Guide To CNC Machining Services

Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) Machining is a high-speed precision device used for manufacturing. There are varieties of cutting tools used in this method of manufacturing to make the precise product. If you are looking for CNC machining services then you can simply consult manufacturing companies in Australia.

The common CNC machines available for manufacturing purpose:

  •    Horizontal milling machines
  •    Lathes
  •    Vertical milling machines

You can produce complex cylindrical designs in cost effective manner by using a CNC lathe or 3 or 5-axis CNC milling devices. In CNC lathe instruments the part stock turns accordingly whereas the cutting tools remain static.

If we talk about CNC device, here the cutting tools move automatically but the stock remains at the same place. Custom fabrication can also be done through CNC devices.

For constructing the geometry of a part below discussed things are controlled by CNC computer

  •    The rotational movement and speed of the stock   
  •    Feed rates of the static  tools
  •    In order to build square features the round geometry is firstly constructed on CNC lathe then square features on a CNC mill.

If you want to manufacture a particular part on a CNC Machine then you first need to feed programs for the same in the device. The instructions added to machine notify the movement of the machine. The instructions given to CNC Machine are further encoded with the help of CAM (computer aided manufacturing).

This is done in the organization with CAD (computer-aided design) model that is given by the customer. You can check this out to get more information related to CNC machine.

The CAD model prepared by the customer is loaded into the CAM software and tool parts are made according to required geometry.  Once the tool paths are well-known the CAM software can make machine code. This code describes things like:

  •    How fast to move?
  •    Where to move in a 5-axis X, Y, Z, A, and B?
