Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR SUPPORTING WORKPIECES IN MACHINING OPERATIONS, BY MEANS OF AN ARRAY OF ACTUATORS
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE PORTER DES PIECES A USINER DANS DES OPERATIONS D'USINAGE AU MOYEN D'UN RESEAU D'ACTIONNEURS
Abstract:
(EN) Workpieces of irregular or complex geometry are supported during machining operations by a table (2) affording an array of housings (3) and equipped with a battery of actuators (4) , each insertable removably in a relative housing (3) and pilotable between multiple operating positions so as to support the workpiece (100) . Signals containing identification codes and motion- inducing commands are generated by a master control unit and transmitted to the support table (2) , in such a way that that the actuators (4) can be positioned to accommodate the contours of the workpiece (100) . Each actuator (4) is associated with one of the identification codes and thus directly and selectively in receipt of the motion- inducing commands .
(FR) Selon l'invention, des pièces à usiner de géométrie irrégulière ou complexe sont portées pendant des opérations d'usinage par une table (2) dans laquelle sont ménagés plusieurs logements (3) disposés en réseau, ladite table étant également équipée d'une batterie d'actionneurs (4), chacun pouvant être inséré amovible dans un logement relatif (3) et pouvant être piloté entre des positions fonctionnelles multiples afin de porter la pièce à usiner (100). Des signaux contenant des codes d'identification et des instructions d'induction de mouvement sont générés par une unité de commande maître et sont transmis à la table de support (2), de sorte que les actionneurs (4) puissent être positionnés de façon à s'adapter aux contours de la pièce à usiner (100). Chaque actionneur (4) est associé à un des codes d'identification et reçoit ainsi de manière directe et sélective les instructions d'induction de mouvement.
