Everything You Need To Know About CNC Machines


History: CNC machines are electro-mechanical devices that manipulate machine shop tools using computer programming inputs. Did you know? The name “CNC” actually stands for Computer Numerical Control and it represents one of two common methods (3D printing technology like SLA, SLS/SLM, and FDM being the other) to generate prototypes from a digital software file. The first […]

What Types of Motors Are Used on CNC Machines?


Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines control operating tools by converting instructions into actions. When alphanumerical codes are entered into a CNC machine, movement is triggered. Tools attached to the machine include laser cutters, routers and cutting tips. The CNC principle has been used in machines since the 1940s, upgrading with advances in computer technology. CNC […]

Types of CNC Machines


CNC, or “computer numerical control,” refers to how operators and engineers can command the functions of a manufacturing tool or machine through a CNC machine computer programming language called g-code. Developed in the late 1950s, this language instructs the machine how to cut, grind, shape, mold or melt a source material like metal or plastic into whatever finished product the […]

Surface Grinding Machine:Grinding Process, Specifications of Grinding wheel-PDF


Grinding is the conventional finish machining Process used for producing a good surface finish on the components. The abrasive particles present on the surface of a grinding wheel will be acting as a single point cutting tools for removing the material from the workpiece. The cubical or rectangular shape of the abrasive particles used in the grinding wheel will produce an approximate […]

The Complete Guide to Aerospace Engineering


Aerospace engineering is the process of designing, creating, building, and manufacturing anything that flies. Jets, helicopters, and even spaceships are all part of this field. The two main branches of aerospace engineering are aeronautical and astronautical engineering. The former deals with any aircraft that flies within the earth’s atmosphere and the latter deals with anything that […]
