Limit switches are incredibly important on a CNC machine. Due to the danger inherent with CNC machines it is necessary to put some fail safes in place. Limit switches help a lot with the safety aspect but also are very important for giving CNC machines a known zero position, which it can return to at any point.
Limit switches will help prevent a CNC machine’s axis from traveling beyond its limit and potentially causing damage and will also allow; should a power cut occur during operation, to return to the machines known zero which could safe an otherwise wasted job.
