Standard EMK-900 Knee Type CNC Mill with GSK Control:
A knee type CNC milling machine is a type of machining tool used to remove material from a workpiece using a rotating cutting tool. It is called "knee type" because of its movable knee that supports the milling table, allowing it to move up and down. The knee can be adjusted manually or automatically to control the depth of the cut.
The machine's main parts include the milling head, spindle, column, knee, table, and feed controls. The milling head houses the spindle, which is the rotating cutting tool that performs the machining operation. The spindle can be powered by an electric motor or another power source.
The column is the vertical component that supports the milling head and provides the rigidity needed for cutting. The knee is attached to the column and supports the milling table. The table can be moved in different directions, allowing the workpiece to be positioned and machined from different angles.
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology is used to control the machine's movements and machining operations. The operator inputs the desired program into the machine's computer, which then moves the spindle and table according to the programmed instructions. This allows for precise and complex machining operations to be performed with high accuracy and consistency.
Knee type CNC milling machines are commonly used in manufacturing and metalworking applications, such as cutting, drilling, and shaping of metal and other materials. They are versatile machines that can perform a wide range of machining operations with great precision, making them a valuable tool in many industries.

Using a knee type CNC milling machine involves the following steps:
Preparation: First, make sure the machine is properly set up and calibrated. This includes checking the coolant level, ensuring the workpiece is properly clamped in place, and verifying that the tooling is correctly installed and secured.
Programming: Input the desired machining program into the machine's computer. This includes specifying the tool paths, cutting speeds, and feed rates. The program can be created using CAD/CAM software or by manually inputting code.
Setup: Use the machine's controls to move the spindle and table into the starting position. Adjust the machine's settings to ensure that the cutting tool is properly aligned with the workpiece.
Machining: Once everything is set up, initiate the machining operation. The machine will automatically move the cutting tool and table according to the programmed instructions, removing material from the workpiece.
Monitoring: While the machine is running, monitor the cutting process to ensure that everything is proceeding as planned. Make adjustments as necessary to the cutting speed or feed rate to optimize the machining operation.
Finishing: Once the machining operation is complete, remove the workpiece from the machine and inspect it for quality. If necessary, perform any additional finishing operations such as sanding or polishing.
Maintenance: After use, clean and maintain the machine according to the manufacturer's instructions to ensure its longevity and proper functioning.
It is important to note that operating a knee type CNC milling machine requires proper training and safety precautions to prevent injury or damage to the machine. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and wear appropriate personal protective equipment when operating the machine.
