A main spindle controller of a machine tool varies a rotation speed of a main spindle that grips a workpiece to a varied maximum speed higher than a reference rotation speed set value as a set value of a reference rotation speed by a variation width set value as a set value of a variation width or a varied minimum speed lower than the reference rotation speed set value by the variation width set value in units of the tool path. At the same time, the main spindle controller refers to speed condition information that indicates a condition of the preliminarily stored reference rotation speed and variation width assuming that a chatter vibration is to be reduced, and when at least one of the reference rotation speed set value and the variation width set value does not satisfy the condition of the speed condition information.


A main spindle failure detection device for a machine tool includes a rotation speed detection unit, a reach time estimation unit, and a determining unit. The reach time estimation unit is configured to estimate a reach time in which the rotation speed of the main spindle reaches a predetermined rotation speed threshold using a non-linear model based on a rotation speed of the main spindle detected at a start of an inertia operation and a rotation speed of the main spindle detected after an elapse of preset measurement time from the start of the inertia operation. The determining unit is configured to compare the reach time estimated by the reach time estimation unit with a preset reach time in which the rotation speed reaches the rotation speed threshold, so as to determine a failure in the main spindle based on a result of the comparison.

In an NC device having a function as a monitoring apparatus for a machine tool, a monitoring parameter and a retracting parameter which are set and inputted through an input unit by an operator, can be stored in a storage unit. When, for example, monitoring is performed by using a load on a main spindle as machine information, a machining monitoring unit displays a monitored state on a monitor, and compares a threshold value, of the load on the main spindle, according to which occurrence of abnormality is determined, and which is set in the monitoring parameter, and an instruction load generated by a machine operation instruction unit with each other, to determine whether or not abnormality has occurred. When abnormality is determined as having occurred, a retracting instruction is transmitted to a retracting instruction unit according to the retracting parameter, and display is performed on the monitor.

A window function calculator applies a Hann window function to Vd (n) to obtain a numeric value Vw (n). For twenty successive numeric values Vw(n) for every twenty numeric values (N=20), each of the Fourier calculators to executes Fourier calculation. Further, the SRSS calculators to calculate square root of sum of squares of SIM and COS components of respective orders of the results of Fourier calculation as numeric values A2, A3, A4, A5. A subtractor calculates a numeric value Ci=A3A5, while a subtractor calculates a numeric value Si=A4A2. A Frequency calculator calculates a numeric value Fi=(m+1+2*ATAN2 (Ci, Si)/)/(NT), which indicates the frequency identified. An amplitude calculator doubles the square root of the sum of squares of the numeric values Ci and Si, and calculates a numeric value Ai that indicates the amplitude of the frequency identified.

In a system including a master station, slave stations, and a loop communication path for connecting the master and slave stations, the master station measures for each of the slave stations a transmission lag time from transmission of a communication frame in a forward direction through a loop communication channel in the master station to reception of the communication frame returned in a backward direction from the slave station, and calculates timer correction times for the slave stations based on both the transmission lag times measured for the slave stations and delay time information representing delay times caused by communication frame processing in the slave stations. Each of the slave stations includes a transmission/reception switch which switches a communication frame transmitting/receiving direction between the forward and backward directions in the loop communication channel, to allow timer synchronization in the loop communication path formed by the single communication channel.
