Different CNC Machine Types (Part One)

CNC machines have helped revolutionize the manufacturing industry through automating various machine processes while still tailoring to specific requirements and needs. To do all this, comes various applications and machine types. In this first part, we will begin to discuss some different kinds of CNC machines and their unique capabilities.

CNC Milling machines: these machine types utilize rotating cutting tools to remove materials from a piece to create complex shapes and features. There are horizontal, vertical, and multi axis milling machines which all offer different orientations and capabilities for the workpiece.

CNC Turning machines: are also known as lathes, these machine types are used primarily to produce cylindrical parts such as rods and shafts. These are done through rotating a piece while cutting tools remove materials to produce the ideal shape. They can also perform operations such as drilling and threading as well as facing and turning with great precision.
