What should I pay attention to when using the slotting machine

The slotting machine is actually a vertical planer, which belongs to the same category as the bullhead planer in terms of structure. The linear reciprocating motion of the inserting knife in the vertical direction with the ram is the main motion, and the intermittent motion of the workpiece in the longitudinal, transverse and circumferential directions is the feed motion.

The slotting machine is used for slotting planes, forming surfaces and keyways, etc., and can insert work objects such as molds with an inclination within 10°. It is suitable for single or small batch production enterprises. The worktable of the slotting machine has three different directions of feed (longitudinal, horizontal and rotary), so after the work piece is clamped once, several surfaces can be processed on this machine tool.

So what do we need to pay attention to during the processing, there are a total of the following points:

The first, conscientiously implement the following general regulations on slotting machines

1. Correctly select the length of the arbor according to the processing position of the workpiece, and adjust the stroke of the plug to prevent collision.

2. When loading and unloading heavier fixtures, you must handle them gently to prevent damage to the work surface.

3. The vertical, horizontal, and circumferential automatic feeding of the worktable is not allowed to be used in combination of the three items, and only single-item feeding is allowed.

4. Quick tool setting is not allowed during work.

The second, conscientiously implement the following special regulations concerning slotting machines:

1) Mechanical slotting machine:
1. Before dry running test run or after adjusting the stroke of the ram (plug), use the hand to turn the flywheel to check whether the ram reciprocating motion is good and whether the ram stroke meets the requirements. After confirming that it is normal, the machine tool can be started for trial run or formal work.

2. When the ram is running, it is not allowed to adjust the stroke and speed of the ram.

3. After working, lift the plug to the head and move the rotary table to the middle position of the guide rail.

2) Hydraulic slotting machine:
1. When the ram is running, the stroke of the ram is not allowed to be adjusted.

2. After working, put the ram plug to the bottom end.

The third, safety regulations

1. The wrench used must match the nut, and the force must be appropriate to prevent slipping and bumping.

2. The reference surface must be selected for clamping the workpiece, the pressing plate and the shim must be stable and reliable, and the pressing force must be appropriate to ensure that the workpiece does not loosen during cutting.

3. Linear motion (longitudinal and horizontal) and circular motion tables are not allowed to perform three items at the same time.

4. It is forbidden to change the ram speed during operation. The ram stroke and insertion position must be locked after adjustment.

5. When working, the head is not allowed to extend into the stroke of the ram to observe the processing conditions. The stroke cannot exceed the machine’s specifications.

6. You must stop when changing speeds, changing tools, and tightening screws.

7. After the work is completed, the handles are placed in the vacant position, and the workbench, the machine tool and the machine surroundings should be cleaned and tidy.

8. When using the crane, the spreader must be firm and reliable, and it is not allowed to operate or pass under the hanging objects, and work closely with the crane operator.

9. Check and lubricate all parts before driving. Wear all protective equipment and tie up cuffs.

10. It is not allowed to blow iron filings with your mouth and clean up iron filings by hand.
