CNC machines are powerful enough to enable your creativity instincts as an engineer, designer, artist, or even a hobbyist.
It requires right skills, sound knowledge and great amount of efforts/enthusiasm to learn to build and operate a CNC machine.
For one such knowledge imparting session, Competences Factory is pleased to host a workshop on building 3-axis CNC machine – MillTech.
MillTech is an intuitive learning platform to nurture individuals and enthusiasts in manufacturing and automation sector. Our aim is support passionate ones to acquire and practice skills which can differentiate them as professionals.
Computer Numerical Control machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that encompasses the use of computers to governor machine tools. The machine head movement is “choreographed” for a defined pattern in computer software. The process can be used to control a variety of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts.
G-Code is the language used to control CNC machines. Basically it’s written to control the various behaviors of a machine, like the speed, feed rate and coordination.
CNC machining makes it possible to pre-program the speed and position of machine tool functions and run them via software in repetitive, predictable cycles, all with little involvement from human operators. Due to these capabilities, the process has been adopted across all corners of the manufacturing sector and is especially vital in the areas of metal and plastic production. CNC mills, lathes, plasma cutters, electric discharge machines, water jet cutter are amongst the different types of CNC machines available.
Milling is a process that is quite similar to drilling or cutting. Milling utilizes a cylindrical cutting tool that can rotate in various directions. In CNC mills, movement is usually directed across X, Y and Z axis. The tool, in turn, is positioned and guided via stepper or servo motors, which replicate exact movements as determined by the G-code. It also has the capability to create a wide array of shapes, slots, holes, and other necessary impressions that is nearly not possible to make manually with perfection.
