3 axis CNC machining center with Automatic Tool Changer for woodworking adopts double drum tool magazine including 16 tools, the CNC woodworking machining center is especially designed for wood furniture making.
The 3 axis ATC CNC router machine is suitable for various complex products processing. According to the needs of different production processes, customers are equipped with 6, 8, 10 and 12 bits. Their are two kinds of tool changing modes: straight line change tool and disc tool changer. Widely used in plate carving, milling, chamfering, side milling, drilling, cutting, slotting and so on.
What Is Automatic Tool Changer (ATC)?
The full form of ATC is Automatic Tool Changer, which is a device for transferring, loading and unloading of tools between the spindle and the tool magazine. Automatic tool changer kit realizes the needs of continuous machining tool change between the part processes, that is, after each process is completed, the new tool used in the next process is automatically changed to the spindle, the exchange of tools is generally completed by the coordinated action of the manipulator, tool magazine and spindle. Compared with multi spindle CNC routers, ATC only needs one spindle in the headstock, the spindle components have sufficient rigidity to meet the requirements of various precision machining. In addition, the tool magazine can store a large number of tools for multi-step machining of complex parts, which can significantly improve the adaptability and machining efficiency of CNC router machines. The ATC system in the CNC machining center consists of two parts: a tool magazine and an automatic tool change device. It has two major advantages: the first is that only one spindle is reserved, which is beneficial to simplify the structure of the spindle and improve the rigidity of the spindle; the second is that a large number of tools with different types and functions can be stored in the library, which is convenient complete various complex and multi-step processing procedures. Automatic tool changer kit is composed of tool magazine, tool selection system, tool exchange mechanism and other parts, and the structure is more complicated. It is responsible for transferring the tool between the tool magazine and the spindle, pushing the tool to be used to the spindle, and then sending the replaced tool back to the tool magazine inside. Although this tool change method is not as straightforward as the previous one, it avoids the tool magazine and spindle from moving for tool change, and is replaced by an automatic tool changer. In this way, the movement range of the mechanical components is reduced, the tool change is completed faster, and the design layout is also more flexible.
What Is ATC CNC Router?
ATC CNC routers are a type of automatic CNC machine with tool changer for cabinet making, door making, furniture making, crafts making, decorations, musical instruments, sign making, windows, tables, and most popular woodworking projects & plans. The spindles usually carry tool magazines with 6 cutters or 8 cutters or 10 cutters or 12 cutters. The tools can automatically change according to the working requirements when the machine works, no need of manual operation. You will meet three most common types of ATC CNC router kits, which include linear ATC CNC kits, drum ATC CNC kits (rotary ATC CNC kits), and chain ATC CNC kits.
