Title
(EN) TOOL EXCHANGE SYSTEM FOR MACHINE TOOLS
(FR) SYSTEME DE CHANGEMENT D'OUTIL POUR MACHINES-OUTILS
Abstract
(EN)
In a tool exchange system, in which the selection of a tool (8) supported on a magazine (9) is done by the rotation of a main shaft (5) via a pair of gears (20, 21), an elastic member (71) is provided so as to retain the magazine (9) in a processing position (waiting position) which does not interfere with a processing operation, and a first cam means (11) adapted to move the magazine (9) between a tool exchange position and the processing position in response to the vertical movements of a Z-slider (3) moving along a column (1), and a second cam means (12) adapted to operate a tool setting and removing means (6) are added.
(FR)
Dans un système de changement d'outil, où la sélection d'un outil (8) supporté dans un magasin (9) est effectuée par la rotation d'un arbre principal (5) via une paire d'engrenages (20, 21), un organe élastique (71) permet de retenir le magasin (9) dans une position d'usinage (position d'attente) qui n'interfère pas avec une opération d'usinage. Sont également prévus un premier organe à came (11) servant à déplacer le magasin (9) entre une position de changement d'outil et la position d'usinage en fonction des mouvements verticaux d'un coulisseau dans l'axe Z (3) se déplaçant le long d'une colonne (1), et un deuxième organe à came (12) destiné à actionner un organe (6) de mise en place et d'extraction d'outils.
