Most modern day machining practises are performed by computer numerical control (CNC). This is a process when computers are employed to control the position and functionality of the mills, lathes, grinders and other cutting machines. There are many benefits to using CNC machining, as evidenced by this list of advantages below, CNC machining is used to complete complex projects that require a higher level of precision or very repetitive tasks.
- Increased precision over manual machining
- Work pieces can be perfectly replicated over and over again
- Ability to create complex shapes otherwise unachievable with manual machining
- Faster production rates
