Rotary Tailstock

In the turning machine industry, the rotary tailstock is a tailstock whose main function is to firmly clamp the long work pieces on the turning machines. Turning machines are also called lathe machines. This type of machine tools may be considered the oldest machine tool model since human civilization.
 
In fact, 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 applying tools 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 categories.

Working Direction and Clamping Mechanism

These classifications are vertical lathe machines and horizontal lathe machines. The electrical and mechanical components and parts required for turning machine are a huge market. In China and Taiwan, their exports account for a large share, not less than the exports of machine tools, and they make a great contribution to the overall 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, and many other components and accessories.

Together with these assembled parts, manufacturers of turning machines can build a machine tool. Many of Taiwan's machine tool parts are produced in different locations and factories by different professional suppliers, thus realizing economies of scale for machine tool suppliers and customers. Through this kind of cooperation, component manufacturers do not need to invest in other component products. Excess investment often results in factory losses since for each new product, additional production lines and warehouses must be set up.


Driving Power of components

Machine tool components can be activated in many ways. With the help of air compressors, pneumatic equipment can work well in the production line, thereby helping manufacturers to achieve manufacturing goals, and the application of electrical control mechanisms can make the operation smoother. Nowadays, electrical and mechanical components and parts are a huge market. In China and Taiwan, its export volume accounts for no less than the figure of machine tools, making a huge contribution to the economy and the market.

The inventory of machine tool electrical and mechanical components are a very large list, 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, 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. The design concepts between these components are the same.


Instances and Applications

For example, although various cutting tools have the same function and purpose, the tools of milling machine are different from those of turning and boring machines. They are based on different processing methods and will have a variety of rotation and torque conditions and speeds. Similar to pneumatic systems, hydraulic mechanisms are a type of fluid mechanism. In the machinery industry, hydraulics is a commonly used technology, and this technology has been widely used in engineering, chemistry, and other sciences involving mechanical properties and the use of liquid substances. Hydraulic is the liquid form of pneumatics, which is actually similar to fluid mechanics in the industry.

Fluid mechanics provides a theoretical basis for hydraulic and pneumatic mechanisms. The former focuses on application engineering using the characteristics of fluids. Regarding fluid power applications, it uses hydraulic pressure generated by pressurized liquid for power generation, control and transmission. In fact, hydraulic topics cover 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. Hydraulic is a new concept, which can be used for motion drive in machinery.
