CNC cutting and engraving - What do these processes entail?
Engraving is a process through which a drawing can be transferred to a hard surface that can be made of metal, glass, wood, acrylic sheets, plexiglass, or plastic, as well as other materials that allow such interventions. The process consists in the repeated digging of small ditches, through cutting (or milling) techniques, but also through the use of a CO2 laser. As for the shape and composition of a surface, it can be either flat or curved.
The cutting procedure has the role of shaping different materials according to a vector drawing. It is taken over by specialists and is processed with the help of a numerical control (CNC), which allows for an extremely high accuracy. The cutting process is not complicated and it can be applied on various categories of surfaces (made of metal, chipboard, wood, or others).
- What does CNC mean?
CNC is an equipment based on numerical command and control systems, with the help of which engravings, cuts, or other types of mechanical operations that require a precise action can be created. Activating the CNC involves entering data that provides guidance on how to cut or write. The software dictates the movements and the machine executes them. The code used leaves no room for error and is made of a complex numerical system, which has the role of guiding the whole process in the right direction, in order to achieve the desired result. This structure allows the pre-programming of speed, position, and functions, which will generate repetitive cycles of movements that do not require the intervention of a human operator. Therefore, it is one of the most used methods to create various objects and elements, in a simple and fast way. In terms of cutting, there are both water jet cutting options and plasma cutting options - each one of them has unique characteristics, suitable for certain types of materials.
What types of projects may require CNC cutting and engraving operations?
There are a lot of projects that you can do through CNC cutting or engraving operations. This technique can be used to create props, trophies, decor pieces, or any other kind of objects that require a precise approach. If you need an engraved drawing, all you have to do is to select the image you want and ask for the help of an expert who can support you throughout the process. If you want to cut a material with CNC equipment, you can select multiple surfaces, made of wood, plywood, triple layered wood, MDF, OSB, HDF, plastics (such as stiplex, plexiglass, acrylic sheets, dibond or alucobond), aluminum, sheet of iron, copper, brass, and others. They will be debited in an accurate, well-developed manner, with no mistakes. Therefore, these techniques eliminate any kind of human error and contribute positively to the creation of ideal and accurately made objects.
