Reliability Technology Design System of CNC Machine Tool

1  Significance of reliability design

As we all know, the reliability of a product is first designed, and secondly manufactured [1]. According to statistics, the contribution rate of the product design stage to the reliability can reach 70% to 80%. It can be seen that the inherent reliability of the product is mainly determined by the design, and the design process gives the product the essential characteristics of “innate advantages and disadvantages”. Product safety and reliability is one of the main indicators that must be met in the design of electromechanical products. Only when the reliability is fully considered in the product design stage, and then guaranteed by manufacturing and management, can the reliability of the product be effectively improved, and the cost can be reduced. Realize the optimization of product structure and improve the usability of products.

In order to achieve the purpose of reliability design, in addition to the basic content of reliability design such as reliability modeling, reliability analysis and reliability distribution, it is also necessary to establish a systematic and comprehensive reliability design system in the enterprise, and realize the system Effective operation.

The establishment and operation of the reliability design system need to be closely integrated with the product development process. Its main contents include the establishment and application of reliability design criteria, the collection and analysis of reliability data, the establishment of reliability models, and the allocation and prediction of reliability indicators , Analyze the reliability characteristics and review and verify the reliability of the design scheme. The first two are the preliminary preparations for the reliability design system, and then reliability modeling, reliability prediction and distribution, reliability analysis, etc. are carried out on this basis. Finally, reliability review and verification are carried out after the product design is completed. Weak links and feedback to product design for cyclic improvement and optimization. In the process of reliability design, with the help of reliability-related software and tools, the accuracy and efficiency of the design work can be improved, the design cost can be reduced, and the inherent reliability characteristics of the product can be guaranteed to the greatest extent.

2  Reliability Design System Framework

The reliability design of the product is based on the prevention point of view, combined with the product development process (see Figure 1), the reliability design criteria, reliability prediction and distribution, reliability analysis, reliability review, and reliability test are used in the product development process And other technical and management methods to ensure the inherent reliability of the product. In order to achieve this goal, the product reliability design system architecture shown in Figure 2 can be established in the enterprise. The dotted line in the figure indicates that the corresponding reliability work needs to be carried out on the basis of the current engineering design, and the arrow indicates the reliability work between Data flow.

Combining Figure 1 and Figure 2, it can be seen that there is a wide range of data interactions between reliability design and product engineering design: on the one hand, the basic information needed to carry out reliability work is obtained according to the current engineering design plan, such as reliability modeling, FMECA and FTA technologies must be based on engineering design schemes; on the other hand, the reliability design analysis results are fed back to the engineering design of the product, such as the reliability of the whole machine is reasonably allocated to each The component unit uses FMECA and FTA technology to find the weak links in the product design plan, adopts remedial measures such as design changes to further optimize the design plan, and passes reliability reviews and tests, and finally forms manufacturing process documents, process specifications and standards.
