What should we consider before purchasing CNC milling machine?

So you want to buy a CNC mill, hello everyone and welcome back to add man TAICNC. Today we're going to start a series of videos on how to purchase a CNC mill. What are the things that you need to think about and consider when you're purchasing a machine like this? The number one thing that you need to consider is your budget. You need to define your budget ahead of time and stay in your budget. Not only that, you need to make sure that you budget for everything, not just the cost of the machine.

So we need to account for things like not only buying the machine but getting the machine to the location. We're going to use it at installing the machine, hooking up the machine. And then also any accessories that machine is gonna need. Tool holders work, holding coolant and possibly repairs for that machine. If you buy a used vertical machining center, you may need to do some extensive repairs on it. It all depends on what kind of machine you're gonna buy after our budget. We need to specify our machine.

How to choose the right CNC milling machine

First, you need to understand the type of work used for CNC machines, which may be the manufacture of metal parts, moulds or personal preferences. This is important as different machines can handle different grades of material. The machine you choose will also depend on your production needs such as:

CNC machine tool
  • Size of your workplace and frequency of utilisation: Massive production may require industrial-grade milling equipment, whereas scaled-down manufacturing operates can use a commercial quality milling machine.
  • Speed: Getting the job done quickly translates to increased production. But, sometimes a slower CNC machine means more accuracy, not to mention it comes at a lower cost.
  • The amount of precision needed: There’s a huge price difference in a CNC milling machine that provides a tolerance of .0001 and one that provides .001.

Choosing the right CNC machine depends on your actual machining needs. Usually, we recommend the right CNC machine for the customer according to the size of the part that the customer needs to machine, the material of the workpiece, the accuracy requirements, and the required output per hour.

How much does a CNC mill cost?

The cost of CNC mill is closely related to its configuration. Although sometimes you will see that the CNC mill looks almost the same, the implementation of the function is the same, but the price difference is also very large according to different configurations, profit the CNC controller we are familiar with.

  • Small CNC mill price range $10k-30k
  • Standard CNC mill price range $45K-70k
  • Large CNC mill price range $90-120k
  • 5-axis CNC mill price range $150K-300k

These are just rough calculations. The price of different sizes of CNC machines varies from brand to brand. When choosing a CNC machine, we should consider our actual manufacturing needs more.

What are the additional costs and fees of CNC machine?

In addition to the machine itself, you'll need to purchase a computer-aided design (CAD) software package in order to create the designs. Those usually run anywhere from $2,000 to $15,000. Training usually costs anywhere from $200 to $500 per day.
