What are the differences between CNC Machining Center,CNC engraving and milling machine and engraving machine? As a newer in machine industry, maybe you don’t clearly these differences. And don’t know how to choose a suitable for your requirements. In this blog, as an experienced CNC engineer, we will introduce these differences.
Suitable for carving and milling.On the basis of the engraving machine, improved the spindle, servo motor power and lading capacity. The engraving and milling machine is also developing at a high speed, generally called a high speed machine. It has stronger cutting ability and higher machining accuracy. It’s also possible to directly process materials with a hardness of more than HRC60 and mold them at one time. Widely used in precision mold roughing finishing once, mold copper electrode, aluminum parts processing, shoe mold manufacturing, fixture processing, watch industry. Due to fast processing speed and good smoothness, it plays an increasingly important role in the machine tool industry.
When using machining center to machining parts, the CNC system can control the machine tool and automatically select and replace the tools according to different processes after the workpiece is clamped. The machine can automatically change the spindle speed, the feed amount and the trajectory of the tool relative to the workpiece and other auxiliary functions. And continuously drill, boring, reaming, tapping, milling, etc. and multi-process processing. Since the machining center can complete various processes in a centralized and automatic manner, it avoids artificial operation errors, reduces workpiece clamping, measurement and adjustment time of the machine tool, and workpiece turnover, handling and storage time, thereby greatly improving processing efficiency and processing. Precision, so it has good economic benefits.The machining center can be divided into a vertical machining center and a horizontal machining center according to the position of the spindle in space.
Concept is a bit broader, he refers to a variety of engraving machines used through computer numerical control. It can be Can be applied to a variety of flat materials for cutting, 2D engraving, 3D engraving. The main functions and advantages of the multi-functional metal engraving machine: powerful, multi-purpose, whether it is the production of bronze, stainless steel, titanium, aluminum and other metal surface lettering, engraving and art graphic crafts, etc.
Min. woking table size of CNC machining center is 830mmx500mm, Max. working table size of CNC engraving and milling machine is 700x620mm, min. working table size of CNC engraving and milling machine is 450x450mm, but the max. working table size of engraving machine is 450x450mm.
CNC machining center is suitable for processing equipment of large milling workpieces, large molds, hardness comparison materials, also suitable for the opening of ordinary molds. CNC engraving and milling machine is suitable for processing small mold, copper and graphite. Engraving machine is suitable for processing wood, two-color board, acrylic sheet and other low-hardness sheet.
In conclusion, CNC machining center is suitable for processing for machining workpieces with large milling operations. CNC engraving and milling machine is suitable for processing soft metal. Engraving machine is suitable for processing low-hardness matreial.
