CNC Machining forms the core of the manufacturing industry focusing majorly on automation of the production processes. CNC machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers.
CNC is the automated control of machining tools (drills, boring tools, lathes) and 3D printers by means of a computer. A CNC machine processes a piece of material (metal, plastic, wood, ceramic, or composite) to meet specifications by following a coded programmed instruction and without a manual operator.
A CNC machine is a motorized tool and often a motorized platform, which are both controlled by a computer.
Instructions are delivered to a CNC machine in the form of a sequential program of machine control instructions such as G-code and then executed.
