  • Patent number: 10252345
    Abstract: A machine tool includes a movement device, which has a first feed shaft and a second feed shaft that mutually intersect, and a plurality of tools, which are driven by the movement device and respective blade edges of which are staggered stepwise. The blade edges of the tools are aligned with the second axis due to the inclination of the tools as a unit. The machine tool is capable of executing center level adjustment of a plurality of tools mounted on a tool post against a workpiece having a larger diameter, and is also capable of reducing wasted time in non-cutting operation via equal stroke lengths of the tools.

  • Patent number: 9592556
    Abstract: A main spindle located in a region of a rotary guide bush device where the rotary guide bush device (has been attached to be disposed in a position of a front (F) along an axis (C) direction when the rotary guide bush device having a guide bush, which is supported in a removable manner by a guide bush-supporting base (supporting base) provided in the front (F) along the axis (C) direction of the main spindle, is removed. A seal member (fixed to the guide bush-supporting base has contact with an outer circumferential surface of a main spindle cover over an entire circumference, so that processing with or without the guide bush can be selected and a complicated process required for switching the processing with or without the guide bush can be simplified.

  • Patent number: 9360856
    Abstract: Provided is a machine tool control device which reduces a processing burden of calculating a thermal displacement amount, avoids decrease in processing speed, and increases accuracy of machining a workpiece. A machine tool control device (100) includes a sequential analysis control unit (110), an advance analysis control unit (120), a correction value calculation unit (130), a change amount calculation unit (140), and a mode switching unit (150), and operates a machine tool (M) by executing a machining program that is corrected on the basis of a thermal displacement amount occurring on components constituting the machine tool (M) to enable highly accurate machining of a workpiece (W).

  • Patent number: 9156036
    Abstract: There is provided a workpiece separation apparatus permitting input of a mixture of workpieces and chips stably within a flow current and separating them accurately and efficiently. The workpiece separation apparatus includes an input cylinder inserted within a separating container, and a fluid supplying means arranged so as to supply fluid to the separating container from a part lower than a lower end of the input cylinder, and configured such that the fluid overflows and flows out of the upper end of the separating container due to a flow current generated within the separating container, and such that the level of the fluid rises up in the input cylinder and the fluid does not flow out of the upper end of the input cylinder, but is maintained substantially in a resting state and at a level above the level of the upper end of the separating container.
