Drills size is 1. Super sensitive D. It is a small machine designed for drilling small holes at high speed in light and small jobs. As the operator can sense the progress of the drill it is called S. High speed and hand feed are necessary for drilling small holes.

The base of the machine may be mounted on a bench or on the floor. This is designed for handling medium sized W. It is similar to a S. It consists of round column and a round table. The table can be moved up and down on the column for accommodating W. The table may be rotated o about its own centre. The upright D. Heavy box column gives the machine strength and rigidity. The table is raised or lowered by an elevating screw that gives additional support to the table.

Heavier W. It is intended for drilling medium to large and heavy W. It consists of a heavy, round vertical column mounted on a large base. The column supports a radial arm which can be raised and lowered to accommodate work pieces of difference heights The arm may be swung around to any position over the work bed.

The drill head containing mechanism for rotating and feeding the drill is mounted on the radial arm and can be moved horizontally on the guide ways and clamped at any desired position.

This 4th movement of the drill head permits drilling hole at an angle to the H. All these 5 movements enable it to drill on a W.

When a No. The speed and feed of spindles are controlled independently. This type of machine is specially adapted for production work. A series of operations may be performed on the work by simply shifting the work from one position to the other on the work table each. Spindle may be set up properly with difference tools for different operations.

Video 2, 3 Dr. But the feeding motion may also be secured by lowering the drill heads. The function of the multiple spindle D.

The spindles are so constructed that their centre distance may be adjusted in any position as required by various jobs within the capacity of the drill head. For this purpose. Feeding motion is usually obtained by raising the work table. The spindles are connected by a number of planetary gears so that even different size drills can be loaded. The machine may be Horizontal type or Vertical type. This helps in feeding the drill in a st.

Special machine and drills are required for drilling deep holes in rifle barrels. This process permits the chip to clear out from the work. A long job is usually supported at several points to prevent any deflection. The work is usually rotated while the drill is fed into the work. The machine is operated at high speed and low feed.

The drill is withdrawn automatically each time when it penetrates in to the work to a depth equal to its dia. Video 6. There are different types of deep hole drilling processes and are categorized by how the cutting coolant flushes heat and chips from the cutting face. Coolant is pumped through a hole in the inside of the drill. The cutting tool is a straight fluted solid rod that has a hole bored down the center.

They are: Gun drilling. It flows back outside the drill. Drilling size is mm.

Depth to Diameter ratio is highest among the three methods. The cutting tool is a tube.

Very high penetration rates can be achieved with this system along with good surface finish. Coolant is pumped around the outside of the cutting tool at heavy pressure and carries chips out through the center of the tube. Because tubes have minimum sizes. Morse taper No. Floor space required 7. Specifications 1. It maintains the alignment of the drill so that hole is straight and to the right size. Used for brass. CI that produce broken chips. They provide less lifting power. They provide great lifting power.

Helix angle: Based on the value of the angle the drills can be classified as 1 Slow spiral series: Also used in horizontal applications where drill is not rotating. Effect of change in effective rake is negligible on drill performance.

Lips are the cutting edges that extend from the centre of the drill to the outer diameter Dr. Less point angles generate wider and thin chips. Increase in point angle increases the cutting efficiency of the drill because most materials are cut efficiently in the form of thick chips. Smaller the point angle. Smaller point angles results in lower effective rake. Higher point angles generate narrow and thick chips. Lip angle: Large angles 80— are used for ductile matls.

Small angles 60—80 are used for brittle matls. Making a cone shaped enlargement to provide a recess for a screw head. Enlarging one end of the hole to form a square shoulder with original hole to avoid projections in assemblies. They form fine powder that will fall by gravity. To prevent binding they have a slight back taper. The cylindrical part of the reamer has no cutting edges.

The cutting edges at the end are ground to a bevel. They are supplied without a shank and has a hole through the center.

A arbor is used in conjunction with the shell reamer. Machine Tap with holder Manual Tap 8 Spot facing — Process of smoothing and squaring the surface around the hole or seat for a nut or head of a screw for burr removal. Spot facing tools with pilot Dr.

Burr formation during drilling Centre Drill used for making a centre impression on surface for locating the drill point. Video 9. Used for producing large holes in plates. The first milling machine came into existence in about and was of French origin.

A milling machine is a machine tool that removes metal as the work is fed against a rotating multi point cutter. The cutter rotates at a high speed. Most commonly used for general shop work. Classification of this type is based on methods of supplying power to the table. The knee is vertically adjustable on the column. The table is mounted on the knee casting. The table can be moved longitudinally and cross wise on the knee casting.

Table can be fed as above. This is more rigid and sturdy. In addition to 3 movements in plain milling machine the table has a fourth movement i. This machine can produce spur. This enable it to perform helical milling. This enables milling in any plane. Taper spiral groves in reamers. The extra fifth movement is the table can be tilted in vertical plane by providing a swivel arrangement at the knee. The table movements are same as plain milling machine. The spindle head is clamped to the vertical column and can be swiveled at an angle.

Hence no. It is having two spindle heads adjustable in vertical and transverse directions. Plano Miller: It resembles a planer. It has a cross rail which can be raised or lowered along with cutters. Hence the table movement here is much slower than planning machine. The face milling cutters can be mounted on tow or more vertical spindles and can be set at diff. Continuous loading and unloading of work pieces can be done by the operator while milling is in progress.

Planetary milling machine: Pantograph machines are available in 2D or 3D models. A pantograph is a mechanism that is generally constructed of four bars or links joined in the form of parallelogram. The tracing stylus is moved manually on the contour of the model to be duplicated and the milling cutter mounted on the spindle moves in a similar path on the work piece.

Floor space required 5. Spindle nose taper for vertical milling machine spindle and horizontal milling machine arbors Dr. Net weight required 6. Axial Rake has significant effect on axial force and thrust applied to the spindle. As the cutting edges are arranged radially on the periphery the rake angle is called radial rake which is the cutting edges angle w.

Face cutter: Two rake angles are defined here. Radial rake has major effect on tangential and radial forces. Due to this reason. According to the relative movement between the tool and work. Here the cutting force is not uniform throughout the length of cut by each tooth.

Peripheral Milling: It is the operation performed by a milling cutter to produce a machined surface parallel to the axis of rotation of the cutter. The quality of surface generated and the shape of the chip formed is dependent upon the rotation of the cutter relative to the direction of feed movement of the work.

The chips accumulate at the cutting zone. The metal is removed by the cutter which is rotated against the travel of the W.

The thickness of the chip is min. It generates a poor finish. The cutting force is directed up wards and this tends to lift the work from the fixtures. This is used for roughing operations. Cutting force and power are more. Hence this operation should be performed on rigid machines provided with back last eliminator. This operation cannot be used on old machine as the back lash error present in the screw elements that may cause vibration and damages the work surface considerably.

This is used for finishing operations.

This results in improved surface finish. The metal is removed by the cutter which is rotated in the same direction of travel of the W. The chips are also disposed off easily and do not interfere with the cutting. The cutting force is directed down wards and this tends seat the work firmly in the work holding devices.

Cutting force and power are less. The thickness of the chip is max. Hence fixture design is easier. Two independent nuts are mounted on lead screw. Turning the knob forces the nuts to move along lead screw in opposite directions. The nuts engage common crown gear which meshes with rack. The axial movement of rack is controlled by the backlash eliminator.

This eliminates the backlash play between nut and table lead screw. The chip thickness is min. In this operation both up milling and down milling may be considered to be performed simultaneously on the work surface. When the cutter rotates through half of the revolution the direction of movement of the cutter tooth is opposite to the direction of feed and the condition reverse when the cutter rotates through other half of revolution.

The surface generated in face milling is characterized by the tooth circular marks of the cutter. Face milling gives superior finish than peripheral milling. Face Milling: This is performed to produce a flat machined surface to the axis of rotation of the cutter. When end cutting edges are only used to remove metal. When peripheral cutting edges are used. The cutting characteristics may be of peripheral or face milling type according to the particular cutter surface used.

End Milling: It is a combination of peripheral and face milling operations. The cutter has cutting edges both on the end face and on the periphery. Brown and Sharpe Taper of 0. Plain Milling: Producing plain. Side Milling: Producing flat vertical surface on the side of a work piece by using side milling cutter. This is called slab milling if performed with a peripheral cutter and called face Milling if a face milling cutter is used.

Machine Tool Spindles

The distance between the two cutter can be adjusted by using spacing collars. Video 11 4. Gang Milling: Machining several surfaces simultaneously using a No. Straddle Milling: Producing flat vertical surfaces on both sides of the work piece by using two side milling cutter mounted on the same arbor. Form Milling: Producing irregular contours using form cutters like concave.

A vertical milling machine is most suitable for end milling.

Machine tool

End milling: Producing flat surfaces which may be vertical. Helical Milling: Producing helical flutes or grooves around the periphery of a cylindrical or conical work piece. Saw milling: Producing narrow slots or grooves using saw milling cutter. Gear cutting: By using form relieved cutter having the same profile of the tooth space of the gear.

It can also be performed for complete parting off operation. Cam Milling: Producing cams by using universal dividing head and a vertical milling attachment.

Indexing is accomplished by using a special attachment known as dividing head or Index head. This is adopted for producing hexagonal and square headed bolts cutting splines on shafts. The choice of any one method depends upon the No. There are several methods of indexing. The spindle and index crank are connected by bevel gears. Also called rapid indexing. The plate has 24 equally spaced holes. The required No. While indexing.

This can be performed in both plain and universal dividing head. Q Find out the index movement required to mill a hexagonal bolt by direct indexing. With a rapid index plate having 24 holes. The bevel gears are replaced by a worm and worm wheel. For indexing fractions of a turn. Also called plain indexing. The shaft carrying the crank has a single threaded worm and it meshes with the worm wheel on spindle having 40 teeth.

Index plates. The new numerator now stands for the No. If the crank movement obtained from the formula is a whole No. If the crank movement obtained from the above formula is a whole No. Q Set the dividing head to mill 30 teeth on a spur wheel blank. Video 13 Ans. Use 21 hole index plate. This can also be performed with 18 hole plate [ ] or 24 hole plate [ ] also. The differential indexing may be considered as an automatic method of performing compound indexing.

The indexing method is called compound due to the two separate movement of the index crank in two diff. Here the Index crank is connected to milling machine feed rod through a set of gears to get continuous rotation for spindle for making helical grooves as shown.

Setting of universal dividing head for spiral or helical grooves Dr. Cutting speed. Feed per tooth. Internal broaching is done by either pulling or pushing the broach through a hole drilled in the work piece. Broach is used to produce internal forms like spline holes. In broaching there is only one motion. Pulling is highly preferred to facilitate alignment and avoid buckling. Since there is no feed motion. The broach is stationary but the W.

External forms can also be produced by using pot broach. Here the broach is made in segments and fixed inside a fixture called pot fixture. Pot broach Internal broaches Dr. Grinding is the process of removing excess material by the abrasive action of a rotating wheel on the surface of the work piece.

Artificial abrasives are free from impurities and possess better performance properties. The grinding wheel consists of sharp crystals called abrasives held together by suitable bonding. CBN etc. It is basically a finishing process employed to produce high accuracy and surface finish. They include Al2O3. Natural abrasives available in nature include sand stone natural silica.

The various bonding materials used are: It cannot be used where mechanical impact or thermal variations are likely to occur. Conventional abrasive resin bonded wheels are widely used for heavy duty grinding because of their ability to withstand shock load. This occupies next place to Vitrified bond. Vitrified bond is suitable for high stock removal even at dry condition. This bond is also not recommended for very high speed grinding because of possible breakage of the bond under centrifugal force.

Its principal use is in thin wheels for wet cut-off operation. They are denser than resinoid bonds but are less heat resistant. They are also used for making regulating wheels in centreless grinding. Rubber bond was once popular for finish grinding on bearings and cutting tools. At present use of shellac bond is limited to grinding wheels engaged in fine finish of rolls.

At one time this bond was used for flexible cut off wheels. This not suitable for heavy duty work. D — Diamond 60 — Average grit size or Mesh Size. B — CBN. Specification of Grinding Wheel Eg: C — SiC.

Classification of Grinding Machines Video 1. Video 5 Dr. Can perform both External and Internal Grinding. Similar to lathe. Stopper is provided. Here the grinding wheel and regulating wheel are profiled to get the taper. Feeding System in External Machine 1 Through feed is for step less small components like piston pins. Here the regulating wheel rpm is less and also inclined.

Different Dressers Video 9. Truing is the act of regenerating the required geometry on the wheel. Truing is required whenever a new wheel is loaded to ensure concentricity with machine spindle. As they can be removed by dressing. Dressing is the conditioning of the wheel surface which ensures that grit cutting edges are exposed from the bond and thus will be able to penetrate into the work piece material and substantially influence the condition of the grinding wheel.

It is done with a diamond truing tool by removing the outer layer and creating a concentric layer w. Glazing of the wheel is nothing but abrasive particles getting blunt. This can occur due to grinding of soft materials or by improper selection of grinding wheels or improper process parameters or improper cutting fluids.

Dressing will remove the clogged layer. This is opposite in turning i. Hence high rotational speeds are used for minimizing the effect of negative rake.

The negative rake increases the cutting forces and promote rubbing action affecting the cutting action. This is because of the large contact area between the wheel and the work resulting due to the large no. Hard wheels are used for soft materials as wear out is less and they retain the grains for more time. The Grinding wheels have random geometry. Soft wheels are used for hard materials as they break easily to release worn out grains High self sharpening capability.

Also Al. Creep feed Grinding: It is different from conventional grinding. Here the entire depth of cut is completed in one pass only using very small feed rates 0.

High depth of cuts of order 1 to 30 mm with low speeds of 1 to 0. Cutting forces and power required are more. Open and soft wheels are used to accommodate large volume of chips generated. The cutting fluids are oil based due to low grinding speeds. This is mainly used for grinding work pieces made out of hard materials with deep slots or complex profiles and also for removing large amounts of material. Wheel wear rate is more. Machining Process Milling: Machining Process Planning, shaping: Machining Process Drilling: Machining Process Reaming, Broaching: Machining Process Grinding: Finishing Process Honing: Super Finishing Process Lapping: Super Finishing Process Burnishing: Super Finishing Process Dr.

Honing This is used for finishing the inside surface of a hole. It can also be used for finishing external surfaces.

Here abrasives are in the form of sticks which are mounted on a mandrel which is given a reciprocating motion along the hole axis super imposed on a uniform rotary motion. Honing finds special application for cylinder bores as it produces a cross hatched pattern useful for lubrication.

Special cutting fluids like sulphurised oils are used. Honing can also be used for finishing gears where tool is made in plastic or any bonding material impregnated with abrasives. Other examples include bearings, hydraulic cylinders, and gun barrels. Lapping A lap is generally made of material softer than work and has the same shape of the opposed mating part. Straight narrow grooves are cut at 90o on the lap surface and abrasive powder is sprinkled on the surface.

Lapping is performed by hand or machines. To carry out the process, the lap is pressed against the work and moved back and forth over the surface in a figure-eight or other motion pattern, unrepeated paths subjecting all portions of the surface to the same action.

For example, several cams, no one of which directly matches the desired output shape, can actuate a complex toolpath by creating component vectors that add up to a net toolpath. Van Der Waals Force between like metals is high; freehand manufacture as described below in History of square plates produces only square, flat, machine tool components, accurate to millionths of an inch, but of nearly no variety. The process of feature replication allows the flatness and squareness of a milling machine or the roundness, lack of taper, and squareness of the two axes of a lathe machine to be transferred to a machined work piece with accuracy and precision better than a thousandth of an inch, not as fine as millionths of an inch.

As the fit between sliding parts of a made product, machine, or machine tool approaches this critical thousandth of an inch measurement, lubrication and capillary action combine to prevent Van Der Walls force from welding like metals together, extending the lubricated life of sliding parts by a factor of thousands to millions; the disaster of oil depletion in the conventional automotive engine is an accessible demonstration of the need, and in aerospace design, like-to-unlike design is used along with solid lubricants to prevent Van Der Walls welding from destroying mating surfaces.

Abstractly programmable toolpath guidance began with mechanical solutions, such as in musical box cams and Jacquard looms. The convergence of programmable mechanical control with machine tool toolpath control was delayed many decades, in part because the programmable control methods of musical boxes and looms lacked the rigidity for machine tool toolpaths. Later, electromechanical solutions such as servos and soon electronic solutions including computers were added, leading to numerical control and computer numerical control.

When considering the difference between freehand toolpaths and machine-constrained toolpaths, the concepts of accuracy and precision , efficiency , and productivity become important in understanding why the machine-constrained option adds value. With two choices for each of four parameters, the types are enumerated to sixteen types of Manufacturing, where Matter-Additive might mean painting on canvas as readily as it might mean 3D printing under computer control, Matter-Preserving might mean forging at the coal fire as readily as stamping license plates, and Matter-Subtracting might mean casually whittling a pencil point as readily as it might mean precision grinding the final form of a laser deposited turbine blade.

Humans are generally quite talented in their freehand movements; the drawings, paintings, and sculptures of artists such as Michelangelo or Leonardo da Vinci , and of countless other talented people, show that human freehand toolpath has great potential.

The value that machine tools added to these human talents is in the areas of rigidity constraining the toolpath despite thousands of newtons pounds of force fighting against the constraint , accuracy and precision , efficiency , and productivity.

With a machine tool, toolpaths that no human muscle could constrain can be constrained; and toolpaths that are technically possible with freehand methods, but would require tremendous time and skill to execute, can instead be executed quickly and easily, even by people with little freehand talent because the machine takes care of it.

The latter aspect of machine tools is often referred to by historians of technology as "building the skill into the tool", in contrast to the toolpath-constraining skill being in the person who wields the tool. As an example, it is physically possible to make interchangeable screws, bolts, and nuts entirely with freehand toolpaths. But it is economically practical to make them only with machine tools.

In the s, the U. National Bureau of Economic Research NBER referenced the definition of a machine tool as "any machine operating by other than hand power which employs a tool to work on metal".

These processes are a type of deformation that produces swarf. However, economists use a slightly broader sense that also includes metal deformation of other types that squeeze the metal into shape without cutting off swarf, such as rolling, stamping with dies , shearing, swaging , riveting , and others. Thus presses are usually included in the economic definition of machine tools.

For example, this is the breadth of definition used by Max Holland in his history of Burgmaster and Houdaille, [4] which is also a history of the machine tool industry in general from the s through the s; he was reflecting the sense of the term used by Houdaille itself and other firms in the industry.

Many reports on machine tool export and import and similar economic topics use this broader definition. The colloquial sense implying [conventional] metal cutting is also growing obsolete because of changing technology over the decades.

The many more recently developed processes labeled "machining", such as electrical discharge machining , electrochemical machining , electron beam machining , photochemical machining , and ultrasonic machining , or even plasma cutting and water jet cutting , are often performed by machines that could most logically be called machine tools. In addition, some of the newly developed additive manufacturing processes, which are not about cutting away material but rather about adding it, are done by machines that are likely to end up labeled, in some cases, as machine tools.

In fact, machine tool builders are already developing machines that include both subtractive and additive manufacturing in one work envelope, [5] and retrofits of existing machines are underway. Many speakers resist using the term "machine tool" to refer to woodworking machinery joiners, table saws, routing stations, and so on , but it is difficult to maintain any true logical dividing line, and therefore many speakers accept a broad definition.

It is common to hear machinists refer to their machine tools simply as "machines". Usually the mass noun "machinery" encompasses them, but sometimes it is used to imply only those machines that are being excluded from the definition of "machine tool". This is why the machines in a food-processing plant, such as conveyors, mixers, vessels, dividers, and so on, may be labeled "machinery", while the machines in the factory's tool and die department are instead called "machine tools" in contradistinction.

Regarding the s NBER definition quoted above, one could argue that its specificity to metal is obsolete, as it is quite common today for particular lathes, milling machines, and machining centers definitely machine tools to work exclusively on plastic cutting jobs throughout their whole working lifespan. The machine slide, which has many forms, such as dovetail ways, box ways, or cylindrical column ways. Machine slides constrain tool or workpiece movement linearly.

If a stop is added, the length of the line can also be accurately controlled. Machine slides are essentially a subset of linear bearings , although the language used to classify these various machine elements includes connotative boundaries; some users in some contexts would contradistinguish elements in ways that others might not.

Tracing, which involves following the contours of a model or template and transferring the resulting motion to the toolpath. Cam operation, which is related in principle to tracing but can be a step or two removed from the traced element's matching the reproduced element's final shape.

For example, several cams, no one of which directly matches the desired output shape, can actuate a complex toolpath by creating component vectors that add up to a net toolpath. Van Der Waals Force between like metals is high; freehand manufacture as described below in History of square plates produces only square, flat, machine tool components, accurate to millionths of an inch, but of nearly no variety.

The process of feature replication allows the flatness and squareness of a milling machine or the roundness, lack of taper, and squareness of the two axes of a lathe machine to be transferred to a machined work piece with accuracy and precision better than a thousandth of an inch, not as fine as millionths of an inch.

As the fit between sliding parts of a made product, machine, or machine tool approaches this critical thousandth of an inch measurement, lubrication and capillary action combine to prevent Van Der Walls force from welding like metals together, extending the lubricated life of sliding parts by a factor of thousands to millions; the disaster of oil depletion in the conventional automotive engine is an accessible demonstration of the need, and in aerospace design, like-to-unlike design is used along with solid lubricants to prevent Van Der Walls welding from destroying mating surfaces.

Format is the method of writing the words in a block of instruction. It is common to hear machinists refer to their machine tools simply as "machines".

This is suitable for drilling. It is nothing but the engine lathe equipped with some extra attachments for accurate and precision work like taper turning attachment.
