Stone CNC Machining Center VS. Stone CNC Router
In general, we can distinguish the stone CNC design center from the stone CNC router from the following several aspects: function, size, types, power, speed, precision, and application.
The appearance and size are the most intuitive factors that distinguish the CNC stone milling center from the CNC stone engraving machine. Because the stone CNC working center usually has bigger size than the ordinary CNC stone carving machine, except some 5 axis stone CNC routers. For example, the stone CNC cutting and engraving center has the common working area of 2100*4000mm, 3000*1500mm, 3200*2000mm, etc. However, the working table size of a stone CNC router are usually 600*900mm, 1200*1200mm, 1300*2500mm, 1500*3000mm, 2000*3000mm, etc.
As we all know that stone CNC router has many different types, including 3 axis stone CNC router, 4 axis stone CNC router, 5 axis stone CNC machine, 3D stone CNC router, etc. While the stone CNC drilling center cannot be distinguished according to the number of axes. The stone CNC machining types are usually decided depending on the main functions and machine configurations.
In common, the spindle power of the CNC stone cutting machines is generally less than 10kw, such as 3Kw, 5kw, 6kw, and 7kw. While the spindle power of a machining stone CNC center is ranging from a few kilowatts to tens of kilowatts, such as 7kw, 9kw, 15kw, etc.
The traveling speed of a stone CNC router is 25m/min and the maximum working speed is 20m/min. However, the traveling speed and the maximum working speed of a CNC stone machining center are 60m/min and 30m/min. It can be seen from the speed comparison that the speed of a stone CNC working center is much faster than a CNC stone carving machine.
Actually, the stone CNC machine for sale has been mainly used for cutting and engraving stone projects. But the stone CNC machining machinery is an all-in-one machine that integrates stone cutting, engraving, carving, milling, drilling, polishing, and grinding.
The CNC granite/ CNC marble/ CNC quartz machining center is used to complete the processing of a large number of workpieces, large molds, and the materials with high hardness. Besides, it is also suitable for rough machining of ordinary molds. However, the granite CNC router/ marble CNC cutting machine/ CNC stone engraving machine is used to complete the processing of small molds with a small amount. And it is also suitable for low-hardness plates such as copper, graphite, wood, two-color plates, and acrylic plates.
From the machine parameters, you can find that the working accuracy and re-positioning accuracy of the CNC marble processing center is ±0.03. But the working accuracy and re-positioning accuracy of a CNC machine for stone cutting are ±0.05.

Process ing steps of stone CNC machining center
1. Before turning on stone CNC machine center, first, make sure that all connections between the machine tool and the computer are normal. And then, turn on the power supply of the machine tool and the computer. After the system is started, enter the CNC system.
2. After opening the control system, select the "Back to Machine Origin" menu. The machine tool will automatically return to the mechanical origin and correct the coordinate system. In some cases, such as after the last shutdown, the user does not need to perform a mechanical reset operation. They just need to restart and continue the last operation. When the system exits normally, the current coordinate information will be saved. In addition, if the user confirms that the current location is correct, this operation may not be performed.
3. Before processing, the user generally needs to load the required processing program. Otherwise, some functions related to automatic processing are invalid. Select the "Open (F)|Open (O)..." menu, a Windows file dialog box will pop up, from which you can select the drive, path, and file name where the file to be opened is located. After clicking the "Open" button, the processing program is loaded into the system.
4. Determine the origin of the workpiece, and then manually move the X axis and Y axis of stone CNC machining center to the desired origin position on the workpiece. Next, select the "Set the current point as the workpiece origin" menu, or clear the coordinate value of the current position in the coordinate window. So that the current position is the starting point when the processing program is executed.
