What are the application features that we’re talking about?
Why we want to create a personal fpc1, its goal is to provide a fpc1 factory, so that the needs of the short-term application can be met to the lowest possible cost. Whether it’s research and development, entrepreneurship, education, or amateurs, they all need a machine that can easily and economically operate in a short time. In order for us to understand the design implications of the short run, we’ll make a comparison between the application and the more traditional application.
The time for the machine to cut the newly designed parts is usually a few hours, but for the cutting process itself, the traditional machine may be needed for only 10 minutes. If it is a traditional small fpc1, its main shaft may have five horsepower to 7.5 horsepower. If the main power supply is down, you probably down to closer to the classical Bridgeport factory, which is between 1 to 1.5 horsepower HP, then runtime will change, there are about 14 minutes. In addition, how fast is the traditional mill? It’s about 200 inches (IPM) per minute. If rapids is also reduced, if it reduces to 65 IPM, then the running time will also change, and the running time will increase, probably to 16 minutes. If, in the absence of automatic replacement tools, only quick replacement of the manual system, the running time can also increase, increasing the time by about 2 minutes. The result is this. The running time is 18 minutes, not 10 minutes. We all know that the difference is trivial in the time frame required for design, installation, fixtures, and code development. We know that if it’s a 1.5-horsepower fpc1 factory, it has about 65 IPM rapids, and what’s the funny thing about it? It is in a production environment that there is no tool change, so every minute of it can be said to be critical.
