CNC Metal Machining

In the industrial manufacturing process known as computer numerical control (CNC) machining, industrial equipment and tools are moved according to pre-programmed computer software to produce the required end product. In order to create any desired 3D items, a variety of complex machinery, including grinders, lathes, mills, and CNC routers, can be controlled by the CNC machining process. When a CNC machine is turned on, the required cuts are programmed into the software and sent to the relevant machinery and equipment, which more correctly completes the pre-defined dimensional jobs to create final metal CNC parts.

In general, metal CNC machining enables machine tool functions to be pre-programmed for speed and location and executed by software in predictable, repeating cycles, all with minimal input from human operators. A 2D or 3D CAD drawing is created for the CNC metal machining process, which is then converted into programming code for the CNC system to execute. The operator runs the program once it has been inputted to make sure there are no coding errors.

What Kind of CNC Machining Do We Use at Zeal 3D?

The number of axes in a CNC machine has an impact on the kind of work it can do, the amount of detail it can slice, and the places on the workpiece it can move. At Zeal 3D, we use modern multi-axis CNC machines that include a wide range of features that increase their utility and functionality. And, these are only effective if the CNC machine can seamlessly move along its axis in order to obtain desired details. At Zeal 3D, we employ 3-Axis, 5-Axis, and 7-Axis CNC machines.

3-Axis CNC Machining

The idea behind a 3-axis CNC machine is that the workpiece stays in place as the cutting tool removes material along the XYZ plane. The 3-axis machine works well for components that don't need a lot of depth or intricacy. The most typical method of producing mechanical components via 3-axis machining is best suited for: milling slots, drilling holes, and cutting sharp edges.

5-Axis Machining

» Read More

According to the concept of 5-axis CNC machining, the respective workpiece can be automatically moved in five different directions at once. The 5-axis machining can create extremely intricate 3D structures, including complicated curved 3D surfaces in addition to planar compound angled features, enabling us to create items that are typically only possible through the use of molding techniques.

7-Axis Machining

The 7-Axis CNC machines are capable of manufacturing long, slim, and intricately detailed pieces. In a 7-Axis machine, the seven axes that are involved are the standard right-left, top-down, and back-front axes, followed by axes for tool spinning, part rotation, tool head rotation, and movement for clamping, reclamping, or releasing the part. This significant degree of mobility without the use of post-fabrication processes has increased the precision of the final product.

CNC Turning

In the CNC turning process, material bars are rotated while being held in a chuck, allowing the material to be removed till the ideal design is achieved. Since the desired shape is obtained by removing material, this method is sometimes referred to as the subtractive machining process. With the computer numerical control (CNC) turning process, the material is removed from a rotating workpiece by placing a cutting tool against it. Materials, including wood, metal, and plastic, can be cut effectively using different types of CNC machines or turning centers.

Gantry Milling

The gantry milling machine sometimes referred to as gantry milling, is a mill with a long horizontal bed and a gantry frame that aids in carrying out milling operations. The surface can be milled on the gantry milling machine at once using various milling cutters. In this method, production efficiency and processing accuracy are both fairly high.

CNC Machining Capabilities

With different degrees of complexity and scale, CNC machines can create a wide variety of industrial components and products. The size of the products you can make with CNC machines is, however, subject to several restrictions and limitations. The work envelope of the machine essentially dictates what dimensions a CNC milling machine can create up to. At Zeal 3D, we offer the maximum building possible, which is up to 1200x500x500mm, in other terms, 1200mm (47′′) X by 500mm (19′′) Y by 500mm (19′′) Z.
