Different CNC Machine Types (Part Two)

Previously, we began to discuss different types of CNC machines. We covered milling and turning machines, which each offer unique ways to process a workpiece into the idealized product. In this second part, we will continue discussing some different kinds of CNC machines and their unique capabilities.

CNC Cutters: when it comes to cutting, there are a wide variety of instruments used depending primarily on the materials. Plasma cutters utilize a plasma torch to cut through electrically conductive materials such as aluminum and copper. Meanwhile, laser cutters can be used on a wide variety of materials like wood and glass. They also have minimal waste and are widely used. There are even waterjet cutters that use high pressure water to cut almost any material.

CNC Router Machines: these machines use spinning cutting tools to hollow out or carve materials such as wood, plastic, and foam. For creating intricate designs and shapes especially for woodworking, router machines are incredibly useful.
