CNC Machining Basic Knowledge

What is CNC machining?

CNC machining stands for computer numerical control and basically means that a machine is controlled by a set of commands from a controller. This code normally comes in the form of a list of coordinates known as G-code. Any machine controlled by this code can be referred to as a CNC machine, be it a milling machine, a lathe or even a plasma cutter.

The movement of CNC machines can be defined by their axes; these are X, Y and Z with A, B & C axes for more advanced machines. The X, Y, Z axes refer to the main cartesian vectors and the A, B, C axes refer to rotation about these axes. CNC machines typically operate in up to 5 axes.

What does a CNC machine do?

A CNC machine fabricates intricate, precise parts for diverse industries such as automotive, aerospace, and medical equipment, guaranteeing exceptional accuracy and uniformity.

3D printing vs. CNC machining

3D printing and CNC machining are two distinct manufacturing methods. 3D printing creates objects by layering material based on digital designs, making it ideal for intricate, complex shapes. On the other hand, CNC machining carves precise components from solid materials, offering exceptional accuracy. In the choice between the two, 3D printing is preferred for complex, custom shapes, while CNC machining excels in producing robust, high-precision parts.

CNC machining vs. injection moulding

CNC machining and injection moulding are distinct manufacturing processes. CNC machining involves carving parts with precision from solid materials, making it suitable for smaller volumes, intricate designs, and prototyping. On the other hand, injection moulding creates parts by injecting molten material into moulds, making it ideal for high-volume production of identical components. The choice between the two depends on your specific production needs and design complexities.
