What You Should Know About CNC Router

by FORSUN CNC mechanic
Today’s CNC router machine is the epitome of high technology, focusing on providing high-quality, precise cutting and shaping customer needs. What You Should Know About CNC Router?

Whether your knowledge of CNC routers is limited, or you already have experience in using them and are seeking to develop more complex models, you may encounter questions when making some key decisions.

The following are some common questions about CNC engraving machines, mainly for those who want to start using a CNC router, we hope you can find the answers here.

What Is A CNC Router Machine?
The CNC router machine is considered a commonly used tool in modern mechanical workshops, and its main purpose is to cut softer materials such as wood, plastic, acrylic, foam, and certain softer metals. It is usually installed on a fixed table with a large working space, which has a main shaft that moves along three axes (X, Y, and Z). Router planers usually have three axes, but there are 4-6 axis variations, which are very suitable for more complex projects.

CNC router machines have become popular in mechanical workshops, kitchen manufacturers, sign manufacturers, metal processing workshops, and many other companies. You will find these machines in the world’s largest manufacturing plants and garages of part-time hobbyists and entrepreneurs.

No matter where the CNC router is used, it will reduce waste, increase efficiency, and allow its owners to create things they thought were impossible years ago.

CNC Router Machine Parts
The basic composition of the engraving machine: bed mechanism, spindle motor, transmission mode, control system, driver, step/servo motor, guide rail, frequency converter, pump, dust collector, etc. We hope to be helpful to those who want to know about CNC router machining centers. To learn more, you can go to our engraving machine accessories page to view.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Engraving Process?
Machining is a relatively complex process, and there are many factors that affect it. The main points are as follows: machine tool characteristics, cutting tools, control systems, material characteristics, processing technology, auxiliary fixtures, and the surrounding environment.

Which Characteristics Of The Material Affect Processing?
The main factors affecting the engraving performance of the material are the material category, hardness, and toughness. The material category includes metallic materials and non-metallic materials. In general, the greater the hardness, the worse the processability, the greater the viscosity, the worse the processability. The more impurities, the worse the processability, the greater the hardness of the particles inside the material, and the worse the processability. A general standard is: the higher the carbon content, the worse the workability, the higher the alloy content, the worse the workability, the higher the content of non-metal elements, the better the workability (but the non-metal content in general materials is strictly controlled of).

Which Materials Are Suitable For Engraving Processing?
Non-metallic materials suitable for carving include organic glass, resin, wood, etc., and non-metallic materials not suitable for carving include natural marble and glass. Metal materials suitable for engraving include copper, aluminum, and mild steel with hardness less than HRC40. Metal materials not suitable for engraving include quenched steel.

Which CNC Machine Is Best For Me?
Deciding which machine to buy depends on the machine you want to manufacture. The size, shape, and quantity of the parts you want to produce will help you choose the right machine.

Remember that the physical size of the worktable controls the working area on the CNC router machine, minus any space you need to clamp, dust collection, etc.

Also, think about the future: will you branch to a larger project at some point? If you think you need to process the entire paper at some point, you need a CNC router machine with a 4’x 8’working area.

CNC router machines come in various sizes and price ranges, so please consider what you are going to manufacture and how much you can afford. CNC machine tools may meet your needs and fit your budget!

How To Buy CNC Machine Tools Correctly?
What are the main criteria to consider when buying a CNC router machine? The following are some of the methods we have summarized for you, hoping to help you

1.Consider your desires
Before looking for a suitable supplier, please consider what you want to achieve with this machine. You can ask yourself the following questions:

What is the size of the workpiece to be processed?
What accuracy is required for the workpiece? Maybe more accurate in the long run?
What kind of engine power do I need for my hard/soft materials?
How hard is the material related to the torsional stiffness required by the CNC router machine?
How exactly is the selected CNC router machine suitable for my material/workpiece?
Will I need an additional axis in the future or should I handle larger parts? Push the artifact through?
Do I like to process infinitely high workpieces?

2.The correct way to search for router machines
It is useful to collect as much information as possible. It can be obtained in the following ways:

Excellent official website
Customer reviews/customer recommendations (Google)
Comment comparison report (eg Precifast)
YouTube channel (many providers have good YouTube channels that show the latest products being used)
3. Find a well-known CNC router manufacturer
The key to finding a suitable supplier or manufacturer is the following things to consider:

Do I provide free no-obligation consultation?
Does the supplied machine have a valid EMC test and CE declaration?
Is it possible for a free screening to help me make a purchase decision?
Will I have clear and understandable support before and after-sale?
Is there even free support after sales?
Do I have a contact person?
Is the machine made of high-quality parts?

If you include these points in your personal choice, it will be easier to find a CNC router machine supplier that meets your wishes before purchase (especially after purchase), which will be a reliable and competent help!
