Current situation and development trend of high-speed machining technology in China

1 introduction

for mechanical parts, high-speed machining is to process at a faster production pace. One production cycle: seven basic production links: part feeding - positioning and clamping - tool fast forward - tool feeding (detection) - tool fast retreat - tool loosening and unloading - quality detection. High speed cutting refers to that the cutting motion (or movement) speed of the cutting edge of the tool relative to the surface of the part is 5 ~ 10 times faster than that of ordinary cutting, which is mainly reflected in the three links of tool fast forward, tool forward and fast backward. It is a subsystem of high speed machining system technology; For the whole automatic production line, the characterization of high-speed processing technology is to produce and process with a simpler process flow and a shorter and faster production pace. This requires breaking through the traditional concept of machining and reforming the original processing technology (mode) on the premise of ensuring product quality: either adopt one station with multiple processes, one knife with multiple blades, or replace grinding with turning, reaming, milling, or replace rolling, inserting, milling and other processes (modes) with broaching, rubbing, extruding, rolling processing (modes), so as to shorten the process flow of the whole production line as much as possible; For a product, high-speed processing technology also means that enterprises should complete all kinds of information collection and processing, design and development, processing and manufacturing, marketing and feedback information of R & D products with a shorter production cycle. This has something in common with the agile manufacturing engineering concept

high speed machining technology came into being in the dynamic and changeable global market economic environment in modern times. In the fierce market competition, enterprises are required to have high product quality, low cost, fast listing, good service, clean environment and timely product innovation, which leads to the continuous development of high-speed processing technology. Since the 1980s, high-speed machining technology has gradually developed into a comprehensive system engineering technology based on traditional metal (non-metal) cutting technology, automatic control technology, information technology and modern management technology. It has been widely used in production process manufacturing enterprises (such as modern car (car) production enterprises); With the increasing social demand for personalized products, their production conditions are multi variety, single piece and small batch manufacturing (in machinery manufacturing, this production mode will account for 70% of the total output value). High speed machining technology will be further applied and developed in discrete or mixed production process enterprises (such as mold, energy equipment, shipbuilding, aerospace... And other manufacturing enterprises)

At the end of the 20th century, China reformed the planned economic system, carried out reform and opening up, and built a socialist market economic system with Chinese characteristics. Practical high-speed machining technology has been widely used in the machinery manufacturing industry with the introduction of advanced CNC automatic production lines, cutting tools (tools) and CNC machine tools (equipment), and the corresponding management mode, technology and concept have been integrated into the enterprise. Entrepreneurs are increasingly aware of the important position and role of modern information technology and enterprise systems and mechanisms in future sustainable development and market competition. The socialist market economic environment not only promotes the transformation of enterprises, adjustment of industry, product structure and technological transformation, but also shows a good and broad prospect for enterprises to apply and develop high-speed processing technology

2 China has introduced high-speed machining technology in the automatic production line of CNC cars. Since the 1980s, China has successively introduced many more advanced automatic production lines of CNC cars from Germany, the United States, France, Japan... And other countries, which has led to the unprecedented development of China's car manufacturing industry. The typical ones are the automatic production lines of FAW Volkswagen Jetta car from Germany and Shanghai Volkswagen Santana car, which are at the international level in the mid-1990s. Among them, many practical high-speed machining technologies are applied. From this part, we can understand the current situation and development trend of high-speed machining technology in the world. This paper focuses on the FAW Volkswagen Jetta car transmission and development production line

2.1 overview of the imported Jetta CNC car automatic production line

FAW Volkswagen Jetta car automatic production line is composed of high-speed production lines such as stamping, welding, coating, final assembly, engine and driver. Meanwhile, the parallel engineering management mode and management technology of Volkswagen AG are introduced, and various automatic lines are operated. The annual production capacity of cars is 150000, and the manufacturing pace is 1.50 points/vehicle. Among them, the engine and driver production line has a total of 627 various machining equipment, 253 imported and 374 domestic, which are basically CNC rigid automatic production lines. There are 9 kinds of self-produced engine parts, 27 kinds of transmission parts, and the rest are social supporting. The annual output is 270000 engines and 180000 transmissions. It produces 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder Jetta Audi car five valve EFI Engines and supporting drivers at the international level in the 1990s. The production pace is 30 ~ 40 seconds/set. The production line adopts air-cooled dry cutting technology. Its machining process reflects the most advanced technical level in contemporary car manufacturing industry. Car marketing is mainly in the domestic market. Due to the lack of independent intellectual property rights of cars, the research and development of new models is based on the existing FAW Volkswagen Jetta auto production line, and continues to import relevant information and technology from Volkswagen AG (the situation of Shanghai Volkswagen Santana Auto production line is similar)

2.2 overview of the blank technology of FAW Volkswagen car engine and driver (engine and transmission)

the blank of key parts of FAW Volkswagen Jetta Audi car engine and driver are high-strength cast iron, cast aluminum and precision die forged structural steel parts formed by precision casting, and some parts adopt precision powder metallurgy sintering forming process. Its high-speed machining technology requires that in the process of batch production, the machinability of materials is good and stable, and the cutting allowance of parts blank is controlled within 1.2 ~ 4mm ± 0.3mm. At the beginning of the production line, the parts are imported. Since 1997, relevant domestic enterprises have successively overcome the technical problems of precision forming technology, chemical element selection and matching of part materials and heat treatment technology of batch production parts blanks after several key problems, aiming to achieve the technical indicators of high-speed machining automatic production line (Technology) that have high requirements for the machinability and dimensional accuracy consistency of part blank materials, and the localization of driver parts blanks has reached more than 95%
