Woodworking Engraving Machine VS Woodworking Processing CenterTina
Before analyzing the similarities and differences between woodworking engraving machines and machining centers, we must first understand what they are. Woodworking engraving machine is generally divided into single process, double process, three or four processes, etc. Generally speaking, woodworking engraving machine can directly change the number of cutter heads, and it is mainly used to engrave some simple patterns. Generally speaking, machining centers have 8 tool magazines, 12 tool magazines or even more, and the plate design can be more complicated.
So, the two sides have a lot in common, and there are many differences.
First of all, the most intuitive is the number of cutter heads. The woodworking engraving machine has a maximum of 4 knives, and the machining center can have more cutter heads. Therefore, it can be seen from the end-to-end quantity that there is a large gap in processing functions between the two sides.
Secondly, engraving machines generally have multiple spindles, three processes have three spindles, and four processes have four spindles. Each spindle is equipped with a cutter head. Which tool head needs to be used for machining, which spindle will sink. The machining center has only one spindle, but a tool magazine with a large number of tool heads. When changing a tool, the spindle moves to the tool magazine, and after selecting a suitable tool head, the machining operation starts.
The third is the engraving speed and accuracy. The processing accuracy and speed of the engraving machine is lower than that of the machining center, because the configuration of the two is different. The price of the machining center is high, and the configuration is relatively high. Therefore, the machining center is higher than the engraving machine in terms of engraving speed and accuracy.
The fourth is the function, the restriction on the cutter head makes the engraving machine limited to simple operations such as engraving and drilling. In addition to engraving functions, the machining center also has functions such as cutting, engraving and milling, side milling, and chamfering.
