CNC Mill Training System (Heavy Duty)

5600-2

Description

The CNC Mill Training System provides training in computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) using an industrial-grade, microprocessor-driven, heavy-duty CNC mill. The system allows students to practice computer numerical controlled (CNC) code programming and editing, learn to operate mill components, controls, and tools, set a programmed reference zero, follow the steps necessary to machine a part to programmed specifications, and apply the machine code language to current mill technology.

The CNC Mill can machine pieces of soft materials such as plastic and wax, as well as harder materials such as aluminum, mild steel, and brass. It consists of a milling table, a headstock carrying the spindle motor, and a cast-iron vertical column with dovetail slide. The CNC mill is mounted on a solid steel chassis and is equipped with R8 tooling. The stock to be milled is secured in a vise that holds it to the milling table. Two ball screws, each driven by a stepper motor, are used to move the table along the X axis (left and right) and Y axis (backward and forward) to feed the stock through the periphery of the end mill. A third ball screw, also driven by a stepper motor, is used to move the headstock along the Z axis (up and down) for positioning the end mill. The speed of each stepper motor can be programmed separately for feed rates up to 508 mm/min (20 in/min). A 746 W (1.0 hp) dc motor rotates the spindle at speeds programmable up to 3400 rpm. The end mill can be changed to accommodate different stock materials and milling designs.

A computer is used to create NC part programs with G and M machine codes or their conversational code equivalents. The created programs are downloaded to the on-board microprocessor of the CNC mill, which stores and executes them. Since the CNC mill connects directly to the serial or Ethernet port of a computer, or directly to a network, no additional interface card is required. The computer is free to be used for any additional applications, since it is not dedicated to the control of the mill.
