As we all know, with the development of CNC technology, CNC woodworking lathes have many advantages compared with traditional lathe hand-held tool processing. Leapion laser compares the advantages of CNC woodworking engraving machine and traditional lathe processing, as follows:

There are some disadvantages in traditional lathe hand-held tool processing:

1. The processing speed of traditional woodworking lathe is slow, and the stability of the lathe is poor and complicated;

2. The processing quality of traditional woodworking lathes is unstable, the surface roughness of the workpiece directly affects the difficulty of the next grinding process, the defective rate is high, and the operation time is also lengthened.

3. Traditional woodworking lathes have high operating requirements, the operator has a long learning time, labor intensity and difficulty are relatively large, and those who get in the process of processing cannot leave the machine;

4. When the part of the workpiece is hard, it is easy to break the workpiece and hurt people, and there is a certain safety hazard.

Compared with traditional woodworking lathes, CNC woodworking lathes have the following 6 advantages:

1. The CNC woodworking lathe is flexible and easy to process

When replacing parts on a CNC woodworking lathe, you only need to reprogram and process new parts. Unlike traditional woodworking lathes, it does not require the manufacture and replacement of many tools, fixtures and measuring tools, and there is no need to re-adjust the lathe. Therefore, the CNC woodworking lathe can quickly change from one part to another, which provides great convenience for single parts, small batches and trial production of new products. It not only shortens the production preparation cycle, but also saves a lot of tool costs.

2. The machining accuracy of CNC woodworking machine tools is high

The machining accuracy of CNC woodworking machine tools is generally up to 0.050.1MM. CNC machine tools are controlled in the form of digital signals. Each time the CNC device outputs a pulse signal, the moving parts of the machine tool move a pulse equivalent (usually 0.001MM), and the machine tool advances The average error of the backlash of the transmission chain and the screw pitch can be compensated by the numerical control device. Therefore, the positioning accuracy of the numerical control machine tool is relatively high.

The necessary measures taken in the structural design of the CNC woodworking lathe and the characteristics of mechatronics determine the stability of the quality.

One is to use ball screw nut structure and anti-backlash structure to minimize mechanical transmission error;

The second is to use software precision compensation technology to further reduce mechanical errors;

The third is to adopt program control processing to reduce the influence of human factors on processing accuracy.


3. The processing quality of CNC woodworking machine tools is stable and reliable

The CNC woodworking lathe is processing the same batch of parts, on the same machine tool, under the same processing conditions, using the same tools and processing procedures, the cutting paths of the tools are exactly the same, the parts are consistent, and the quality is stable.

Compared with traditional CNC woodworking lathes, CNC woodworking lathes are not only suitable for processing slender wood, but also rough wood. It has the characteristics of a wide range of soft and hard materials. The surface of the processed workpiece is brighter than traditional woodworking lathes.

4. High processing efficiency of CNC woodworking machine tools

The CNC woodworking machine tool can effectively reduce the processing time and auxiliary time of the parts. The spindle sound speed and feed rate of the CNC machine tool have a large range, allowing the machine tool to perform powerful cutting with a large amount of cutting. Therefore, the processing productivity is much higher than that of general woodworking lathes. Generally, in traditional lathes, only one product can be processed at a time, while the two-axis double-cutter CNC woodworking lathe in the CNC woodworking lathe can process two identical products at the same time.

In addition, the coordinated use of CNC woodworking machine tools and machining center tools can realize the continuity of multiple processes on one machine tool. Processing reduces the turnaround time between processes of semi-finished products and improves production efficiency.

In addition, one person can operate 2-3 CNC woodworking lathes at the same time, which greatly improves the processing efficiency, saves labor and money, and brings good economic benefits.

5. The automation level of CNC woodworking lathes is very high

Compared with traditional lathes, the automation level of CNC woodworking machine tools has been greatly improved. Numerical control woodworking lathes do not require workers to operate the equipment at all times. After the CNC machine tool is adjusted before processing, input the lathe computer program and start it, and the machine tool can automatically and continuously perform processing until the end of the processing. This greatly reduces manpower and greatly improves delivery accuracy.

6. The modernization level of CNC woodworking lathes is high

The processing of CNC woodworking machine tools can accurately estimate the processing time in advance, standardize and modernize the tools and fixtures used, and it is easy to realize the standardization of processing information.

What the operator has to do is program input, editing, parts loading and unloading, tool preparation, machining state observation, and parts inspection. The labor intensity is greatly reduced, and the labor of machine tool operators tends to be intellectual work. The working environment is safer and cleaner than traditional lathes.
