There are many ways to cool down your CNC machine while it’s working, you just need to know what method to use. The first thing you should learn is what types of cooling methods there are to use. You can use lubrication as one of the methods. Another method used is called Flood Cooling. That is the process of dumping water on the bit to make sure that you don’t heat the bit up and ruin it.
- The cooling method depends on many variables, so make sure you know what you want.
- Lubrication is a form that many machines use as their cooling method.
- Flood cooling where the bit is flooded with water or other cooling liquids.
“Flood cooling, also known as wet cooling, is probably the most commonly used cooling technique that involves spraying a constant jet of coolant onto the contact area between the tool and the milled material.”
