In the realm of automated feeding processes for circular blank production, the zigzag NC feeding machine stands out as a game-changer. This innovative machine introduces lateral oscillation to the feeding mechanism, creating a zigzag motion that strategically optimizes the placement of circular blanks. The result? A substantial improvement in material utilization that can revolutionize your production process.

Unveiling the Transformative Power: X-Y Orthogonal Coordinates

To achieve efficient blanking and stamping, we transform the unidirectional feed of the feeding mechanism into X-Y orthogonal coordinates. This transformation sets the stage for producing multiple interconnected circular blanks. Through the implementation of a mathematical model and equations, where the NC feeding machine propels material along the X-axis and the oscillating platform imparts lateral swinging along the Y-axis, we achieve this transformation with precision. The circular blank’s radius, denoted as ‘r’, becomes the key player in this computational nesting process.

Specialized Processing Methods for Optimal Nesting Outcomes

Two bespoke processing methods, known as the S-type and M-type, have been meticulously designed to ensure optimal nesting outcomes. Let’s delve into the procedural steps for each method:

S-Type Circular Blank Processing Method

  1. Initial Blank Drop: Execute reliable processing for the initial circular blank drop, maneuvering the material under the punch die using the NC feeding machine and the oscillating platform. This establishes a reliable circular blank near the material edge on side A, with coordinates set at (0,0).
  2. Incremental Processing: Repeat the reliable circular blank processing, maintaining the X-axis coordinate while incrementing the Y-coordinate by ≥2r until production extends to the opposite edge on side B.
  3. Second Row Processing: Conduct the processing of the second row of circular blanks by advancing the material on the X-axis by ≥r and decreasing the Y-axis distance by ≥r using the NC feeding machine and the oscillating platform.
  4. Continued Processing: Continue processing the second row of circular blanks, maintaining the X-axis coordinate while decrementing the Y-coordinate by ≥2r until production reaches the edge on side A.
  5. Iteration: Iterate through steps a, b, c, and d until the circular blank processing is completed.

M-Type Circular Blank Processing Method

  1. Initial Blank Drop: Perform reliable processing for the initial circular blank drop, guiding the material under the punch die to produce a reliable circular blank near the edge on side A, with coordinates set at (0,0).
  2. Rear-Side Processing: Process the rear-side circular blank, incrementing the X-axis coordinate relative to the preceding circular blank by △X (≥r) and the Y-axis coordinate by △Y (≥r) using the punch die.
  3. Front-Side Processing: Process the front-side circular blank, decrementing the X-axis coordinate relative to the preceding circular blank by △X and incrementing the Y-axis coordinate by △Y using the punch die.
  4. Repetition: Repeat steps b and c until processing reaches the edge on side B.
  5. Completion: Repeat steps b and c until circular blank processing is completed.
