The difference three control systems commonly in woodworking engraving machinesThorpe
We all know that to realize the intelligent operation of woodworking engraving machine, the main component is the control system. The woodworking engraving machine control system on the market can be roughly divided into three types: computer control, handle control and integrated machine control. There are still some differences in their functions. Today we will analyze the differences between these control systems.
That is, by installing the Weihong control card on the PCI slot of the computer motherboard, and installing the Weihong software driver on the computer to control the walking of the XYZ axis of the engraving machine and the rotation of the spindle motor, the processing effect can be previewed and can be seen at any time. Processing track, if the program loading error can be corrected in time; Weihong control system is the most widely used system in the engraving machine control system at present, the interface is user-friendly, the operation is simple and convenient, the functions are complete, the program compatibility is extremely high, and various engraving CAMs are available. Software can be imported directly or indirectly. The disadvantage is that a separate computer needs to be configured, but fortunately, the requirements for computer configuration are extremely low. For customers with small capital budgets, they can configure second-hand out-of-pocket computers by themselves. Now Weihong has launched various versions of different control software and hardware, including multi-axis linkage.

Handle control: You can control the movement of the engraving machine by holding it in your hand. It saves space and does not occupy the computer; the disadvantage is that the operation is relatively troublesome, after all, all functions are collected on one control panel, and it is easy to press the wrong function keys if the operation is not skilled. It is widely used with various engraving machines (including four-axis linkage), without occupying a separate computer, which greatly reduces the footprint of the equipment, and it is also more convenient to set the knife. The disadvantage is that there is no preview and other functions, and the interface is not as intuitive as the computer.
All-in-one control: independent integrated design, using industrial computer, PLC and other integrated control, rich interfaces, complete functions, can realize multi-axis control and automatic tool change. It is mainly used for high-end engraving machines, machining centers, and some mold machine engraving machines. The anti-interference ability of the control system, as well as all aspects of performance, control accuracy, etc. are superior to other categories. This system is not mainstream in CNC operating systems. , but in the engraving machine control system, it is the mainstream of the all-in-one machine category. The disadvantage is that the price is high, and the operability tends to be more like CNC machine tools. For some customers, the operation is not as simple as the former.
These three control systems widely used in woodworking engraving machines have their own advantages and disadvantages, so everyone must be clear about their machine requirements when choosing. The users who use the woodworking engraving machine to cut materials generally choose the all-in-one machine control and industrial panel, while the customers who do relief and pattern generally choose the computer control or the handle control.
Advantages of woodworking engraving machine:
Long working hours of woodworking engraving machine
The woodworking engraving machine can work continuously for 24 hours without rest, while the working time of the manual engraving machine has a certain limit and also needs a rest time.
cost saving woodworking engraving machine
The woodworking engraving machine has been manipulated on the computer. In the actual operation, it is only necessary to input the main parameters that have been designed in advance. It is not necessary to touch the wooden raw materials immediately. At most, the wood material must be placed in a specific part of the woodworking engraving machine. Then it is only necessary to choose to open it, and the staff only has to carry out immediate supervision on the side after the woodworking engraving machine is opened.
Higher precision and smoother
Since the woodworking engraving machine is mechanically automated on the computer, it can exceed the pre-set precision. If you engrave a 1.5mm character, it means to engrave a 1.5mm character without a doubt.
Faster than hand engraving
Compared with the previous manual engraving, the engraving knife driven by the electric motor can run quickly for a long time. Within the allowable range of the equipment, it can completely guarantee continuous operation for dozens of hours, and ensure that the precision will not change.
