How digital connects CNC businesses in the age of the pandemic

Traditional CNC business models and organisations are currently under threat. The COVID-19 outbreak has made it clear just how vulnerable the complex, global manufacturing supply chains are.

Case Study: Phase Four Launches Scalable Electric Propulsion (EP) System with Xometry

This innovative California-based aerospace company is revolutionizing space exploration with Maxwell, its mass-producible EP system. Xometry is the manufacturing platform that's bringing its exoskeleton from its 12-page drawing to life.

Diode Lasers in CNC and 3D Printing

Our lasers are mainly plug and play for any 3D printer or CNC machine. They work out of 12-24V and have a TTL wire that has to be connected with PWM and then you are pretty much set.

Diode Laser on your 3D Printer, Perfect Tool for Makers?

3D printers are amazing for makers everywhere, as they enable easy, cheap, and fast progress on projects. They can't do everything though, especially if you want a different material from plastic, you're for the most part out of luck.

2018 Used CNC Machine Price: Average CNC Machine Price

In summary, when you are in the market for a used CNC, it really pays to do your research. A good used CNC machine can make you money for many, many years when properly selected and maintained.

Future Forward: CNC Machines

By Curt Doherty CEO of CNCMachines.net. When it comes to developments in modern manufacturing technology, I think we can agree that the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine ranks right up there at the top.

Machine Shops Must Prepare for Industry 4.0

It's time to upgrade your technology. Industry 4.0 will change the face of your CNC machine shop for the better. This is the future of machine shops. Are you ready?

The Slow Growth of High Speed

High Speed Machining is more than just an interesting idea with a compelling past. The science is out, and the debate is over, implementing High Speed Machining Techniques is a sound economic decision, that decreases costs while increasing productivity and efficiency.

The Rise of 5

Transitioning to 5-axis machining requires both a time and financial investment. But, like all investments, long-term it will pay off. The faster you begin to make the switch, the faster you will start to see the benefits.

Versatile Abrasive Tool for CNC Machining Decreases Cycle and Finishing Time

Flexible hone provides fine surface finish for internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes.

Innovative Hole Drilling Tools Increase Automobile Industry Profitability

With flexible modern CNC manufacturing equipment, any tooling improvements and innovations that are brought to market can be easily integrated. Avoiding a major retrofit that requires huge capital expenditures and tearing up facilities to install new equipment can save manufacturers large amounts of money and improve their bottom line.

New Technology Uses CNC to Drop Metal 3D Printing Costs

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.

3D Printing and CNC Machining Industry Trends

Instead of viewing 3D printing as a replacement to the standard process of CNC machining, those who have successfully merged the two technologies view additive manufacturing as a process that can complement their current operations.

CNC Inspection Software Reduces Time Needed to Machine Composite Parts

PowerInspect has dramatically improved our ability to locate and align parts with complex curved surfaces

Intensive Failure Analysis Optimizes CNC Spindle Performance and Life

Comprehensive failure analysis and detailed documentation are indispensable tools in preventing recurring spindle failures, and can lead to improved performance.
