It can be a big task to transition from one-off projects to production using a CNC router. The associated costs and space needed alone may seem monumental at first glance. Some important things to consider are-
Capacity and throughput: Make sure the CNC router can handle the increased workload, which may require upgrading to a larger or more powerful machine or adding additional routers to the production line.
Tooling and accessories: Different types of tooling and accessories may be needed for production work. Confirm that the CNC router is equipped with the appropriate tools and accessories for the production process.
Workholding and fixturing: Proper workholding and fixturing are crucial to successful production. Evaluate the fixturing needs of the production process and ensure that the CNC router has the necessary tools and fixtures.
Material handling: Production often involves larger quantities of material, so consider the material handling capabilities of the CNC router and ensure it has the necessary tools and systems to handle the increased volume.
Quality control: Consistently producing high-quality parts is important in any production setting. Establish a thorough quality control process to ensure that the CNC router is meeting the desired level of quality and tolerances.
Following these pointers will help you hit the ground running if you do decide to integrate CNC router technology into your production facility.
