CNC machining development trends in the Future

Mar 04, 2020

CNC Machining is a manufacturing process where computers run programs that control how the machines will manufacture parts. These CNC Programs using CNC Software can control everything from the motions the machine makes to spindle speed, turning coolant on or off, and much more. The computer language used to program CNC Machines is called “G-Code”.

CNC machined parts are in high precision and quality, as well as repeatability. CNC machining can produce parts with complex shapes that cannot be done manually. this technology has now been widely promoted. The most common CNC machining methods in typical machining workshops are CNC milling, CNC turning and CNC EDM wire cutting.

In CNC machining industry, in order to improve the utilization of machine tools and reduce labor costs, automation is becoming more and more attention and concern. At the same time, through the development of software, the machine can be extended to operate functions, and the production schedule can be economically arranged under the condition of small production batches and short delivery cycles. In addition, increase the power of the machine tool so that it can meet the diverse needs and broaden the range of specifications of grinding tools. The positioning and clamping of the parts during the machining of the cavity in order to enable the workpiece to be quickly and correctly clamped on the machine tool, and it is not necessary to correct one by one during processing.

The development of CNC machining in the future is mainly reflected in three aspects:
The development of application software: Now the factory hopes that the super 
highly-automatized of the grinding process, no matter the different production volume, the key point is to achieve flexibility. Luo Baihui, the secretary general of the International Mold Association, said that the work of the tool committee of the association in recent years has included the establishment of an automatic loading and unloading system of tools and grinding wheels to achieve unattended or minimized care during the grinding process.

• Why is demand for application software increasing rapidly? because the high-level workers with capable of manually grinding complex tools are on the decrease. Hand-made tools are difficult to meet the cutting speed and accuracy requirements of modern machine tools, and it will reduce the quality and consistency of the cutting edge. when manual grinding, the tool rests on the supporting piece, and the grinding direction of the grinding wheel points to the cutting edge, which will cause edge burrs.

• Automation: When a tool manufacturer produces a new tool, it is highly efficient due to the large batch production. But the factory does not have this condition. Only through automation to solve the efficiency problem, an operator can take care of multiple machines to control costs.

• High precision: Many manufacturers take reducing operation time as their primary goal, and some manufacturers attach importance to quality (such as high-precision tool and medical component manufacturers). With the improvement of the production technology of the grinding machine, the newly developed machine must also be able to guarantee strict tolerances and exceptional smoothness.
