As a mechatronics digital control automatic machine tool, CNC machine tools are widely used in precision machining and automated production. Due to the problems that often occur in production, such as workpiece out-of-tolerance, tool wear, breakage, which affect efficiency, many professionals in the world equip CNC machine tools with machine tool probes to monitor workpieces and detect tools.
In the production process of CNC machine tools, the machine tool probe can promptly alarm and compensate for workpiece out-of-tolerance, tool wear, and damage, or replace the tool, which eliminates the need for manual inspection, replacement, and time costs, greatly improves the degree of automation of CNC machine tools, and ensures the product quality of CNC machine tools that work for a long time.
Whether in China or other parts of the world, the quality problems in the CNC machining process severely restrict the overall efficiency of the advanced manufacturing system. But with the machine tool probe, the overall efficiency of the CNC machine tool can be greatly improved, the cost can be reduced, so it is a measuring equipment product worth promoting.
After the CNC machine tool is matched with the machine tool probe to realize online measurement, in addition to measuring the workpiece shape and position tolerance, facilitating the installation and adjustment of the workpiece, simplifying tooling and fixtures, reducing costs, shortening auxiliary time, and improving production efficiency, it can also automatically modify the processing according to the measurement results to improve machining accuracy. In this way, its use functions can be exerted to a greater extent, so that the user's investment in machine tools and probes can get a better return.
There is no need to doubt that machine tool probes are an important means for CNC machine tools to ensure production quality and increase productivity. They play a very important role in machining. Under the current situation where machine tool probes are not yet popular, there will obviously be broader development prospects.
