AC's sample

CNC Precision machining and milling:
The introduction of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) in machine shops radically changed the manufacturing industry.
cnc milled part
Curves are as easy to cut as straight lines, complex 3-D structures are relatively easy to produce, and the number of steps that required human action have been dramatically reduced thus saving time in money in cnc shop. With the increased automation of manufacturing processes with precision 5 axis CNC machining, considerable improvements in consistency and quality have been achieved in modern machine shops.

Cnc Automation reduces the frequency of errors and provides machine shop operators with time to perform additional tasks. Automation also allows for more flexibility in the way parts are held in the manufacturing process and the time required to change the machine to produce different components.



Haas milling Haas UMC 750 rewiev: We all know about vertical and horizontal cnc machining centers, but the newest innovation from Haas Automation is their Universal Machining Center know as the UMC-750. The machine is a 5-axis 40-taper vertical machining center with an integrated dual-axis trunnion table with travels of 30″ x 20″ x 20 suited for most machine shops

The UMC-750ís dual-axis trunnion table can position parts to nearly any angle for 5-sided (3+2) machining, or provide full simultaneous 5-axis motion for contouring and complex cnc machining. The trunnion provides +110 and -35 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity, and the 630 x 500 mm table features standard T-slots and a precision pilot bore for fixturing.

UMC 750 Interior ViewThe machineís 8100-rpm inline direct-drive spindle is powered by a 30-horsepower vector drive system. For cnc machine shops wanting higher spindle speeds, an optional 12,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle is available. Both spindles yield 90 ft-lb of cutting torque. Wireless Intuitive Probing System, second home button, color remote jog handle, 1 MB program memory, 15" color LCD monitor, USB port, memory lock keyswitch, rigid tapping and 75-gallon (284 liter) flood coolant system.

This cnc machine is definitely one to watch. Stay tuned…

Top Androit machinist apps You can use in cnc shop:

machinist app
Milling Speed and Feet
Developer: M Star
The title says it all, but dig deeper and the nice thing about this cnc app is the ability to save your machineís max RPM, max IPM and max HP. With this information stored, simply plug in some details about your cutter and the type of material you want to cut in your cnc schop and the app figures out your starting figures for RPM, feedrate, radial and axial DoC and required HP. Itís up to you to verify and tweak the machining numbers for your application. Overall, very nice app. Hereís a link to the app
Machinistís Calculator
Developer: Trades Math Calculator
We may have saved the best for last. While the other apps weíve covered offer basic F&S calculations, this one also solves common trigonometry in an easy to use format. It even provides X-Y coordinates for bolt hole circles. Yes, other apps are free and although this one will cost, we feel itís definitely worth every penny to use in a machine shop. Good cnc machine developers need to be supported and TMC definitely got this one right. The link to this app.
