Common Types of CNC Machines

There are many types of Computer Numeric Control machines in the market. However, there are some that have stood out and become the common ones that manufacturers use in their production activities.

They include:

CNC MachineCNC Router

CNC routers get used in the cutting materials such as steel, aluminium, wood, compositors, and plastic.

Plasma Cutters

A CNC plasma cutter is a machine that employs plasma torches to cut into heavy material quickly. Its accuracy makes it a preferred choice as it only melts the precise areas one is looking to cut into with ease making the final product cleaner than if you used other CNC machines.

Laser Cutter

The CNC laser cutting machine uses laser beams to cut materials. It works by directing a high power laser onto the material you seek to cut. The laser beam can vaporise, burn, blow away using a jet of gas or melt a surface leaving it with a high-quality finish.

Milling Machines

They drill and cut materials to create components and precision parts that get used in various manufacturing and industrial needs. It is the better choices for CNC cutting machines as it can perform multiple functions such as face and shoulder milling, turning, tapping and drilling.
