Highlighting Several of Our Favorite CNC Machines

CNC Masters recently gained a few new machines that are attention worthy. We wanted to use this post an opportunity to showcase some of their strengths.  Max CNC Mill

Max CNC Mill

Our new CNC MAX is specifically designed for the machinist considering the CNC Baron Mill that needs higher spindle speed and longer Y axis travel. The value and compact nature of the CNC Baron Mill are enhanced with the added features on the CNC MAX. The CNC MAX Milling Machine is turn-key, easy to learn, and even easier to operate. This machine also has the durable cast iron body and is designed for more demanding users. It provides more advanced features that emphasize the cutting precision and the ease of use.

The SUPRA CNC Mill offers Turn-Key Operation for any beginner or experienced machinist who needs a user-friendly, easy-to-use, machine and that needs to cut the parts the same day the unit arrives. This CNC Vertical Knee Mill provides the strength and durability of a manually driven Bridgeport-type vertical knee mill. The ingenuity of this machine delivers intricate and detailed parts through automation technology while giving the operator the option to manually machine simple parts through the use of the axis’ hand wheel. The machine also comes with the software you need to your milling needs without requiring extra software and has a one year warranty.

Whether you are a hobbyist or a businessman with a small to medium-sized enterprise in need of machine parts, this machine can likely meet your needs. This machine is as powerful as the full sized model but is a smaller size milling machine that comes pre-built and easily hooks up to your computer. The software is easy to use and will help you get projects done faster. This machine comes with a one year warranty.

CNC 1440 LATHE

The 1440 CNC Lathe has the ability to revert to manual control quickly and efficiently, eliminating the need to write a CNC CNC 1440 Turning Center program for short runs. At the same time, its advanced CNC capabilities transform complex turning applications into simple designs that can be programmed and executed accurately many times over on production runs.

How to Organize Tools In Your Workshop

Organized workshopScraps of wood and metal likely cover the surface of your workshop as proof of how hard you work in that space. However, a workshop does not need to be messy and will function much better if it is organized and inviting. If you are happy with the way your workshop looks and feels, you’re more likely to spend time on those projects that are piling up.

Finished Space


If the ceiling is unfinished in your workshop and it has wood or wires exposed, you’ve found your first project. A space without a ceiling will always feel cold and unappealing. You will likely spend a lot of time in your workshop and it’s important for it to feel welcoming. Painting the walls of your workshop is also an easy way to make the space feel warmer. Choose a color that you really like but wouldn’t necessarily use in your home. You can paint a workshop whatever color you want and that’s fun!


Give It Light

You will need light in your workshop in order to make it a practical space. Most workshops are within a garage or basement and both have little light. Fluorescent lights are ideal for a workshop. Although they feel very industrial, they are energy efficient and don’t give off heat. An encased fluorescent light will also not shatter or spark if it is dropped or knocked which is inevitable in a workshop.

 

Benefits of Workbenches

Installing a workbench is a vital part of making your workshop functional. A workbench will give you a large, flat space to handle multiple projects. Workbenches often come with drawers and hooks as well to use for storage and organizing. Place a padded, rubber mat down at the foot of the workbench to make it more comfortable for you when you’re standing at it.


Know Safety Precautions

Your workshop is likely an extension of your home but you still need to recognize that many of the materials in a workshop are dangerous. If you have chemicals in your workshop, store them in a locked cabinet and away from anything that could give off heat. Keep a fire extinguisher in your workshop as a precaution as well. Always wear closed toe shoes, such as sneakers or boots, in your workshop to protect your feet from tools or nails.


Categorize and Organize

Work benches are full of multiple tools, wires, tapes, paints, and extension cords. Come up with categories for whatever you have a multitude of in your workshop, label drawers, and organize accordingly. Make a habit of putting things away in the correct places. If designated drawers hold specific items, you will also save time because you’ll know where to find what you need.

Workshops are for building and creating. Whether you are creating a CNC machine masterpiece or fixing a light fixture, your workshop should feel organized, comfortable, and inviting.


Why Sheet Metal And CNC Machines Go Hand In Hand

Sheet Metal and CNC MachinesIf you are making a one-off sheet metal project, such as a hobby piece or prototype, CNC machines are just the thing for you. The lineup of machines CNC provides allows you to keep your p roject in-house, preserving trade secrets. They also have a very small footprint, saving you the expense of additional space.

Where CNC machines really start to shine in sheet metal use is when you start to take advantage of our software. CNC Machine Master MX software is included with every purchase of our CNC mills, lathes, and router machines. It runs with most Windows programs from seven on up as well as with a USB port connection, touch screen desktop or laptop PC.

The Master MX comes with wizards to easily generate a file without using CAM software. The MX can also run standard FANUC G-code files from other CAD-CAM software such as MasterCAM, SmartCam, SurfCam, etc.

If you are used to doing your sheet metal machine work manually, CNC equipment has a great track record of helping people transition to software-based machining. CNC machines have brought together the best aspects of manual mills and lathes and integrated them with CNC capabilities. Because of this, many of our customers who were used to manual controls found it easy to learn the ropes of CNC machines.

Don’t believe us? Check out some testimonials.

One great example of very nice sheet metal work using CNC machines is from Creative Sheet Metal Services. Danny Isaacs used the Supra Mill for a cockpit instrument panel that used one-inch thick plate sheet metal.

Whether you are machining car parts, computer parts, of the next great invention of your own imagining, check out CNC’s lineup. We can help you bring your idea and your business into the world.
