Applications of CNC machines for the Automotive Industry
CNC machines are used to manufacture a wide range of components, large and small, in the automotive industry. A CNC machine for the automotive industry can be used to produce:
Engine blocks — CNC machinery can take a large block of aluminum and machine it, using cutting and grinding tools, into the form of a car engine. The CNC process allows for increased automation and operator-free manufacturing after programming, resulting in efficiency gains. Used automotive machine shop equipment can help you realize these gains with a lower investment.
Cylinder blocks — In addition to the engine, CNC machining also can be used to create the cylinder blocks containing the pistons that drive the engine.
Electrical housings and components — CNC machining is ideal for smaller and finer components, such as automotive electrical equipment.
Suspension components — The precision allowed by CNC machining makes it ideal for manufacturing the components that work together to maintain an effective suspension assembly.
Lighting — CNC machines can manufacture components beyond metal parts. By CNC machining plastics and acrylics, manufacturers can quickly and efficiently produce headlight housings and internal lighting.
