Motor manufacturers worldwide have embraced the utilization of large-tonnage high-speed presses equipped with multi-station progressive dies for producing motor stators and rotors. This adoption has led to significant reductions in production costs and substantial improvements in the final product’s quality and efficiency.
Introducing the Gear Feeding Machine: Addressing Challenges in High-Speed Production
Despite the benefits of this high-speed, high-precision production mode, it imposes new demands on accompanying feeding machines. These machines must now meet requirements for high speed, high precision, and easy step adjustment. Currently, mainstream air feeding machines, roller feeding machines, and NC servo feeding machines each have their limitations, such as imprecise operation for air feeding machines, cumbersome step adjustment for roller feeding machines, and inadequate speed for NC servo feeding machines. As a response to these challenges, a new type of feeding machine known as the gear feeding machine has emerged in the stamping industry.
The Advantages of Gear Feeding Machines
The gear feeding machine, also referred to as the cam feeding machine, is a specialized feeding device designed for motor stators and rotors. This machine is powered by the press’s output shaft and controls the feeding step through gear changes, eliminating the need for additional adjustments. Furthermore, all transmission components have intermittent rotation, enabling frequent starts and stops. The relaxing action is rapidly achieved through an eccentric wheel, ensuring precise and swift relaxation. With such features, the gear feeding machine perfectly meets the requirements for high speed, high precision, and easy step adjustment in motor stator and rotor production.
Optimized Stamping Production Line
In actual stator and rotor stamping processes, the gear feeding machine needs to be complemented by suitable equipment for material uncoiling and leveling. An excellent combination consists of a passive double-head material rack, an S-type leveling machine, and the gear feeding machine.
- Passive Double-Head Material Rack: This rack lacks its own power and is pulled by the subsequent leveling machine for unwinding. Its notable features include high load capacity, rapid and stable unwinding, and quick and convenient material changes.
- S-Type Leveling Machine: This machine uses an S-shaped guide system with two sets of photoelectric sensors controlling the discharge. Unlike traditional leveling machines with an output speed of 16m/min, the S-type leveling machine achieves a remarkable output speed of up to 60m/min.
The combination of these three components results in a synchronized stamping production line, providing an optimized solution for the current production of motor stators and rotors.
In conclusion, the gear feeding machine brings forth significant advancements in the production of motor stators and rotors. Its ability to meet the demands for high speed, high precision, and easy step adjustment sets it apart from other feeding machines in the market. When integrated into a well-designed production line with suitable equipment, the gear feeding machine optimizes the overall stamping process, enhancing efficiency, and ensuring top-quality motor stators and rotors. Embracing this technology will undoubtedly allow manufacturers to stay ahead in the competitive market by producing exceptional products at reduced costs.
