Difference between machining center and CNC, CNC” is the abbreviation of Computerized Numerical Control in English, so all machine tools with computer digital control can be called CNC, and CNC machining center is just one of them.
What is a CNC machining center?
CNC machining centers are developed from CNC milling machines. The biggest difference with the CNC milling machine is that the machining center has the ability to automatically exchange machining tools. By installing different tools on the tool magazine, the machining tool on the spindle can be changed in one clamping by the automatic tool changer to realize various machining. Features.
What is CNC?
CNC is the abbreviation of English Computerized Numerical Control.
The CNC machine tool automatically processes the machined parts according to the pre-programmed machining program. We process the machining process of the parts, process parameters, tool trajectory, displacement, cutting parameters (spindle revolutions, feeds, back-feeding, etc.) and auxiliary functions (tool change, spindle forward, reverse, The cutting fluid is turned on and off, and is programmed into a machining program according to the instruction code and program format specified by the CNC machine tool, and then the contents of the program list are recorded on the control medium (such as punched tape, tape, disk, bubble memory). ), and then input into the numerical control device of the CNC machine tool to command the machine tool to machine the parts.
