CNC wood router, do you know what it can be used for? Do you know what the CNC wood router can do?

If you want to know what the CNC wood router is used for and what the CNC wood router can do? You must not miss this article. First of all, we have to understand what wood CNC machine is, how the CNC engraving machine is processed and how it works, what types of engraving machines are, what processing advantages of engraving machines, and so on. Today, the editor of Blue Elephant CNC will share three parts from the engraving machine itself, the application industry of the engraving machine and the specific case of the engraving machine. Hope to help friends who are interested in engraving machine.

Part1. CNC Wood Router Knowledge

1.1. What is the CNC wood router?

CNC wood router is CNC router by computer-controlled related to the hand-held router and used for engraving various materials, such as wood, Acrylic, PVC board, MDF, marble, rubber board, plastics, glass, and foams, crystal, etc. And CNC router is also a combination of engraving and milling from the processing principle. And the CNC router is very similar in concept to a CNC milling machine. Instead of routing by hand, tool paths are controlled via computer numerical control.

1.2. What types of CNC machines are commonly used?

Firstly,i want to say the ordinary CNC wood router who is also called entry-level wood CNC machine. With the features of low cost, simple operation and easy maintenance, this CNC wood router is always favored by users at home and abroad. The CNC wood router mainly performs some plane processing on the board. If you are just doing flat machining on some plates, this three-axis engraving machine is definitely your ideal choice.

Secondly, i will introduce the 4 axis CNC router. Compared with the ordinary CNC wood router, this type of 4 axis CNC router refers to the CNC machine whose processing path include X, Y, Z, and A axes, and whose spindle can swing left and right. Because the spindle of this type of engraving machine can swing left and right, the spindle can approach the work piece from multiple different angles and efficiently process three effective processing surfaces. It can realize not only the plane engraving machine, but also the three-dimensional engraving of irregular work pieces. And this type of 4 axis CNC machine is suitable for common work piece, three-dimensional work piece, complex work piece and irregular graphics processing.

Thirdly, i will introduce the ATC CNC router. Compared with the traditional manual tool change production method, this type of ATC CNC engraving machine has an independent tool magazine with different tool bits. It can automatically change the required tools by computer program control without stopping work during processing. And it can complete a series of cutting, hollowing, grooving, punching, milling grooves, milling planes and other different processing needs. Therefore, both the processing quality and processing efficiency have been greatly improved. Therefore, this type of ATC CNC router is the first choice for enterprises with large production volume.

Fourthly, Then i will introduce the rotary axis CNC router. Compared with ordinary engraving machines, rotary axis CNC machine refers to these CNC router machines with rotary device. During the processing of the rotary axis engraving machine, it is not necessary to repeatedly rotate and process the work piece manually to reduce the number of clamping times and complete the processing of the work piece at one time. And this type of rotary axis CNC router mainly process cube or cylindrical work pieces.

Fifthly, i will introduce the 5 axis CNC router. This type of 5 axis CNC router which have at least five coordinate axes (three linear coordinates and two rotation coordinates) on a machine tool, and different coordinate axes can be coordinated and moved simultaneously for processing under the control of a CNC system. This type of 5 axis CNC equipment has the advantages of high technology content and high machining accuracy, and is specially used for the machining of complex curved surface work pieces.

Sixthly, i will introduce the multi-head CNC router. This kind of wood CNC machine whose spindle can be customized according to the user's specific processing needs. Multiple spindles can be processed simultaneously to meet the needs of batch processing of products. Especially when processing the same pattern on the board, multiple spindles process at the same time, which greatly improves the processing speed of the board. One machine can complete the production of multiple machines at once, which greatly improves the production efficiency, and the processed products have better consistency. In the case of a small production volume, a single spindle can be independently processed, and the production cost can be controlled reasonably and effectively. Therefore, multi-head CNC router is mainly designed for users with small product size and large processing volume.

Seventhly, i will introduce the stone CNC router. This kind of stone CNC machine is suitable for the carving and engraving of various types of stone, jade, crystal, wood, man-made materials, synthetic materials, etc. The main functions includes embossing, lettering, hollowing out, cutting, seamless stitching, surface treatment, table milling and so on. And it is widely used in inscriptions, garden engineering, large-scale sculptures, handicraft carvings, home improvement, film and other industries.
Then, i will introduce the foam CNC router. Foam CNC router is also called EPS CNC wood router for processing foam. Relative to heavy-duty metal cutting machine, foam engraving machines are lightweight CNC machine. And compared with ordinary engraving machines, this type of foam engraving machine has a larger processing size and processing stroke. Especially in the mold industry such as automobile foam molds, gypsum molds, paraffin molds, large ship wooden molds, aviation wooden molds, propellers, and train wooden molds, this type EPS CNC router is very popular.

Finally, i will introduce the mini CNC router. Mini CNC router, also called small CNC router and desktop CNC router. Compared with other ordinary CNC machines, this small CNC wood router has a relatively small size. This type of small engraving machine has a compact structure and a small footprint, so it is easy to move and use. And this small CNC router adopt advanced industrial numerical control operation software and typesetting processing software to complete various processing requirements on small work piece of users. Therefore, mini CNC router is welcomed by woodworking enthusiasts and the advertising industry.
