What is CNC precision machining good to use for?

July 6, 2022

Currently, the precision CNC machining industry plays an important role in economic development. The mechanical industry serves products that provide practical benefits to people's lives.

 

What is Precision CNC Machining?

 

Mechanical processing is a specialized term in the mechanical industry, which refers to all operations using machines, technology as well as the use of physical principles to create a finished product with high accuracy, and application good for human life.


Precision mechanical processing is a machining operation that uses a system of modern, high-precision equipment and machines such as saws, grinders, drill press, milling machines, etc., along with high-speed robots as it delivers high capacity and precise technique to work. Precision mechanics apply to materials such as glass, graphite, steel, stainless steel, plastic, etc.

 

Classification of the Mechanical Processing Industry

 

Workpieceless machining technology: This is a form of deformation machining, using pressure, also known as hot machining. In daily life, this form appears quite common such as casting, hot stamping, welding, rolling, drawing, pressing, etc.


Workpiece processing technology: includes operations for cutting, trimming, milling, planing, drilling, grinding, etc.


Other processing technology group: includes the remaining types of processing such as spark machining, ultrasonic machining, CNC machining, laser machining, CNC turning, etc.

 

Products of the Precision Mechanical Industry

 

Products of mechanical processing can be found in most items in daily life. These items can range from simple to complex. And mechanical processing is the technology to create these products like custom bottom brackets.


Simple products from mechanical processing can be listed in life and the family: interior decoration, kitchen appliances, and household appliances.


Complex products that require high precision are good to use in the automotive, dental, military, medical, and aviation industries such as machine parts in automobiles, aircraft or satellite devices, and equipment for medical use. There are many, many products of the mechanical processing industry that we can list.

 

The Concept of CNC Machining

 

CNC stands for the phrase Computer Numerical Control refers to lathe systems, mechanical engraving machines controlled by computers.


A technology developed in the late 1940s – early 1950s in the MIT Servomechanism laboratory.


Operated by computer control, CNC machines can easily cut and trim metal whether curved or straight, even hollow inside the workpiece, trimming precise patterns.


Because it is programmed and controlled by a computer, the accuracy of CNC is said to be absolute compared to the design, the products processed by CNC machines have very sharp cutting lines and high aesthetics.

 

Advantages of CNC Precision Mechanics

 

It does not require workers' skills but still increases processing productivity, thereby reducing the cost of hiring workers.

Some materials are good to use a lot in precision mechanical processing

 

Precision mechanical processing is now very important to businesses because the production process uses high-tech machinery.


This industry requires workers and engineers to have experience and good skills. To make precision mechanical products, the materials must also be carefully selected to match. Here, we would like to share some types of materials good to use in precision mechanical processing the most.


Iron

Iron is a metal extracted from iron ore deposits and we can hardly find it in its free form. To obtain free iron, impurities must be removed by chemical reduction. Iron is good to use in the production of cast iron and steel.


The demand for mechanical machining is currently high, so iron accounts for about 95% of the total volume of metal produced in the world. Iron has the advantages of low price, good bearing capacity, high ductility, and hardness, so the required iron processing is difficult to replace.


Precision mechanical processing from iron for use in automobile manufacturing, framing for construction and ship hulls, etc.

 

Use of Steel in Precision CNC Machining

 

Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon (less than 2.14%) and some other elements are added. Steel has two types: carbon steel and alloy steel.

Because steel has many types, it is good to use in many different fields. Therefore, the demand for precision mechanical processing of steel for use in construction, shipbuilding, etc. is increasing day by day.


Cast Iron

Cast iron is an alloy of iron and carbon, adding some elements such as Si, Mn, P, S, Cr, Ni, Mo, Mg, Cu... In which, the carbon content is greater than 2.14%.

People often use cast iron for mechanical processing on-demand for machine parts with complex shapes: machine shafts, machine casings, gears, gears, bearings, rolling shafts, etc.


Cast iron is divided into two types: white cast iron and graphite cast iron. Each type has different ingredients and characteristics.

 

Stainless Steel in Precision CNC Machining

 

Stainless steel, also known as stainless steel, is an alloy of iron in which there is at least 10.5% chromium. Stainless steel is often less discolored and corroded than ordinary steel.


Stainless steel has the advantage of being durable, stainless, and resistant to temperatures of about 12000 degrees Celsius, good cold resistance as well as easy processing.


Stainless steel is widely applied from simple furniture to complex interior architecture. Today, stainless steel CNC cutting is good to use by many businesses to make the most perfect products.


Some other materials good to use for mechanical processing are ferrous metals, hard metals, non-ferrous metals, etc. Depending on the requirements and each type of machine part, choose the right material.

 

Other materials

 

In addition to the materials good to use in CNC precision machining as mentioned above ( iron, steel, cast iron, stainless steel ), the CNC machining industry also processes difficult materials such as glass, plastic, wood, etc. stone, graphite…
