#cncmachines In this video you’re going to learn about the different types of CNC machines. We’ll cover the benefits and limitations of each machine, and how they work.
00:00 Introduction. What you’ll learn in this video.
1:10 Overview of the different types of CNC machines. Here, we’ll provide a complete overview of the different types of CNC machines we will be explaining.
1:35 3 axis CNC machines. We’ll start by explaining how 3 axis CNC turning and CNC milling machines work.
1:54 CNC milling machines. Next, you’ll learn about CNC milling machines and why they are one of the most common machines in use. After that, we’ll show you how they work and finally touch on some of the benefits and limitations of CNC milling machines.
3:01 CNC turning machines, or lathes. In this section, we’ll talk about the difference between CNC milling machines and CNC turning machines. After that, you’ll see how a tuning machine works.
3:58 Multi axis, or 5 axis, CNC machines. Moving on to 5 axis machines, you’ll learn that they rotate on 5 axis, making them different from 3 axis CNC machines. The general benefits and imitations of 5 axis machines are briefly discussed.
4:49 Indexed 5-axis CNC milling machines. Or 3 + 5 CNC machines. In this section of the video, we’ll explain how an indexed 5-axis machine works and what some of the benefits and limitations are.
5:25 Continuous 5-axis CNC machines. We’ll start this part of the video by explaining why continuous 5 axis CNC machines are different from Index 5-axis CNC machines. You’ll see how a continuous 5-axis machine works and we’ll cover some of the benefits and limitations of this machine.
6:00 Mill-turning CNC centers. Here, Mill-turning CNC centers are explained and why this machine is a good hybrid of a turning and milling machine.
6:45 Recap of the video.
