There are two main types of machining: manual machining and CNC machining.
1. Manual machining refers to the method of machining various materials by manual operation of mechanical equipment such as milling machines, lathes, drilling machines and sawing machines by mechanical workers. Manual machining is suitable for small batch, simple part production.
2. CNC machining (CNC) means that mechanical workers use CNC equipment for machining. These CNC equipment include machining centers, turning and milling centers, wire EDM equipment, and thread cutting machines. Most machining shops use CNC machining technology. By programming, the position coordinates (X, Y, Z) of the workpiece in the Cartesian coordinate system are converted into a programming language. The CNC controller of the CNC machine tool controls the axis of the CNC machine tool by recognizing and interpreting the programming language, and automatically removes the material as required. , thereby obtaining a finished workpiece. CNC machining processes workpieces in a continuous manner, making them suitable for high-volume, complex-shaped parts.
