What is the CNC machining processes?

CNC machining, standing for Computer Numerical Control machining, is like the high-tech version of traditional manual machining. Imagine the traditional way of shaping metal or other materials by hand, using lathes, mills, or drills, where a skilled machinist controls all the movements. Now, upgrade that with today’s technology: instead of manual control, we use computers to tell the machines exactly how to move and what to do.

Here’s how it works: In CNC machining, we feed a computer with a digital blueprint or a set of instructions, known as a program. This program dictates everything from how fast the machine should work, how deep the cuts should be, to even when to turn or change direction. This level of control makes CNC machining incredibly precise, capable of producing parts with tolerances tighter than a human hair.

CNC machines are a blend of mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and even optical technologies, making them highly integrated systems. They’ve revolutionized manufacturing, allowing for the automated production of parts that need to be incredibly precise, such as those used in aerospace, medical devices, and automotive industries. For instance, advancements in energy efficiency and monitoring in CNC machines, as explored by Mohammadi et al. (2017), highlight the shift towards more sustainable and optimized production processes

In essence, CNC machining takes the guesswork and the handwork out of making complex parts, making manufacturing both more efficient and accurate. It’s a cornerstone of modern production technology and computer-integrated manufacturing, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in precision and automation. The integration of open CNC systems and energy-aware scheduling algorithms, as introduced by Deng et al. (2017), further exemplifies the innovation in CNC machining, allowing for high precision, efficiency, and reduced power consumption.

How does CNC involved in cooling plates development

Coolant channel plate can be made from CNC process. CNC coolant channel plate can be finalized without any mold investiment, so it is naturally suitable for proto type sample development. Channel plate is a part where cooling liquid run through, it can be consideder as main body of a cooling plate.

Coolant ports, also called water inlets and outlets, can be made from CNC process. It connects cooling plates with tube line system, they are the joints where cooling liquid come and go. In order to make rigid connections, the process accuracy needs to be high.

Advantages for cooling plates gained from CNC process?

Challenges and way out in making CNC cooling plates

Use CNC+FSW to replace furnance welding after CNC.

Make and use special holder after one side milling.

Make two sides carving, to simulate the same exterior looking as stamping solution.

What makes XD Thermal's CNC process more advanced?

Equipped with automated special-purposed CNC stations. - XD THERMAL

Equipped with automated special-purposed CNC stations. Different processes will be assigned to special stations. Some of them work only for mounting hole drilling, some of them work only for channel carving.

By using special-purposed CNC stations, less fixtures can be achieved. It brings down cycle time, and makes accuracy maintained in one single fixture.By using special-purposed CNC stations, less fixtures can be achieved.
