Something You Should Know About CNC Equipment

CNC machines are electro-mechanical devices that manipulate machine shop tools using computer programming inputs. Did you know? The name “CNC” actually stands for Computer Numerical Control and it represents one of two common methods to generate prototypes from a digital software file.

 

The first CNC equipment was developed in the 1940s and 50s and relied on a common telecommunication data storage technology known as “punched tape” or “perforated paper tape.” Punched tape technology is long obsolete as the data medium quickly transitioned to analog and then digital computer processing in the 1950s and 1960s.

 

How Does CNC Equipment Works:

 

Machining in general is a way to transform a stock piece of material such as a block of plastic and arrive at a finished product (typically a prototype part) by means of a controlled material removal process. Similar to the other prototype development technology, FDM (3D printing), CNC relies on digital instructions from a Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) or Computer Aided Design (CAD) file like Solidworks 3D. The CNC machine interprets the design as instructions for cutting prototype parts. The ability to program computer devices to control machine tools rapidly advances shop productivity by automating the highly technical and labor intensive processes. Automated cuts improve both the speed and the accuracy with which prototype parts can be created – especially when the material is critical (such as is the case with polypropylene – read more about polypropylene).

 

Oftentimes machining processes require the use of multiple tools to make the desired cuts (e.g. different sized drill bits). CNC equipment commonly combines tools into common units or cells from which the machine can draw. Basic machines move in one or two axes while advanced machines move laterally in the x, y axis, longitudinally in the z axis, and oftentimes rotationally about one or more axes. Multi axis machines are capable of flipping parts over automatically, allowing you to remove material that was previously “underneath.” This eliminates the need for workers to flip the prototype stock material and allows you to cut all sides without the need for manual intervention. Fully automated cuts are generally more accurate than what is possible with manual inputs. That said, sometimes finishing work like etching is better accomplished by hand as well as simple cuts that would require extensive design work to program the machine for automation.

 

Want to learn about the different types of CNC equipment? Read more below.

 

Types of CNC Equipment:

CNC machines typically fall into one the two general categories: conventional machining technologies and novel machining technology:

 

Conventional Technologies:

 

  • Drills:

Drills work by spinning a drill bit and moving the bit about and into contact with a stationary block of stock material.

 

  • Lathes:

Lathes, very much the inverse of drills, spin the block of material against the drill bit (instead of spinning the drill bit and putting it into contact with the material). Lathes typically make contact with the material by laterally moving a cutting tool until it progressively touches the spinning material.

 

  • Milling Machines:

Milling machines are probably the most common CNC equipment in use today. They involve the use of rotary cutting tools to remove material from the stock unit.

 

Novel Technologies:

 

  • Electrical and/or Chemical Machining:

There are a number of novel technologies that use specialized techniques to cut material. Examples include Electron Beam Machining, Electrochemical machining, Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM), photochemical machining, and Ultrasonic machining. Most of these technologies are highly specialized and are used in special cases for mass-production involving a particular type of material.

 

  • Other Cutting Mediums:

There are a number of other novel technologies that use different mediums to cut material. Examples include laser cutting machines, oxy-fuel cutting machines, plasma cutting machines, and water-jet cutting technology.

 

Materials Used:

Almost any material can be used in a CNC equipment. It really depends on the application. Common materials include metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and titanium, as well as wood, foam, fiberglass, and plastics such as polypropylene.

 

Application for Rapid Prototyping:

CNC equipment was the first major break-through in the field of rapid-prototyping. Before numerical control (in the case of punched tape technology) and computer numerical control (with analog and digital computing), parts had to be machined by hand. This invariably led to larger margins of error in end prototype products and even more so if/when machines were manually used for larger scale manufacturing.

 

Application for Manufacturing:

Many novel CNC specialty machines are built specifically for niche manufacturing processes. For example, electrochemical machining is used to cut highly durable metal products not otherwise feasible. Conventional CNC equipment is more adept at and typically used for prototype development than manufacturing.

Do You Know What Are the Different Types of Lathe Machinery?

There are several different types of lathe machinery designed for various purposes. A wood lathe is a small, simple device used exclusively for working with wooden materials. An engine lathe is designed for common metalworking tasks while a turret lathe can perform multiple functions on the same work piece. Tool room lathe machinery is typically utilized for procedures requiring a high degree of accuracy. Computer numerically controlled lathe machinery is capable of performing high-speed functions for mass-production applications.

 

Lathe machinery is utilized to perform a process known as turning. This process involves removing a certain amount of material from a workpiece by means of rotation. A cutting tool is pressed against the workpiece to shape it as it turns on the lathe. There are several different types of lathe machinery intended for specific purposes. Most lathes are manually operated, but automated versions are also manufactured.

 

A wood lathe is a small, simple machine consisting of a tool rest, headstock, tailstock, and bed. It is not designed for precision cutting because the shaping tool is hand-powered. Spinning is controlled by a belt-driven motor which can be adjusted to various speeds. Woodworking tools are supported by the tool rest, and manual pressure is applied to the workpiece. A certain amount of skill is required to accurately operate a wood lathe.

 

An engine lathe is designed for turning almost any type of metal work piece. Like the wood lathe, it consists of a headstock, tailstock, and bed. Shaping tools may be manually operated or gear driven. An engine lathe also features a compound rest and cross-slide for angular and cross cutting. This machine typically has a much wider speed range than a wood lathe.

 

A turret lathe is capable of performing a sequence of different operations on a single workpiece. Its design is similar to an engine lathe with an indexing turret attached. Turret lathes can significantly reduce production time and costs of certain metalworking processes. This multifunction device saves time by allowing the workpiece to remain attached to the lathe during multiple operations. The sequential operation also reduces costly errors resulting from repeated workpiece realignment.

 

Tool room lathe machinery is designed for metalworking tasks that require precision shaping. This type of lathe is extremely accurate and frequently utilized in machine shops. A computer numerically controlled lathe is able to perform high-speed operations on a large scale. These specialized machines are capable of repeatedly performing complex metalworking tasks without being readjusted. This machinery is often used in mass-production manufacturing applications.

Introduction of CNC Mini Lathe Machine

The CNC Mini Lathe is a perfect addition to any shop. It can be used to train employees on how to use CNC technology or how to just operate it manually. The mini lathe machine will usually incorporate both CNC technology and manual operation. Not only is this a great learning machine, but it also works well for the hobbyist.

 

Lathe machines are designed to operate with wood, aluminum or brass. The mini machines work on the same basis as its grown counterparts. Even though you will not be able to the type of work with a mini machine that you would with a large lathe machine, as in long runs, etc, you will still be able to create projects on the same basis. Carve, etch, taper, you name it, the CNC mini lathe can still do it.

 

The great thing about CNC technology is that with the software program you can recreate any project over and over. It could be years in between that same specific project and all you have to do is download the same software again and the project will turn out to the exact same measurements and specifications as the original.

 

Many people create their own versions of the mini lathe machine. Homemade DIY mini CNC machines can be created, but you must have some sort of knowledge about how the CNC technology works, computers, circuitry, the different axes that is used, etc. There is actually quite a bit of stuff that goes into a computer numeric controlled machine that incorporates robotic technology.

 

CNC mini lathes come in a variety of sizes, believe it or not. Some offer higher rpm rates. They usually operate on two or three of the axes and those are X, Y and sometimes X, Y, and Z. By knowing about the different axes and the type of movements that can be created using a combination of the axes, you will really be able to create some amazing projects.

 

Most of the time the program interface that is used with CNC mini lathes is very simple to operate and you can find the ones that even operate off of Windows. Different graphic programs can be used and then turned into a program that the machine will then duplicate. Just imagine all the different things that you can do with this sort of technology.

 

A variety of different manufacturers offer versions of the mini lathe machines and if you have any questions all you have to do is contact them. They can help you to even determine what size of the mini lathe machine would be perfect for you.

Vertical Turning Center: Myths vs. Reality

Vertical turning center may be most misunderstood and under-applied technology available in manufacturing today. The myth associated with vertical turning is that it is only applicable to large heavy parts. However, vertical turning brings as many advantages for small parts manufacturing as it does for large, heavy parts.

 

Target applications for vertical turning are the obvious heavy, hard-to-load workpieces requiring a crane or automation, or nonconforming part shapes that need to be fixture as opposed to traditional centralizing chucking. Additionally, fragile work pieces requiring low clamping pressures to prevent distortion also benefit from the vertical turning process. Let us not forget all the challenging parts out there with interrupted cuts and unbalanced work pieces. Therefore, if you stop for a minute and think about the applications I just outlined, the only popular turning applications I did not mention are those requiring a tailstock.

 

Taking Advantage of Gravity

So now that we have the gears turning, you may be asking yourself “what advantages does vertical turning provide that allows so many applications to benefit from it?” Before we get into the specifics, take a minute and think about how parts move through your shop. If you’re processing chucker parts, I’d guess that nearly 100% of these parts move through your shop on a pallet lying flat, and we do this because it’s the most stable way. What makes this the best way to move and store your parts? Gravity.

 

Well, gravity is the number one, largest contributor to the vertical turning process. Gravity is a constant, providing a positive downward force on the workpiece, assisting the workholding. This assists those heavy machining applications by providing additional stability especially on those delicate parts that like to resemble eggs or potato chips after machining. Minimal clamp force can be applied to these types of parts and gravity keeps the part in the chuck. I have actually machined parts and removed them from the chuck without even opening the chuck after machining. Try that on your horizontal spindle lathe – I bet you dig the part out of the chip conveyor.

 

The Advantages of Additional Support

Having the spindle vertical, as opposed to horizontal, allows the spindle to be supported 360°, eliminating spindle droop and increasing the maximum weight allowable on the spindle. The additional support also dissipates the cutting forces created by heavy and or interrupted cutting. Eliminating spindle droop also allows capabilities for achieving better part flatness and perpendicularity accuracies.

 

Ergonomic Advantage

The vertical turning center also provides a distinct ergonomic advantage by facilitating part loading. I’ve witnessed operators performing some very unsafe acts by actually placing one foot into a horizontal lathe to hold a workpiece in place on locators while closing the chuck. With the vertical lathe, an operator can simply place the part into the chuck, just like they place it onto a pallet, and close the chuck while gravity does its job.

 

Footprint Advantage

I visit shops on a weekly basis and I repeatedly hear from customers that they’re challenged with a lack of floor space. Brick and mortar is expensive. Many shops simply do not have the luxury of being able to add on to their facility, and they need to utilize every square foot available. I also see literally hundreds of horizontal lathes running chucker work and the tailstock is never used. Many machines may go their entire life and never have tailstock used. This creates another huge advantage of the vertical turning center as it normally consumes one-half of the footprints of a horizontal lathe. And more times than not, the footprint of a twin spindle vertical lathe is still either less than or equal to a horizontal lathe.

 

When you’re looking for your next turning center, I hope you consider the advantages and profitability that vertical turning center can bring to your business. If you’d like help evaluating your options, try to contact with FALCON Machine Tools Co., Ltd., they are the outstanding manufacturer of specializing in milling machines, grinding machines, and turning machines.

How to Pick the Right CNC Lathe Machine

There are a wide-range of types and manufacturers of CNC machines. Like CNC vertical lathe, heavy duty lathe, and so on machine tools are common machinery in the industry. When shopping for a new or used CNC there are a number of key characteristics to pay attention to. Here are some of the most important:

 

Number of Axes

 

This is the most fundamental quality of any CNC machine. In most basic designs, the cutting head moves in three directions – X, Y, and Z – and the tool itself always points down, aligned with the Z axis. This design presents some limitations compared to multi-directional machines containing a fourth axis.

 

Mechanical Movement Ranges

 

Greater tool movement ranges allow for the ability to create a larger part in a single pass. To determine the size of the machine you’ll need, consider the maximum size of the largest individual part of what you’re trying to create.

 

Use of a Specialized Spindle

 

The spindle that connects the motor and the rotating tool has a large impact on the accuracy of the CNC lathe machine. Its primary roll is to ensure that the rotation of the tool is highly concentric with minimal vibration and that it stays this way under load. A higher quality spindle will increase precision by decreasing the total amount of back and forth wobble, the difference between the intended and the actual diameter of the tool.

 

Movement Speeds

 

There are a lot of factors that contribute the amount of time needed to complete a job, but the final factor in the equation is always the performance of the CNC machine itself. While it might seem like you would want to go with the highest maximum speed, there are downsides to this option. Do your research carefully and choose a machine that will fit your needs.

An Introduction to Precision Machining Services and CNC Machining

From a simple coin and electronics we use every day to parts of an airplane, everything comes from a very sophisticated process known as the precision technology service. It is a process of removing materials from a workpiece while gripping close to great finishes. This precision machining service has many types, which include machining, milling, electrical discharge and tuning. Nowadays most manufacturing companies use advanced precision machining performed by an EDM machine. Generally, however, high precision lathes are controlled by the use of CNC or Computer Numerical Controls.

 

A precision technology service contributes to each and every object that we see. Most metal products go through precision machining to achieve consistent, quality products usually from intricate blueprint designs. Also, wood and plastic materials use this machining method operated by highly trained and specialized machinists. The process in precision machining involves cutting tools, which are responsible for removing material from a workpiece. For the tool to do its cutting properly, it moves in a specific direction for a correct and precise cut. This main motion is what we call the cutting speed. The secondary motion is called feed in which the workpiece can be moved while in the process. Simultaneously, the motions and sharpness of the tool allow the precision machining service to operate.

 

One type of precision technology service is a milling machine, which shapes and cuts materials. This machine can either be horizontal or vertical based on the spindle orientation. It works in a manner wherein both the milling cutter and the workpiece move, which is controlled mechanically, manually or controlled by a CNC milling machine. One advanced milling machining used by most manufacturing companies is the CNC Milling Machine. It is mainly controlled by a computer and is normally used with horizontal or vertical milling machines and can also move the shaft along the Z axis. The first CNC machine, eventually called NC (Numerically Controlled) machine, was made in the 1940s. The CNC machining of today work with Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) softwares.

 

The lathe machine was dated back to ancient Egypt. As years passed, it has transitioned from something made out of wood, to something made of metal. Nowadays, lathe machines are operated by a computer. In some countries where technology is advanced, a CNC Lathe Machine is used. It is a lathe machining in which it is controlled by computers. Thus this method generates more varieties of dimensions, features and shapes while holding very close tolerance.

What You Need to Know About CNC Metal Lathe?

Metal lathe is one of the processes taking place in the actual metal process. When metal is cut and treated, metal lathe is one of these cutting processes. CNC Metal lathe device is a general term for a machine utilized to eliminate material for a work piece, though the use of a cutting tool. They are specifically designed for metals.

 

There are a lot of lathe variations in terms of processing the metals. In the metalworking field, several lathe techniques are being used to ascertain the quality and cut of the metal that is under processed. At the same time, there is a lot of CNC Lathe used for metal lathes. Let us discuss one by one the most commonly used Metal Lathe machines that are being used in treating any types of metals.

 

First on the list is the centering lathe machine. It is a double head machine which focuses the work at the center of the work piece. He heads are fixed and moved forward creating a drill hole in the middle of the work piece in both ends of it. The result form of the work piece can now be utilized in the center with the aid of another operation. Center lathe can also be referred to as an engine lathe and more metals are subject to this type of lathe. This type of machine is the most widely used machine for metal lathe and it is preferred by most of the general hobbyist or machinist.

 

Another type of machine for lathe purposes is the capstan lathe machine. The machine is categorized to be a manufacturing machine. It is a specialized machine which incorporates the functions of a typical lathe machine plus the revolutionary tailstock in a capstan style. It is commonly used for woodworking and other wood industries alike.

 

Another type of machine used for lathe is the turret lathe. It is also considered a manufacturing machine, and is very similar with the capstan machine appearance. Unlike the capstan machine which is stationary, turret machines are more versatile and mobile since it contains the turret slides that glide straight to the bed, instead of being fixed in one place.

 

There is another type of lathe machine called the combination CNC lathe wherein it introduces milling and drilling operations into the plain work piece of the lathe. These types of machines normally have an x and a y axis using the carriage for x and a top slide for y.

 

Old and Typical lathe machines are being replaced rapidly by CNC lathes machines. CNC lathe uses state of the art tooling for better precision and accuracy. These CNSC machines are highly specialized, but they are set for a simpler way of setting lathes and operation. The processes are modern and advanced. Most machinists and hobbyist prefer the CNC lathe machines since they are more versatile, efficient, and simple compared with typical lathe machines. At the same time, they are sure that the operation is not taken into sacrifice while making the work simpler than it gets.
