CNC – Computer Numeric Control

CNC Stands for Computer Numeric Controlled in theĀ Machining industry. It is the only way to go, as it is the easiest and fastest way to machine parts. Manual machining is virtually extinct in the industry today, and NC is too outdated by today’s competitive standards. CNC is better because you can write and edit programs in the machine’s controller, giving you complete control of how it runs. If part of the program is wrong, just go into edit mode and change a few numbers/codes.

Instead of taking a drill press and drilling out holes in your part, a CNC program can be written to save save if you have many holes or parts, especially if they are close tolerance. Just punch in the drilling cycle code, the coordinates of the holes, and you have yourself a simple drilling program. Of course there’s more to it than that, such as machine and tool set-up, but if you have hundreds or thousands of holes to drill, you’re going to want a CNC machine.

  1. Further, to perform these tasks one needs extra
    space. The proposal to develop the first numerically controlled machine was
    commissioned to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from the US Air Force in the year 1949.
    Production lines of several industries have been significantly improved by
    the help of these automated machines.
