Computer numerical control machinery, also known as CNC machines, help to make precise measurements and cuts. They are designed to form a specific piece based on plans from a computer. This helps to reduce errors and increase productivity. There is a large variety of CNC machines, ranging from smaller models for home applications to larger models for factories for use in furniture making. As with any production machine, there are many factors to look at when deciding which model to buy.
- A CNC router should be selected based on several pieces of criteria like capacity, material, power, size and weight, and safety.
- CNC routers are quickly becoming a mainstay of industrial production for ease of use an precision.
- Some highly recommended CNC routers are the MTR 3-Axis, the Python XPR, the MR ATC Heavy Duty Line, and the ANDIMAXX Series Moving Table 3-Axis.
“Before operation, the user must either manually code the toolpath of the CNC router or provide CAD blueprints in the form of G-code (or in other machine-specific formats).”
