    Key words: fourth generation; high-end walking machine; core technology; important technical indicators


    First, the status quo
    Chinese characteristics from the reciprocating WEDM machine tool development has been developed, has gone through more than 40 spring and autumn, ups and downs, witnessed the Chinese manufacturing industry from small to large, from weak to strong; if the reciprocating thread cutting Technology development is a microcosm of the development of Chinas industry, then the depth of the 18th century after the deepening of the reform of the Chinese characteristics of the line cutting technology also came to a crucial period; but the reality is that the wire walking The development of technology is not very satisfactory, most of the current market in the machine tool still there are four aspects of the serious defects:
    1. Large area, low roughness continuous and stable cutting;
    2. Consistency error of multiple identical parts.
    3. Positioning accuracy of porous positioning.
    4. Longitudinal dimension error in height direction.
    There are more serious problems in operability:
    1. The operator should have very skilled silk and tight silk skills.
    2. To be able to rely on experience at any time to pay attention to and remove the wire wire elastic changes.
    3. Must use a wire guide that is extremely inconvenient.
    4. Operators to master the different materials, different thickness of the combination of various electrical parameters, matching, if not quite experienced and time verification is very difficult to do.
    Whether it is technical defects or operational problems, in the final analysis is the lack of technological innovation, if these problems can not be resolved, in the wire cutting machine will eventually be abandoned by the market. And WEDM manufacturing enterprises have to consider the direction of development rather than product technology transformation.


    Second, innovative technology innovation concept
    1, take the machine in the advanced division of the machine
    With the level of walking in the advanced nature is only a try, although not necessarily accurate but can reflect the development trend, but also for the development of the wire to provide a directional reference;


    Note: The slow walking wire in the table refers to the entry-level walking machine

    2, the fourth generation in the machine logo
    2.1, fully closed loop adaptive AC servo electrode wire tension control system (access to national invention patent: ZL200810046296.5)

    2.2, the first breakthrough in the tension of multiple cutting technology
    In the multi-cutting, the system according to the instructions of the database, the cutting time for each cut to set the value of the switch, although the absolute value of each tension is not the same, but every time the cutting operation of the electrode wire tension to maintain accurate and constant, This is an effective way to solve the longitudinal dimension error of the workpiece under low roughness
    3, the new technology to bring the new concept - five-axis linkage
    The five-axis linkage of the thread cutting machine is different from the general CNC machine tool (rotary axis), the original XYUVZ five shafts in the machine, but must be linked only XYUV four axes, where the sixth axis refers to the tension control shaft (F axis), the tension control shaft structure is linear guide, ball screw fully closed loop AC servo control, and in the large taper cutting F axis must be echoed with the UV axis control, so the F axis to form a linkage with the UV axis, so This is not the same as the traditional sense of the linkage, we believe that the new concept of numerical control technology, but also the fourth generation of the machine to take one of the signs, five-axis linkage is to solve the large taper workpiece without wire cutter to cut the surface Roughness of the effective way.

    4.6, frame-type folding door sink (patent number: ZL2009 20 304351.6)
    To solve the workbench waterproof board does not fall to the requirements, in order to wear silk easy to operate, the sink does not use the way to open the door on both sides, but one side folding open the door, the main structure is to reduce the weight.
    These patented design compared with the core technology, may be small insects, but they have a very large practical significance, not only to the operator a great convenience, its guiding ideology also fully embodies the people-oriented scientific concept of development.

    Fifth, the acceptance of high-end walking machine important indicators
    High-end walking machine tool is not the core technology show, but not acting, but to bayonet see red to kill a trail, but to really create a higher value for the user, but to bravely close to walking wire, So the high-end wire walking machine tool indicators must have a real, high-end, which is mainly reflected in the high-precision requirements, stability requirements, and human operation requirements; we refer to the National Standard for walking machine and combined with the thread The characteristics of the machine, the development of the assessment of the real high-end wire walking machine technical indicators;
    In the absence of the use of any form of wire guide in the state:

    5, machine positioning accuracy: according to the national standard acceptance of walking
    6,30 large taper without thread guide multiple cutting Ra 1.2um / 30000mm ²

    Core technology is not the purpose of accurate quantitative technical indicators is the value, compared with the core technology, the user is more concerned about is a complete technical indicators, it is clear the accuracy requirements, but also to the stability of the clear specification, combined with the previous The humanized application design, thus, whether it is a serious technical defects or operational problems on the serious problems have been effectively resolved; high-end wire walking machine precision indicators of course is the core technology created, but when we put These core technologies used in a brand in Taizhou body, but because of "acclimatized" and can not meet these accuracy requirements, which once again that no matter how good the core technology should have to match the host platform.


    In short, the core technology is to rely on independent research and development, in the time need to continue to innovate, never-ending, in space to more disciplines, multi-field integration and innovation, which requires a high-quality innovation team, To have the "old and strong do not fall Albatron of the Chi, poor and easy to move the heart of the heart," the firm will, but also dare to face the R & D personnel flow to the enterprise innovation and R & D to bring high risk, so that the control of high-end In the development of the machine
