CNC machining is often used for complex designs, small products and parts. With CNC machines, a variety of auto parts can be machined more precisely.
With the rapid development of the automobile industry, the efficient, high-precision, and high-stability processing of complex main components of automobiles is an effective way to shorten the production cycle of products and improve the efficiency and competitiveness of enterprises. CNC machining technology enables rapid prototyping and manufacturing of complex automotive parts. At the same time, virtual manufacturing technology, flexible production technology and CNC technology integrated manufacturing technology are widely used in modern automobile processing and manufacturing. The intelligent development of CNC manufacturing technology in the manufacturing process of auto parts will become the development trend of the automobile manufacturing industry.
With the launch of Industry 4.0 and the Made in China 2025 core plan, it marks the arrival of the fourth industrial revolution in the world. Pay more attention to integrating the informatization and industrialization of the product manufacturing process, and realize the intelligentization of manufacturing equipment and its control. CNC machine tools and CNC systems such as smart factories, smart production, human-computer interaction, Internet of Things, machine self-organization, and digital manufacturing are the core elements to realize intelligent production.
CNC machining technology can realize rapid prototyping manufacturing of complex auto parts. Virtual manufacturing technology, flexible production technology and CNC technology integrated manufacturing technology are gradually being applied in modern automobiles. Widely used in manufacturing. The intelligent development of CNC system in the process of auto parts manufacturing will also become an inevitable development trend of modern automobile manufacturing industry. Automobile industry
The Importance of CNC Machining in Auto Parts Manufacturing
Today’s CNC operations include 3-axis and 5-axis machining and turning with power tools. These features provide more or less more ways to manipulate and manipulate material in the machine, so not only can curves be trimmed instead of right angles, but they are often more complex and can produce good results. Not surprisingly, this has led to a wide range of applications, including some critical automotive parts.
Compared with manual work, CNC machining technology has realized the standardization and standardization of auto parts manufacturing, which has laid a foundation for improving the production quality and operating rate of domestic auto parts. CNC technology can provide a complete set of automation solutions for the manufacture of major auto parts. Receive processing data based on industrial Internet and big data monitoring and remote services during processing, perform virtual processing and program code inspection, and use the processing status of the CNC system to perform automatic identification, self-learning and adaptive functions, self-optimization functions, and realize the workpiece. High-quality processing, using industrial robots and CNC machine tools on-line batch detection, mainly for efficient and flexible processing of automobiles and CNC in batch manufacturing, to achieve a wide range of machine tool parts.
Status Quo of CNC Custom Machining in Automotive Industry
Some companies, such as Porsche, have turned to custom CNC machining to produce equipment for rare, limited-run vehicles or vehicles that may not be available to owners or shops.
Traditionally, if one of the 52,000 different parts that make up Porsche’s classic model catalog is out of stock in warehouses, specific tools have to be used to make more parts. Custom CNC machining is not applicable. This process is more cost-effective than rebuilding a factory to produce specific parts, and each part can be ordered within hours or days, reducing the amount of warehouse space required.
Porsche tested the movement by CNC machining and customizing the Porsche 959’s fully functional clutch release lever. The lever must pass the same tests as the original machined part, including a 3-ton pressure test. As part of the pilot program, the manufacturer plans to add 20 parts to its digital library, expanding as needed.
Custom car designs are limited to the average car owner. Drivers can choose interior and exterior colours and accessories, but the make, model and appearance of the vehicle are the same as any other specific model on the road. Rolls-Royce is dedicated to creating fully bespoke vehicles using CNC machining for larger budget buyers.
This custom trick of CNC machining is not technical. In fact, 30 to 40 percent of new Rolls-Royce drivers will choose a stock model from a dealership rather than order their own bespoke model. Giving you the option to create a custom vehicle, you can design everything from the frame and body to the interior entertainment console. This could expand the luxury car industry in ways that manufacturers never anticipated.
Prospects for the development trend of CNC system in the future
Faced with the demand for high-quality, high-efficiency, and integrated intelligent manufacturing of multi-degree-of-freedom complex parts, the future CNC system will develop towards multi-degree-of-freedom composite processing. Turning, milling and drilling can be done on multiple surfaces in a single installation. Multi-process composite processing. In addition, the CNC system must have more advanced trajectory planning and motor control strategies to achieve high-speed, high-precision machining.
With the development trend of intelligent manufacturing, the CNC system must be equipped with a highly intelligent human-machine interface to realize the planning function of the machining process and the diagnosis and adaptive control strategy of the machining process. Future CNC systems will provide comprehensive self-monitoring and control throughout the machine tool manufacturing process. The CNC system can automatically plan the installation location, machining trajectory and machine tool based on the 3D model of the part. Planning time is the shortest process step possible using Ethernet and Internet technologies to enable machine communication and collaboration within a factory. Manipulator communication realizes automatic loading and unloading, loading and unloading, etc., and realizes automatic and intelligent rapid prototyping manufacturing of main complex parts.
