What is CNC Machining?
The invention of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machining
is one of the most important additions to the machining industry. These machines were developed to allow the common machining processes such as turning, boring and milling to be automated. Automating these processes allows repeated and complex cuts to be made more accurately than by conventional machining methods.
Conventional machining requires that a highly skilled operator constantly monitors the processes in order to ensure accuracy and precision. This brings the possibility and probability of human error over time. Projects that require tight tolerance and precision may suffer as a result. CNC machining relies on the execution of a computer program to convey the cutting instructions and delivers consistently accurate results with a remarkably tight tolerance.
