The multi-axis tapping machine is a machine tool that utilizes multiple axes to simultaneously tap 2-18 holes.
It is one of the best pieces of equipment to improve work efficiency and save production costs.
Please strictly observe the operating procedures and daily maintenance system to ensure the proper functioning of the numerical control device. It is essential to prevent dust and metal powder from entering the device, as they may cause a drop in the insulation resistance of the components, leading to malfunctions or even damage.
Furthermore, it is crucial to maintain the standby circuit board and avoid using the CNC system for extended periods. Instead, it should be powered off when not in use.
To prevent any data loss, it is recommended to regularly replace the memory battery. Additionally, it is essential to clean the cooling and ventilation system of the CNC cabinet to ensure proper heat dissipation.
Finally, it is necessary to monitor the grid voltage of the CNC system often to ensure that it is operating within safe parameters.
Precautions for pre-use inspection
(1) Inspection of Multi-axis Tapping Machine before Use
- Check if the chuck is in good condition.
- Ensure that the work surface is parallel.
- Turn on the main power switch.
(2) Steps to Start Multi-Axis Tapping Machine
- Start the Main Motor
- Press the motor running button to make the motor run forward or reverse.
- Select Operation Method
- Choose the positive or negative operation method according to the requirements.
- Positive Operation
- Put the motor running button in the positive running position to move the bit with the motor.
- Use the handle wheel to feed the bit down.
- Release the handle wheel to let it bounce back automatically.
- Reverse Operation
- Put the motor running button in the reverse running position to rotate the handle wheel and operate the machine.
(3) Important Notes for Using Multi-Axis Tapping Machine:
- The drill fixture cannot be tapped and must be fastened with a wrench or a drill bit.
- Avoid drilling the platform or fixture while drilling.
- Set a center point for the position where the workpiece will be drilled.
- When drilling holes larger than 10MM, divide them into smaller holes of 2-3 times.
- Adjust the rotation speed of the drilling machine according to the size of the drill bit. The higher the speed of the pulley, the slower the rotation speed.
- If the drilled workpiece is too small, fix it with a clamp. Do not use your hand to stabilize the workpiece.
- Do not wear gloves while working.
(4) Shutdown Steps for Multi-Axis Tapping Machine:
- At the end of the workday or when stopping work, place the drilling machine in a safe stop.
- Stop the operation by setting the motor operation selector to the OFF position.
- Turn off the power by pulling down the main power switch.
(5) Regular Draining of Air Compressor:
- The air compressor should be drained frequently.
- If the air compressor is not drained in time, the moisture will carry into the air motor, causing the bearings to become inflexible.
(6) Lubrication of Double Joint Oil Cup:
- The pneumatic motor of the pneumatic tapping machine, which consists of bearings and gears, requires lubrication.
- Refuel the oil cup of the double joint (the cup on the right) to ensure the work is flexible and the tapping machine is durable.
How to improve the efficiency of tapping
In the process of using a multi-axis tapping machine, it is inevitable that there will be a certain deviation in the pattern of the produced objects. However, it is essential to maintain quality control to ensure that the deviation is as small as possible to produce finer patterns.
The following is a detailed guide on how to improve the quality of the automatic tapping machine while in use.
During the machining process, errors can occur in the process system, which can cause changes in the orientation of the tool and workpiece during cutting, leading to a decrease in machining accuracy. These errors are related to the layout of the process system and the cutting process.
The main reasons for the error are:
There are several errors that can occur in the process system, including:
- Layout method errors
- Machine tool errors
- Adjustment errors
- Errors in tool and fixture making
- Workpiece device errors
- Errors caused by wear in the process system
- Errors caused by deformation of the process system
- Errors caused by thermal deformation of the process system
- Errors caused by internal stress in the workpiece
