PREFACE

At very outset of the prologue it becomes imperative to insist that


vocational training is an integral part of engineering curriculum.
Training allows us to gain an insight into the practical aspects of the
various topics, with which we come across while pursuing our B.Tech
i.e. vocational training gives us practical implementation of various
topics we already have learned and will learn in near future.
Vocational training always emphasizes on logic and commonsense
instead of theoretical aspects of subject.

On my part, I pursued four weeks training at B.H.E.L. Jhansi. The


training involved a study of various departments of the organization
as per the time logically scheduled and well planned given to us.

The rotation in various departments was necessary in order to get


an overall idea about the working of the organization.

A Brief Introduction

By the end of five year plan it was envisaged by the planning


commission that the demand for power transformer would raise in the
coming years. Anticipating the country’s requirement B.H.E.L.
decided to set up a plant which would manufacture power and other
type of transformer in addition to the capacity available at B.H.E.L.
Bhopal. The Bhopal plant was engaged in manufacturing of
transformer of large rating and Jhansi unit would concentrate on
power transformer like instrument transformer, traction transformer
for railway etc.

This unit of Jhansi was established around 14 Km from the city on


the NH no. 26 on Jhansi Lalitpur Road. It was called second generation
plant of B.H.E.L. set up in 1974 at an estimated cost of Rs. 16.22 crores
inclusive of Rs. 2.1 crores for township. Its foundation was laid by Late
Mrs. Indira Gandhi, the prime minister on 9th Jan. 1974. The
commercial production of the unit began in 1976-77 with an output of

BAY – 8
It is involved in manufacturing of instrument transformer of 132KV and
220 KV. Voltage Transformer, Current Transformer and ESP
transformer.

INSTRUMENT TRANSFORMER: These are of two types

a) Current transformer (C.T.)

b) Voltage transformer (V.T.)

 CURRENT TRANSFORMER
It is step down transformer. High current is not directly measured but
by the current transformer is step down to lower measurable values,
which is generally low.
Body
• The main body is a bushing, it also act as insulator in which
winding is placed.
• The CT has a bottom and top chamber.
• The top chamber is the cylindrical tank of mild steel. It has
terminals for connection of HV coils. It has a glass window to
indicate the oil level.
• Below the top chamber there is bushing made of porcelain.
It has several folds and “rain sheds” to provide a specific
electrical field distribution and long leakage path. Some
bushings are of cylindrical while modern one is conical as
amount of oil porcelain used is reduced without any
undesirable effect.
• Bottom chamber house the secondary winding. There is
also connection box to which the connection low voltage
(LV) is made.

Windings
The primary winding consists of hollow copper/aluminum pipe bent
from of ‘U’ aluminum, used for low rating. For higher rating a set of
wire is passed through the pipe. For still higher rating, copper pipe is
used and for highest rating copper pipe with copper wire passing
through it is used. This arrangement depends on the current carrying
capacity. The bent portion of primary as in the bottom chamber
where as the free end is the top chamber. The straight portion lies
inside the bushing.

The primary is wound with crepe paper insulation goes in increasing


as we go downwards in the bottom chamber. The free ends are
provides with ‘ferrules’, which are small hollow cylinder through
which wires can pass connection to the primary are made through
these ferrules. The secondary is divided in a number of coils for
different set of tapings. Connections are different taping are made in
connection box. Each coil has an annular core of CRGO (silicon
steel).
 VOLTAGE TRANSFORMER
This is also step-down transformer the out of construction is the same
as that of C.T. It has also a top chamber, bushing and a bottom
chamber. The difference is only in windings.
Windings
The primary winding is of thick wire having a few turns. The winding
is heavily insulated with paper insulation. It has a hollow cylinder
passing centrally through it, which houses the secondary winding.
The clean and painted with either enamel or epoxy paint. The
costumer gives the choice of paint. Epoxy paint is generally used in
chemical plant and seashore installation. Terminals are then mark and
rating and diagram plate is fixed.
The job is sent to shipping department which takes care of its
dispatch by packing in the wooden boxes.

DIFFERENCE: - In current transformer, primary has less turns then


secondary and vice versa.

 ESP TRANSFORMER: -The Electro static precipitator rectifier


transformer is used for environmental application. It is used to
filter the suspended charged in the waste uses of an industry.
They are of particular use in thermal power station and cement
industry.

The ESP is a single ø phase transformer. It has


primary and secondary windings. The core is laminated and is
made up of CRGO sheet. It is a step up transformer. An AC
reactor is connected in series with primary coil. The output of
the transformer must be DC which is obtained by rectifying AC
using a bridge rectifier (bridge rectifier is a combination of
several hundred diodes). A radio frequency chock (RF chock) is
connected in series with the DC output for the protection of
secondary circuit and filter circuit. The output chosen the
negative because the particles of carbon are positively charged.
The dc output from the secondary is given to a set of plate
arrange one after the others. Impurity particles being positively
charged stick to these plates, which can be jerked off by
hammer. For this a network of plant has to be set up all across
the plants .This is very costly process in comparison with the
transformer cost. A relevant is also provided to prevent the
transformer from bursting it higher pressure develops, inside it.
It is the weakest point in the transformer body. An oil
temperature indicator and the secondary supply spark detector
are also provided. One side of the transformer output is taken
and the other side has a “marshalling box” which is the control
box of the transformer.

BAY – 9

Three types of transformer are fabricated in this bay:

1. Power transformer.
2. Dry type transformer.
3. Rectifier type transformer.

1) POWER TRANSFORMER

Power transformer find their wide use in electrical power system.


Actually these are the transformer, which have made A.C.
transmission very easy. These are step up or down transformer. The
primary and secondary voltage of power transformer comprises
material for magnetic circuit terminals, tanning switches, tank oil as
well as cooling devices.
A power transformer undergoing testing in BAY-9 is shown in above figure.

2) CAST RESIN DRY TYPE TRANSFORMER

The cast resin dry type transformer consists of high voltage and low
voltage winding made of Cu conductors which are completely
impregnated and cast under vacuum. The glass fiber epoxy insulation
of very good electrical and mechanical quality is used. Both HV and
LV windings are separately as one solid coil, the iron coil is made
from lamination of CRGOS. Bushing of cables boxes are provided for
HT and LT connections.

These transformers are used in under substation, high building and


hotels under the roof installation power plant etc.
3) RECTIFIER TRANSFORMER

In some industries electrical energy is supplied in the form of the


direct current. Rectifier transformer along with other equipments is
used to convert AC to DC. The advantages of using the rectifier
transformer along with rectifier unit efficiency are that it can be
connected to the supply lines. This being static unit efficiency is high.

It may appear to be power transformer, but it differs in many


respects, power transformer is used to step up or down the voltage
where rectifier, secondary of which corresponds to the output DC
voltage.

The quality that makes a rectifier transformer unique is:

The LV of a rectifier transformer carry very high current busher has to


be used for the connection winding and terminals.

Other associated equipment of rectifier transformer is also housed in


the same tank. A rectifier transformer is basically a constant current
transformer and consequently KVA rating changes with output
voltages.

The rating of a transformer is in watts greater than the rated DC


power output is required to provide for the harmonic current of
distorted waves.

TESTING

TRANSFORMER TESTING

In this shop testing on the transformer is carried out in one section


and for loco in other section. In transformer testing section there are
for MG. sets. The electrical specification of the entire test is already
given. These tests are done on demand of customer on transformer
manufactured, in this unit there are basically of test.

1. TYPE TEST – This test is done in a single unit of that type.

2. ROUTINE TEST – Bach and every unit has to be tested


individual.
(a) For power transformer – routine test

 Ratio test: Special equipment transformer from


routine meter.
 Resistance test: Special equipments – Kelvin and
Wheatstone bridge.
 Insulation resistance test: Special equipment megger.
 Separate source voltage withstand test: Special
equipments – HV transformers with associated control
and measuring desk, standard capacitance potential
divider.
 Iron loss measurement test : Special equipment :
• Electro dynamometer
• RMS voltmeter
• Average voltmeter
• Precision class measuring VT
• Variable frequency sine wave generator

TEST OF CURRENT TRANSFORMER

1. POLARITY TEST :

• INSTRUMENT USED: Polarity meter analog multimeter

One of the winding is supplied with 1.5V D.C supply and other is
connected to ammeter. If the direction of the deflection is correct
implies the connections are correct else it is wrongly connected.

2. ACCURACY TEST :

It is the test for checking the turn ratio steps:


 A standard transformer primary is connected across
the primary of the job.
 As the no. of turns of the secondary transformer is
known the no. of turns of secondary of job is
calculated.
 The ratio is taken and the max permissible error
should be not more than that specified by the design.
 Even the phase angle is checked for this max
permissible limit.

3. INTER TURN INSULATION TEST :

Checks for the insulation of the transformer

 Current is given to primary and secondary is open


circuited.
 Either of the rated primary current or the 4.5KV peak
secondary voltages whichever appears first is
allowed to withstand for 1 min.
 Then if the insulation can withstand then it is said to
be okay.

4. WINDING RESISTANCE :

Error in winding resistance appears if the conductors of different


length are used if the conductors are joined in between to check this
winding resistance is checked and if it appears then the internal
points of connections is changed.

The generation voltage stations are 6.9KV, 11KV and 13.8KV but due
to certain advantages like economical generation 11KV is the most
widely used. For this voltage needs to be stepped up. Transmission at
high voltage is desirable because it results in lesser losses, needs
thinner wire and hence is economical. If the current kept high the
copper losses become very high but iron losses are practically
constant.
In certain cases the required voltage may be less than the output
voltage, so in order to obtain it were required a tapping circuit. The
output may have a certain percentage variation, which may be tapped
in 4 or 6 equal steps. The type of tap changer depends on the
application of the transformer. Where a continuous power supply is
not required an Off Circuit Tap Changer (OCTC) may be used. Where
a continuous power supply is must e.g. at substation in cities etc. On
Load Tap Changer (OLTC) is used.

TECHNOLOGY

This department analyses the changes taking place in the world and
suggest changes accordingly. This is very important because the
product must not get obsolete in the market otherwise they will be
rejected by customer.

Function: Technology function can be classified as:

 Processing sequence: The sequence of process of


manufacturing is decided for timely and economic
completion of the job.
 Operation time estimate: It includes incentive
scheme management.
 Allowed operation time: It includes incentive
amount.
 Facilities identification: It includes looking for new
equipment, plant or tools to increase productivity.
 Special process certification: Special processes are
the once required expertise for example identifying
errors, cracks, air bubble in winding.
 Special tool requirement: Special tools are allotted
if possible. When required else the design has to be
reconsider.
 Productivity projects compilation: It includes the
initial analysis of the problem and their appropriate
solution to enhance productivity.

The principle of working is that “IF YOU DON’T MAKE CHANGES IN


YOUR COMPANY, THE COUSTMER WILL CHANGE YOU”.

BUS DUCT

Bus duct is used as connection between generators and


transformer. Bus duct are used in power connection over 150 M V.
The question now arise that why are bus duct preferred over normal
conductors. In high power application, insulations are the major
problems and frequent insulation breakdown occurs. If this does
happens then possibility of shorting of conductor’s and hence serious
damage may occur to both transformer and generators.

Bus duct are hollow pipes made of aluminum the cross section of
these ducts depends on requirements of the customer and is done by
the design department.

The cross section may have different shapes, circular, square


hexagon, octagon. The casing is also made of aluminum sheets.
Although aluminum is not a good conductor as copper still is preferred
over it because it is lighter than copper. Moreover, it is cheaper than
copper.

Bus duct are of two types:

a. Segregated Bus Duct(SBD)


b. Isolated Bus Duct(IBD)

In segregated bus duct one casing is divided into three separate


chambers for the three phases. In isolated bus duct is provided into
separate casing. The conductors i.e. duct is separated from the casing
by proclaim or epoxies (chemical) insulators.

Bus duct assembly contains three cubicles

 P.T. and S.P. cubicles


 N.G. cubicles
 L.A.V.T. cubicles

These cubicles have the circuit and the controls of the bus duct
assembly. The connection may be star or delta. The lines enter
from the top of the chamber. The top chamber has the neutral side
and the line side. The aluminum conductor in bus duct is not solid
because of ac has skin effect i.e. it flows only on outer surface of
conductor then why to waste money on the remaining conductor,
so we simply remove that part so it is hollow conductor.

“CNC MACHINES”
INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL WORKING OF CNC MACHINE

CNC machine tools have been widely accepted as time proven


manufacturing technique all over the globe. In India too, CNC
machine have picked up momentum and Indian Industries are going
for more and more CNC machine.

Numerical control turns machine tools into a flexible production unit


with a multitude of possible application. Although at first they were
mainly used for manufacture of geometrically complicated parts,
numerical control were later used for added enhanced efficiency in
the medium batch production of turned and milled parts. The next
step is the introduction of numerical controls in all sections of
productions. The aim in all the cases is to combine high productivity
with flexible possibilities of NC technology.

Other machine processes are being added to turning and milling


which may be already described as classical NC applications.
Conventional methods are being replaced by NC for sheet metal-
working processes of punching, nibbling and cutting. Productivity
increases multifold using numerical control with grinder, gear
hobbers and spark erosion.

ELECTRONIC REVOLUTION AND COMPUTER GROWTH

Modern day computerized numerical control system (CNC) is the


result of advancement and sky rocketing microelectronics with every
day breaks its own record and grow by leaps and bounds. Initially NC
machines had as many as 280 printed circuit board (PCB) and quite
extensive wiring which consequently made maintenance very difficult
and reliability was poor. First generation NC system had transistor
elements.
With advent of integrated circuits only 40 PCBs were used with
reduced wiring for the system. Further integration called ‘Medium
Scale Integration’ (MSI) replaced nearly 10 ICs and system involved
only 5 to 10 PCBs. With arrival of what is known as age of
“Microprocessors and Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) technique”
,modern day CNC machines use only 2 to 4 PCBs. The trend with
microprocessors helps in lowering cost of jobs and increment in
reliability to appreciable label.

Flexibility as inherent feature of minicomputer and microcomputer


gave new technology –“Software Oriented System”.

Unlike rigid hardwire system which had been used hitherto, this new
system comes to market as COMPUTER NUMERICAL CONTROL
(CNC) system.

With this latest technology, hardware cost of CNC system lowered


considerably whereas flexibility increased multifold due to software
capabilities.

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF NC MACHINES


Electronic industries association defines numerical control as “A
system in which action is controlled by direct insertion of numerical
data. The system must automatically interpret at least some potion of
data.”

In simple word numerical control means control by numbers. In NC


machine tools the main function is to control the displacement and
positioning of slides, spindle, speed, feed rate, selection of tool and
many other auxiliary functions. NC directs the machine tool to achieve
all these function in a very controlled and systematic manner .The
major elements that comprises NC machine tools are :-

 Control system – CNC


 The machine tool
 Servo drive units
 Feedback devices
 Operator control
 Electrical cabinet

Schematic diagram representation of NC machine tool

In CNC system, tape instructions are read by tape reader. These


instructions undergo electronic processing and system gives output
in the form of electrical signal to servo drive of the machine tool to
determine the length of movement and feed rates. System also directs
commands to various relays, solenoids etc to initiate operation of the
machine tools such as spindle motor starting and stopping , coolant
supply , auto tool change and other miscellaneous functions.

Once the machine tool has commenced its operation and operative
element and moving , it become necessary to ensure that required
lengths of movements have taken place or a particular function has
been accomplished. This is done by feedback devices. Position
feedback devices like linear scales, encoder, resolvers, inductosyn
feedback status of actual position of slides to control system. A
velocity feedback transducer known as ‘Tachogenertor’ is used for
velocity control as warranted during contouring operation . Feed
back of auto tool change function etc are taken from proximity
sensors or limit switches. Thus all operations of machine are
monitored continuously with appropriate feedback devices. In case of
failure or adverse feedback received by system , machine stops and
system displays ‘Fault message’ in clear English text.

TYPES OF NC
Based on feedback, NC system can be broadly classified in two types
as ‘Open loop’ and ‘closed loop’. The open loop system has no
feedback, whereas closed loop system utilizes feedback transducers
which continuously monitor the position of slides. This enable
machine to achieve a very high degree of accuracy in slide
displacement

Figure above showing open loop system.

From metal removal point of view, the classification can be made as


point to point, straight cut and contouring system. In point to point
system, the machine performs machining operations at specific
positions and does not affect work piece while moving from one point
to another. An example of this type is NC drilling machine.
Figure showing closed loop system.

Straight cut or straight line system provides movement at controlled


feed rate in one axis direction at one time. The examples of this are
face milling, pocket milling etc.

Figure demonstrating NC system’s some of different paths and cut.

The continuous path control system calls for co-ordinate movement of


the tool and work piece along different axes. This enables machining
of complex profiles, contours and curved surfaces.
MACHINE TOOL REQUIREMENT
In a NC machine certain design features are desirable on machine
tool. Simultaneous movement of 2 or more axes and high removal
capability of NC machines demand high dynamic stiffness in drives
and also stiff structural elements. The structure of NC machines should
be very rigid to withstand heavy cuts and it must be maintained for
long time to obtain high accuracies.

High positioning accuracy needed in NC machine make it essential to


have backlash free screw and nut and slides with a very low friction of
co-efficient. This is achieved by ground re circulating ball screw and
nut, tachoway bearings, hardened and ground guideways and friction
reducing linears such as Turcite and PTFE.

Electronic spindle drives on NC machines facilitate step less speed


over a wide range of RPMs.

All axes are driven by powerful DC Servo drives controlled by PWM


or SCR controllers through preloaded ball screw and nuts.

Automatic tool changer, centralized lubrication system, index table or


fourth axis is common features on NC machines.

ACCURACIES
CNC machines ensure better and consistent accuracies on job
compared to conventional machines. Positioning accuracies to be
extent of +10 or -10 microns and repeatability of +5 or-5 microns can
be achieved in NC machines depending on the elements used.

Parts Suitable For CNC Machines:-


To utilize the CNC machine effectively and economically the
suitable pats selection is very important, the following guidelines
should be observed:

 High number of operation per component.


 Complexity of operation.
 Size of batches medium.
 Repetitions of batches are often.
 Labor cost of component is high.
 Requires substantial tooling.
 Requires 100% inspection.
 Setup and inspection time is high.
 Ration of cutting time to non-cutting time is high.
 Varieties of components produced are more.
 Skilled required by operator is high.

GUIDELINES FOR EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION OF CNC MACHINES


When a company or organization first decides to buy CNC machine,
Orientation at all material level is required to get maximum return out
of huge investment made. It is not sufficient that management
understands the benefit of machine and decided to buy one, instead a
deep insight of CNC technology is must and will quite obviously helps
in buying suitable one and keeping its idle time minimum. Following
Are few point for effective utilization of CNC machine.

 It is vital that time taken for machine to become productive is


as short as possible. The key to good CNC machine lies in
prior planning, which should start the day management
decides to buy CNC machine.

 Programmers, maintenance people and operators should be


selected and trained before CNC arrives.

 Foundation and electric supply requirement should ready


before machine arrives.
 For small organizations where experts and maintenance staffs
are generally not available, proper support from supplier
should be ensured.

 It should be ensured that suppliers of NC machines provide with all


relevant technical documents for the machine.

 While NC can be out product its manual counterpart 3 to 4 times,


you can just easily loose this multi machine capacity during
breakdown. To keep downtime minimum, sufficient quantities of
spare are recommended by suppliers of machine should be
maintain. Also it is always make sure that supplier of machine
stocks critical parts and accessories.

 Sufficient thought should be given to tooling, accessories and all


other peripherals that surround CNC.

 CNC machines must be placed at convenient places in the shop


considering work flow and material handling. We can’t keep NC
machine waiting while we are searching for tools or waiting for
availability of raw materials.

 Future expandability should always be in decision making while


buying a CNC machine.

 Clean and dust free environment should be ensured in shop in


order to minimize breakdown efficient working and consequently
longer life of CNC machine.

GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO MECHANICAL AND


HYDRAULIC ITEMS

MECHANICAL ITEMS

1. Re-circulating linear roller bearing (Tychoways)


Good performance, high precision and high efficiency are quite
obvious requirements which CNC machines are required to fulfill.
Preconditions are basically good performance; high precision and
high efficiency are minimum wear rigidity and low friction. These
conditions are fulfilled by re circulating linear roller bearings.

The main characteristics of these bearing are continuous roller


circulation which follows unlimited linear movement and
elimination of the stick-slip effect which makes accurate
positioning of machine, possible.

Tychoways consists of hardened, high precision machined,


supporting elements, head pieces which are screwed on to the
front face, and a number of cylindrical rollers. As with cylindrical
roller bearings, the rollers are guided between the shoulders of
the supporting elements with a very close tolerance. Therefore
skewing the roller and resulting the additional friction as well as
the forces acting at the right angle to the rolling direction can be
avoided to a large extent. The retaining element made from the
plastic material and situated between the rollers not only prevents
the roller from falling out and sliding against each other but also
results in smooth return of rolling element to the return zone.

Elastic strippers which are built into head pieces provide the
bearing with effective protection from foreign matters.

Tychoways are suitable for grease and oil lubrication and can be
used in temperature range from – 30 degree to 90 degree.

2. Torsionally stiff coupling

These flexible coupling without backlash are specially designed


for servo or variable speed drives. They guarantee an accurate
transmission for angle of rotation even in presence of alignment
errors e.g. between motor shafts and ball screw of machine tools.
The special design for metal body allows a high torsional stiffness
which frequently exceeds the motor shaft itself. The bearing load
is kept low due to low lateral spring load stiffness. The conical hubs
provide a positive detachable connection between coupling and
shaft, without use of additional elements. Since there are no parts
subject to wear, couplings are maintenance free.

3. Angular contact ball bearings for spindle

Ball bearings for machine tools must support radial loads


combined with thrust loads in either direction. For this reason
preloaded, angular contact ball bearing are generally used. These
bearings are available with high (25 degree) and (15 degree)
contact angles. In selecting the proper sizes and type bearing,
consideration is given to size and construction of spindle and the
kind of mounting, since the latter relates directly to the contacts
spindle rigidity and deflection characteristics.
In general where the operating load is principally radial, low contact
angle type bearings are selected, but where the loading is chiefly in
thrust and high degree of axial rigidity is required, higher contact
angle type of bearings are recommended.
Also three bearings are preloaded to reduce axial and radial
deflection and may be mounted in three different arrangements

i) Back-to-back
ii) Face-to face
iii) Tamdem
In back-to –back (D3) mounting, the most commonly used the
stamped faces of the bearing outer ring project beyond the
inner ring and about each other. The angular line of contact of
these bearing diverges in direction of rotation of axis, resulting
in both axial and radial rigidity of the shaft and providing
maximum rigidity to the deflection. Upon clamping the inner
ring together by tightening the inner ring locknut, a load is
imposed through a ball and the outer rings. This takes up the
internal clearance and places these members in compression.
The initial amount of offset or clearance between the inner ring
faces, therefore, determines the amount of preload.
When bearings are mounted face-to face (DF) that is with the
unstamped faces of four rings together, the angular lines of
contact of bearing converge in direction of rotational axis and
the inner rings project beyond the narrow faces of the outer
rings. When the outer ring is clamped together, the initial
clearance between the outer rings is taken up, preloading the
bearing.
Different mounting arrangement for angular contact ball bearing

Duplex preloaded bearings mounted in the tandem (DT) divide the


work load between the bearings. So arranged, with the angular lines
of contact of bearing parallel and in tandem, they must be opposed
by another bearing or a pair of bearings, to provide axial stability to
the mounting.
4. Ball and screw nut

In ball screw, a screw runs on bearing balls, the screw thread is


actually a hardened ball race. The nut consists of series of bearing
balls circulating in similar race and carried from one end of the nut to
other end by return tubes. The balls provide the only physical contact
between screw and nut, replacing the sliding friction of conventional
screw with a rolling friction.

FEATURES OF PRECISION BALL SCREWS


4.1 High efficiency and reversibility
The high mechanical efficiency (over 90%) of ball screws results from
rolling contact of precision bearing balls and precisely ground
threads of screws. As compared to relatively low speed sliding
friction of conventional Acme screw, the power requirement for ball
screw is low because of high efficiency of ball screws are reversible
which makes it possible to back drives the unit by applying the axial
force to either nut or screw then rotating member is not restrained. In
this way, the unit can be used to convert a axial force into a rotator
torque.
4.2 No Stick Slip

Substituting rolling contact for sliding metal to metal contact


minimizes starting friction, eliminates the static slip tendency where a
slow speed linear motion is required.

4.3 Wear and Life

The balls rolling in the hardened grooves reduce wear to minimum,


eliminating any need for frequent compensating arrangement and
adjustment. Ball screws therefore, for years without any detectable
change in accuracy of system.

4.4 High Stiffness and Little Axial play

When axial is minimized in conventional nut screw assemblies, the


actuating torque becomes excessive and operation is not smooth. This
axial play in ball screws may be reduced to zero preloading and a
light smooth operation is still possible. Therefore both low torque and
high stiffness can be achieved simultaneously.

LUBRICATION
In view of life and efficiency, ball screws require adequate lubrication
which may be either greasing or oiling.

For greasing, grease based on lithium soap is usually recommended


and for oiling, turbine oils with viscosity from 38 cst to 90 cst are
recommended.
HYDRULIC ITEMS

SINGLE SOLENOID SPRING OFFSET DIRECTIONAL CONTROL VALVE

This valve is used to control the direction of flow with the help of valve
spool. A cylindrical spool moves back and forth in machine bore and
in valve body. Cored or machined passages from the port
connections in the valve body are interconnected through annular
grooves (undercuts) in the spool or blocked by spool lands.

The valve spool is shifted by energizing a solenoid at one end of the


spool. When the solenoid is de-energized the spring at the opposite
end of the spool returns the spool to its original position. This is a two
position valve and a spring returns the valve to one extreme position.
That’s why the valve is called spring offset.

These direct operated solenoids are kept in DC4 series by Vickers.


Ports connections are made by means of sulphate permitting any easy
removal of valve body for service and replacement. The solenoid is
self contained and self controlled push type unit which bolts to the
end of the valve body. These valves are rated in the 10-20 gpm range.

Graphical symbol for valve

Since there are two operating position and 4 connections this is also
known as 2/4 directional valve.

A schematic representation is shown below:


DOUBLE SOLENOID SPRING CENTERED DIRECTIONAL
CONTROL VALVE
In this type of valve there are three positions of valve spool. Control
spring acting on the both ends of the spool keeps it to the central
position when both solenoids are energized. To hold on extreme
position one solenoid should be continuously energized.

These valves are also kept in DG4 series by Vickers. The schematic
representation by this valve is shown in figure below:
And its graphical symbol is:

The valve in the figure shown above is in central position. In this


position the central port is closed and port A and B are open to tank.

Since there are 3 positions and four connections it is also called ¾


directional valve.

In all solenoid electric energy supplied to the coil create magnetic


field by virtue phenomena of electromagnetic induction, which
consequently draws armature into the coil. The armature motion in
turns push rod or can be seen as transmitted via push rod which in
turns moves the spool.

PRESSURE OPERATED CHECK MODULE

These modules contain a check valve in both cylinder portion check


valve allows free flow of oil in one direction. They are arranged for
free flow out of the directional valve.

For return flow one check can be unseated by a common striker


piston, mounted co-axially between two checks. This happens when
internal pressure on one side is sufficient to cause the striker piston to
open the check valve on the other side. At neutral position,
compression spring will seat the check and machine actuator will be
held stationary.

Within each poppet piston, is a small decompression poppet which


opens before the main check valve.
NON PRESSURE COMPENSATED FLOW CONTROL VALVE
(WITH CHECK VALVE)
Flow control valves are used to regulate the speed of actuator by
controlling the flow of oil from the pump. There are three basic
methods of applying volume control valve in a circuit

a) Meter-in

b) Meter-out

c) Bleed-off

In meter-in operation, the flow control valve is placed between the


pump and the actuator. In meter-out it is located in the tank line. In
bleed-off arrangement the flow control valve is kept in the pressure
line and diverts excess flow to the tank, thus permitting only require
flow pass through actuator.

Meter-out control finds advantage over the others in the NC


machines. If the load turns to “run away” it will it will regulate
actuator speed because it restricts exhaust flow from actuator. Other
advantage is that being in a low pressure line losses are less.

A check valve is incorporated for free flow in reverse direction.

The figure above demonstrates the meter-out flow control……


Graphical symbol along with the internal construction of non-compensated flow
control valve.

NON-COMPENSATED DUAL CONSTRUCTION FLOW


CONTROL VALVE

It regulates flow rate between DG 4 (4 way valve) and hydraulic


actuator.

Graphical representation of this valve is shown in figure….


Dual valve construction permits free flow to both actuator port and
adjustable independent flow regulation in each return line from
actuator.

PRESSURE AND TEMP. COMPENSATED FLOW CONTROL


VALVE
Since the flow through an orifice is essentially proportional to the
square root of the pressure drop∆p across it. This means that any
appreciable change in the work load would affect the speed.

To overcome this problem one is made of pressure compensation


device. A hydrostatic is utilized to maintain a constant pressure drop
across an adjustable throttle.

Since flow through a pressure compensated flow control valve is


subject to change with variation in oil temperature, so a temperature
compensating rod which lengthens when hot and contracts when cold
is incorporated in valve. The throttle is simpler plunger that is moved
in and out of the control port. The compensating rod is installed
between the throttle and its adjuster. Viscosity of oil decreases with
temperature tending to flow freely, but the throttle opening is also
reduced with the help of compensating rod.

A reverse free-flow check valve is also included in the valve. A


schematic representation and internal construction is shown in the
given figure…..
PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE

The pressure relief valve limits pressure in the system to a preset


maximum by diverting some or all of the pump’s output to tank when
the pressure setting is reached. It is a infinite positioning valve i.e. the
valve can assume various position between fully closed and fully
open, depending on flow rate and pressure differential.

It consists of a ball held seated in the valve body by a heavy spring.


When pressure of inlet is insufficient to overcome the force of spring,
the valve remaining closed. Then the preset pressure is reached, the
ball is forced off its seat and allows throw out the outlet to tank for as
long as pressure is maintained. An adjusting screw is provided to
vary the spring force. Thus the valve can be set to open at any
pressure within its specified range. The valve is shown in the given
figure…
PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE

Pressure reducing valves are normally open pressure controls used


to maintain reduced pressure in certain application. They are
actuated by pressure sensed in the branch circuit and tend to close as
it reaches the valve setting, thus preventing further build up.

It is self operated type valve. The spring force on one side is opposed
by a pressure on the other side. Rising system pressure acts against
the spring to close the flow path. The leakage oil is internally vented
to tank with all valves. If the valve closes completely, leakage past
could cause pressure to build up in the branch circuit, so a continuous
bleed to tank is permitted to keep it slightly open, and prevent
downstream pressure from rising above the valve setting. A drain
passage is provided to return this leakage flow to tank.
A direct acting pressure reducing valve is shown in the above figure...

HYDRAULIC MOTOR

Hydraulic motor converts hydraulic energy (pressure * oil flow) into


mechanical energy (torque * speed). Hydraulic motors are of various
designs. One type is gear motor. This consists of following main
components:

1. Gear wheel set

2. Commutator valve with shaft

3. Drive

4. Housing
The gear wheel set has an outer ring which is built together with the
housing with (n+1) internal teeth and an internal rotor with external
teeth. The teeth of the ring and rotor are meshing together. The rotor
has one tooth less then the ring, and this result in the so-called gear
wheel spaces between the ring and rotor. One half of these spaces
are connected to the delivery side of motor. A simpler rotary flow
divider valve guides the liquid in such a way that the delivery and
return spaces rotate synchronously with the rotor. The drive forms the
mechanical connection between the commutator valve and the rotor.

The rotor movement is the combination of rotation and translation.


The drives have splines at either end and allow only rotary
movement.

Pressure required in hydraulic motor depends on the torque load and


displacement. A large displacement motor will develop a given
torque with less pressure than a smaller unit.

CYCLINDER

Cylinder is a linear actuator i.e. output of a cylinder is straight line


motion. It is classified as single or double acting. Single acting
cylinder has only one fluid chamber and exerts pressure in only one
direction. It is mounted vertically and retracts by the force of gravity.
Head counterbalanced cylinders are of this type.
A cylinder consists of a barrel, a piston and rod, end cops and seals.
Barrel is seamless steel tubing and piston is made of C.I. or steel.
These cylinders also have provision for adjustable cushioning at both
ends for smooth beginning and end of the stroke.
PRESSURE SWITCH

Pressure switches are used to make or break electrical circuits at


selected pressures to actuate solenoid operated valves or other
devices. They can be used to provide ON/OFF signal which can be
fed into an electronic control system.

Movement of piston under pressure against a spring operates a micro


switch. The spring is of corrugated diaphragm type. A restrictor is
usually fitted in the pressure inlet to reduce the effect on the switch of
any hydraulic shock loading in the system.

The pressure setting of the switch can be adjusted by turning an


adjusting nut. A switching differential is provided in pressure switch.
It means that switch will operate at certain pressure and above when
pressure is being raised, but when pressure falls it will not operate at
certain pressure lower than operating pressure. Difference is called
switching differential and is essential to avoid tripping of machine
frequently.

GENERAL INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRICAL AND


ELECTRONICS ITEMS
1. Proximity Switches

Proximity switches are solid state switching device which required no


physical contact to actuate them. These are use for control and
positioning signals because of long life, high switching speed, no
touch, zero operation force, wear and maintenance free operation,
bounce free signal and reliable switching under extreme conditions.
It comprises of three principle parts

i) Oscillator
ii) Trigger stage and

iii)Amplifier stage

To obtain a switching signal at given voltage and temperature,


sensing distance (Sn) is the main factor. Sensing distance is the
maximum distance between the target and the sensing face. Sensing
face is the surface from which the electromagnetic field radiates.

Sn depends upon material, thickness and area of target.

Target diameter = Oscillator Unit Diameter


2. Limit Switch

Limit switches are used to make or break control circuit when


mechanically actuated by a moving member. Moving member might
be a dog mounted on the moving component, as in the case of travel
or over travel limit switches, or may be of plunger actuated type as in
case of filter clogged limit switch. The limit switch type may be of
normally open type (NO) which will close when switch is actuated or
normally close type (NC) which will actuated.
3. Circuit Breaker

A device designed to open and close by non automatic means and to


open the circuit automatically on the predetermined overload of
current, when properly, applied within its rating. Two types are there:

1) Thermal

2) Hydraulic

Thermal circuit breakers responds only to temperature change in the


bimetallic element. Heat is generated in the element because of i2r
losses. The element bends or deformed to open the contacts and
unlatch the mechanism. Mainly used MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker)
offer dual protection i.e., protection against overload and short
circuit.

MCBs are preferred over fuses as it disconnects supply


instantaneously, and requires seldom replacement.
Some of the technical features of Circuit Breakers are:

 Long mechanical and electrical operational life

 High breaking capacity

 Overload tripping through accurately


calibrated bimetal strip.

 Short circuit tripping through magnetic coil.

Circuit breakers gives protection to the equipments such as motors,


transformers, air conditioners, refrigerators, geysers, mixers etc. and
cables/wires in electrical distribution system.

4. Overload Relays

It can be defined as the device which is operative by variation in the


conditions of one electrical circuit to affect another device in same or
another electric circuit. Relays provides overload protection over
control circuits when used in conjugation with contactors and other
motor control equipments, they provide accurate and reliable control
and protection under overload condition.
5. Contactors

Device used for repeatedly establishing and interrupting an electric


power circuit. The contactors are suitable for controlling electrical
circuit of all kinds e.g. capacitor, lighting, heating, switching A.C.
circuit as well D.C. circuits Also suitable for use in control panel for
machine tools, motor control centers and other applications where
high frequency requirement is must.

Contactors should have following design features:

 Long Life: Bounce free contact system contributes to long


contact life.

 Modern techniques of arc quenching: In case of A.C. contactor,


double breaking contact divide the arc into two. For contactors
of higher size, deionization chamber split the arcs into
numerous short arcs.
 Contactors are designs for very high frequency operation

 Compact Size

 Installation: Some contactors can be mount in any position and


some with maximum inclination, from vertical surface, of 22 ½
degrees.

 Auxiliary Contact: For control a interlocking purposes,


contactors can be provided with a number of auxiliary contacts.

6. Fuses

A device used for protection of equipments. A wide range of fuses is


available for protection of transformer, cables, capacitors and motors
for application in Air or Oil.

HRC fuses are used for the interruption of fault current in indoor and
outdoor high voltage system and also protection of distribution power
equipment.

7. Pressure Switch

The function of pressure switch is to break or make the control circuit


whenever the pressure actuates the switch contacts. The switch
contacts may be normally open type which closes on increasing
pressure or of normally close type which open on increasing
pressure. Pressure switches use single pole double throw (SPDT)
micro switches as switching element.

These switches are use with water, oil, air, nitrogen, inert gases,
steam, mineral oil and natural gas etc.
8. Introduction to NC

Automation has been associated with advancement in technology.


The problem of automation of small lot production have been
overcome by numerical control (NC) machine tools have great extent.
NUMERICAL CONTROL (NC) is defines as “A system in which
actions are controlled by direct insertion of numerical data at some
point. The system must automatically interpret at least some portion of
this data.”

CNC

In CNC system, a dedicated computer is used to perform all the basis


NC functions as per the control program also called executive
program stored in the memory of the computer. It is this executive
program, which makes it flexible/soft wired. Unlike NC systems,
machine control data comes directly from the computer memory.
Because of the memory availability user can store part programs also
in computer. The capability to edit this part program is a real
advantage to the part programmer right at the machine station.
Additional features such as tape punching option, user oriented sub
routine programs etc are also possible on CNC.

9. Feedback device

CNC system requires a measuring device and measurement can be


done with feedback system. Basically feedback allows the control
system to compare the machine’s actual position with command
valve. The result of this comparison provides the ability of velocity
and position control. Encoders, resolver or inductosyn are used as
feedback devices.
Encoders

Incremental rotary encoder is most commonly used feedback device.


The rotary encoder is a shaft-driven device delivering electrical
pulses at its output terminal. The pulse frequency is directly
proportional to shaft speed. Encoder consists of glass disc marked
with a precise circular pattern of alternate clear and opaque segments
on its periphery. The disc is mounted on the shaft. A fixed source of
light is on one side and a photo cell is placed on other side of the disc.
As disc rotates, light is permitted to fall on photo cell, to produce the
output signal which is approximately sinusoidal. Internal or external
amplifier is used to amplify the photocell output to a level suitable for
feeding logic circuits. Amplified signal is fed to a circuit which
converts the signal to a proper square wave with suitable rise and fall
times. To sense direction of rotation a two photocell system is used.
Photocell is arranged so that output signals have 900 shifts to each
other. External logic circuitry is used to determine the direction of
rotation.
10. Drives

Drives refer to the system package compared to servo amplifier and


servo motor.
10.1 Spindle drives

The spindle drives on modern NC machines is DC/AC drive. It is used


in combination with three or four step gear boxes to get full power in
the entire cutting speed range. These drives are controlled by
SCR/Transistor controllers.
10.2 Axes Drive

All axes are driven by DC/AC servo drives controlled by


SCR/transistors through pre-loaded balls screw and nuts. Vertical
slides are normally equipped with hydraulic counter balance to
provide smooth servo action. As cent percent counter balance will not
always be possible, spring set disc brake is used on servo motor to
hold the position of the vertical slide during shut down of machine.
10.3 D.C Motor

A D.C. motor can be thought of made up of two parts:

1) A stationary field either of permanent magnet or electromagnet

2) An armature which is allowed to rotate.

The armature consists of series of coils which are connected to


motor’s commutator and brushes. The commutator serves to switch
the power to successive coils as the armature rotates so that magnetic
armature poles remain in the same position relative to the field poles.
As the armature rotates in the magnetic fields the motion of its
conductor generates a voltage. This is true whether motor is
delivering the power or driven by some external means.
10.4 D.C. Drive

D.C. drive controls motor speed through control of armature current


by varying DC voltage applied to the motor. This is accompanied by
controlling the point on AC input sine wave at which an SCR begins to
conduct.

Block Diagram description of DC drive

From diagram, speed, integrators regulator motor speed by summing


both velocity reference and tachometer signals. An error signal
between reference and feedback is then amplified and compensated
for optimum controller response. Current regulator regulates the
armature current by outputting a voltage signal to both the forward
and reverse three phase firing circuits. This is accomplished by
summing the current reference signal from output of the speed
integrator with the current feedback signal from the motor armature.
The resultant error signal is amplified and compensated for the
electrical parameters of the motor.

Forward and reverse three phase firing circuit control SCR gating.
The SCR gate pulse is phase is pulse shifted and synchronized relative
to the AC line so that gated SCR produces a variable output voltage
from the power bridge.

The regenerative power bridge converts three phase AC power to a


controlled DC voltage capable of powering the motor armature. It’s
out is fully controlled by forward and reverse three phase firing
circuits.

Forward and reverse three phase synchronizers controls the time


during the AC cycle when the forward and reverse three phase firing
circuits can turn –ON an SCR.

Current limiter restricts limits the level of armature current reference.


The level of restriction generally depends upon motor speed.

10.5 A.C Drives

Block Diagram description of AC drive

DC thyristor Leonard control system driven by the DC motor is


essential to perform the high precision-speed or torque control
requiring quick response. Performance of AC variable drive system
could not be equal to the Leonard system. But, it is necessary to
maintain the for DC motors, because they have brushes and
commutator. AC variable speed drive system consists of squirrel cage
induction motors and inverters are maintenance free and easy
operation. Recently high performance AC drive system which is
frequency control on basis of vectrol was developed in order to
realize the same quick response and high-precision speed control as
Leonard System.

PRINCIPLE OF TORQUE GENERATION


The mechanism of torque generation is the same in the D.C. motor
and squirrel cage induction motors. Excellency of performance of the
D.C. motor (separately-excited and shunt winding type) is due to the
fact that magnetic flux and armature current are supplied separately,
that the armature current is held always in such a relation as to be
perpendicular to flux by a commutator and brushes and also that
torque and armature current are in proportion to each other under the
condition of constant magnetic flux at any moment.

However, in squirrel cage motor, primary current is only supplied to


the stator winding from power supply. The torque is produced by
magnetic flux caused by this and torque current component
(corresponding to armature current of D.C. motor). Although the
mechanism of torque generation is stable under the steady state
condition, the induction motor cannot quickly obtained the stable
response at the moment that load or reference value are suddenly
changed, that is, under the transient condition.

10.6 Advantages of brushless A.C. motor over D.C. motor

 No commutator, so maintenance easier, electronic inverter


serves the purpose of commutator.

 Low inertia due to high flux permanent magnets.

 Wear and tear less.

 A.C. motor weights 35% to 65% less than D.C. motors are 20%
to 30% shorter and 10% to 20% smaller in diameter.
 Information is stored in digital form as drive is micro-processor
based, so better control over tuning the drive.

 Inside fixed encoders for both position as well as speed


feedback signal.

 Size of transformer is reduced as power supplied required is


line voltage.

 High peak/continuous ratio. High torque at full speed.

 High rate of speed and acceleration.

Disadvantages

1) A.C. induction motors generally are not suitable for precise motor
control. A tendency to cog at lower speeds is limiting factor.

2) Torque is not directly proportional to a current, a requirement for


good dynamic performance.

VARIOUS FUNCTIOS OF CNC


1) Axes position and velocity control
2) Spindle speed

3) Miscellaneous functions.
1.1 Various functional codes

1) Preparatory function: these are commands which prepare


the machine for different modes of movements like position
countering, thread cutting etc.
2) Dimensional Data: Movement of machine tool slides in one
or more axes is determined by dimensional data entered in
the program.

3) Miscellaneous Function: Some of the important


miscellaneous function which worth to be considered here
are coolant on or off, Spindle CW or CCW, program stop
etc.

4) Speed Function(S): this function pertains to speed of


spindle.

5) Feed Function (F): It pertains to feed rates of the slides.

6) Tool Function (T): this function pertains to the selection of


required tool for the particular operation.

CODES USED IN CNC PROGRAMS


G-code is the name of any word in a CNC program that begins with
the letter G and generally is a code telling machine tool what type of
action to perform. Such as: Rapid Move etc.

Controlled feed move in straight line or are series of controlled feed


moves that would result in whole being bored, a work piece cut
(routed) to a specific dimension, or a decorative profile shape added
to edge of work piece.

There are other codes; the type codes can be thought of registers in
the computer

X absolute position

Y absolute position

Z absolute position

A position (rotary around X)

B position (rotary around Y)


C position (rotary around Z)
U Relative parallel axis to X

V Relative parallel axis to Y

W Relative parallel axis to Z

M code (another “action” register or machine code (*))

(Otherwise refers to as miscellaneous function)

F feed rate

S spindle speed

N line number

R arc radius

P dwell time

T tool selection

I arc data X axis

J arc data Y axis

J arc data Z axis

D cutter diameter

H tool length offset.

(*)M codes control the overall machine, causing it to stop, start, turn
on coolant, etc., whereas other code pertain to the path traversed by
cutting tool may use same code to perform different functions; even
machines that use the same CNC control.

ADVANTAGES OF CNC MACHINES


1. Productivity
Since cutting tool is brought to its machining position much more
efficiently than it was done manually by the machine operator, NC
machine is spending much more time per shift cutting than in past.
Conventional machines very seldom remove metal for more than 15%
of total available time under normal batch production conditions.
Whereas CNC machine tools should be capable of removing metal for
between 50% and 75% of available time. When working on medium
batch production, CNC machining has around 4 to 1 productivity
advantage over conventional machine. The actual productivity
advantage may vary from batch to batch depending upon the
complexity of components to be produced and is normally
proportional to the number of conventional operation required to
produce the components.
2. Flexibility in design and production

Machine can switch over to different job as set up times are low and
sudden changes in sales requirement are much more easily catered
for. This enables the formulation of more aggressive marketing plans.
The use of CNC machines also give designers freedom to design
components which, by conventional means, are often impossible to
produce. Change of design can also be easily incorporated as it
means change of tape.

3. Inspection

High position accuracies and repeatability are inherent features of


CNC machines and reduce inspection time considerably.

Normally a 100% inspection of the first component produced by a


new tape is all that is necessary to prove the tape and tooling.
Subsequently it is required to have only sample inspection. In process
gauging and inspection is also provided on modern CNC machines.

4. Floor space

One CNC machine can replace five to six conventional machines.


Thus manufacturing activities of a company can be expanded without
increasing the floor area proportionately.

5. Inventory
By using CNC machine, procurement sizes and batch sizes can be
reduced because of shorter lead time’s .This results in substantial
saving. Lead time is time taken to progress a batch of component
through a batch of production shop and is proportional to number of
operation required by conventional methods. For example a
component which requires 112 set ups by conventional methods may
requires only 1 or 2 set ups in CNC machining center reducing total
product flow times.
6. Material Handling

Handling of component from machine to machine which is necessary


on conventional machine is significantly reduced on CNC machine, as
all the operations are performed on one machine. This obviously
reduces labor cost.

7. Tooling

This ability to complete machine part in a single setup means that


fewer and simpler fixtures are required, which in turns requires
less storage space and maintenance. The simpler a fixture is, the
less expensive is to manufacture it.

8. Operator’s Skill

Dependence on skilled labor can be dispensed with. The accuracy


of part produced with CNC machines machine depend upon
accuracy and ability of machine and tape – and not on individual
operator.

9. Scrap and Rework

Drastic reduction in scrap is achieved because of the inherent


accuracy and repeatability of CNC machine.
10. Costing

Time required to produce a component is a function of machining


cycle of CNC machines and is not influenced by operator’s
efficiency or variation in labor’s rate, a great stability of prices can
often be achieved throughout the life cycle of the respective
product. Also cost accounting becomes very precise.

11. Better Management Information and Control

With various advantages of CNC machines, decisions effecting unit


cost, delivery and quality are firmly placed in the hands of
management and not of the machine operator.
CONCLUSIONS
It is true that CNC machine costs more to install initially. But higher
initial cost is set off by the direct and indirect gains resulting from
various advantages of CNC machines. In most cases, careful techno-
economic evaluation of a given manufacturing situation will clearly
bring out that unit cost of production is definitely less tools with that of
so called conventional machines.

To conclude numeric control is the most sophisticated form of


automatic control of machine tool. It has high degree of precision and
reliability. The control system has undergone several stage of
development.

Some of the special features offered by CNC machine manufacture


are:

 Thermal stabilization
 Axis calibration
 Lost machine compensation
With the various above qualities of CNC machine there are numerous
advantages. They are

 High accuracy
 High reliability
 Less scrap and network
 Better machine utilization
 Computer control of manufacture capability of integration into
distribution numeric control (DNC) etc.
The programs written for CNC are easy to write and understand.
These programs use either G-cod or M-code that runs the program.
The codes are simple to understand.

No wonder CNC machines tools are becoming more and more


popular day by day in modern industries. In longer run CNC machine
pays for itself with such outstanding qualities.
