Wiseman Upgrades Engineering Cell - WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK

Wiseman Upgrades Engineering Cell - WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK

We recently vamped up our Experimental Factory with the installation of CNC machinery which includes the CNC Router, CNC Lathe & CNC Mill.

Here we take a closer look at the integrated functions of the CNC machinery currently operating in the Engineering Cell.

CNC Lathe & CNC Mill

Using both of these types of equipment we are able to machine a range of metals into components which are designed to a required specification.

The CNC Lathe (pictured above) is fully functional and mainly used on cylindrical work pieces to cut profiles, for example threading on screws. This machine is also able to rough turn, groove, bore and cut threads, to name a few applications.

Functions of the CNC Mill (pictured below) include drilling types of holes, smoothing surfaces and cutting shapes.

We are currently trialling different machining techniques such as milling and fly cut milling.

A qualified engineering tradesman will be able to identify which cutting tools to place on the machines & determine the ideal speed the machine should operate at by taking into account the type of materials used, depth of cutting required etc.

Learners using this equipment for upskilling and training purposes will be fully supervised and provided with all the necessary coaching to develop their competence in using the CNC Mill & CNC Lathe.

CNC Router

 

The CNC Router we have is currently set up for engraving/carving designs into medium density fiberboard (MDF).

Using AutoCAD, we can design our product prior to manufacturing. Alternatively, we can upload an image as the program is capable of identifying shades and tones to engrave 3D images.

The software we are currently using to manufacture products is DeskCNC, which is user friendly and fairly easy to use.
