Abstract: A profile cutting apparatus comprising: a cutting head supporting a nozzle through which a cutting medium passes, and at least two drives that drive the cutting head to tilt relative to a vertical axis while driving the cutting head to rotate about the vertical axis, wherein the tilt of the cutting head is achieved by the relative difference in motion between the two drives.
Abstract: A servo drive system of a press machine includes a ram, an operation shaft which vertically moves the ram, and a servo motor which operates as a power source of the ram and which generates ram pressure using a torque based on at least one speed-torque characteristic of the servo motor. The operation shaft is directly driven using the servo motor. The at least one speed-torque characteristic of the servo motor is set in a manner such that a motor torque of the servo motor at which a capacity of electric energy supplied by a servo amplifier is determined becomes the motor torque at which an optimal punching pattern of the ram is generated from a light load to a heavy load according to a type of workpiece to be worked by the press machine.
Abstract: A continuous working system of a press machine includes a ram, an operation shaft which vertically moves the ram, and a servo motor which operates as a power source of the ram and which generates ram pressure using a torque based on at least one speed-torque characteristic of a motor. The operation shaft is directly driven using the servo motor. The operation shaft is continuously reciprocated and turned through an angle range corresponding to a distance between a predetermined lower end position required for press working by the ram and an upper end position such that the ram vertically moves between these positions by the servo motor, thereby subjecting a work to a continuous press working. The upper end position is set to a position slightly below a medium height of the entire vertically possible stroke of the ram. The lower end position is set to a position slightly above a bottom dead center of the entire vertically possible stroke of the ram.
Abstract: A servo drive system of a press machine has a pair of servo motors which can generate necessary ram pressure by compositing and using a torque based on the same speed-torque characteristics. The servo motors are symmetric with each other in a mirror image manner. The servo motors are opposed to each other at opposite ends of an operation shaft which vertically moves a ram. The servo motors are integrally operated, thereby directly driving the operation shaft.

Abstract: A ram driving device for a press machine having: a ram; a horizontal drive axle (33) rotatably provided horizontally in a frame (3) of the press machine; a motion converting mechanism (35, 63, 83) associated with the horizontal drive axle, for converting a rotational motion of the horizontal drive axle into up-and-down motion of the ram (29); and a plurality of servomotors (43, 47) linked with the horizontal drive axle, for rotating the horizontal drive axle in synchronism with each other, to drive the ram up and down. The motion converting mechanism is a connecting rod (35); and a link mechanism (63) driven by a ball screw (61) and a nut member (77); and an eccentric ring cam (33) and a cam follower (91). Since the ram can be driven by a plurality of the servomotors synchronously, the device can generate a large press power of various moving stroke and various moving speed freely, without increasing the maintenance cost thereof.
Abstract: An improved punch assembly (10) for a punch press comprises a main piston (13) driving a punching tool (11) and an auxiliary piston (17) which can be selectively enabled to cooperate with the main pisto1 (13) in a high force, slow speed mode or disabled to allow the main pisto1 (13) to operate alone in a low force high speed mode. The punch assembly (10) also comprises a pressure transducer (41) and position transducer (25) whose respective outputs are connected to a microprocessor controller for the punch assembly. Operation of the punch press is microprocessor controlled to reduce noise and punch cycle time. A stripper assembly (42-48) is also provided and operates in conjunction with the punching tool (11) under microprocessor control to facilitate tool stripping. The stripper assembly (42-48) can also be used for automatic measuring of work sheet thickness.
