Study on Modular Design Method for CNC Lathe
A multi-dimensional module partition methodology is put forward for CNC lathe, in which not only the functional module partition and the physical structure module partition of CNC machine tools are taken into account, but the characteristics of different stages of in the whole life-cycle of machine tools is considered as well. On the basis of this the principle of module partition for CNC machine tools are presented. The mechanical structure system of CNC lathe is elaborated on the functional module and structural module. A CNC machine tool company’s HTC Series CNC lathes modular design is illustrated as an example.
