Machine Tools

A machine tool is one which is suitable to convert a raw material into a new form and size desired. Such processing is done manually or automatically by appropriate tools. The machine tools can be built for machining of metal, wood, marble, hard plastics and many other materials.

Today machine tools are able to produce everything fromeye glass frames to automobiles. It would be unthinkable without the machine tool to produce a large quantity of engines and bodywork performed with incredible precision.

A special machine tool using erosion technology can produce molds to  create  many common products used every day. For example, working tools, kitchenware, toys, etc.

Most of the automatic machine tools incorporate at least a spindle which is used to perform operations on three linear axes. Each axis (X, Y, Z) serve as a cutting direction with the X and Y being the plane and the Z-axis refering to the vertical movement. The three degress of movement, this means for controlling the three axes at the same time not only independently but also in the circular and spatial directions at the same time. The spindle can operate from a few to tens of thousands to hundreds of of revolutions per minute depending on the required processing.

In this regard it is worth noting that the technology is constantly evolving. Most spindle motors are made with synchronous or asynchronous motors with high performance. Another technology is used in continuous wound field motors, which are used on machines thatrequired a significant power.

For applications with synchronous motors, Finmotor has developed a series of known impedance at high frequency, the FIN960F, to be inserted in series with the synchronous motor for added protection and smooth reliable operation.

The FIN960F has significantly improved applications with synchronous motors ensuring linearity at all frequencies and allowing a considerable saving of energy dissipated when compared to traditional impedances. They are usually installed within cabinets without additional ventilation or cooling due to their low operating temperature. Due to the linearity, the FIN960F inductance reduces the losse of the spindle by improving mechanical precision at the same time. Currently, most of the movements X, Y, Z in a machine tool uses brushless motors. These motors have low inertia and can reach high speeds quickly while maintaining excellent performance and very high precision work. To drive the motors and brushless spindle motors typically use electronic ballasts often referred to as industrial drives which create significant noise issues.
