Title: (DE) FÖRDERSYSTEM FÜR EINE HONMASCHINE MIT VOLLER STEUERUNG DER FÖRDERKRAFT, FÖRDERRATE UND POSITIONIERUNG SOWIE VERFAHREN DAFÜR
(EN) HONING FEED SYSTEM HAVING FULL CONTROL OF FEED FORCE, RATE, AND POSITION AND METHOD OF THE SAME
(FR) SYSTEME D'ALIMENTATION POUR UNE MACHINE A RODER LES CYLINDRES DISPOSANT D'UN CONTROLE COMPLET DE LA FORCE, DE LA VITESSE ET DE LA POSITION D'AVANCE ET PROCEDE CORRESPONDANT
Abstract: front page image
(EN) The feed system (30) for a honing machine (10) provides a capability to dynamically correct in real time errors in bore size inferred arising from variations in feed force, and a method of operation of the same. The system (10) allows a user to select between rate and force controlled honing modes, which provides one or more of the advantages of both modes. The system provides capabilities for automatic rapid automatic bore wall detection, compensation for elasticity of elements of the feed system (30) and honing tool (14), and automatic tool protection. The system is automatically operable using feed force, feed rate and positional information for honing a work piece (20) to one or more target parameters, such as one or more in-process sizes and a final size.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système d'alimentation (30) pour une machine à roder les cylindres qui permet de corriger dynamiquement en temps réel des erreurs de taille d'alésage induites dues à des variations dans la force d'avance et un procédé de fonctionnement dudit système d'alimentation. Ce système (10) permet à un utilisateur de sélectionner entre des modes de rodage à vitesse ou à force contrôlées, ce qui apporte un ou plusieurs avantages des deux modes. Ce système présente des capacités de détection automatique et rapide des parois d'alésage, de correction de l'élasticité des éléments du système d'alimentation (30) et de l'outil de rodage (14) et de protection automatique des outils. De plus, ce système peut s'activer automatiquement au moyen de la force d'alimentation, de la vitesse automatique et d'informations de position afin de roder une pièce (20) suivant un ou plusieurs paramètres cibles, tels qu'une ou plusieurs tailles en cours de fabrication et une taille finale.
