Skills for CNC lathes to process thin-walled parts!

During the machining and cutting process, the CNC lathe is subjected to the action of the cutting force, and the elastic deformation occurs in the direction of the force, which is what we often call the phenomenon of letting the knife. Corresponding measures should be taken on the tool to deal with such deformation. The…

Why 5-axis machining is becoming more and more popular?

Five-axis machining is not a new term at present, and it has been widely used in enterprise practice. The following is a brief introduction to the reasons why the five-axis machining center is so popular. First, the economy of the five-axis machining center. 1: The five-axis machining center can clamp multiple workpieces at one time,…

Do you know the process of CNC machining?

Many people are not clear about the CNC machining process, so the CNC processing factory will briefly introduce what the CNC machining process is. The composition of the entire CNC process includes product analysis-graphic planning-process planning-pathway generation-pathway simulation-pathway output-processing-inspection. 1. Product analysis should obtain certain composition information and some specific processing requirements. 2. Graphic planning…

Steel Material

45 steel 45 steel is the name in GB, also called “oil steel”, this steel has higher strength and better machinability. Material advantages: It has high strength and good machinability. After proper heat treatment, a certain degree of toughness, plasticity and wear resistance can be obtained. The material source is convenient. It is suitable for…

The difference between hard anodizing and ordinary anodizing

1. Different thickness: The thickness of hard oxide is thicker than that of ordinary oxide. Generally, the thickness of ordinary oxide film is 8–12 um, and the thickness of hard oxide film is generally 40-70 um. 2. Different hardness: Hardness: Normal oxidation is generally HV250-350, and hard oxidation is generally HV350-550. 3. the temperature is…

Advantages of brass

Brass Brass is a copper-zinc alloy, and brass composed of copper and zinc is called ordinary brass. Material advantages: It has high strength, high hardness, and strong chemical resistance. The mechanical properties of cutting are also outstanding. Brass has strong wear resistance. Special brass is also called special brass. It has high strength, high hardness…

Red copper

Pure copper (also known as red copper) is a ductile metal with excellent electrical conductivity. The surface is rose red. It is not pure copper, it contains 99.9% copper, and some other elements are added to improve the surface and performance. Material advantages: It has good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, ductility, deep drawing and corrosion…

Advantages of aluminum alloy 7075

7075 aluminum alloy 7075 aluminum alloy is a cold-treated forging alloy with high strength, far better than mild steel. 7075 is one of the most powerful alloys commercially available. Material advantages: General corrosion resistance, good mechanical properties and anode reaction. The finer grains make the deep drilling performance better, the tool wear resistance is enhanced,…
