Before learning, let’s first understand what the engraving machine can do and what its working principle is. After understanding it, it will be of great help to future learning.
The engraving machine is divided into 2.5 axis, 3 axis, 4 axis and 5 axis according to the movement axis.
2.5-axis is actually plane engraving. When processing some plane drawings, many customers who have just contacted think that the engraving machine can only do this. In fact, this is wrong. The most important thing is not only the machine itself but also the designer and programmer. Don’t think that looking at things is simple and thinking that it’s also easy to do. You can’t do many things without a little time and experience.
3-axis engraving can actually engrave curved surfaces perpendicular to the Z-axis. For example, the bottom is inclined, semicircular and other graphics. Of course, there is also a fake four-axis machine on the market, which looks the same as a four-axis machine, and can also engrave cylinders. Shaped three-dimensional diagrams, such as Buddha statues, pen-holder reliefs, etc., this type of machine actually pulls out a shaft and changes it to the rotating shaft after aligning the origin of the workpiece, which is different from the real four-axis machine, which is It can rotate the angle, but the fake four-axis machine cannot.
Four-axis machines have one more rotation axis, A-axis or B-axis than ordinary three-axis machines. This can be rotated at any angle, and there are more things to do.
The popular point of the machine is that instead of manual products, the products can be completed in batches and the quality can be guaranteed. You only need to complete the loading and unloading. The others are realized manually through software programming. To complete a product, you need to provide accurate drawing dimensions. The quality of the product is ensured by the programmer according to the technical requirements of the drawing to choose what kind of tool and the depth of the knife, and then the operator will complete the clamping and production of the product. Every step needs to be carefully checked for error, otherwise it will be done. Things are not good either. This is a technical job that requires a rigorous person to complete.
