CNC Machining (Computer Numerical Control Machining) is a highly automated process where pre-programmed computer software controls the movement of tools in machinery. CNC Machining is considered a subtractive manufacturing process, as material is removed from the stock piece.
There are many tools available for CNC machines, allowing for a wide range of processes, features and finishes to produce a uniquely designed part. This includes processes like drilling, milling, turning, grinding and more. The CNC process is effective for a wide range of materials and can be automated, allowing for high precision, repeatability and accuracy. Once the program is written for the machine’s computer, the part can be replicated with almost complete accuracy an infinite number of times!
Some of the materials that can be CNC machined include: aluminum, zinc, steel, and stainless steel. Many machine shops also work with billet in aluminum, steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze, tool steels, extrusions and some plastics.
