The automatic tool changer is abbreviated as ATC, which is the equipment on the CNC router, which can automatically change the tools, increase the equipment production capacity and increase the number of supporting tools. The automatic tool changer can quickly change the tools on the machine tool, reducing non-running time. The automatic tool changer is generally designed to improve the capability of the CNC router and can be designed to cooperate with a variety of tools. The automatic tool changer can also be used to replace worn or damaged tools. It can make the CNC router go further towards the goal of automation.
The automatic tool changer is designed together with the tool magazine that stores the unused tools, allowing the CNC router to automatically use a variety of tools for processing without human intervention. The main parts of the automatic tool changer include the base, the gripping arm, the tool holder, the supporting arm and the tool magazine. Although the automatic tool changer improves the speed and accuracy, compared with manual tool change, there are some additional problems. For example, the tool must be very easy to align, the tool changer must be easy to pick up the tool, and it must be simple. Way to get the tool out of the fixture. Therefore, ATC-specific tools will be placed in a specially designed tool holder.
The Syntec CNC controller originated from Taiwan. The Syntec controller is currently the most stable control system for ATC CNC routers. It has powerful functions, stable performance, and supports signal feedback and alarm reminders. There are also some functions that need to be rewritten through technology. Make it match with ATC CNC router reasonably. Moreover, it does not need to bundle servo motors and spindle motors for sale, and can be adapted to many types of servo motors, which greatly saves costs.
