Maintenance skills of CNC router

1. We should place the control in a well-ventilated place, not in a high-temperature environment. Prevent the electrical components in the control box from malfunctioning due to high temperature.

2. Place the CNC router in a dry and ventilated place. Because this can prevent the fuselage from being exposed to the sun and causing parts and accessories to malfunction.

3. The CNC router machine must be equipped with a reliable voltage stabilizer to ensure the safe grounding of the ground wire. At this point, the engraving machine factory has basically installed and debugged the customer in advance when configuring the control box. It is best to consult before purchasing the machine.

4. Try to transfer files to the engraving machine without using an Internet computer. The computer connected to the network can easily cause the engraving machine to malfunction due to the virus through file transfer.

5. Maintain the machine as soon as possible. For example, add a proper amount of special lubricating oil to the screw rod and the guide rail rack. Many manufacturers are now equipped with manual or electric lubricators, which can realize faster lubrication of the slider and the lead screw, and does not need to be disassembled, and the maintenance is more convenient and quick.

6. Regularly check and clean the guide rail, screw, and other transmission systems. Add or replace lubricating grease and oil to keep the moving parts of the screw, nut, and other parts in a good lubrication state, to reduce the wear speed of the mechanical parts.

7. Do not let the machine work on the same part of the wood engraving machine table for a long time. In order to prevent the transmission device such as the screw rod and the guide rail from contacting the beam for a long time and cannot be reasonably lubricated.

8. Check whether the wires and screws of the CNC router are loose within a certain period of time. It is best to tighten the screws regularly. This can also improve the accuracy of engraving.

9. Do not place sundries (magnetic materials, corrosive items, overweight items, liquids, etc.) on the table or head of the CNC router.

The 3 main points of buying a CNC router

1. Section of CNC router machine type

Because the processing requirements of users are different. Therefore, the choice of CNC router machines is also different. Therefore, we need to choose the right woodworking CNC engraving machine according to our own processing needs.

For example, if your main business is door panel processing, and an ordinary CNC wood router can achieve the ideal processing effect. If you need to engrave various patterns and patterns on the door panel, a tool can not meet your processing needs. Then an ATC CNC router or a multi-process CNC router is your ideal choice.

If you are mainly processing three-dimensional workpieces, then you need a 4-axis CNC router or a 5-axis CNC router. If you are mainly processing cylindrical workpieces, then you may need a rotary axis CNC router.

And if you are mainly aiming at the processing of soft material workpieces such as fabrics, then you need a digital cutting machine. If you are mainly processing hard materials such as stone, then the stone CNC router is your ideal choice.

Of course, if you are processing foam and other materials, then you deserve to have a foam CNC engraving machine. Therefore, we must choose the appropriate woodworking engraving machine model according to our own processing needs and processing materials.

2. Selection of CNC router manufacturer

For CNC router manufacturers, we must first consider the manufacturer’s production strength. Production strength is directly reflected in the CNC machine quality and type of CNC router machines. Therefore, it is very necessary to go to the manufacturer for field inspection if possible. Field inspection can more intuitively inspect the processing effect of the engraving machine. In addition, whether the wood engraving machine manufacturer provides a complete after-sales service system. These services include a series of pre-sales and after-sales services. It is specifically manifested in software training, technical guidance, installation guidance, and usage guidelines. Because the perfect service system allows you to sit back and relax in terms of machine purchase, operation, installation, and maintenance.

3. Selection of CNC router kit

Choice of CNC router format size.

Customers should choose the model of their CNC router according to their business needs and budget. Generally, small-format engraving machines are 600 mm×600 mm and 600 mm×900 mm, and the feed width is 700 mm. Engraving a two-color board is the most basic application of small-format engraving machines, and it is very acceptable. The price of a smaller engraving machine is about the same. However, when engraving two-color plates, it is more troublesome and unnecessary to waste. Large-format CNC engraving machines include 1200 mm×1200 mm, 1200 mm×1500 mm, 1200 mm×2400 mm, 1300 mm×2500 mm, 1500 mm×2400 mm, 2400 mm×3000 mm. And the feed width of the above models is more than 1350 mm. There are organic glass and PVC on the market. The size of the board is 1220 mm×2440 mm, so these models are more suitable for customers who need large-format wood engraving machines.

Choice of the spindle motor.

For the spindle motor of the woodworking CNC router, the higher the power, the better. You need to choose a spindle motor suitable for your own use according to your own materials and processes, to improve production efficiency and save resources.

Generally, low-power spindle motors are mainly used in the advertising industry and fine processing of small crafts. And it is mainly for relief sculpture. Because of its low power, the ability to cut thick materials is relatively poor. And it is not suitable for engraving and milling thick materials.

The general high-power woodworking engraving machine spindle motor is mainly doing cutting, engraving, and milling. Because of its high power, the cutting ability is stronger.

Choice of the drive system.

The drive system of the general woodworking engraving machine can be equipped with two options, namely three-phase stepper motor and servo motor. The servo motor is a closed-loop control. It will measure the speed of the motor in real-time when it is powered on. Because of its large starting torque, the starting speed is fast, and the rated speed can be reached in a short time. In addition, its overload capacity is strong and suitable for It is used when starting and stopping frequently and the starting torque is required. However, the stepper motor is open-loop control, does not measure the speed, starts relatively slowly, and generally does not have the overload capability. If the speed and processing accuracy of the process is very high, it is recommended that customers who purchase engraving machines choose servo motors.

Choice of the transmission system.

Generally, the drive system of the CNC router will use a rack guide rail. The rack is generally including the straight rack and helical rack. Compared with the straight rack transmission, helical gear has better bite and higher precision. And the y-axis needs two drive motors to drive (one each on the left and right sides). One drive motor for the x-axis, and another one for the Z-axis lead screw can be driven. Guide rails generally include square rails and circular rails. The load capacity and accuracy retention capacity of square rails are several times that of circular rails. Generally, large-format wood engraving opportunities choose formula rails as the transmission system, which can not only improve the processing accuracy but also can improve the service life of woodworking engraving machine equipment.
