There are many types of CNC milling machines, which can be divided into the following according to the form of motion:
- CNC vertical milling machine
- CNC horizontal milling machine
These are the two forms of exercise we see most often. Among them, the vertical CNC milling machine has the following types:
- CNC vertical machining center
- CNC double column machining center
- CNC tapping center
This is mainly distinguished according to the usage scenarios of CNC vertical milling machines.
According to the number of motion axes, it can be divided into:
- 3 axis CNC milling machine
- 4 axis CNC milling machine
- 5 axis CNC milling machine
3. How does the CNC milling machine work?
A CNC milling machine is a special machine that uses computer numerical control (CNC) to control the movement of its cutting tools.
This kind of machine is used for shaping and cutting a wide range of materials, including wood, plastic, and metal. The machine is controlled by a computer program that tells it what to do. For example, if you want to cut out a shape from wood or plastic, you’ll need to write a program that tells the machine where to move its cutting tool.
To use a CNC milling machine, you need to know how to program in G-code language.
Or you need to know how to use MasterCam. A program to export the created graphics as G code.
Through the program you can manufacture products of any shape with a CNC milling machine.
4. What is a CNC vertical milling machine?
CNC vertical milling machines are the most common CNC milling machines.
CNC vertical milling machines are exceptionally versatile and are used across all industries, making them the most widely used CNC machines in the world.
CNC vertical milling machines have a vertical structure with a vertical spindle (the axis of rotation of the cutting tool).
The cutter is mounted vertically and the workpiece is cut from the top. For applications requiring extensive top surface machining.
At present, the most commonly used CNC vertical milling machine is a three-axis machining center, which performs three-axis machining based on X, Y and Z axes, and can be divided into table-driven and spindle-driven.
5. What is a horizontal CNC milling machine?
Horizontal CNC milling machine is also called horizontal machining center.
Unlike the CNC vertical milling machine, the spindle of the horizontal CNC milling machine moves downward horizontally.
A Horizontal CNC milling machine is a machine that uses a rotary table to perform precision work and is able to cut, drill, or mill parts and other materials.
It has a spindle that holds the rotating tool and can move it in all directions. The machine also has a chuck or collet to hold the part being machined. The headstock holds the spindle and moves it in all directions.
The worktable on a horizontal CNC milling machine can be rotated horizontally while the piece being machined remains stationary. This allows you to make cuts at any angle on the workpiece without having to change its position or rotate it manually by hand.
6. What is a 3 axis CNC milling machine?
Our most common CNC milling machine is the 3 axis CNC milling machine, which has the highest market share.
A 3 axis CNC milling machine is actually also called a 3 axis machining center.
It consists of three motion axes X, Y, Z.
Among them, the X and Y axes are for horizontal movement, and the Z axis is for up and down movement.
3 axis milling evolved from the practice of rotary filing, and is a milling process that operated on two axes, the X & Y axis.
In 3 axis machining, the workpiece remains still while the cutting tool moves along the three axes to mill the part.
3 axis machining still one of the most widely used techniques to create mechanical parts, and can be used for automatic/interactive operation, milling slots, drilling holes, and cutting sharp edges.
7. What is a 4 axis CNC milling machine?
4 axis CNC milling machine is developed on the basis of 3 axis CNC milling machine.
In fact, the 4 axis CNC milling machine is just a rotary table added to the table of the 3 axis CNC milling machine.
If you only bought a 3 axis CNC milling machine in the early stage, you can also purchase a rotary table to realize the function of 4 axis simultaneous processing.
The 4 axis CNC milling machine can realize the machining of multiple faces of the part in one clamping.
This kind of processing method improves the processing efficiency and reduces the error, which is the choice of many customers.
This adds a rotation about the X-axis, called the A-axis.
The spindle has 3 linear axes of movement (X-Y-Z), like in 3-axis machining, plus the A-axis occurs by rotation of the workpiece.
There are a few different arrangements for 4 axis machines, but typically they are of the ‘vertical machining’ type, where the spindle rotates about the Z axis.
8. What is a 5 axis CNC milling machine?
5 axis CNC milling machine is also called 5-axis machining center, it is the most precise CNC machine manufactured so far.
A 5 axis machining center is an industrial machine that can perform five types of motion and make one part from the result.
It has five axes: X, Y, Z, A and B. The axes are used to manufacture a product in the most efficient manner.
The main purpose is to build complex parts in less time and with greater accuracy and repeatability. The machine’s functions include roughing, finishing, drilling and tapping threads.
There are many types of 5 axis CNC milling machines, as follows:
- Head rotating type
- Table swing type,
- 3+2 type five axis CNC milling machine.
A 5 axis CNC machine has two extra rotary axes which opens the door to an infinite number of machining possibilities.
The types of rotary axis include rotary axes A, B and C which rotates around the X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis respectively.
While these are three extra axes and not two, they’re still considered 5 axes in total.
The combination of the additional axes is machine dependent and can come in any combinations of AB, AC or BC.
9. What are the benefits of a CNC milling machine?
We all know that CNC milling machine is the most widely used CNC machine at present.
You will find that a CNC mill has many benefits over a manual mill.
CNC milling machine can bring you more efficient processing efficiency, you don’t need to equip each milling machine with a worker like manual milling machine.
One worker can operate multiple CNC milling machines at the same time. The high efficiency of CNC milling makes it more profitable.
Proficient in CNC milling, you can customize various fixtures for your CNC milling machine to achieve batch processing of parts.
CNC milling machine is controlled by CNC controller, equipped with servo motor, precision screw and guide rail drive.
Controlled by the program, this enables the CNC milling machine to produce the parts with the least error, and you can get higher precision.
CNC milling machines can realize the processing of multiple surfaces in one clamping, such as 4 axis CNC milling machines and 5 axis CNC milling machines.
The advent of 5 axis CNC milling machines has opened the door to infinite machining possibilities.
A 5 axis CNC milling machine is necessary in the processing of complex parts, such as impellers, which are.
10. What are the core components of CNC milling machine?
CNC milling machine is not a simple machine, it consists of many core components. If you don’t know it, please read on and let’s disassemble it together.
The frame is the foundation of the CNC milling machine, on which the core components of the CNC milling machine are installed.
Different types of CNC milling machine frames are different.
For example, the frame of a CNC vertical milling machine is composed of a column and a base, while the armor of a CNC double-column milling machine is composed of a gantry and a base.
Even the frame of some CNC milling machines is integral.
Screw and guide rail
This is the core component that supports the movement of the CNC milling machine, and its quality directly affects the stability and machining accuracy of the CNC milling machine.
Screws and guides are very difficult to manufacture because they have to be protected from damage and wear over a long period of time.
Therefore, most CNC milling machine manufacturers purchase from suppliers.
Currently, mainstream screw and guide rail suppliers include HIWIN, PMI, THK, Rexroth, etc.
The spindle is the most important part of the CNC milling machine.
All machining tasks are done by the spindle rotation.
There are many types of spindles, which are distinguished according to the transmission form as follows:
- Belt Spindle
- Direct Spindle
- Built-in electric spindle
- Gear spindle
Different types of spindles correspond to different processing scenarios.
For example, direct-coupled spindles and electric spindles are suitable for high-speed machining and geared spindles are suitable for heavy milling.
The spindle also has different taper holes, such as BT, BBT, HSK, etc.
Automatic Tool Changer (ATC)
Automatic tool changer is very important.
Although not required, it is helpful to improve processing efficiency.
It can avoid the need for frequent tool replacement in the actual machining process. Thereby improving the machining efficiency of CNC milling machine.
There are many types of automatic tool changer, as follows:
- Umbrella type
- Arm type
- Jaw type
Different types of ATC have differences in the number of stored tools and the speed of changing tools. Among them, the umbrella type is the slowest, and this method is also being abandoned.
CNC controller is the brain of CNC milling machine.
It controls all the movements of the CNC milling machine.
Different brands of CNC controllers have a great influence on the accuracy of surface gloss.
Servo motors and drivers for CNC milling machines are usually matched with CNC systems.
When people buy CNC milling machines, they will choose the CNC system they are proficient in using.
Currently mainstream CNC system manufacturers include FANUC, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Heidenhain, Rexroth, SYNTEC.
The CNC milling machine spindle will generate a lot of heat during high-speed operation, which requires a cooling system to cool it.
Otherwise, long-term over-temperature operation will cause damage to the spindle.
The cooling system usually has air cooling, water cooling and oil cooling.
Cooling the spindle by injecting coolant/oil into it is currently the most mainstream cooling method.
Each axis of CNC milling machine will move continuously during work.
This requires the support of the lubrication system.
The lubrication system is to provide continuous lubrication for these movements to reduce the wear of the screw and guide rail.
The lubrication system will work intermittently according to the set time.
Chip removal machine
CNC milling machines will continuously produce iron filings during the machining process.
This requires the support of the chip conveyor so that the iron filings can be discharged quickly.
Although not necessary, this can improve processing efficiency and does not require workers to constantly deal with iron filings.
