Is the CNC machining center good or the engraving and milling machine?

First, is the CNC machining center good or the engraving and milling machine?

CNC machining centers and engraving and milling machines are common mechanical equipments. There are similarities and differences between the two. If it is hard to say that the CNC machining center is good or the engraving and milling is difficult to have an accurate answer. There is no way to compare the use. The pros and cons of the two can only be compared in some small ways.

Second, the rigidity is good for CNC machining center or good for engraving and milling machine

The non-moving part of the CNC machining center requires very good rigidity, and the moving part is also very rigid, enabling heavy cutting. The non-moving part of the engraving and milling machine has good rigidity, and the moving part is more flexible because of the requirement of the engraving and milling machine, so this part of the rigidity is worse than the CNC machining center.

Third, the spindle speed is CNC machining center or engraving and milling machine fast

The CNC spindle speed requirement is generally 0-8000 rpm. Although the high-speed machining center can achieve a high speed, the overall requirement is that the engraving and milling machine requires a high speed. The engraving and milling machine requires a high-speed CNC system. 3000-30000 rpm, some specific engraving and milling machine spindle speed is higher than the high speed machining center.

Fourth, CNC machining center and engraving and milling machine processing range is different

The CNC machining center is used to complete the machining of workpieces with a large amount of milling, and can perform heavy cutting. The engraving and milling machine is generally used for processing equipment with small cutting amount or soft metal, and is commonly used for lettering.

In general, if it is hard to compare, it can't be divided into high and low. For example, in the heavy cutting, the engraving and milling machine cannot be used. In the fine engraving, the machining center is useless. It can only be said that both have their own characteristics and In the field of action, no tough comparison can be made.
