Various Types of CNC Operations

CNC, or computer numerical control, is a prevalent production technique utilized in various industrial applications.

FREMONT, CA : CNC machining services encompass various industrial activities, bringing greater accuracy and quickly completing the work. The CNC operations are as follows:

CNC Drilling

The machine creates the drill perpendicular to the workpiece’s surface. It uses a multiple-point arrangement to draught cylindrical holes in the workpiece during the drilling operation. The engineer can design vertical holes with a diameter that is customized for the work.

Additionally, the CNC machine can drill angled holes, although this requires a unique bespoke configuration before generating the holes. Reaming, counterboring, and countersinking are all popular CNC drilling procedures. In comparison to conventional drilling methods, CNC drilling is more precise and provides a faster turnaround.

CNC Milling

Milling machining is a procedure that utilizes multi-point rotating cutting tools to remove material from a piece of metal or another material. In milling, the blank item is inserted into the cutting tool in the direction of the tool's rotation. This is in contrast to the manual procedure, in which the material block is inserted in the opposite rotation direction by the machine.

CNC milling's general processes include shallow cutting, making flat cavities, peripheral milling, and manufacturing deep pits. CNC milling can also be used to create threads and slots.

CNC Turning

The engineer uses a turning machine or a lathe in this operation. In CNC turning, the machine removes material by cutting it with a single-point operational tool. The CNC machine advances the cutting tool linearly into the workpiece, eliminating material from the external border. This technique is repeated until the desired diameter is achieved. This procedure is used to manufacture cylindrical components and is capable of producing both exterior and internal features.

Grooving, thread cutting, drilling, and facing are just a few of the frequent CNC uses. Compared to the traditional approach, CNC turning can complete the job more often, saving time and money.
