What is cnc control unit?
A CNC (computer numerical control) control unit is the part of a CNC machine that controls the movement of the machine’s tools and axes. It is responsible for interpreting the instructions that are input into the machine, such as the G-code, and converting them into precise movements of the machine’s components.
The CNC control unit typically consists of a computer, which runs the CNC software, and one or more control boards or drives that control the movement of the machine’s motors. The computer receives the G-code instructions and sends them to the control boards or drives, which then move the machine’s components accordingly. Some advanced CNC machines also include a touch screen interface for easy operation.
It is worth noting that CNC control units are found in various types of CNC machines, such as milling machines, lathes, routers, plasma cutters, etc.
