CNC MILLING SOLUTION
CNC Milling machines
A CNC, or computer numeric control, milling machine is a piece of computerized workshop equipment that can perform multiple tasks, such as drilling and turning. This machine replaces the need for several individual milling machines. It is given instructions by computer software commands known as numeric control.
What it is used for?
A milling machine is used to shape, round or flatten materials like wood and metal, and it can also cut gears or make slots or square corners on a piece of material. Often automated, milling machines can be positioned in either vertical or horizontal orientation to carve out materials based on a pre-existing design.
These designs are often CAD directed, and many milling machines are CNC-operated, although manually and traditionally-automated milling devices are also common. Milling machines are capable of dynamic movement, both of the tool and the workpiece, and many milling machines can perform multi-axis machining. Because of variations in orientation, operation and application, milling machines have varying functions and different operating principles.

CNC PLASMA CUTTER
CNC Plasma Cutting machine
Which are the parameters that you need to know before you purchase a CNC plasma cutting machine?
Well, you would first need to know the range of materials you’ll be able to cut, and will also define the maximum thickness of material you’ll be able to pierce.
If you’d like to know “What is plasma?
In its simplest terms, plasma is the fourth state of matter. We commonly think of matter having three states: a solid, a liquid, and a gas. Matter changes from one state to the other through the introduction of energy, such as heat. For example, water will change from a solid (ice) to its liquid state when a certain amount of heat is applied. If the heat levels are increased, it will change again from a liquid to a gas (steam). Now, if the heat levels increase again, the gases that make up the steam will become ionized and electrically conductive, becoming plasma. A plasma cutter will use this electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from a power supply to any conductive material, resulting in a cleaner, faster cutting process than with oxyfuel.
So, what is it ideal for?
Plasma cutting is ideal for cutting steel, and non-ferrous material less than 1 inch thick. Oxyfuel cutting requires that the operator carefully control the cutting speed so as to maintain the oxidizing process. Plasma is more forgiving in this regard. Plasma cutting really shines in some niche applications, such as cutting expanded metal, something that is nearly impossible with oxyfuel. And, compared to mechanical mean of cutting, plasma cutting is typically much faster, and can easily make non-linear cuts.
CNC LASER CUTTER
CNC Laser Technology
The power of the laser cutter comes from its ability to cut through a wide range of materials with high precision. Drag-knife cutters — like those on craft cutters and vinyl cutters — can’t penetrate hard and thick materials, while a laser can slice through them like butter. And a CNC router has a hard time creating ultra-sharp details (think about cutting a letter V: the outside edges can be cut away sharply with overlapping passes but the inner point can only be as pointy as the diameter of your router bit). A laser’s beam is so narrow that it can give you that precise detail.
Building structures with laser-cut parts has become a well-defined practice. If you’re looking for a tool that can widen your boundaries, a laser cutter has a universe of possibilities.
CNC KNIFE SYSTEMS
CNC Blade Technology
Not everything can be cut by milling and laser technology, a lot of materials needs to be cut and shaped by the blade. This type of technology concerns fabrics, felt, rubber, non-woven, doormats, plastic in rolls, cartons and cardboard, foams and expanded. The basic operation is similar at the milling but this technology is different because the blade is always directed tangential to the path.
The right tangential orientation is guaranteed by a motor controller in the control system which manages the rotation of the balde. Some materials, typically thinner, provide only tangential fixed blade cutting. When the materials to be cut have a high thickness and are particularly hard, the tangential cutting head can be used in its oscillating versione.
In this case, in addition to rotate following the path tangential, the blade will oscillate at high frequency on its axes. The blades are normally realized by carbide or solid tungsten carbide (HM) for the maximum life and cutting precision. Regarding the flat blades the most important parameters are: the “wedge angle” and “the cutting angle”
CNC HOT WIRE CUTTING
CNC Blade Technology
Cutting wire technology
The CNC foam cutter is a machine controlled by a PC computer capable of cutting any 3D objects out of extruded and expanded polystyrene foams (EPS and XPS). The cutting is performed with a hot cutting wire moving in the vertical and horizontal axes through the use of stepper motors controlled by an electronic controller connected to a PC and controlled with our unique software. This ensures flawless precision, high processing speed, and consistently excellent quality. The cutting wire reaches the temperature of a few hundred Celcius degrees during cutting.
How it works?
Using modern technology, Hot wire CNC cutters allow creating practically any product of the most complicated shape in a fast, accurate and relatively inexpensive way. Hot wire CNC foam cutting machines is used to create display letters, logos (3D Logos), graphics, signboards, labels for indoor and outdoor ads, decor elements, fair stalls, store props & displays, P.O.P. displays, decorations for the theater or cinema, mock-up products, all kinds of packaging, amusement, architectural shapes, large-scale architecture models, thematic props, pipe insulation, preCast concrete molds, columns, and so on.
