REVIEW ON REAL TIME CONTROL OF LATHE MACHINE DURING TURNING OPERATIONS
Keywords:Automation, Retrofitting, Variable Frequency Drive, microcontroller and IOT.
In present days lathe machine is very useful in various industries in various operations like turning, machining, cutting, threading, knurling etc. Although lathe machines are very economical but now a day, CNC (Computer Numeric Control) took place of conventional lathe machine. But some changes make lathe as useful as CNC machine, which is useful either for skilled operators or unskilled operators. This conversion from conventional lathe to semi-automated lathe is basically done by retrofitting. In this project we used variable frequency derive, microcontroller, sensor to control the speed, and made lathe semi-automatic. In this we give input in the form of speed with the help of mobile phone or keypad. We can say we make lathe semi-automatic on IOT(Internet of Things) based, which provide high accuracy, high productivity and reduce set up cost as CNC machine has high set up cost.
