What Types of Motors Are Used on CNC Machines?


Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines control operating tools by converting instructions into actions. When alphanumerical codes are entered into a CNC machine, movement is triggered. Tools attached to the machine include laser cutters, routers and cutting tips. The CNC principle has been used in machines since the 1940s, upgrading with advances in computer technology. CNC […]

Types of CNC Machines


CNC, or “computer numerical control,” refers to how operators and engineers can command the functions of a manufacturing tool or machine through a CNC machine computer programming language called g-code. Developed in the late 1950s, this language instructs the machine how to cut, grind, shape, mold or melt a source material like metal or plastic into whatever finished product the […]
