Save money buying used CNC equipment for your business
Computer numeric control machinery (CNC) is one of the most important purchases a production business owner makes. Many small companies and individual owners consider purchasing CNC equipment used rather than spending a fortune buying new machines. The benefits of buying used CNC machinery include:1. The purchase price of used computer numeric control machinery is about 50% less...
Find the right type of CNC lathe machine to benefit your business
CNC lathes spin a block of material for cutting, sanding or drilling a work piece to create a three-dimensional object. Woodworkers, metal smiths, potters and glass workers use lathes to make products like table legs, bowls, candle holders, baseball bats, cue sticks and crankshafts.CNC lathe machines have begun to replace older manual models, and many shop owners have decided to...
Learn the terminology frequently used in CNC machinery
You don't need to be technologically savvy to learn what is meant by CAM or G-code. Computer numerical control (CNC) machinery sounds complex, and it is, but knowing some basic definitions will help your understanding of how a three-dimensional image on a computer screen becomes a part you can hold in your hand. Many machine shops are transitioning to CNC in order to increase...
Use CNC machinery news and trends to your advantage in the machine shop
If you have a good idea of what computer numerical controls (CNC) manufacturers are producing and what the new CNC machinery can do, you are already ahead of your competition. Putting that information into projects produced by your shop puts you farther in the lead. You don’t necessarily even have to have the latest CNC machines to implement the latest technology. As you...
Training on CNC milling machines can advance your career
CNC milling machines education and training is a good way to expand your basic training in industrial machines operations. This technical piece of equipment can perform a variety of precision tasks in a fraction of the time it takes to perform them on a traditional piece of machinery. Not only do you need knowledge of how CNC machines operate, but you also need to know basic...
Understand technical terms relating to CNC milling machines
CNC milling machines are suitable for machining industrial components in batches. Though CNC milling machines require programming for each type of component, their production rate is quite higher than that of manual milling machines.Whether you want to buy or rent CNC milling machines, you will need to understand various technical terms relating to them. This guide will...
Keep your employees safe as they operate CNC milling machines
While a CNC milling machine has more safety features than a regular mill, there are still safety precautions everyone who operates your milling machines CNC control should take. In fact, training should be included in the CNC milling machine price if at all possible. Regardless of whether you have a benchtop CNC milling machine or a large model, the same safety precautions should...
Purchase CNC milling machines for your business
CNC milling machines enable users to precision-cut hard metals such as steel or aluminum. They remove metal by rotating a multi-toothed cutter into a moving work piece. A CNC vertical milling machine (VMC) has a vertical spindle and an X-Y table that allows the work piece to move into position. A horizontal milling machine (HMC) has an X-Y table for work piece positioning and...
How to buy a CNC router that meets your machining requirements
CNC routers are computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines that you can use for cutting complex two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) shapes with routers (a power tool with a shaped cutter) spinning at high speeds. CNC routers automate the functioning of your cutting and fabrication machines, therefore providing greater speed and accuracy. You can alter the...
Keep your computer numerical control machinery in top operating condition
Making the most of CNC machinery means taking good care of it. It’s an expensive piece of equipment for any shop and it can vastly improve the quality, as well as the quantity, of production. However, CNC machines are high-tech pieces of equipment and need specialized care to extend their usefulness.While CNC manufacturers recommend that you hire someone from the CNC...
