Abstract:


Background: As the basis of mechanical manufacturing, large-scale machine tools are being developed for improving processing accuracy, load-bearing capacity and rigidity. Hydrostatic thrust bearing, hydrostatic guide and hydrostatic ram are important components of large machine tools; with the continuous improvement of product accuracy requirements, the research on the hydrostatic thrust bearing, hydrostatic guide and hydrostatic ram has become more important.

Objective: This paper presents the current research on hydrostatic thrust bearing, hydrostatic guide and hydrostatic ram to highlight the importance of hydrostatic ram in improving the machining accuracy of machine tools. The study aims to lay a foundation for research and development of hydrostatic ram in the future.

Methods: Firstly, the hydrostatic bearing technology is introduced. Secondly, the research status of hydrostatic thrust bearing, hydrostatic guide and hydrostatic ram is presented to provide theoretical basis for improving the processing performance of rest ram.

Result: Deformation compensation and thermal deformation compensation of hydrostatic ram have been studied more. Most of the research study focuses on the accuracy of hydrostatic ram, but less on the bearing performance of hydrostatic ram.

Conclusion: Breakthroughs have been made in the research on precision control and structural form of the hydrostatic bearing at home and abroad. Most scholars take the ram of Computer Numerically Control (CNC) boring and milling machines as the research object, but there is less research on the ram of vertical lathes. Therefore, the academic circle should pay more attention to the bearing performance of the hydrostatic ram of vertical lathes.

Keywords:
