About CNC machining China
CNC machines can create a broad range of features and high-precision parts. For instance, CNC milling machines are ideal for producing cavities, angled shapes, holes, and slots.
In contrast, CNC lathes are suitable for creating cylindrical shapes or parts that are symmetrical near their axis.
Nevertheless, CNC milling and turning machines can achieve tolerances as tight as ±0.001mm.
They are also compatible with a broad range of materials, including metals and plastics, so long as these materials are available in blocks. This is not the case with additive manufacturing technologies (like 3D printing), which are only compatible with plastics and a few metals.
Standard CNC machines include multi-axis CNC milling machines, lathes (or turning machines), and routers. Although all CNC machine types rely on computer instructions to perform subtractive manufacturing, they differ slightly in their modes of operation.
