FF-NSseries --- Servo Control Friction Welding Machine

| Servo Control Friction Welding Machine FF-NS series

Following the successful development of a phase adjusting friction welding machine with servo control of spindle rotation in 1999, NITTO SEIKI succeeded in developing servo control of forge force in 2000.

Since then, many achievements and repeated improvements have been made and FF-NS series has been developed as it is now.  It is a “Supreme” machine which is suitable for those users who wish to have higher precision, higher quality and more stable operations.

Features
Servo control of spindle rotation

Servo control of forge force

Servo control of spindle rotation By controlling spindle rotation with a servo motor and original control program, stable stop angle and stop time are secured. As a result, high-precision angle control is achieved.
 (Stop angle accuracy:±0.2)

No consumables such as brake pads are needed since conventional hydraulic brakes are no longer necessary.
Servo control of forge force By controlling forge force with 1)servo motor, 2)ball-screw structure and 3)original control program, high-precision position control and stable drive are achieved without being subjected to oil temperature.

Forge force measured by load cell is feedback controlled by original program, and as a result smoother drive is achieved.

Advantages of servo control 

Stable operation without being subjected to oil temperature.

High-precision weld is possible.

Angle control expands the range of the application of friction welding such as to phase adjusting workpiece.

Servo control reduces more carbon dioxide emissions than hydraulic control dose.

Better energy-saver.

No oil leakage >>> Improved working environment.

No waste oil >>> Environment-friendly.

Feedback control of forge force enables smooth drive at low speed range.

Uniform output under any conditions (temperature, humidity and so on)

Downsized hydraulic unit >>> Space-saving and low noise.
