Modernization of milling machines with NC DRX3000SUP
Customer: «MKgrup»,Ltd., Karaganda
Technological Process Specification
Wood processing plant, situated in Karaganda, was opened at the end of 2006.
At the moment of opening the plant was fully completed by modern equipment with microprocessor control
of China production. It was installed NC milling machine DRX3000SUP for wooden planck working and carved
doors and pane producing. During adjustment it was fuond out that some machine functions are blocked and
some blockings don’t work; it wasn’t allow outputing the machine work on the project level, whereas mechanic
didn’t have censures, therefore it was made a decision to modernize the machine for using it more rationally.
So, it was used modern drives of Japanese firm Yaskawa as motion drives and it was decided to modernize only
NC system, upgrated maximum functional machine possibilities.
NC systm modernization was carried out on the eliments Sinumerik 802C of the firm Siemens,
added additional wheel guards of manual positioning on axis, it is very simplified adjustment and further machine
operation, it was changed alarm system, addedadditional ends, also output virtual ends and limitations, permitting
to change tools from the tool storage unit without serious consequences and to do work on the planck, without fear to cut vacuum cups.
For convenience of task forming on the machine work, picture transferring from the development
program into special NC code it was insralled additional personal computer connected with NC panel. It was installed
additional software package on the computer. It was permitted upgrating big machine possibilities.
Project implementation period
Project implementation period is 2,5 months, commissioning is September, 2007
