The CNC router machine cuts in three directions at once. The precision of the router's cutting relies on the design software, software that provides a two-fold advantage to the router operator. To begin with, the CAD software gives the operator of the CNC router machine the ability to create the design that will be cut into the solid plate.
After the operator creates the design, that same operator relies on the computer to send the proper operating instructions. The instructions from the software send signals to the router motor drive. These signals, termed tool path files, allow the motor controls to direct the precise motion of the router drive system.
The router bits perform the cutting of the CNC router machine. These bits are similar to drill bits. As mentioned above, the cutting can proceed along three different axes simultaneously. The CNC controls cause the movements of the drill bits to take place in small and precise increments.
Cutting along the x-axis shifts from forward to back. Cuts along y axis moves across the left from right to left. Cuts along the z-axis goes upwards and downwards. The capability to allow CNC router machines CNC router machines to rotate three directions simultaneously results in creating interesting designs and designs.
