Mechanical transmission system is a product of the industrial revolution, alternative to achieving a large-scale production of workshop manufacturing
In the late 19th century, with the increase of productivity in the industrial revolution, production was no longer satisfied with Dan Xu manufacture, but need parts between operations are completed in different production and workers handling the parts between the Workbench. Into the 20th century, mechanical devices were applied to this, instead of workers, known as "mechanical transmission system" device has been used for many years, until the end of the 20th century are replaced by electronic transmission system.
Mechanical transmission system manual transmission, efficiency was improved, but the flaws are obvious: ① body heavy and large amount of inertia, and is suitable for high efficiency and the production of complex parts. Different products need to have a separate set of cams and speed and is not suitable for batch production. ③ modification is more difficult and costly.
Mechanical presses combined with electronic multi-station transfer systems are a symbol of industrial civilization
Enter the end of the 20th century, development of stamping technology of automatic control technology brings new development. Through the use of servo control technologies, electronic multi-station transmission technologies. Combination of electronic transmission systems and mechanical presses than mechanical efficiency of multistage transmission system over 30%, manually press mode 3 times more than double the efficiency of.
