Five Precision CNC Cutting Technologies for Machining Parts
Precision CNC Cutting Technologies used to common machining parts manufacturing. Remember we mentioned that how to choose the CNC cutting machining process for CNC machining parts in the last Blog. In fact, some smart manufacturer not only invested these two types of cutting processes in a cutting edge world but also invested other additional three Precision CNC Cutting Technologies for CNC machining parts.
Each one cutting technology has its own advantages and disadvantages. Raw material size, thickness, and heat sensitivity are all considered when choosing the right approach. Of course, they also have some manufacturing factories with advanced cutting through the extreme thermal processor with particles. Anyway, Creatingway always provides advanced cutting technology and the cheapest price to meet our customer requirements for CNC machining parts.
Below are five key CNC precision cutting technologies sharing
Laser cutting which is one cutting process uses the energy of a laser beam to illuminate the surface of the steel plate or Aluminum plate to melt and vaporize the stainless steel. While widely known for its medical applications now, but Carbon dioxide lasers are often used in industrial cutting and welding of CNC machining parts.
In addition to this, other laser applications in metal processing include engraving, scribing, drilling, heat treatment, cladding, and alloying. For example, laser heat treatment can be used to harden, seal, and rework metal surfaces. And it can effective to eliminate warping and fumes by paint coating while retaining precision
Water Jet Machining
Water Jet Machining technique requires mixing water with an abrasive material like garnet, so the whole cost varies are based on the amount of water and materials used and the extent of cleanup required.
In general, water jet machining is often preferred than laser when the material does not respond well to heat. However, when water jet machining cut ticker materials or superalloys, its requirement for tolerance is lower than that of laser cutting (over 0. 002”). These two technologies have significant differences in finishing and prices.
Plasma cutting is another cutting technology. It allows for high precision slicing of metal sheets or plates without chipping and multi-axis cutting.
Plasma also can cut thicker metal materials but the tolerance precision is lower than laser cutting. And for now, Plasma is often used in complex ductwork. Tube cutting, outdoor signs, and artwork, etc. The laser and Plasma have a slight difference in the “ cost per cut”. But more importantly, it depends on the size and material of the part you’re trying to create.
It is mainly cutting some gases materials. Such as oxygen, propane, hydrogen, etc) are mixed together to form a very high heat flame. The oxyfuel cutting is mainly used in low carbon steel and alloys. It can’t be used in cutting stainless steel or Aluminum plate.
EDM which is a unique cutting technique- the electrode and cutting piece never touch each other.
Whether or not EMD is used, it mainly depends on the cutting length, depth, and continuity of the necessary. When your thermal cutting temperature up to 8000-12000 degrees. It can penetrate through any materials, includes carbide, which is several times stronger than steel. At the same time, this price also is higher than other cutting technologies.
Cost, type of the metal, cutting thickness, and precision help to determine which is Precision CNC Cutting Technologies we will use. If you have any parts or projects that need to be cut, welcome to contact us freely.
