The Control System Construction of the Multifunctional Combined CNC Machine
In this paper we present a multifunctional combined CNC machine that integrates the technology of USM, EDM and grinding. For non-conductive hard and brittle materials, the machine tool could perform ultrasonic machining and grinding machining combined ultrasonic vibration; for conductive hard and brittle materials, electrical discharge with or without ultrasonic vibration could be implemented. Conductive engineering ceramics have been used for elementary experiments, the results show that it is more efficient and more stable for processing this kind of materials by using the multifunctional combined CNC machine. On the basis of brief introduction about the structure of the machine tool, this paper emphasizes the form of control system, the gap state inspection that can be used to ensure the stability in processing and the principle for servo control.
