From belt drive system to new spindle rotation motor

Main spindle rotation...
It is considered to be the most important position in the cutting process. For this reason, we have been working on the development of the spindle rotation motor since the beginning of our involvement in gun drills. Conventional gun drills manufactured by our company used a belt drive system.
What is belt drive system? Let me explain it briefly here. The belt drive system is a drive system that uses a belt and pulley to transmit the motor power to the spindle to rotate the spindle.

Development of a new method of spindle rotation motor

For gundrilling machines that require cutting fluid to be supplied to the tool, it has been common practice to locate the motor in a separate location. However, because of the following disadvantages, we have developed a new method of spindle rotation motor.

Because of the belt and pulley drive, rotational vibration is transmitted to the spindle itself.

Power transmission efficiency is poor.

Space is required in the height direction.

Large number of parts (transmission parts, etc.)

The motor we developed to solve this problem is the built-in motor, which is directly attached to the hollow shaft.

A new type of servo motor was born from a built-in motor

By using this type of
Eliminating transmission parts reduces vibration and improves rotational accuracy.
Reduced number of parts → Space saving
However, there are still improvements left to be made.
Due to the characteristics of the inverter (frequency command) control, there is no feedback (return of rotation information) of the rotation speed information, so uneven rotation occurs when the load changes. (It is not possible to respond to the load fluctuation during processing.
Rotation accuracy in the low speed range is reduced.
The machining range is limited due to the lack of torque in the low speed range.
At the end of 2010, we started to develop a new spindle unit. We asked ourselves, "Can't we use a servo motor that can provide feedback control and torque from the low speed range for the spindle? This idea led to the birth of the new servo motor.

Advantages of the new servo motor

The hollow resolver enables loop control of the rotation speed to maintain a constant rotation speed even when the load fluctuates.

Stable rotational accuracy.

Maximum torque can be produced from low rpm.

The actual hole diameter that can be machined is about twice as large as that of our company.

Deep hole drilling of difficult-to-cut materials, which was not possible with conventional machines, is now possible.

Hollow resolver: A sensor used to detect the rotational position of a motor.

Loop control: Control in which the output is fed back to the input. In this case, the rotation shall be controlled based on the rotation speed information.

A servomechanism is a mechanism that automatically operates to follow the target value of the position, orientation, and posture of an object as a control quantity. An automatic control device. The word "servo" comes from the Latin word "servus" (meaning "slave" or "servant" in English).
