Detailed Examples Of Shaft Machining Technology

The formulation of the process specifications in the shaft parts is directly related to the quality of the workpiece, labor productivity and economic benefits.

In response to the above requirements, the following is an example. A carburizing spindle (pictured above), 40 pieces per batch, material 20Cr, except for internal and external threads S0.9 ~ C59. The carburizing process is more complicated, and a sketch of the process must be drawn for the roughing process (pictured).

The formulation of the process specifications in the shaft parts is directly related to the quality of the workpiece, labor productivity and economic benefits.

A part can have several different processing methods, but only one of them is more reasonable. In the formulation of the machining process specification, the following points must be noted.

  • 1.In the process analysis of the parts drawing, it is necessary to understand the technical requirements of the structural characteristics, precision, material, heat treatment, etc., and to study the product assembly drawing, component assembly drawing and acceptance criteria.
  • 2.The processing route of carburizing parts is generally: cutting → forging → normalizing → roughing → semi-finishing → carburizing → carbon removal processing (for the part that does not need to improve hardness) → quenching → threading, drilling or milling Groove→rough grinding→low temperature aging→semi-finishing→low temperature aging→finishing.
  • 3.Rough reference selection: If there is a non-machined surface, the non-machined surface should be selected as the rough reference. For casting axes that need to be machined on all surfaces, the minimum surface is corrected according to the machining allowance. And choose a smooth surface, let the gate. Select a solid and reliable surface as a rough reference, while the coarse reference is not reusable.
  • 4.Fine benchmark selection: to meet the principle of baseline coincidence, as far as possible to select the design basis or assembly benchmark as the positioning benchmark. In line with the principle of benchmarking. Use the same positioning reference as much as possible in most operations. As much as possible, the positioning reference coincides with the measurement reference. The selection of high precision, stable and reliable surface is a fine benchmark.

Some points in the machining of the shaft:

  • 1.The two center holes are used as the positioning reference, which conforms to the aforementioned principle of reference coincidence and benchmarking.
  • 2.The part first uses the outer circle as the rough reference, the end face of the car and the center hole of the drill, and then the outer circle of the rough car is positioned with the two center holes as the positioning reference, and the taper hole is processed with the outer circle of the rough car as the positioning reference, which is the principle of mutual reference. The machining has a positioning datum that is more accurate than once. No. 3 Mohs cone accuracy requirements are very high. Therefore, the V-shaped fixture is required to achieve the geometric tolerance requirement with the outer circle of 2-ф30js5 as the positioning reference. When the cone is inside the car, one end is clamped by a claw, and one end is centered on the center frame, and the outer circle is also used as a fine reference.
  • 3.When semi-finishing and finishing the outer circle, a cone plug is used, and the center hole of the cone is used as a positioning reference for finishing the outer circular surface of the shaft.

For cone plugging requirements:

  • 1.Cone plug has high precision, ensuring that the taper surface of the cone plug has a high degree of concentricity with its tip hole.
  • 2.The cone plug should not be replaced after installation to reduce the installation error caused by repeated installation.
  • 3.The external diameter of the outer diameter of the cone plug should be made near the end of the shaft to facilitate the removal and removal of the cone.
  • 4.The main machining shaft is carburized and hardened with 20Cr low-carbon alloy steel, and the workpiece is not required to be hardened (M30×1.5-6g left, M30×1.5-6g, M12-6H, M6-6H), leaving 2.5-3mm carbon removal layer on the surface. .
  • 5.After the thread is quenched, it cannot be processed on the lathe. If the thread is first screwed and then quenched, the thread will be deformed. Therefore, the thread generally does not allow hardening, so the carbon layer must be left in the diameter and length of the threaded portion in the workpiece. For internal threads, a 3 mm decarburization layer should also be left at the orifice.
  • 6.In order to ensure the accuracy of the center hole, the center hole of the workpiece is also not allowed to be hardened. For this reason, the total length of the blank is 6 mm.
  • 7.In order to ensure the grinding precision of the outer circle of the workpiece, the process of grinding the center hole must be arranged after the heat treatment, and a fine surface roughness is required. When the outer circle is ground, the roundness affecting the workpiece is mainly due to the coaxiality of the two top holes and the roundness error of the top hole.
  • 8.In order to eliminate the grinding stress, a low temperature aging process (baking) is arranged after the rough grinding.
  • 9.To obtain a high-precision outer circle, the grinding should be divided into rough grinding, semi-finishing, and fine grinding. Fine grinding is arranged on a high precision grinding machine.
