The 3D in precision machining
Machining processes today have great importance in the productive activity, both directly, in the manufacture of the necessary products and components, and indirectly, for the elaboration of auxiliary elements, such as tools Precision machining, or elements for the manufacture of products needed for larger processes.
In the technological landscape, the course of the world of precision machining has evolved radically in a short time, and in particular, in the last decades a giant leap forward has been made towards improvements that influence the multiple factors of traditional machine tools . Aspects such as cutting line, machining technology, the means of production … All have contributed to the companies dedicated to this, benefits translated into higher productivity, the speed with which the new machines work by numerical control ( CNC), and also, better precision in the details of these products, which have in turn allowed to expand the variety of materials with which they work and give them more complex and precise forms.
Even so, the boom in technology for machining seems to have not reached the ceiling and is still within a margin of improvement, through the use of better technologies that are already being developed, and the optimization of the processes of machining to measure That there is a broader knowledge of it. That future is called, 3D.
Due to this constant evolution of the machining processes, its industrial importance has gained ground. From an economic point of view, helping to increase the performance in the manufacturing processes, as well as the productivity of the same, to maintain the competitiveness of the companies. The availability of specialized machinery, which works through programming (CNC), has made it possible to reduce the time of manufacture and to work with large volumes of work. And from the technological point of view, it has been a challenge for the manufacture of increasingly competitive products, with the added value that, in addition to this, has helped to increase, as we said, the complexity of the processes of these machining , Which now accept works with new materials, complex shapes, quality results and great precision …
The future of precision machining companies, as in all sectors, is in the hands of technological development and will be reduced to continuous improvement of these processes to manufacture faster, better and more economical, meeting the demands of costs, Deadlines and quality demanded by customers.
And this is where the current technological side of 3D calibration plays a very important role.
In our workshop of Mecanica Curiel Barcelona, we do not yet have this type of technology, because according to the particular requirements of our customers and manufacturing precision processes, we have not required them, but we know that the future, little by little, will pass through this technology. Our praxis passes, mainly by a powerful modern machinery, combined with the knowledge of old mechanics and the tools, even manual, that support it.
The rise of systems, called 3D, used to design, is growing. Linear calibration of three axes, which prevails today in companies working in the machining sector, do not consider these 3D relationships between each of these axes. Only 3D calibration is adequate to ensure that machine tools are capable of making 3D parts accurately.
The 3D evolves into even shorter production times, with better product quality, less frequent repairs and lower costs. We will see how this process continues to evolve and what is the next step, to continue guaranteeing precision machining processes that are increasingly competitive and cost effective.
