What is the Home CNC Router Machine
With the rapid development of CNC router machines, more and more ordinary people will buy a CNC router machine to make some daily necessities for their home, and schools will also choose to buy small CNC machines to do some DIY activities. So for these people, the home CNC router machine is the most suitable for them. This kind of CNC router machine used at home is generally a desktop CNC router machine, which is also called mini CNC machine. This kind of machine has a compact structure and small volume. The price of this home CNC router machine is very cheap, the safety is high, it can be moved arbitrarily, and the floor space is small. It uses improved industrial CNC operating software and typesetting processing software, which is stable and reliable, and the operation becomes extremely simple. Non-professionals can also quickly master this home CNC machine. So this machine has now become one of the most popular CNC router machine for sale.
The Advantages of Home CNC Router
1.The small home CNC engraving machine has a smaller cutting table, which is more suitable for processing some small workpieces, such as signs, kitchen utensils, small crafts, cabinet doors, wooden furniture, etc. Compared with the normal model CNC router machine, the required power is also relatively low.
2.The price of home CNC router machine is relatively cheap, so for families, the price of the home CNC engraving machine of two to three thousand dollars is acceptable. And this kind of small home engraving machine occupies a relatively small area, so it is more conducive to placing and handling, you can place it anywhere.
3.The small home CNC router machine has high cutting accuracy. Although it is a small CNC wood router, it can perform high-precision cutting. For example,it can realize carving wooden furniture patterns, carving advertising signs and so on. Moreover, its cutting speed is also very fast, which is not much different from that of a large CNC router machine.
4.The home CNC machine is easy to use, even if you have never touched this machine before, you can quickly learn how to operate this machine. You can choose a variety of controllers, such as the Mach 3 Controller installed on the computer and the handheld DSP controller. These two controllers are the two most popular controllers among buyers, and you can choose one of them as your control Device.
Applicable materials of home mini CNC router
The small home CNC router machine is suitable for all kinds of softwood, hardwood, mahogany: density board, solid wood board, composite board, multilayer board, planed board, cork, native wood, PVC, gypsum, two-color board, aluminum-plastic board, hibiscus Relief carving, cutting, hollowing and other materials of board (Fron board), plexiglass, acrylic, ABS board, various hard plastics, etc. This machine can cut 20mm thick MDF and can be used for hollow carving of MDF and solid wood board materials.It is also suitable for engraving PCB circuit boards, substitute wood model molds, handicrafts, making holes and milling holes in plastic boxes, aluminum alloy cases, panels that do not exceed the specified specifications.This mini home CNC engraver machine also can process aluminum alloy, copper, etc materials.
What The Home Mini CNC Machine Can do
1. Small mold manufacturing, seal manufacturing, acrylic engraving, advertising sign engraving.
2. Small DIY crafts carving, wood carving pendant carving, wood carving screen carving, etc.
3. Engraving of various high-precision products, the smallest can be engraved to 1mm English letters or numbers, 2mm Chinese characters, high engraving accuracy, smooth engraving without burrs.
4. Wood furniture carving, architectural model manufacturing, decoration manufacturing.
Precautions for choosing best home CNC machine
1. First of all, you must determine the product you are going to process, because the small CNC engraving machine has a big gap in the processing field. For example, some machines can perform 3D engraving, while some small machines can only perform flat engraving. Most small CNC engraving machines can process wood and soft metals, such as aluminum and copper. If you want to process hard metals (iron, steel), please don’t choose the mini CNC router machine.
2. To choose a suitable CNC mill router, you must understand the performance and functions of the mini engraving machine motor. The engraving head motor of the engraving machine is also very important, because the engraving machine spindle motor is generally not covered by the warranty, and the engraving head motor is It works continuously for a long time, so if the spindle motor of the engraving machine is not good, it will also affect the use of the engraving machine.
3. Then it is necessary to understand the adjustable speed range of the engraving head motor. The general adjustable speed range is several thousand to 30,000 revolutions per minute. If the speed is not adjustable or the adjustable speed range is small, then the application range of the engraving machine It is very limited, because different materials must be engraved with different speeds of the engraving head, so we have to choose a machine that can complete our own cutting tasks.
4. The transmission mode of small CNC home router machine is currently the most popular two, namely the screw type and the rack type. The screw-type machine has higher cutting accuracy, but the cutting speed is slower and easily damaged. The rack drive machine is an upgraded version of the lead screw machine, which has faster cutting speed and more stable operation. If you want to process high-precision products, you can choose a screw-type machine. If you just do simple cutting, then a rack-type machine is a good choice.
5. Before choosing the appropriate best CNC home router machine, determine the basic structure of the machine. There are two types of machines, column type and gantry type. Gantry type is divided into fixed gantry and mobile gantry, fixed gantry and column type. The structure is relatively stable, and this structure is mainly used on large CNC engraving machines. Most of the small engraving machines are mobile gantry. If you choose according to the frame material, aluminum alloy. The stability of machines made of steel plate and cast iron is getting higher and higher. If you are only doing simple engraving, then the CNC router home machine with aluminum frame is the best choice. This kind of machine is cheap, lighter, and easy to move.
6. The Controller of the home CNC mini router machine has two types, one is controlled by software on the computer, such as Mach 3 and NC-studio CNC control system. This kind of controller needs to be installed on the computer for use. So you need to have a certain ability to operate the computer. The other is a handheld controller, the DSP controller is one of the most popular handle CNC controller, it does not need to be connected to a computer for operation, it can be directly connected to the machine for operation. So the choice of operating system depends on your budget and operating habits.
Why small engraving machine becomes the home CNC router machine
Do you know why the mini CNC engraving machine has become the most popular home CNC machine?
1.I think the most important thing is that this machine is cheap. Compared with other industrial machines, the mini CNC engraving machine is a cheaper machine. The price ranges from a few hundred dollars to two thousand dollars. This price is an affordable price, and if you buy the machine, it can also create profits for you, such as producing small crafts, carving small wooden furniture, etc., which can bring you profits.
2.In addition to the low price factor, there are many other factors, such as small footprint and easy mobility. After all, this kind of machine is to be used at home, so it is best not to occupy a large area, and it is best to easily transport it to any place in the home.
3.Another factor is also very important. This kind of mini home CNC router machine is relatively easy to operate. It is not like a professional CNC machine. It needs to master the complicated operation method. As long as you study it for a few days, you can quickly master how to do it. Operate this machine. I think the above three points should be why the small engraving machine has become the most popular household engraving machine.
