Pneumatic Tailstock

Pneumatic tailstock is a kind of tailstock whose main function is to fix long work pieces on the machine tool for processing. Turning machines are also called lathes, and they may be the oldest machine tool design since human civilization. A lathe is a machine tool that rotates a work piece on a rotating axis to perform various machining operations, such as cutting, knurling, sanding, deformation, 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 can be divided into two main types according to the way the work piece is clamped.

Turning Phases

They are vertical lathes and horizontal lathes. Electrical and mechanical components and accessories is a huge market. In China and Taiwan, the export share is very large, not less than the volume of machine tools, and has made a huge contribution to the economy. The list of electrical and mechanical components of machine tools is very large, such as 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.

Together with these components assembled, manufacturers of turning machines are able to compose a machine tool. Many of Taiwan's machine tool components and parts are produced by different professional suppliers in different locations and factories, so as to achieve the best economies of scale for machine tool suppliers and customers. Through such cooperation, component suppliers do not need to invest in other component products, reducing profits, because excess product lines must have additional production lines and warehouses.


Pneumatics and Electric Processing

Using air compressors, pneumatic equipment can work well in the production line, thereby helping manufacturers to achieve manufacturing goals, and electrical control mechanisms can make their operations smoother. At present, electrical and mechanical components and parts is a huge market. In China and Taiwan, the export volume accounts for a large share, not less than that of machine tools, and has made a huge contribution to the economy.

The list of machine tool electrical and mechanical components is very large, such as 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.

These components are used in turning machine, grinding machines, milling machines, boring machines, drilling machines, honing machine, lapping machines, machining centers, and many other cutting based machine tools. Same components have the same design purpose, but the usage and composition may be different. For example, although cutting tools have the same purpose for cutting, there are still differences between the tools used in milling machines and turning and boring machines. Based on different processing methods, the tool may have a variety of rotation and torque conditions and speeds.  


Compared to Hydraulic System

Similar to pneumatic systems, hydraulic mechanisms are also fluid mechanisms. In the mechanical industry, hydraulics is a common technology and is widely used in engineering, chemistry, and other sciences involving mechanical properties and the use of liquid substances.

Hydraulics is the liquid counterpart of pneumatics, and its operation is actually similar to fluid mechanics. Fluid mechanics provides a theoretical basis for hydraulics and pneumatics, the former focuses on the use of fluid properties for application engineering. In fluid power applications, it applies the hydraulic pressure generated by pressurized liquid to power generation, control and transmission.

In fact, the topic of hydraulics covers some parts of science subjects and most engineering modules across fields, including concepts such as valve construction, pipe flow, dam design, pump production, fluidics, and fluid control circuitry. Hydraulics can be applied to the mechanical field as a drive of mechanical.
