2 axis cnc nibbling machine? Answered

300 * 400 X Y axis movement cnc nibbling machine. we want to made college project . plz help me out with any better idea?


Study the CNC machines that are here and documented.

Check out commercial power drive nibbelers (I guess your not going to make one.

Put the 2 together.

If you intend to use this in the future I would make it a big as you can - generally your going to find bigger is preferable to too small.

thanks i m also thinking as to put nibbler & cnc table together but problem is nibbler direction ..... it cut only in forwards direction not in backward. i m thinking about to cut a contour shape, so what you suggest? what will b the possible movement of the nibbler for cutting circular shape? is it possible we give rotating movement to nibbler and automate it . and it rotate with possible circular profile? what will be the design?

I am not sure what advantage a nibbler would have over a mill. The nibbler has to have a rotational axis to point the tool into the cut. It also has the disadvantages of requiring an initial hole and having a wide kerf.

I think it might be easier to make make a simple mill.


dear we r assigned to do that specific job. we know its disadvantages but we have to do that project in every possible way. i m just facing problem in selection of nibbler available in market & then its rotation? have you any better idea?

Why nibble and not just plasma ?
