CNC machining is a process in manufacturing where a company uses pre-programmed computer software to determine the movements of the machinery and tools. CNC machines are making parts around the world for almost every industry.
The company can use the process to control many different kinds of complicated machinery, from lathes to grinders to routers and mills.
All automated motion control machines have three primary components – a command function, a drive/motion system, and feedback system. With the CNC machine, the operator can easily do three-dimensional cutting tasks with a few different prompts.
CNC is short for computer numerical control, and the process is often better than using manual controls. CNC machining is the process of using a computer-driven machine tool to produce a part out of solid material in a different shape. The company doesn’t have to use live operators to guide and prompt the commands of the machining tools using wheels, buttons, and levers, maximizing efficiency and reducing the margin for human error.
