The CNC drilling machine is a drilling machine controlled by a CNC (computer numerical control) system. The modern CNC drilling machine is one of the most popular types of machines for precision depth accomplishment. It is a CNC drill tool for hard material drilling tasks. Programmed CNC drill is a profoundly studied and perfect machine working model. Due to its multi-tasking and convenient frame design, it can handle multiple types of hole drilling and related boring tasks at a drilling station. Regarding to the history of drilling machine equipping CNC control, it began from a digital drilling machine that evolved from the design of a traditional drilling machine in the mid-20th century, and then numerically controlled digital technology, so-called semi digital controlled drilling. It is a diversified version of the drilling center, which widely used in various industries for professional and precise purposes, and has contributed to a wide range of industrial achievements for drilling tasks required by customers.
Under the numerical control system, the drilling machine with CNC system can perform many drilling tasks. Generally, the radial drilling machine or radial arm press is a geared drill head, which is installed on the arm assembly and can move the arm within a certain range to reach the range. Under normal circumstances, the most important components of a radial drilling machine are the arms, columns, and the drill heads. These three parts constitute radial drilling to the greatest extent. First, the drill head of the radial drilling machine can be moved, adjusted in height, and should be able to rotate. Radial drilling machinery usually consists of heavy, vertical columns mounted on a large base. The column supports a radial arm that can be raised and lowered to accommodate workpieces of different heights. Secondly, in addition to its compact design, the radial drilling machine can also position its drill head on the workpiece through the radial arm mechanism. The tasks that radial drilling machines can perform include many machining tasks, such as hole boring, countersinking, and grinding off small particles in masonry works. This is the designed process.
Now, because working trends in the industry are very different from before, manufacturers are more aware of how to make their products versatile. Many spindle heads, corresponding shanks, and other components allow the connection unit to install milling tools, and since the machining targets may also involve milling and drilling, some manufacturers produce CNC milling and drilling machines for the market. The milling and drilling machine is a machining process based on milling machinery and derived from the drilling function. The milling and drilling machine uses a spinning tool to remove material by advancing the tool into one or more workpieces under the control of a CNC system or human operator. This processing method can be done in different directions. In addition to one direction drilling, milling also covers a variety of operations, and the range is very wide, from a single tiny part to large and heavy milling operations.
The development of this particular type of machines is progressing smoothly in the entire industrial field, and the machining center is widely used in various industries and made extensive contributions to the industry.
Due to its practical value, the development of drilling methods is very popular in industry. Compared with traditional lathes, even with additional drilling tools, it is difficult to achieve production and effective performance of workpieces with a specific depth. With this expectation, the following development and machine center concepts were gradually formed. The CNC drilling machine is a single function machine operated by a CNC system. On the other hand, the term of machining center can be used to describe various drilling and milling machine and operated by CNC, which are equipped with several key but sometimes optional accessories. They are equipped with the body, such as tool magazine, ATC (automatic tool changer), power tool turret, CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine), multi-axis working tables, and so on and so forth.
