Problems with CNC Machining

CNC machinery can have problems arise, and some of these problems are more common than others. When these problems occur, FlexCare+ steps in to get them resolved for you and back on track for new or current customers. These problems can include: 

# 1 Fixturing

CNC machinery can have problems when the workpiece that is being operated on cannot be gripped correctly by the work holding on the machine. A complex fixture can sometimes be as difficult to manufacture as the part it was supposed to hold. Besides this, it can also lead to vibrations and chatter during the process, and on occasion, an accident can happen.

#2 - Wrong Tools or Settings

By not picking the right tools or selecting the proper settings, you can have problems with your machinery or the product you may be working with. When this happens, the feed rate can be critical because if it is too low, the product will remain in the path of the cutting tool for too long and leave burnt or unwanted marks on the product.

#3 - Errors in Programming

A computer system controls these machines through the program that is installed. This system can cause issues in the programming and lead to product errors and mishaps. It is valuable to understand the G and M codes used in the controller and identify where these errors occur at.

#4 - Inexperienced Workers and Training

A computer system controls these machines through the program that is installed. This system can cause issues in the programming and lead to product errors and mishaps. It is valuable to understand the G and M codes used in the controller and identify where these errors occur at.

#5 - Machine Vibration and Chatter

Machine vibration can wear and tear on these CNC machines and the workpiece at hand. Your tools can deteriorate a lot quicker with the vibrations and will also affect the machine’s durability in the long run. They can cause problems within the spindle housing and within the machine bed itself. These problems can sometimes happen because of the wrong tool choice or supply settings.
