CNC Machining- What is it?

By Avanti Engineering

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control, which means a computer converts the design generated from Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. These numbers are associated with the coordinates of a graph and the computer controls the movement of the tools. The machine tools are automated by precise programming encoded on a computer command module, usually attached to the machine, instead of being controlled manually or mechanically automated.    The CNC Machine may look like it has standard controls, but the computer's exclusive software and control console are what really makes CNC machining the most reliable operation for machining metal or plastic parts. It’s the CNC machining code) that effectively controls all features of the machine process such as the feed rate, synchronization, position and speed. With CNC machining, the computer can control exact positioning and pace.    The process begins with a CAD drawing which creates the ...
