Although many machinists have become accustomed to this form of machining, not all of them are aware of the logic behind it.
Here are the main benefits of using CNC machining over other forms of machining:
As the name suggests – CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control – this form of machining relies heavily on computer control. This translates in a higher level of automation, which is the optimal solution for high precision work.
Modern CNC machines are suitable for all types of cutting methods. CNC turning processes make it possible to create complex external and internal geometries, including generating all kinds of threads, while CNC milling is better for making holes, slots, and repeated motions to create intricate 3D shapes
