CNC machining, or computer numerical control machining, is a manufacturing process that utilizes computer-aided machines to cut metal or other materials into intricate patterns and shapes. It offers many unique benefits that make it a valuable technology for a wide range of industries.
Among the outstanding CNC machining benefits for machinists is that it allows them to re-shape and redesign existing parts without having to start from scratch. When they do create a part from scratch, they do so through CAD (computer-aided design) software which enables them to make very intricate designs with minimal wasted material. This method of machining can reduce waste and save money thanks to the computer’s capabilities and automation, instead of relying on human operators. Additional valuable differences make themselves plain depending on the application. In this eBook, we'll look at some of the top CNC machining benefits.
