What is CNC Routing?

CNC routing is a powerful, versatile technology that rapidly changes how products are made. Whether you are looking for a production-level solution for your factory or need a home-level solution for creating your custom projects, CNC routing services Perth can open up a whole new world of possibilities.

What Exactly is CNC Routing?

Computer Numerical Control(CNC) routing is a technology that has revolutionized the way manufacturing is done. It is used to control the movement of various industrial equipment for machining parts and components. The most commonly used type of CNC routing is the CNC router, which is used to cut and shape materials like wood, plastics, and metals.

How Does CNC routing work?

The CNC router uses a computer to provide the exact specifications of a design or model, which is then translated into the movement of a router and its tools. With sophisticated software and precision motors and bearings, the router can carve intricate designs, curves, and grooves into materials with high accuracy. The data that is used to control this movement is entered into the computer by the user. Once the desired end product is determined, the CNC router performs the task with precision.

CNC routers are available in three styles

CNC routers are available in three styles, depending on the amount of movement they will have during operation.

  • Gantry style router: This is a large machine that has a base and several axes (X, Y and Z). It is typically used for machining large parts or requiring great precision in their cutting operations.
  • X-Y table style router: A small machine with an upper platform holding two rails that rotate around each other to create an X-Y table for machining parts with fine features such as holes or slots. The motor drives one axis while the other axis is controlled by hand movement from an operator at either end of this type of machine. Because this type of equipment doesn’t require any moving parts except those needed to support its frame structure, it’s often referred to as “beltless” or “closed loop” technology because there aren’t any moving parts inside it aside from those required by its construction itself.
  • Rotary CNC router: It uses a 4×8 rotary table to provide a reliable 4th axis or 5th axis for rotary cutting and indexing to create cylindrical/round parts.
