CNC Machining & Milling
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining uses programs containing coded alphanumeric data to automatically execute a series of operations. In addition to enabling complex machining operations to be accomplished more easily, CNC machining provides good positional accuracy and repeatability and allows the operator to make changes or improvements with minimum delay or expense. CNC milling is the most common form of CNC machining. CNC mills typically have four axes to enable horizontal and vertical movement, and can perform the functions of both drilling and turning machines. Other CNC applications include sheet-metal press working machines, tube bending machines, welding machines, co-ordinate measuring machines, electronic assembly, tape laying and filament winding.
