Spindle vs Router

Go to the video – click here Hobby CNC machines typically use either a spindle or a router. While these two devices appear similar, they each have distinctly different characteristics. A router is commodity hardware, and may be found in any hardware store such as Lowes or Home Depot as well as online stores such as […]

Building a CNC router

This instructable will show you how I built my CNC router. I hope you can draw some inspiration from my build and that this instructable will be helpful for your future projects. This instructable shows all the steps I went through in designing and building this CNC router. The main thing I like about a […]

CNC Drawing Machine

Hello all and welcome to my first tutorial! Today I am showing you how to design a drawing CNC using as primary Hardware components a Digilent Arty board, DC Motors and RC Servos. Important Note: Because I am currently working on this project I will show you how to build the CNC and how to […]

CHOOSING A CNC PLASMA CUTTING MACHINE

This is a question I’m often asked, in my position working for a major manufacturer of plasma cutters. My company produces the plasma cutting tool as well as other peripheral devices (CNC controls, height controls, CAM software, etc.) that are used on CNC cutting machines, but does not produce the machine itself, as there are […]

DIY CNC Router

This instructable will show you how to construct a CNC Router that will allow you to cut 3-D shapes out of wood, plastic and aluminum using a standard hand held router.  Recently I have noticed that more and more projects on instructables have involved the use of some sort of CNC machine, be it a laser cutter, […]

Overview of critical issues

Knowing what feeds and speeds and related parameters (such as the degree of overlap of parallel tooth paths and the depth of cut) to use for a particular type of wood is the most important issue. Once these parameters are known, other issues fall in place.The best way to determine these parameters is to take […]

CNC Laser Cutter

The technology of CNC laser cutter is highly demand in the most of the shops and for the individuals too. This instrument doesn’t require any kind of interaction from human being, except the downloaded program and setting the required tools and to push the start button. These machines might be very expensive but if they […]

Milling Aluminium Using CNC Machines

There are several methods used for the aluminum extrusion fabrication process to attain the accuracy in the finished aluminium parts. The selection of the elements in the fabrication process highly depends on the resultant products that are being manufactured, and their product specifications. This may either be a simply or complex method that provides more […]

CNC Machining Centre

In case you didn’t know CNC is an acronym for Computer Numerical Controlled Machine, and these machines have become one of the most popular metal cutting tools currently used in engineering today. With the arrival of computers, the requirement for humans in many engineering processes is becoming less and less. This is particularly evident in […]
