Abstract: A clamping mechanism of rotation table device includes a shaft fixing a workpiece to an end portion thereof, a brake disk fixed to the shaft, and a clamping mechanism clamping or unclamping the brake disk by driving a piston. The clamping mechanism includes a plate spring fixed to a rear plate fixed to a casing and a piston and urging the piston in a clamping direction at all times by an elastic deformation restoring force and the plate spring is fixed to the rear plate or the piston through an annular plate.
Abstract: A machine tool includes a rotary table on which a workpiece is mounted, a clamping mechanism for clamping the rotary table against rotation, and a sensor for detecting completion of a clamping operation of the clamping mechanism. A numerical controller for controlling the machine tool calculates the time required for actual operations of the clamping mechanism, taking into account beforehand the processing time for processing a feedback signal from a sensor and the time until the next operation of the machine tool. By controlling the clamping mechanism based on the calculated required time, the cycle time of clamping or unclamping operations is shortened.
Abstract: Provided is a machining tool having a telescopic cover, with a plurality of covers sequentially overlapped and telescopic in the moving direction of the movable portion of the machine tool. The machining includes a lubricant supply unit to supply a lubricant to a slide portion of the telescopic cover.
Abstract: A rotary table assembly is provided with a rotary table with a workpiece mounting table on one end of a rotating shaft and a cover covering the rotary table. A seal member is disposed between the cover and the workpiece mounting table, thereby preventing foreign matter, such as chips, from adhering to the rotary table.
Abstract: A crude oil lifting system and a method utilizing a vane pump for conveying a fluid. The crude oil lifting system comprises: an oil pipe and an oil pump connected to the oil pipe. The oil pump is the vane pump. The vane pump is provided with a cylindrical stator. The stator has arranged therein a drive shaft and a rator sleeved onto the drive shaft. The drive shaft is arranged within the stator along the direction parallel to the length of the stator. An intake plate is arranged at the lower end of the stator. A discharge plate is arranged at the upper end of the stator. The intake plate, the discharge plate, and the stator form a cylindrical cavity. The rotor is arranged between the intake plate and the discharge plate. An intake opening for taking in the crude oil is arranged on the intake plate. A discharge opening for discharging the crude oil is arranged on the discharge plate.
Abstract: A controller for a machine tool outputs an operation instruction signal to the machine tool. The machine tool transmits a signal indicating that the instructed operation is compete. The controller determines a response time of operation to be a difference in time between a point in time when the numerical controller outputs an operation instruction signal and a point in time when the numerical controller receives a signal from the machine tool. When the response time of operation exceeds a preset value, the numerical controller determines that a corresponding maintenance component needs to be replaced and informs a user of the need for replacement by means of a display unit.
