What is the CNC machining?
It refers to subtractive manufacturing progress that builds parts by removing needless material from a solid block of material by using CNC machines.
CNC machines are also called “computer numerically controlled machines”，it is an automated machine including a program control system. CNC milling machine and CNC lathe machine are the two most common types.
What are the types of CNC machines?
CNC machines are the machine that operates on a variable number of axes along the three linear axes as X, Y, Z.
Based on the degrees of freedom a machine can make cuts in, there are 2-axis, 3-axis, 4-axis, 5-axis, 6-axis, 7-axis, and 8-axis CNC machines. Among them, 3-axis and 5-axis CNC machines are the most common types.
A 3-axis machine moves in the x y and z-axis, it is the most effective for relatively simple parts machining.
A 5-axis machine can move in these three additional linear axes along with two more rotational axes, this enables them to make higher precision and more complex work.
At RapidDone, we have inhouse 5-axis machines in our Chinese factory and offer precision 5 axis CNC machining services.
What are the common CNC machining materials?
CNC machine has a very strong machining capability. It can cut almost all the materials in the world, covering both metal material and plastic material.
• Aluminum Series: Aluminum2024, Aluminum5052, Aluminum6061, Aluminum7075
• Steel Series: Steel 1080, Stainless Steel 304, Stainless Steel 316, Stainless Steel 416
• Titanium Series: Titanium Grade 2, Titanium 6Al-4V
• Copper Series: Brass, Bronze, Copper
• Other metal materials: Zinc, Magnesium
The plastics cover full range types, there are ABS, PC, ABS+PC, PA6, PA66, PVC, PS, POM, PMMA, Acrylic, Teflon, DHPE, HDPE, PPS, PEEK, PEI, PET, PAGF30, PCGF30, PP, and more.
RapidDone is a traditional manufacturing factory from China, we know that good material is the key to a quality machined part.
We have good quality control of the material. We source the finest raw materials from the market, ensuring the products we produce have the highest level of integrity and quality.
How to select machining material correctly?
A successful project should consider a lot of parameters including material selection, machining parameter setting, finishing selection, and more. Among them, material selection is the first step but also an important step.
During the project, the designer defines the important material characteristics of the design, includes hardness, rigidity, chemical resistance, heat treatability, thermal stability. However, a lot of design allows flexibility that won’t compromise quality.
To make a correct selection, it should consider both cost and quality. We suggest a dialogue with engineers, the engineers should into the alternative material and select the best cost-saving material while maintaining the design quality.
What are our CNC Machining Tolerances?
The tolerance refers to the amount of deviation in a specific dimension of a part. This parameter defines the dimensional accuracy and it is a must parameter for a drawing.
In RapidDone, we have both normal CNC machines and high precision machines in our Chinese factory. This enables us to make parts with a wild range of tolerance.
We follow the tolerances standard according to DIN ISO 2768-1, the linear dimension is showed in the table below.
However, we can work with you to achieve tighter values as needed. Depends on your technical drawings, tolerances up to 0.020mm are available at RapidDone.
You can contact us for quick advice if you have a tighter tolerance requirement.
How to define tolerance for your machined parts correctly?
When engineers define the tolerance, they consider several parameters such as the form, fit, and function of a part.
It is a principle that tolerance precision is in line with cost. When we use a high tolerance machine to make high precision parts, the price is normally higher than the other parts. Therefore, it is more proper to try to submit a tolerance as low as possible as long it does not compromise quality.
What are CNC Machined Part Surface Finishes?
Surface finish refers to a measure of the overall surface texture. It is characterized by surface roughness, the surface lay, and the surface waviness.
Surface finishes are the final step but it is an important process. It creates a desired surface property for cosmetic, corrosion resistance, wears resistance, and more.
RapidDone offers a wild field of surface treatments to fulfill your specific requirements.
Below is a quick summary of the most common types.
This finish comes from the CNC machining progress directly and results in surface roughness of 125 uin. Therefore, it is the most cost-saving finish, offers the fastest turn-around time for parts.
However, it leaves minor visible tool marks on the surface, so people have to apply another finish if we want minor visible in not accepted.
Type II and Type III Anodizing Finish
Anodizing is the more common finish for Aluminum components and titanium components.
This finish provides excellent uniform, corrosion-resistant coating, gives a very good protective layer for the part.
Normally, the thickness of the coating can be produced from 25μm to 125μm.
A lot of colors can be dyed after this anodizing, there are clear, black, red, gold color, and more.
Bead Blast Finish
Bead blast finish refers to a light matte texture. It is created by blowing small glass beads against the surface of the machined parts.
With this finish, people use it to remove the visible tool mark.
At the same time, it can be used to create a different matte texture to achieve different cosmetic requirements.
Powder Coating Finish
This finish refers to the complete manufacturing process by creating a durable and strong resistant layer on surfaces.
There are two steps: the painting step and the baking step.
The painting step is to create a layer on the part surface by spraying the powdered paint onto the targeted surface first.
The baking step, on the other hand, is to put the painted part into an oven for baking under high temperatures. This baking process can make the painting to be attached on the surface firmly.
Inside our factory in China, this can be spayed into different colors for your cosmetic requirements, including black, white, silver, and more.
What cost-effective CNC machining tips do you recommend?
As a professional Chinese CNC machining manufacturer for over ten years, we have done thousands of projects and accumulate a lot of machining tips.
Below are some of the important tips.
Make a correct selection For Material
The material takes a big role in the whole part cost, it is important to consider a lower-cost option if possible.
For instance, aluminum is always a better option than stainless steel by comparing material cost and machining time cost.
Try to use a lower Tolerance
The tight tolerances lead to high costs for most of the machined parts, especially when the parts are difficult for machining.
Therefore, an engineer should check more for the technical notes and try to specify a lower tolerance if possible.
Keep part design simple
It is well known that big size and complexity features consume more machining time, drive up the cost accordingly. Therefore, it is wiser to design a shorter and simpler part.
For example, undercuts are not good for machining and lead to more machining time. Therefore, it can save cost if keep the undercut amount as small as possible.
Meanwhile, compared with raised text, the engraved text is easier cut. Thus, ensure that you always choose the engraved text.
Try to reduce workpiece setups
This tip can help you to produce a tighter tolerance part and make more cost down.
Consider a bigger cutter
A bigger and shorter bit can lead to a higher cutting efficiency, so it is ideal to try to use a bigger cutter for the machining process.
Try to avoid thin walls
There are two disadvantages to machining think walls. First, it raises the rate of damaging the part through vibrations. Secondly, it has to use low cutting depths for thin wall features, this leads to an increase in machining times and costs.
Stick to standard tool sizes
It can save machining time when the part features correspond to common tool diameters. Besides, it is suggested to maintain the same hole diameter when designing a machined part, this can reduce tool changes and leads to a faster process.
Avoid deep cavities
There are two reasons for this tip. First, it asks for specialized tooling once the cavities are 4X deeper than the tool diameter, this specialized tooling adds more cost for the machined parts.
At the same time, it takes more machining time and cost for a deeper cavity.
Avoid deep threads
To keep low thread depths, it can avoid the use of non-standard tools and reduce machining costs.
