CNC Lathe

Components of CNC Lathe

There are many components of a CNC lathe machine and they are important to the function of the process. Our machine will differ depending on what type of CNC lathe machine we have and what you are using it to do.

All CNC lathe machines have at least a headstock, carriage, bed and tailstock. Many have stable bearing surfaces that are broad and they work with excellent precision. When the machine is stable it can manufacture parts that meet the requirements for both repeatability and tolerance.

CNC Router

What is CNC Router

Today many fabrication companies are turning towards a technology known as Computer Numerical Control or CNC routing. This trend in turn has made CNC router operators one of the most in demand careers. So the question, what is a CNC router, who uses it and what does it take to become its operator?

A CNC router is a machine milling tool which can accurately carve materials in all three dimensions. The device does so by leveraging the power of a computer to position a tiny tool accurately along three different axes while simultaneously spinning that tool at upwards of 20,000 revolutions per minute.

By the computer backing system, a CNC router is not only capable crafting intricate works such as fine wooden mantel pieces, but it is also highly valued orthopedic supplies.
