The 3 most innovative types of machining

 In news en

Traditional precision machining systems are giving way to new machining processes with the aim of gaining precision and reducing energy consumption. In this blog, we tell you everything you need to know about these new techniques that are taking over the industry.

 

New machining methods

 

Laser machining

 

One of the most widely used advanced thermal energy-based machining processes is laser machining. It constitutes an alternative to traditional material removal techniques and can be used for the processing of a variety of materials, namely, metals, ceramics, glass, plastics, and composites.

 

Laser machining presents numerous advantages and is characterized by the absence of tool wear, tool breakage, chatter, machine deflection, and mechanically induced material damage, phenomena that are usually associated with traditional machining processes.

 

It is produced thanks to the fusion and vaporization of the material, concentrating in very specific areas at high temperatures.whereby

 

Ultrasonic machining

 

This process supports more popular methods like drilling, turning, and grinding. Through the vibration of a tool and the application of an abrasive liquid, the excess material is eliminated from the piece.

 

In this way, we avoid excessive accumulation of energy and contact between the tool and the manufactured part.

 

For more information, you can consult our blog on Ultrasonic Machining.

 

Water jet machining

 

Undoubtedly very novel, waterjet cutting is one of the new revolutionary processes. This high precision system applies a jet of water under high pressure on the desired material, shaping and cutting the material until the desired finish is obtained.

 

It is capable of making perfect and very precise cuts, with a resolution up to 20 times higher than other conventional methods. In addition, it does not add heat up the pieces during the machining process, thus presenting a great advantage over other methods.
