CNC milling process
CNC machines are automated milling equipment that machine industrial components without direct human assistance. Thus CNC machining is a a most advanced automated manufacturing process combines high efficiency,high precision and high flexiblity.In the process, coded instructions of a part are pre-programmed and sent to an internal computer, which allows factories to machine parts accurately and quickly. With CNC, it is easy to realize the product from concept. CNC milling process could machine any complicate and precise parts such as mold inserts and industrial parts in small quanity. Generally, CNC mills are very efficient when it comes to prototyping, the short-run production of complex parts, and the fabrication of precision parts and components.
Traditional turning is completed uttilizing a lathe which requires machinist’s constant attention. As the technology advaces, now CNC tuning is widely used in mordern workshop as a replacement of lathe to free labor meanwhile achieving higher accuracy. CNC turning has got some slight difference from the milling machine and it refers to the automated machining process of shaping material, such as metal, wood or plastic, using a computer numeric control (CNC) machine.The process allows for multiple cutting actions to be completed under computer control. The main funtion of CNC turning is that it can turn or rotate the work-piece. So mostly the process is used to machine s round work-pieces. Normally, the CNC tuning machined parts could not be too big, otherwise centrifugal force is too strong for the chuck instrument to hold as the rotating speed is very fast during the machining process. CNC turning centers are generally good for prototypes of mechanical parts to short-run volumes
What is the difference between CNC milling and Tuning process?
Firstly, they are commonly equipped with CNC system. The traditional lathe with CNC system is called CNC turning while the milling machine with CNC and cutters is call CNC milling center. In terms of axis, CNC turning is controlled by 2 axes while CNC milling gis controlled by 3 axes.
Secondly, CNC turning is is a manufacturing process in which bars of material are held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material to create the desired shape, whereas CNC milling is a process utilizing a cylindrical cutting tool that can rotate in various directions to create a wide array of arch shapes, slots, holes, and other necessary impressions.
In a word, When it comes to machining parts, there are a lot of variables. HS mold can help you determine the best way to have your parts made to save cost without compromising the quality.
