Machined Die Cast Parts
The process of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is commonly used in the manufacturing sector. It involves the use of computers to various control machine tools, such as lathes, mills, routers and grinders.
While it may look like a regular personal computer, the difference lies in its unique software and control console configuration, which make CNC machining possible.
In order to start machining die castings, the computer must be programmed and customized for the die casting to be machined. This includes adjusting the feed rate, coordination, location and speeds.
This is very precise and is very useful in the die casting industry due to the large volumes that need to be machined. CNC can operate 24/7 and only needs to be maintained in proper working condition to to continue to machine die casting parts.
To begin the CNC machining process, a 2D or 3D CAD drawing is required. This drawing must contain a special code that the CNC machine can read. Once an initial test is run, full production can begin. This is a very efficient process, with little or no supervision required.
One of the primary advantages of using CNC machining versus manual machining is the ability to produce a more precise die casting part. With CNC machining, even the most complex shapes can be easily produced and repeated time again.
