We already have a preliminary understanding of the more common CNC router machines on the market, so how should we choose them? Next, I will analyze in several aspects.

1. Processing method:

According to materials:

Most CNC router machines can process wood, plastic, acrylic, aluminum and other soft materials. If you want to process stone, please choose CNC router for stone. If you want to process metal, please choose CNC router for metal. If you are not sure which CNC router machine your materials require, please leave your contact information and we will help you choose.

Distinguish according to the number of axis:

3 axis CNC mill machine: This type of 3 axis CNC mill machine is the most common CNC machine on the market. It has three axes, X, Y, and Z. This kind of machine is relatively simple to operate, so it is suitable for beginners of CNC machine. It can almost meet all the needs of ordinary plane processing, if you just process relatively simple materials, then you can choose it. And it also has many options: such as mini CNC router, desktop CNC router, ATC CNC machine and so on.

4 Axis CNC machine/5 Axis CNC router: The 4 axis CNC machine has X, Y, Z, A axis. These spindles can approach the workpiece from different angles, so it can realize not only plane carving, but also 3D stereo carving. The 5 axis CNC router machine not only has all the axes of the 4 axis CNC router, but also a rotary axis. This woodworking engraving machine is equipped with a special rotating device, which can effectively process four processing surfaces, especially when processing cylindrical and four-sided three-dimensional workpieces, greatly reducing the number of clamping times, and can easily perform multi-sided processing.
