The Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and CNC routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts.
In CNC manufacturing, machines are operated via numerical control, where in a software program is designated to control an object. The language behind CNC machining is alternately referred to as G-code, & M-code and it’s written to control the various behaviours of a corresponding machine, such as the speed, feed rate and coordination.
