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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
Flexible hone provides fine surface finish for internal bores, along with edge breaking of undercuts and deburring of intersecting drilled holes.
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.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.
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.
PowerInspect has dramatically improved our ability to locate and align parts with complex curved surfaces
Comprehensive failure analysis and detailed documentation are indispensable tools in preventing recurring spindle failures, and can lead to improved performance.
The new Axiom Precision AutoRoute Elite Series of CNC routers utilizes the most modern servo-driven technology to advance small-format CNC routing.
Easy Operation CNC control maximizes efficiency and production.
