The complexity of the CNC machinery (Computer Numerical Control) that is found in the facilities of any mechanized company that is worth, is unimaginable for those who do not understand it, and even, not far from there for those who work in the sector. Obviously, their studies and daily practices with these types of machines make them gradually discover the hidden secrets of these, but it is indisputable that the technique used today by CNCs in the world of precision mechanization is The most modern and advanced in the market.

In this blog post of Mecanica Curiel, we want to present some ideas on how to get your own milling machine. It is a task that requires time and dedication, and of course, investment for the purchase of the materials you will need to produce it, but once you have it, you will enjoy the freedom to work with it for your own projects, including crafts or chores .

The milling machine is one of the most present machines in the production of thousands of products and, in particular, of machining. In order to be able to mold, engrave, carve and mill metal pieces, and other materials, in complex shapes and the size we need. Any company in the precision machining sector has one or more of these conventional machines, now totally automated, for greater productivity.

We have been taking a look at all the information available on websites and social networks about making such an instrument from the comfort of our own homes. We have found that, really, there are many ideas on the subject and tutorials written on blogs, websites, etc., or through videos on platforms such as Youtube; Which explain what materials are necessary and suitable for their elaboration, as well as the steps to follow and some examples of use.

When giving the computerized application with the CNC to our milling machine, we recommend you take this detail into account. Following the instructions to the letter is vital to obtain a quality result. Constructing the box of the apparatus in question is relatively easy, but once the more technical and electrical issues come into play as far as computerization is concerned, and by also including the motor that allows the automated operation of the milling machine, we must ensure Working with all the previous knowledge of preparation.

The manufacture of any machined element requires the attention to many details to comply with all the established specifications, not only thinking about doing it at home, but also from the own professional installations under the careful supervision of a specified personnel and endowed with the knowledge for its appropriate use. Following the necessary security measures to avoid any type of problem: damages that we can cause ourselves, or the elements with which we work (eg sawing the table instead of the wood); (Eg correct dimensions), do not lose patience ahead of time and, above all, do not be discouraged if the final finish of the workpiece is not perfect; Will be the first victory to get great results at the end of the process.

The milling machine is one of the machines that we can more advantage in the workshop of our house, beyond its great exploitation in the industrial sector, and in particular, precision machining. Here we leave you with the links to different pages where we are explained by text, image and video each and every one of the steps to follow, as well as the recommendations, to get our home with a guaranteed milling machine and perform all those jobs that We have always wanted and never imagined doing.
