machine tool control with vector control AC motor drive from V&T Technologies Co., Ltd.


Do you know why vector control frequency inverters are used for machine tools?

Hi,this is Daniel,i am a engineer professional in prototyping and tooling in 
China.Hope we could learn more each other in here and also hope have an 
opportunity to work with you. (Prototype and Tooling life in Shenzhen)

Quick intro:

I specialize in drilling and tapping equipment for manufacturers and machine builders.  Whether you need to remove 10,000 injection mold sprus (sp?) or drill a bunch of holes, I can likely help you.

I'm here to network and to learn.

Belden Inc manufactures universal joints and drive shaft assemblies. In general, does anyone come across these in their line of work?

@ j.srinivas:

how to create a helical gear profile in solidworks or pro-e, should i use an equatin to create the curve if so do let me know the equation

It is not clear whether you are talking about the involute profile or the helix part of it. If it is the involute profile, then you need to define it in an equation for one side of the profile, then the second side and then take a cut for the tooth profile. As for the helix, You can insert a helical cut (similar to creating a helical spring) and then pattern it.

The above method is valid for Proe.

If the intention is for Motion simulation, then there is no need to model the tooth profile. You can simply have a surface for OD for the purpose of interference check and a PCD for mating.
