Yaskawa Application Overview: Grinder

Yaskawa Grinder Application

Heavy cutting is done at slow speed. With a constant wheel pressure on the material to be shaped, the pounds/minute of material removed, or work done, varies with the wheel speed. This is the constant torque part of the profile. After the heavy cutting is complete, a polishing (light cutting) operation is performed. A high speed, lighter wheel-to-material pressure is maintained; therefore, less material in pounds/minute is removed. This is the constant horsepower part of the load profile.

Yaskawa AC drives have features that save energy, which allows the motor to run at optimal efficiency and precision when performing light grinding. Energy Saving Mode also reduces motor noise and stabilizes the load, perfecting the finishing process. Yaskawa AC drives can automatically detect changes to the amount of torque required during the shaping and finishing phases using Torque Detection. This feedback enables the drive to quickly detect changes as the grinding stone dulls or clogs. This can lead to significant cost savings by prolonging the life of grinding stones.

Yaskawa Lathe Applicaiton

A metal lathe usually spins the work piece along a horizontal axis. A mandrel or chuck is mounted to the headstock of the lathe. A follower block or tail block is mounted to the tailstock. A blank piece is clamped to the lathe and pressure is applied to the blank via a cutting tool. Material is cut away on each pass across the blank. After each pass, the lever arm is moved closer to the final position. Eventually, when the proper amount of material has been removed, the part is completed.

Yaskawa AC drives can be interlocked with the CNC control systems so the operation of the CNC controller and the AC drive are synchronized.

In addition, the Energy Saving Mode in Yaskawa AC drives automatically detect changes to the amount of torque required during shaping and finishing phases. This feedback enables the drive to quickly detect changes as the cutting tool becomes dull.
