1. What is the difference between CNC engraving machine and CNC lathe?

Although CNC engraving machine and CNC lathe are both common CNC mechanical equipment, there is a big difference between the two.

From a structural point of view, although they are equipped with CNC systems, CNC engraving machines are at least three-axis control, while CNC lathes are two-axis control. The CNC engraving machine has a tool magazine, and the CNC lathe uses a tool holder. The functions of the two are relatively similar. They are both used to change the tool when machining the workpiece, but the specific structure is different. The tool holder is an important part of the CNC lathe. It installs various cutting tools, and its structure directly affects the cutting performance and work efficiency of the lathe. The tool holder is divided into turret type and row tool type.

There are more types of CNC engraving machine tool magazines than CNC lathe tool rests, such as disc type, bucket hat type, chain type, flying saucer type, synchronous type, etc. Most of the tool magazines have more tool capacity than CNC lathe tools. The tool capacity of the rack is large.

From the perspective of processing range, the processing range of CNC engraving machine is larger than that of CNC lathe. CNC lathes are mainly used to process rotary parts. The CNC engraving machining center can do a lot, and it is proficient in boring, milling, cutting, reaming and tapping, and the CNC engraving machine has three axes, four axes, and five axes. wide.

3.In terms of programming,the same CNC system is used. The programming of CNC engraving machine and CNC lathe is similar in some aspects. CNC lathe is somewhat similar to three-axis or four-axis CNC engraving machine, but the programming of CNC engraving machine is more complicated. For example, the five-axis CNC engraving machine is very complicated to program because the spindle center changes at any time when the spindle is processing complex surface workpieces.
