A Little Bit About CNC Machining
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) refers to the use of computers and unique software to control machine tools. Numerical control allows the user to program the machine to control features such as speed, feed rates, positioning and more. Advantages to CNC machining include:
CNC equipment is capable of accurately producing even the most complex 3-D shapes — including many that cannot be achieved via manually operated machining.
CNC machines generate the same exact parts over and over again, without variation, for consistent, high-quality components.
- Extended Use
CNC machines are ideal for high-production runs — they can run virtually nonstop for extended periods of time, requiring shutdown only for maintenance.
