Title: CNC Lathe Machinery Sales Australia – Things to know

How to Operate a CNC Machine
  • Before operation, comes preparation. Lets
    outline three easy steps to prepare the machine
    you are going to operate.
  • Follow all the safety procedures
  • Fit the tools and install the workplace
  • Load the computer based programs and key in the
    required activities on the control panel of the
    CNC machine

Brief introduction to each of these steps
Follow all the safety procedures Follow the CNC
manual and make sure you always wear the correct
protective clothing. Carry out work safely in
accordance with schedules and manufacturers
specifications. Fit the tools and install the
workplace Make sure that each tool is installed
at its correct location. The tool sequence must
follow the machines program. Load the computer
based programs This is the final step in the
process and once you load the program, you are
ready to go.
Operating a CNC Machine
  • Now that you know how to set up a CNC machine,
    you now need to know how to operate the machine.
    The process will be relatively simple, but you
    must follow a few steps to ensure a good
    performance. These are -
  • Choose the right tool
  • Check and adjust worn or damaged tooling
  • Troubleshoot common machine fault/s
  • Remove and measure machines
  • Complete and process CNC machine records
  • Clean the machine

Selecting the Right Tool
  • Select the tools for a particular job, based on
    the following criteria
  • The amount of material that must be removed from
    the work piece
  • The cutting speeds you require
  • The production rates required or the number of
    work pieces that can be produced per minute

Check and Replace Worn or Damaged Tooling
  • All tool holders, cutting tips and drill bits are
    subject to wear and tear.
  • This is usually caused by -
  • Misalignment of the tips in the tool holder
  • Misalignment of the tool holder in the CNC
    machine spindle
  • Inappropriate feed rates, speeds and work piece
    material, and
  • Inappropriate coolant and coolant flow
  • Therefore, inspect all tools regularly, measure
    them in terms of angles and depth, and compare
    them against the standard measurements and
    replace them, as needed.

Troubleshoot common machine faults
  • The material will burn out if the tool is blunt
  • The work piece will be very rough and have cutter
    marks, if the machine travels too fast in terms
    of speed
  • Slightly worn tools will cause incorrect
  • If the tool data has been set up incorrectly,
    then the finished component will not be in
    correct size or requirements
  • When you notice any of these faults, you must
    take action to rectify the problem immediately.

Remove and Measure Machine Components
  • Measuring and removing machine components is
    standard machine shop practice. The removal
    process depends on the clamping methods used
  • Consult the work piece drawings to verify the
    actual measurements, when compared with the
    specified tolerances on the drawing

Complete and process CNC machine records
  • All the info such as inspection report, the
    production drawing and any faults that are
    encountered, must be reported
  • The amount of material and the number of tool
    tips and other consumables used must be written
    in a report
  • Once the report is complete, give it to the
    relevant dept.

Clean the Machine
  • Remove all waste material from the bin, including
  • Be careful when you handle swarf as it can
    be very sharp and can
  • cause severe cuts
  • Separate wastes that can be recycled such as
    brass and copper, from non-recyclable waste and
    follow your company procedure for recycling
  • Follow the company procedure for disposing of
    non-recyclable waste
