With the creation and development of the CNC router, computer numerically controlled machines are used in almost any production industry. CNC routers, often controlled by computers, guide the machine to cut the material or machine the product design we need. A wide variety of materials are processed, such as wood, stone, and plastic. Do you know what are the advantages of using CNC routers?
- High precision and accuracy Manual operations require you to be close to the material, but due to manual limitations, errors are inevitable. The CNC router is controlled by computer software that communicates with the router, so it can obtain precise instructions on routing parameters and can guarantee that all subsequent identical engraving jobs will process the material as instructed.
- High repeatability of the processed product Repeatability is much easier with a CNC router than with a handheld router due to the accuracy resulting from automation. the CNC router can engrave the same thing over and over again at the same speed and with the same accuracy.
- Easy to operate The automated CNC router is very easy to use. With some simple training, technicians can learn how to use the CNC router software without having to worry about being trained on how to safely and effectively perform handheld router operations.
- High efficiency The CNC router is very fast and saves a great deal of engraving time. In addition, the use of the CNC system allows work to be done quickly and accurately that would need to be done by multiple CNC technicians using a hand-held engraver, also increasing efficiency.
Uses of CNC router
Because CNC routers can engrave with very hard and sharp tools, in addition to wood and cardboard, CNC routers are also able to engrave acrylic, PVC board, wood, rubber, etc. In addition to this, CNC routers are also capable of engravings very strong and brittle materials, such as density board, marble, glass, and crystal. Of course, as a CNC machine, CNC routers are also often used in the mechanical industry for metal engraving.
All in all, working with a CNC router is much more efficient and convenient than traditional engraving, which has made it extremely widespread in many different industries.
