The Difference Between CNC Machining and 3D Printers

- 2022-03-02-

The field of CNC machining has passed a long-term development trend, and at this stage already has a complete set of specifications, whether it is machine tool spindle, CNC blade socket or operating system software. In contrast, the 3D printing industry lacks such norms at this stage, and the creation of standards is usually not achieved in a short period of time.

As far as the advantages of CNC are concerned, CNC machining in Shenzhen greatly reduces the workload of workers, and does not require complicated processes to process more complex parts. For example, if you need to change the style and specification of the part, you only have to change the part processing program flow, which is suitable for new product development and modification.

Compared with manual machining, CNC machining in Shenzhen has great advantages. For example, the parts produced by CNC machine tools are very precise and accurate; CNC machining can produce parts with complicated appearance designs that cannot be processed by manual machining.

The technology of CNC machine tool processing has been widely promoted. Most machining workshops have the ability to process CNC machine tools. The most common CNC machine tool processing methods in typical machining workshops include CNC machining centers, CNC cars and CNC machine tools EDM lines. cut.

CNC lathe machining is a general term for computer-controlled equipment. It is an intelligent CNC lathe equipped with an automatic program flow control system. It can make the lathe move and process parts according to the programmed program flow.

It integrates new technologies such as mechanical equipment, automation technology, electronic computer, precise measurement, and electronic optics. Basically, it consists of processing program flow medium, CNC machine tool equipment, servo drive driving equipment, CNC lathe main body and other auxiliary equipment.

Through the above summary, everyone should be clear. Sunbright summarizes the following four differences between CNC machining and 3D printers:

1. 3D printing (that is, a kind of rapid prototyping technology) is more playable, and it can print a variety of strange and magical prototypes or commodity models, and the CNC machining of commodity parts is more playable There will be certain limitations. In short, the scope of prototypes produced by 3D printing is more than that of CNC machining of commodity parts. CNC is subject to CNC blade sockets, etc., and its scope is lower than that of 3D printing.

2. One thing that has not been mentioned is that, in fact, 3D printing is not as good as CNC processing of commodity parts in terms of printing overall parts, especially for extra-large parts, it is generally difficult to complete with 3D printing, and CNC machining of commodity parts does not have this problem.

3. The product parts CNC processing prototype production has more advantages in terms of price than 3D printing.

4. The result of the difference between the two is that 3D printing makes you whimsical creations or products that are successfully processed and presented in front of you, while CNC has more advantages in economic development and large and medium-sized prototypes. , we can comprehensively compare
