How to choose CNC engraving machineThorpe
CNC engraving machine is the product of the combination of CNC technology and engraving process, and is a special CNC machine tool. Similar to the general CNC machine tool, the CNC engraving machine controls the action of the engraving machine according to the program code through the CNC system to realize the automation of the engraving process. Compared with traditional manual engraving and profiling engraving, CNC engraving has significant advantages such as high production efficiency, high machining accuracy, high yield, and strong adaptability to parts; program generation is fast and easy to modify. Therefore, CNC engraving machine has become an effective means to realize the automation, high efficiency and high precision of engraving processing, and it is also the mainstream of the development of engraving machine today. Widely used in machinery industry, advertising media, consumer goods, architectural decoration and many other fields.
The CNC engraving machine is designed and typed through the special engraving software configured in the computer. The computer automatically transmits the design and typesetting information to the engraving machine controller, and then the controller converts the information into a stepper motor or power signal (pulse train) Servo motor control The main engine of the engraving machine generates the X, Y and Z axes of the road base rail of the engraving tool. At the same time, the high-speed rotating engraving head on the engraving machine cuts the processing material fixed on the host table through the cutter configured according to the processing material, and can engrave various plane or three-dimensional relief graphics and characters designed in the computer. , to realize automatic engraving operation.
So, what types of CNC engraving machines are there?
Type 1: CNC woodworking engraving machine
CNC woodworking engraving machine is an entry-level CNC woodworking engraving machine for the woodworking industry. Its advantages are low cost and convenient operation and maintenance. CNC woodworking engraving machine can move on three different axes simultaneously (such as X, Y, Z axis).
The layout is designed by CNC software, and the X, Y, Z axis engraving process generated by the CNC woodworking engraving machine is controlled by the controller, which can process the materials fixed on the worktable to meet the different requirements of customers. This CNC woodworking engraving machine mainly processes various plates. If you only work on a few wooden boards, this CNC wood engraving machine is definitely the ideal choice for you. The standard three-axis CNC engraving machines on the market also include multi-head CNC machine tools, multi-process engraving machines, etc.
Type 2: ATC CNC engraving machine
ATC CNC engraving machine is equipped with automatic tool changer. This type of CNC woodworking engraving machine can meet the needs of equipment replacement throughout the processing process, without the need for personnel to participate.
Compared with traditional hand tools, this CNC woodworking engraving machine can be equipped with various tools. Adjusted by the computer system program, the required tools are automatically replaced during the processing. Therefore, various processing requirements such as cutting, hollowing, slotting, punching, and slotting can be completed at the same time. This not only saves time, but also greatly improves processing quality and production efficiency. Therefore, this type of engraving machine is the first choice for large enterprises.
The 3: four-axis CNC engraving machine
Four-axis CNC woodworking engraving machine refers to a CNC engraving machine that can process X, Y, Z, and A axis trajectories. The main shaft of this four-axis CNC engraving machine can swing left and right. As a result, the spindle can be brought close to the workpiece and efficiently machined from many different angles.
Therefore, it can realize not only plane engraving, but also three-dimensional engraving and some irregular workpieces. In addition, this CNC woodworking engraving machine can reduce spindle vibration by controlling the machining angle, prolong the life of the machine tool, and improve the machining stability and accuracy by using the geometry of the tool. Therefore, the four-axis CNC woodworking engraving machine can realize three-dimensional working parts such as keel, Guanyin statue, Buddha statue, Roman column, etc. If you have a variety of processing requirements, such as three-dimensional workpieces, complex workpiece parts, and special-shaped workpiece parts, the four-axis CNC engraving machine can meet your diverse processing needs.
Type 4: Rotary axis CNC engraving machine
The rotary axis CNC engraving machine, also known as the four-axis CNC woodworking engraving machine, is equipped with a rotating device. Mainly machining cubic or cylindrical workpieces.
When processing rotary axis CNC woodworking, the engraving machine does not need to rotate the workpiece repeatedly, saving time. Compared with the ordinary CNC woodworking engraving machine, the rotary engraving machine reduces the manual workload and improves the production efficiency. Furthermore, since spindle tools can be machined in this layer, higher machining quality can be ensured.
The 5 category: CNC stone engraving machine
The stone carving machine is specially designed for all kinds of stone processing. Its processing path is the same as that of ordinary engraving machine. Machining functions include embossing, lettering, hollowing, cutting, seamless sewing, surface treatment, table milling.
The engraving machine is mainly suitable for the processing of various hard materials, such as stone, metal, jade, crystal, wood, artificial materials, synthetic materials, etc. It is widely used in inscriptions, garden engineering, large-scale sculptures, craft carvings, home decoration, movies, etc. industry.
