October 2016 – CNC Machining Explained

Published on: 10/10/2016

GD Rectifiers reveals how the CNC Machining process works; programming, materials and benefits

CNC Machining

A CNC machine features a micro or mini computer that acts as the controller unit of the machine. CNC is an abbreviation for Computer Numerical Control and the program of instructions is fed directly in to the computer via a small board.

In CNC machines, the program is stored in the memory of the computer, this is so the programmer can easily write the codes and edit the programs requirements. These programs can be used for different parts and can be used across various projects

CNC machines offer great flexibility and computational capability as new systems can be incorporated in to the CNC controller by reprogramming the unit.

CNC Machining: How Does It Work?

CNC machines are used to cut and shape pieces of material, including: metal, aluminium and steel. The cutting processes and dimensions are inputted into the machine by machine operators that have extensive training on CNC machining. The machine operators’ role is to feed accurate details into the machine, load the tools required to carry out the work and then supervise the machines work.
