits, former, he does not plan to deal with come from the certain challenge at automation respect, these wrong ideas basically come from at the following the consideration of 3 respects. The price that automation pays is too high C.

Company from purchase unit of the first robot to rise, so far its business began time of a few years only. Review according to Mr Scheurich, a distributors makes a telephone call at that time, say to cross some of moment to will offer lathe of double axis of type of contraposition of main shaft of a horizontal to him, deserve to have on this machine tool can assemble and unassemble the device of robot of dragon door type of workpiece. Purchase lathe of numerical control of an odd axis to want 80000 dollars about at that time, because this wants to pay 320000 dollars to buy automation lathe to have it seems that,nod ability not equal to one's ambition, it is for double axis only, need to pay fourfold price however! When just when a potential client comes,calling in, that distributors also is fitly in the workshop, then Mr Scheurich lets the spare parts amount that this distributors requires according to client place make a quoted price. The price is competitive, it is via the charge of computer bed inside 5 years but paid, then final Mr Scheurich decides to buy this machine tool. Mr Scheurich admits, he does not decide a workshop whether make the machine tool moves enough the cost that long time requires with paying this machine tool place, because have a lot of things,circumstances may appear accident. "Show besides the place on the spreadsheet beyond, my heart tells me opposite opinion however. " actually, the feasibility condition that appears before Mr Scheurich is, the charge of the machine tool has not arrived 5 years very fast paid. Invest charge consideration from initial stage, although automation machine tool wants to compare non-automati change a machine tool to need to pay higher price, but from long-term consideration, it is raising the advantage of productivity and efficiency respect is clearly, it can bring higher profit and bigger yield for the company. Graph Mr 3 Gary Hoofnagle (left) believe firmly with Mr Greg Scheurich, automation production helped the mankind, at the same time the mankind also drove automation to produce automation to be able to cause worker unemployment to some of workshop converts automation production will reduce a spare parts produce the direct service charge in cost. Use a robot to be able to reduce direct service cost really, but C.

The company converts the main purpose that automation produces is to improve productivity, mr Scheurich says: "Worker unemployment was not caused after in our machine tool implementation robot automation is produced. Have period of time, the personnel amount of our workshop still exceeded the number when sum is used even, in the meantime, the client's demand rises very much more quickly. " production of workshop implementation automation means his to operate personnel to be able to more times detect spare parts. The vice-president of job shops holds manufacturing manager Mr Gary Hoofnagle concurrently to believe firmly, automation production can make the workshop develops ceaselessly expand, but if do not have professional, the development of the workshop also is impossible. Automation production helped the mankind, the mankind also drove automation production. He believes firmly, the mankind always should compare a machine clever much, they can get used to different ambient conditions, but the machine should compare the mankind to be able to be competent more reduplicative handles the task. He says, when both when be being combined together appropriately, its succeed namely as a result and effective automation is produced (graph 3) . Automation treatment agrees with only large quantities of quantities produce C.

Because its and a stable supplier signed a few only contracts,the account that the company purchases machine tool of the first automation is, annual they machine tot 250000 bearing circle. However, old automation production experience makes this company from much breed, small lot ordered goods rich and generous gain is scored in production, although annual amount has 5000 only. Wherefrom moment begins to arrive all the time now, the circumstance does not have any change, it is correct that the fact proves to use new machine tool, less to batch of course some series part, mr Scheurich or the big batch spare parts that are willing to accept order of onefold spare parts are machined. Improve in what place of automation production field makes can allow him to accept 3 years of the contract order goods quantity, batch is in 5000~100000 between, from which he still can get higher profit. Although some job shops still are trying to withhold original machine tool, because need to acquittance debt, but C.

The company used different kind however. From at the beginning, mr Scheurich uses time of 5 years only with respect to the machine tool that plans them. Today, he can make this first phase is restricted be lengthened or 8 years, because be in,the development of mechanical function and electric design respect prolonged the service life of this kind of machine tool. The company uses new machine tool regularly to replace old model machine tool to have production, produce the surplus value of the machine tool with utmost ground, maintain the treatment precision of the machine tool. This offerred an opportunity for the craft examine and verify of daily routine, and make concerned personnel can master newest skill. In this one workshop, developing a person with ability is to make automation production more flexible with the key that increases profit. The advantage of automation this workshop from after using automation to produce at the beginning, an advantage that its reflect gets comprehensive promotion with respect to the productivity that is a workshop. Predict according to Mr Hoofnagle, a few Chan Zhoufei that manage by an operator are automatic lathe, the utilization rate of its main shaft inspects operator and decide, it is 50%~65% commonly. On the other hand, use two automatic machine tools (4 main shaft work) production plans kind, the utilization rate of its main shaft can amount to 80%~90% . Graph 4 this one simple bend inclined slideway can convey the spare parts to undertake examining to operator. Slideway of this bend inclined can make the spare parts is arranged by order, if need, still can make necessary adjustment be below this kind of circumstance, the member that the machine tool controls an operation works, is not opposite situation. The robot takes out wool blank or bearing group from inside workpiece library, in the chuck that installs its lathe. After be being finished in treatment, the robot gets off finished product from chuck, on the small-sized conveyer belt that puts machine tool other one end next (graph 4) . The figuration product line of the spare parts can make finished product queues up by order. When the change of farther perfect craft, this is very useful, can regard the job of operator as sort, each such spare partses won't be missed examine, next by branch of deliver heat treatment. Operator always is the workbench with full load feels with the discharge stage of absolutely empty proud. Mr Hoofnagle says: "This is the working case that sees on the lathe that he expects on robot of dragon door type. " because get the materials ready,solve for the help library short and the issue that suspends working plan, a thing that Mr Scheurich needs to do should assure to make work namely of the spot get the materials ready the library can offer enough get the materials readying. Mr Scheurich will get the materials ready regard as an enterprise will treat. When the opportunity comes, his meeting average these getting the materials ready, when having need, he sells oneself or other clients. Should lack data and be forced stop production when, this kind of practice can help its product line continue to move. Besides the productivity that improves working center, use the automation production with excellent design to still be helpful for improving productivity. When automation manufacturing technology becomes more natural and when be worth to depend on, machine tool after come off work nobody change operation time to be able to be lengthened further. Other machine tool increases in processing unit, can make become this apportion to arrive on more spare partses with secondhand service directly, make produce cost to drop stage by stage thereby. In best job shops, see weekly job 40h impossibly even the circumstance of 80h. The possibility that they see is working 168h(not be to point to operator, point to the working hours) of the machine tool however. Want to make the machine tool achieves the treatment performance of this one level, the first pace should believe a machine tool to be able to finish working job well and truly certainly namely. Automation production still has the advantage that a your person is interested in: Raise quality magnanimity to learn a level. Because the machine tool repeats similar action completely every time, this one process can cause exterior defect very quickly. If the design of the machine tool does not have some kind of special function, so any little works that the machine tool cannot complete operator to undesigned hope help satisfies these requirements and want to do, if must consider the way that cuts bits to rupture every time,go in. Going up artificially in the machine treatment unit of makings, want to solve cut bits to form " bird's nest " the question is not quite difficult. This is regarded to be Xiang Yongmo's silent one job, anyhow, when operator is installing workpiece, clear cutting tool. C.

The company adopted innovation, the cooling fluid that the Fuji TNW-3500R that installs recently machine tool will pass main shaft and the air current union through process designing are used together, achieve thereby clean spare parts and the purpose that rinse chuck. They also are used retroflexion be versed in a process that makes the spare parts operates another operation from is medium retroflexion a few times. Such, in retroflexion can make in the process of bequeath cut bits to fall from workpiece. The spare parts can be satisfied to change on main shaft the machine tool of the requirement does not have this kind of function commonly. Where is the bottom line that labour force is in short supply? Besides these advantage, the other advantage that automation produces also is shown gradually. To certain company, the problem that appears at present basically is labor shortage, everyday, the breach between the operator measure that can provide on requires operator amount and market is expanding ceaselessly. Like Tooling U company this kind of orgnaization can be offerred on the net groom resource, the help makes up for this breach. Still a lot of machine tool manufacturer invested proper time and capital, help user grooms the staff member that has optimal operation technology. If one day, when talent of the neither one on a public position can be recruited, will that appear what circumstance? The basis works a recent statistic, arrive from now during 2015, will have 40 million about " casual " exit the market, and can enter this market replace personnel to have 11 million only. Be in short supply badly through using automation production to solve labour force problem, in order to satisfy prospective need. Do not want occurrence accident Mr Scheurich and Mr Hoofnagle to remind, before the decision uses automation to produce, should consider and note manual work problem. Below certain circumstance, manual work is very fluky, need to update anyhow, do not feel manual to exercise suits automation to produce very much. If need, before the decision takes further step, should evaluate automation to manufacture technology. Investigation mixes all improvement that what place of rotate speed field obtains in mechanical, clamping apparatus and cutting tool feed achievement, the success that produces for automation creates best opportunity. Use a machine tool to control all advanced characteristics of the system, the configuration of the management that is like cutting tool life, redundant cutting tool and process detect mediumly. Mr Hoofnagle says: "In C.
