What is the difference between CNC milling machine and CNC lathe? What are the advantages?

 CNC milling machines and CNC lathes are two of the most commonly used CNC machines today. When machining, the process of milling and turning looks very similar (i.e. metal removal). However, there is actually a big difference between the two.  Turning means machining on a lathe. The machining principle is that the workpiece is rotated …

Comparison of turning and milling

Turning and milling are two typical types of cutting operations. Cutting is a method of using tools to cut and machine various materials such as metals, plastics and wood into a desired shape. It is a processing method to remove chips from the base material and belongs to “removal processing”. During cutting, the tool scrapes …

The difference between turning and milling

Most of the workpieces with rotary surfaces can be machined by turning, such as internal and external cylindrical surfaces, internal and external conical surfaces, end faces, grooves, threads and rotary forming surfaces. The tools used are mainly turning tools. The “milling process” is to fix the blank and use the high-speed rotating milling tool to …

The difference between 3+2 positioning machining and 5-axis cNC machining

What is 3+2 positioning machining 3+2 machining technology is also known as positioning 5-axis machines because the fourth and fifth axes are used to determine the orientation of the tool in a fixed position rather than for the duration of the machining process. The principle of 3+2 positioning machining is essentially the implementation of a …

What is the difference between 4-axis cNC machining and 5-axis cNC machining?

Multi-axis CNC machining CNC milling involves the use of rotating tools to remove material. Either the workpiece remains stationary and the tool moves onto the workpiece, or the workpiece enters the machine at a predetermined angle. The more axes of motion a machine has, the more complex and faster the forming process becomes. In four-axis …

What are the selection requirements for the shaft machining process?

Shafts are generally manufactured from rolled round steel or forgings by cutting process. Shafts with small diameters can be manufactured from round steel bars; for important, large diameters or shafts with large variations in step diameter, forgings are mostly used. To save metal and improve processability, large diameter shafts can also be made hollow and …

Research on the design of 5-axis CNC machining programs

 The programming regulations of CNC machining require not only the calculation of linear motion, but also the coordination of the stroke inspection of its rotation angle, the rotational motion of props or the error checking of non-linearity and other calculations related to it according to the production needs, and the traditional manual programming has certain …
