What are CNC Milling?

CNC Milling :

CNC Cutting and engraving are an inseparable part of sign making industry. People can’t even imagine how important CNC technology in their daily lives is.

CNC milling is the cutting process of materials using rotary cutters. The miller dives into the material and gives it the necessary shape by quickly moving and rotating. CNC (computer numerical control) broadens the possibilities of cutting. It makes the cutting more precise and gives a possibility to make more complicated works.  It is a step forward.

This machine is ideal both for cutting and engraving. Different speeds and feeds are used for different materials and needs. The tools may also differ for various kinds of works. Depending on the material and the necessity the tools can go from 0-70mm (0- 2.7inches) deep.

Miller cutting is mostly used for cutting and engraving signs.
CNC milling machine or just CNC mill works best if precious work is required especially on solid materials. Signs, which take your marketing to a new, higher level. A wide range of engraved items gives our customers’ home and office design an excellent look.

Alternative of miller cutting machine is Laser Cutting machine. They both can be used for cutting and engraving certain materials.

Types

The CNC cutting can move along X, Y, Z axes and thus create different shapes, holes and slots. Our CNC equipment can cut through up to 2.7 inches thick allowing us to produce all the required items.

For cutting technique, we suggest outline cutting and overline cutting options.
In the first option, the machine cuts exactly over the sign lines. During overline cutting some space is left over the sign. If you want only your sign to be visible at first side you can use the outline cutting. If there’s something else next to your sign or logo or name that you want to be highlighted, overline cutting will be a better variant.

With the CNC milling and routing capabilities, we can cut any materials from Acrylic glass to PVC and wood.

Usage

With CNC cutting and engraving machine the needed product can be custom sized, shaped and created with a unique and creative design.

Therefore, we offer 2D and 3D Engraving, Milling, 3D Contouring, Flat or V-groove engraving, Shaping, Texturing techniques.

With CNC mill we can also shape or give certain texture according to your needs. CNC Flat groove engraving and V groove engraving are widely practiced. Flat groove engraving leaves the corners slightly round. V-groove carving is similar to flat, but creates a channel that comes to a point at the bottom with sharper corners.
With the help of different cutting and engraving tools, we also offer 3D contouring and engraving.

Advantages of CNC mill cutting and engraving machine:

  • High-quality results and short processing times
  • 1500 mm x 3000 mm (60”X 118”) working area
  • X,Y,Z working dimensions
  • Very good for geometrically simple objects
  • Complex parts can be milled with high detail
  • Do not burn the natural materials like wood
  • Can get 3D images and contours

Alternatives

CNC cutting and engraving service can be used on a multitude of materials of highest quality. It’s practiced on natural materials like Aluminum or wood, number of plastics and can be even applied to some soft materials.

CNC Mill and engraving technology works ideal for Metal materials like Aluminum, Dibond, etc. CNC leaves depth, engraves your logo, cuts letters, signs, etc.

CNC engraving or cutting is applied when a cut thru effect with a matte finish is needed for acrylic. CNC cutting and engraving do a very delicate and precise work on Acrylic, Lexan, PVC and alike types of material.

Engraving is highly on demand and applicable. CNC mill cuts styrene without any unwanted side effects. The thick sheets of Styrene are cut with CNC mill, whereas thinner sheets work best for Laser cutter (for example for cutting stencils).

Very much unlike laser cutting, CNC mill provides clear cutting option on wood and similar materials, leaves the edges clear and do not damage the surface.

As already mentioned, CNC also works well for soft materials. Depending on the result you want, you can choose the best option between CNC cutting and Digital cutting.

However, we suggest Digital cutting services for materials like gatorboard, foamboard, coroplast.
