Hydraulic Tailstock

Hydraulic tailstock is one type of tailstocks, which is mainly used to clamp and stabilize the long work piece on the turning machines. Turning machines are also called lathes, which may be the oldest machine tool design since human civilization.  
 
Lathe is a machine tool that rotates a work piece on a rotating axis to perform various machining operations, such as cutting, knurling, sanding, deforming, facing and turning. These machining are performed by tools applied to the work piece to create objects that are symmetrical to the axis driven by the spindle. Generally, turning machines are divided into two categories, depending on the way the lathe machines clamp the work piece.

Hydraulic and Pneumatic Mechanism

In addition to the hydraulic tailstock, there are also pneumatic tailstocks, which are like various hydraulic and pneumatic products competing in the market. This situation also occurs in the industry of components for lathe machine. When it comes to the classification of lathe types, there are two structures, the first is vertical, and the second is horizontal. They are vertical lathes and horizontal lathes.

Electrical and mechanical components and parts a huge market, with a large export share in China and Taiwan, no less than that of machine tools, making a huge contribution to the economy. The list of electrical and mechanical components of machine tools is very large, which includes sensors, casted parts, spindles, motors, servo equipment, saddle, locknut, shells, hydraulic cylinders, chucks, claw, precision screws, tailstock, tools and holders, power turret, chip conveyor, belt unit, safety cover, controller, handle, display screen, etc.


Assembly Line & Processing

By assembling these components together in the production line, manufacturers of turning machines are able to compose a machine tool with required specifications. Many of Taiwan's machine tool parts are produced in different locations and factories by different professional suppliers, thereby achieving the best economies of scale for machine tool suppliers and customers. Through this partnership, component suppliers do not need to invest in other component products, dragging down the profits of the entire factory.


Fluid Mechanism and Electric Processing

With the aid of fluid mechanisms such as air compressors, pneumatic equipment can work well in the factory, thereby helping manufacturers achieve their goals, and the application of electrical control mechanisms will make the work more accurate. Nowadays, electrical and mechanical components and parts are a huge market. In China and Taiwan, exports account for a large share, no less than figures of machine tool, making great contributions to the economy and society.


Inventory

When it comes to machine tool inventory, electrical and mechanical components are a very large category in this field. They include sensors, casted parts, spindles, motors, servo equipment, saddle, locknut, shells, hydraulic cylinders, chucks, claw, precision screws, tailstock, tools and holders, power turret, chip conveyor, belt unit, safety cover, controller, handle, display screen, just to name a few. Besides the turning machine, there are also grinding machines, milling machines, boring machines, drilling machines, honing machine, lapping machines, machining centers, and many other cutting based machine tools.

However, their composition is not exactly the same. For example, although cutting tools have the same function and purpose, the tools used in milling machines may be different from turning and boring machines. They are based on different processing methods and have a variety of rotation and torque conditions and speeds. Similar to pneumatic system, hydraulic mechanism is also a kind of fluid mechanisms. In the mechanical industry, hydraulics is a commonly used technology, and this technology has been widely used in engineering, chemistry, and sciences involving mechanical properties and liquid substances.


Hydraulic Basis

In mechanical principles, hydraulics is a liquid application of pneumatics, and the two are actually similar to fluid mechanics. Fluid mechanics provides a theoretical basis for hydraulics and pneumatics. The former focuses on the use of fluid characteristics for application engineering. Regarding fluid power applications, it uses hydraulic force generated by pressurized liquid for power generation, control and transmission.

In fact, the topic of hydraulics covers scientific and cross field engineering modules, as well as concepts such as valve construction, pipe flow, dam design, pump production, fluidics, fluid control circuitry, etc. In terms of hydraulic applications, machinery is a new idea, which can achieve the purpose of driving in the mechanical process with some designs.
