Development of CNC Engraving Machine for Cutting EPS

Jang Rim Chol, a researcher at the Faculty of Mechanical Science and Technology, has developed a CNC engraving machine for cutting an EPS model.

The machine ensures high geometric accuracy and surface finish in cutting EPS models for lost form casting.

It consists of a computer, a control device, a mechanical system, an exhaust fan, etc.

What is new about it is the development of a spindle unit for EPS cutting and a rolling guide using ball bearings. Also, it has a rotary table that can change its rotating axis vertically and horizontally, so the machine offers satisfactory cutting of the EPS model of a spur gear whose diameter is 2 meters. The machine is also applicable to complex and large EPS models such as large bevel gears, housings and manikins.
