CNC machines

Numerical control (NC) is the automation of machine tools that are operated by precisely programmed commands encoded on a storage medium, as opposed to controlled manually by hand wheels or levers, or mechanically automated by cams alone. Most NC today is computer (or computerized) numerical control (CNC) in which computers play an integral part of the control.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

CNC Projects

Having an engraving or a model manufactured through the use of CNC machines is a cool process. We no longer have to make things with our bare hands and can now control the accuracy, timing and repetition of new products through the use of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines. With that said, knowing the process […]

Commonly Used Bits for CNC Milling Operations

In addition to CNC milling being used for metal objects, it is commonly the preferred choice for woodworking. With this method of operation, there are many times when wood cutting is required but compared to metal fabrication, producing holes takes less pressure. For that reason, drill bits are quite different for the two different types […]

History of CNC Milling

CNC milling is sometimes referred to as CNC machining, which operates using commands or G codes programmed from an internal computer. CNC, the acronym for Computer Numerical Control, consists of alphanumeric codes, each leading to very specific functions performed by a machine. In the 1950s, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and United States Air Force […]
