3 AXIS, 4 AXIS & 5 AXIS CNC MILLING:
Milling is an important technique used in CNC precision machining having applications for medical, aerospace, optical, as mechanical parts. Milling uses rotary cutters to remove material from a work piece by feeding the work piece at an angle to the axis of the tool. The axes that a milling machine has, determines the type of work and the locations in which it can be done on the work piece.
CNC Turning is a manufacturing process in which bars of material are held in a chuck or collet and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material to create the desired shape. A turret, with tooling attached is programmed to move to the bar of raw material and remove material to create the programmed result. This is also called “subtraction machining” since it involves material removal. If the centre has both tuning and milling capabilities, such as the one below, the rotation can be stopped to allow for milling out of other shapes.
EDM Wire Erosion
EDM (Electro Discharge Machining) Wire Erosion is a precision engineering process where a work piece is cut through with a strand of wire, it creates electrical sparks between the wire and the work piece, and these electrical sparks cut the work piece. It is a cost-effective method that has incredible accuracy on thicker component parts. Wire cutting machines can cut complex shapes even in tough materials.
Here at Rev 1 Precision, we have a variety of Spark Erosion machines, which are the most efficient machines for dealing with complicated shapes or materials. These machines allow us to add very precise detail to even the hardest of materials.
Surface grinding is a widely used abrasive machining process in which a spinning wheel covered in rough particles (grinding wheel) cuts chips of metallic or non-metallic substance from a workpiece, to produce a smooth finish on flat surfaces. Surface grinding is the most common of the grinding operation. It is a finishing process that uses a rotating abrasive wheel to smooth the flat surface of metallic or non-metallic materials, to give them a more refined look or to attain a desired surface for a functional purpose. Typical workpiece materials include cast iron and mild steel. Other materials are aluminium, stainless steel, brass, some plastics, ceramics and composite materials
Gundrilling is a deep hole drilling process that uses a long, thin cutting tool to produce holes in metal at high depth-to-diameter ratios. Gun drilling is effective in diameters from 1 – 50 mm [0.04 – 2.00 in]. A gundrill tool differs from a conventional twist drill by its unique head geometry; a standard gundrill has a single effective cutting edge that removes chips as it advances into a metal workpiece.
