Specific CNC working operations include but are not limited to grinding, drilling, milling, cutting, broaching and pressing. Machinists in this field must understand the engineering necessary for product design as well as possess a keen knowledge of computer programming pertaining to each of these machining processes. CNC work should be performed by well trained professionals.

Modern machine shops and mass production facilities as well as prototype machining organizations in such varied industries as aerospace, avionics, automotive, agriculture, food and chemical processing, pharmaceutical, military and defense frequently utilize CNC manufacturing in daily operation. The work performed by these facilities should comply with regulations set forth by the International Organization for Standardization.

ISO 9001:2000, ISO 13485:2003, ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16848:2002 in particular relate to and define industry specific quality standards regarding CNC machining. In addition to certification, the capabilities of a specific CNC machine shop should be considered with regards to production specifications and product requirements. Considerations include dimensions, production volume and materials.

Large and small parts produced in continual or short run operations and made of virtually any material including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic or stone can be manufactured through the use of CNC. No matter the specifications, all CNC work begins with the use of specially developed software. Computer assisted design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM), in addition to programs such as photo imaging, allow machinists to develop the schematic and measurements of a specific part.

This information is uploaded into advanced computer software that translates it into CNC code. While several computer languages may be used, G-code is universally recognized by CNC software. The raw material, usually in billet or other stock form, is then loaded into the machine. Often a lathe is used allowing the part to be turned and rotated as needed to complete machining.

The computer then activates a series of commands based on the coding. This dictates the behavior of the machinery, enacting a sequential processing operation. One or more different machines may be needed, each of which should be carefully supervised by a trained CNC professional. The CNC work results in high precision identical parts produced in rapid succession, a process that would take much longer if performed manually.

5 Axis CNC Machining

5 Axis CNC Machining

The normal functioning of CNC machines is done along the three Z, X, and Y axes. The five axes machines have two more axes accessible, which are namely A and B. The addition of the two extra axes makes it easy to cut complex and intricate parts...

CNC Machining

CNC Machining

CNC machining is an electromechanical process that manipulates tools around three to five axes, with high precision and accuracy, cutting away excess material to produce parts and components. The initial designs to be machined by CNC machining are created in CAD...

CNC Milling

CNC Milling

The CNC process was developed in the 1950‘s and took a leap forward in the 1980‘s with the addition of computerization. Unlike other production processes, CNC begins with a rendering by a computer, which creates a two or three dimensional representation of the part to be produced...

G-Code

G-Code

G-code is the name of a plain text language that is used to guide and direct CNC machines. For most modern CNC machines, it isn‘t necessary to know the meaning of G-codes since CAD and CAM software is translated into G or M codes to instruct a CNC machine on how to complete a process...

M-Code

M-Code

Computer numerical control (CNC) is a fundamental part of modern manufacturing. The majority of machines operate using instructions and guidelines that have been downloaded using a CNC program controller...

Types of Machining

Types of Machining

Machining is a manufacturing process used to produce products, parts, and designs by removing layers from a workpiece. There are several types of machining that include the use of a power driven set of machining tools to chip, cut, and grind to alter a workpiece to meet specific requirements...
