Module ll
13. a) The work-table of an NC machine is driven by a closed-loop positioning system
that consists of a servo motor, leadscrew and optical encoder. The leadscrew
pitch = 4 mm and is coupled directly to the motor-shaft (gear) ratio (1 :1). The
optical encoder generates 225 pulses per motor revolution. The table has
been programmed to move a distance of 200 mm at a feed rate = 450 mm/
min.

i) How many pulses are received by the control system to verify that the
table has moved the programmed distance ?
ii) What are the pulse rate and the motor speed that correspond to the specified
feed-rate ?

b) What are the NC application characteristics ?


OR
14. a) The part drawing of a component is shown in Fig. Q. 14. The speed and feed
rate are 592 rpm and 100 mm/min. respectively. The machine has a floating
zero features, and absolute positioning. The thickness of plate is 10 mm.
Write the manual part program.
