In fact, nowadays CNC skills are inseparable from CNC lathe. To understand in a nutshell, CNC lathe is to add a CNC system to the machine tool. Of course, CNC machine tools do not just add a CNC system. Numerical control skills are the most advanced processing equipment used by the current machining profession. It includes various categories such as CNC lathes, CNC milling machines, CNC milling and boring machines, CNC machining centers, and CNC wire cutting. The so-called numerical control skills are the use of digital program signals to control the machining process of machine tools through computers.
A machine tool is a machine that makes a machine and a machine that can make the machine itself. Turning, milling, planing, grinding, boring, drilling, electric spark, shearing, bending, laser cutting, etc. are all machining methods. The so-called machining is to process the metal blank parts into the required shape, including dimensional accuracy and genomic accuracy. The equipment that can perform the above functions is called a machine tool. The CNC lathe is developed on the general machine tool. The CNC lathe is a high-precision and high-efficiency automated machine tool.
A CNC machine tool, in short, is a digitally controlled machine tool, which is an automated machine tool equipped with a program control system. The system can logically process programs with control codes or other symbolic instruction rules, decode them, and then make the machine tool move and process parts. The operation and monitoring of CNC machine tools are all completed in the CNC unit. The CNC unit is the brain of the CNC lathe. What we generally call CNC equipment is mainly CNC lathes and machining centers.
