Can CNC Machine Center Automatically Change Tools To Save Time

Sep 09, 2019

CNC Machine Center is a digital control machine that can process multiple workpieces in a multi-step process. It is equipped with a tool magazine and can automatically change the tool inside. After the workpiece is clamped once, the digital control system can control the machine to automatically select the tool or change the tool according to different processes, automatically change the speed of the machine spindle, the feed amount and the trajectory of the tool relative to the workpiece, and can complete many other assists. The function, in turn, completes the processing of multiple processes on several planes such as workpiece plane and curved surface. The reduction of the work also reduces the time for workpiece turnover, handling and storage between processes, which greatly shortens the production cycle, thereby enabling users to obtain good economic benefits.


The tool magazine system is a device that provides the tool change and storage requirements required for automated machining. Controlled by a digital system, it can achieve a variety of different processing needs, such as: boring, milling, drilling, attacking and so on. The position of the stored tool is mainly provided by the tool magazine. According to the control of the digital system, the tool is correctly selected and the position is set for the exchange of the tool. If there is no mechanism for automatic tool change, the machining station cannot be replaced sequentially from the tool magazine. Tools are needed to reduce the time. The tool magazine must exist at the same time as the tool change mechanism, and both are indispensable.

Whether it is the 5 Axis CNC Machine Center or the CNC Vertical Machine Center, it has the function of automatically changing tools, which greatly shortens the processing time and reduces the cost in the production process. This is one of the biggest features of the tool magazine system.
