Comparison of cam post system of compound machining machine tool

- comparison between gibbscam and general cam software post system

gibbscam as a professional cam solution for compound machining machine tool, its unique post-processing system is also specially targeted at the machine tool that maintains compound machining at 121 ℃ ± 2 ℃ for 30min. Its professionalism and the interface configuration embodied in gibbscam software are closely related to the post-processing system. The post-processing system of general cam software is mainly for simple milling or turning

the following is a brief introduction to the unique design for compound machining in the interface of gibbsc data display am:

1. Machine tool definition file: in gibbscam, the beginning of work is to select the machine tool used for this work. Gibbscam lets the subsequent programming environment know what functions need to be opened through the machine tool definition file (MDD), such as whether there is a choice of upper and lower turrets, whether the upper turret is a structure with b-axis and automatic tool changer magazine, or a cutter head structure with 12 knives, etc; See Figure 1 for the definition and selection of machine tool

2. For example, select hard tt65 with FANUC any vmm[2t2s-yc], which is a Harding tt65 double turret double spindle machine tool, including Y-axis and c-axis milling functions. When creating a tool in gibbscam, there are options for the upper and lower turrets and the position of the corresponding turret (see Figure 2). At the same time, in the programming process, there are options for whether the current programming is for spindle 1 (or spindle) or spindle 2 (or countershaft) (see figure 3):

3. In the processing programming stage, As a professional compound processing solution, gibbscam not only provides various turning and milling programming processes (general cam basically only provides these functions), but also provides various auxiliary action programming of compound processing machine tools, such as tailstock control, feeding and unloading control, fixed support control, spindle 2 docking spindle 1, etc. See figure 4-figure 7 for specific examples:

Figure 5 tailstock entry control dialog box (also tailstock can be used as raw material exit control for beauty, nursing and other products, see Figure 4 list)

Figure 6 fixed support positioning dialog box (also fixed support entry and exit options, see Figure 4 list)

Figure 7 secondary spindle (spindle 2) Enter the docking dialog box (the corresponding spindle 2 return options are shown in the list in Figure 4)

4. For composite machining machines, in addition to preparing machining programs, for specific machine tools (such as dual channel machine tools), it may be necessary to define synchronous operations to avoid interference between multiple moving parts. Gibbscam's innovative graphical synchronization manager is the perfect solution to this problem. As shown in Figure 8. Any cutting operation and auxiliary operation compiled in gibbscam can synchronously define the operation between different channels in the synchronization manager, so as to achieve the purpose of simplicity and efficiency

5. From the above points, it basically describes the difference between gibbscam as a professional cam solution for compound machining machines and a general cam solution, and post-processing is a direct response to various configurations of the software programming environment. Therefore, it can be said that the professionalism of software configuration brings flexibility to post-processing. At this point, the general cam solution is difficult to meet the programming requirements of complex compound machining machines. (end)
