CNC Milling Machines: Their Advantages over Traditional Milling Machines

Computer numerical control (CNC) machinery has improved woodworking by automating critical functions that once required manual input. In doing so, it has made high production milling, routing and other practices more feasible in terms of manpower, and narrowed the gap between “proficient” and “expert” machine operators. If your company needs new machines for milling, below are seven reasons why choosing CNC milling machines over standard ones makes the most sense.

Better Production Capacity

Due to their automatic operation and excellent cutting ability, CNC machines can produce multiple pieces in remarkably less time than standard machines. The production capacity of a CNC machine depends on its table size and number of cutter heads. Opting for an oversized table and five cutter heads can create a dramatic surge in production.

Increased Cutting Accuracy

CNC machinery cuts with more accuracy than standard machinery for an obvious reason: software programs control it. In addition to increasing design options, these programs refine cutting accuracy, creating consistent precision. CNC millers cut with greater accuracy than standard ones, producing intricate designs that would be impossible otherwise.

Reduced Rework

As a consequence of increased cutting accuracy, CNC milling machines reduce rework, helping the production process to maintain fluidity and economy. As with increased cutting accuracy, the reason for reduced rework is computer control that eliminates human error.

Reduced Waste

Reduced rework and reduced waste go hand-in-hand. If your company has a high production rate, reducing waste pieces can be a valuable cost saving measure. Trash cans full of discarded work pieces are not a sign of booming business; they are a sign business is conducted ineffectively from a machining standpoint. CNC machining can help to change this.

Easier to Operate

CNC machines require training and practice to operate correctly. But once you learn the ropes, their operation becomes second nature. Unlike older machines that required constant dexterity from their operators, CNC machines allow operators to oversee the production process as they manipulate a computer as needed.

Better Resale Value

The investment required for an industrial grade milling machine—and the fact you may need to upgrade a few years after buying it—make it important to consider resale value. Standard industrial grade millers possess resale value until the end of their lifespan, but CNC millers possess the most resale value due to the benefits listed above.

Buying a CNC Milling Machine Used

Due to its superior construction and technology, a new industrial CNC milling machine is often a six-figure—and sometimes a seven-figure—investment.  Consequently, many companies consider buying one used. When purchased from a professional seller of used woodworking machinery, a used CNC machine can perform like new for years to come, in spite of its affordable price.

At RT Machine, we offer the best used woodworking machinery and perform machine location when our customers need a machine we do not have in stock.  To find the CNC milling machine that best meets your needs, browse through our product pages or call us today and let us locate the machine you need.
