What differentiates our CNCs

In the competitive world of manufacturing, the innovation and versatility of CNC machining centers are critical to success. We developed three highly customizable models specifically designed to machine extremely hard and tough materials, a challenge beyond the capabilities of an ordinary CNC center.

Our philosophy has always been to create CNC machining centers that perfectly suit every customer’s needs and available space. All three models represent concrete examples of this approach. They offer multiple configurations, including the ability to go up to 8 axes and transform into vertical lathes to confront various manufacturing challenges.

Vibrations, caused by the heavy machining of hard and tough materials, have been practically eliminated due to the robust design of each model. This preserves the tools’ durability while maintaining high levels of precision throughout the working volume.

What types of CNCs do we use?

An NC, or Numerical Control, is an automation system used to control the motion and operations of industrial machines such as lathes, milling machines, machining centers, and other machine tools.

Generally speaking, the choice among these three manufacturers will depend on the specific needs for application and the preferences of the end customer. Each one of them offers high-quality solutions, but you may need to consider other factors such as accuracy, programming complexity, technical support, and local availability when making a decision.

Among the most recognized and admired machine tools in the industrial field, 5-axis CNC machines stand out. The acronym CNC stands for “Computerized Numerical Control,” and these machines represent the pinnacle of automation in the industry.

A 5-axis CNC machining center is a highly automated industrial machine used to perform different precision machining operations on materials such as metal, plastic and wood. These machines follow preprogrammed instructions provided in numerical form through control software, allowing them to move along several axes (usually X, Y and Z) to perform operations such as milling, boring, turning, drilling and others.

The versatility, precision and automation of CNC machining centers make them essential in multiple industries, from aerospace to automotive, where the production of accurate components is crucial. These machines can be customized to meet a company’s specific production needs and reduce dependence on human labor, increasing production efficiency.

There are 2 macrocategories of machining centers that differ in spindle axis orientation:

  1. Vertical Machining Centers (VMCs). Quest e machines have a vertically oriented spindle axis. They are suitable for milling, drilling and 3D machining operations on medium to large parts. They are widely used in the engineering industry.
  2. Horizontal Machining Centers (HMCs). In this case, the spindle axis is oriented horizontally. Horizontal machining centers are ideal for machining large parts and are often used in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Our machines, such as the VMC 5-axis milling machine or Talos gantry, belong to the category of Vertical Machining Centers; on the other hand, the Emera moving column milling machine belongs to the category of Horizontal Machining Centers.

A 5-axis CNC machining center is capable of moving along five directions of motion to enable complex and detailed machining on mechanical components. The five axes are usually designated as follows:

  • The X axis represents the longitudinal movement of the machine, usually coinciding with the movement from left to right or vice versa.
  • The Y-axis represents the transverse movement of the machine, that is, movement from front to back or vice versa.
  • The Z axis represents the vertical movement of the machine, that is, up and down movement.
  • The A-axis is often called the “rotation axis” and is responsible for rotation around the X-axis. This movement allows the machine to tilt the workpiece or tool.
  • The B axis is also a “rotary axis,” but it operates around the Y axis. This movement adds the ability to tilt the workpiece or tool in a different plane than the A-axis.

The combined use of these five axes enables the 5-axis CNC machining center to perform extremely complex machining and achieve angles and working positions that are difficult to achieve with lesser-axis machines. This versatility is critical for the production of highly precise and intricate parts in various industries, such as aerospace, automotive, dentistry, and many others.

Five-axis CNC machining offers many advantages over less-axis machining due to its advanced three-dimensional motion capability. Here are some of the main advantages of 5-axis CNC machining:

  • Versatility, ideal for complex parts and intricate geometries.
  • Increased precision during complex machining.
  • Less processing time due to less repositioning.
  • Reducing waste by minimizing production errors and rejects.
  • Improved surface finish due to the ability to reach difficult areas.
  • Saving time and labor through work automation.
  • Improved material utilization by processing from different angles.
  • Reducing production costs by optimizing work.

In summary, 5-axis CNC machining combines versatility, precision, efficiency and quality to meet production needs in diverse industries, improving competitiveness and reducing overall costs.
