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
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.
CNC Supra Mill
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.
Our CNC Baron has been added into our line of CNC milling machines. This machine is designed for the machinist who needs both efficient and compact equipment at an excellent value. It is turn-key, easy to learn, and easy to operate. It has a durable cast iron body without being the size of a larger machine. The small frame is perfect for large and small manufacturing plants, machine shops, and other institutions that require the mass production of a single part. The CNC Baron Milling Machine comes with a one year warranty and we also offer product support for the CNC Baron Mill and its operational software as long as you or your company owns the CNC machine.
CNC JR Mill
If something essential is missing from your garage or workstation, the CNC JR Mill might be it. 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 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.

Manufacturing businesses and machine shops often use a combination of newer technologies and older but proven tools. Many times, newer tools are actually improvements on older models that have already proven their value to the industry. The industry continues to innovate, however, and bring new tools and technologies to market. Here are three great up-and-coming machining innovations to keep an eye on, according to American Machinist.
Vero-S Setup Cart
Keeping track of unused module height extensions, clamping devices and mounting screws can prove to be a challenge. Worse, even if they are all stored together, they may not be easily accessible when and where they are needed. The Vero-S setup cart from Schunk attempts to solve this problem. The cart is a wheeled organizer that features removable trays and extending drawers, and can be configured to meet an individual user’s needs. The drawers can hold almost 400 pounds and the top tray can hold nearly 900 pounds.
Polycrystalline Diamond Drill Insert
Drilling in carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer can be hard on tools. The new polycrystalline diamond (PCD) T-A Drill insert from Allied Machine & Engineering aims to fix this. The T-A Drill is designed with a replaceable tip that prevents needing to replace the entire tool. These drill inserts are designed to perform on abrasive and strong materials like CFRP-titanium stacks, chipboard, fiberglass, magnesium, aluminum, copper and titanium, making them highly versatile for applications in both automotive and aerospace industries, reports American Machinist.
Constant pH Cutting Fluid
Cutting fluid technology is also experiencing innovative developments, as seen with the introduction of Castrol’s Hysol SL 35 XBB and Alusol SL 51 XBB. Whereas traditional cutting fluid often requires the use of biocides and treatment additives to maintain stability, these new fluids from Castrol are stable longer than other cutting fluids and can maintain a stable pH of 9.0 to 9.5. In turn, this also protects from changes in acidity that can lead to expensive system repairs or a need to fully flush fluid systems.

Nobody can predict the future, and success tends to introduce new problems, too. Maybe your tabletop mill suited your initial needs perfectly, but now it can’t keep up with the demands of a growing small business. Or maybe you’ve recently discovered a new business or hobby opportunity that didn’t exist before but that will require new milling capacities or speeds.
A CNC milling machine is a specialized machine that uses computer access to help produce parts. The design of the parts can be integrated onto the computer specifying the exact measurements. The CNC milling machine then creates the part to the precise design dimensions. One of the advantages of using CNC technology is that you will get the exact same sized part each and every time. When you want to mass produce many of the same items you want them to be the same. You can choose the size of the machine that suits your needs the best. There are tabletop machines that are easily fitted onto a workbench. Standing models are available that are larger in size. If you only need to use the mill occasionally a tabletop model is probably the right size. Those who use the machine frequently will prefer the stability and additional features that you can get with a standing model.
