In current world, power saving systems are preferred over other regular systems. Hence in this power saving system in Lathe we are using an electronic A.C. motor speed controller. In most of the machines using of A.C. motor’s constant speed is best suited for several applications. Speed variation occurs due to overloading, line voltage fluctuations in the input supply, over-voltage, changes in the frequency, surge issues etc., which can be solved using A.C engine speed controller. Hence to overcome the above issues electronics control unit are suggested. These issues could cause poor speed regulation of the motor and also lesser potency. To avoid these issues electronic unit is used to take care of consistency of speed of the motor. The speed control of the A.C motor can be constructed ensuring the automatic speed regulation irrespective of load conditions, we can set the required constant speed with constant power. In this mechanical project, there will be an AC motor attached to a frame which will work as a spindle. A chuck is attached for holding the material on the shaft of the AC motor. On the axis of this motor, there is a rack and pinion assembly working as a tailstock. Rack and pinion are installed on the bearing stand for smooth operation. Thus, the tailstock is operated by the manual handle.
