What is CNC machining?
It’s subtractive fabrication
CNC stands for computer numerical control. CNC machines are electro-mechanical devices that manipulate tools using pre-programmed computer software. With CNC machining, we accomplish three-dimensional cutting tasks with a single set of prompts. This code dictates everything – from the movement of the cutting head and the part to spindle speed, RPMs, etc. – to achieve subtractive fabrication. CNC machining removes layers of material from a stock piece – known as a blank or workpiece – to produce a custom-designed part.
Simply put, bits of material are subtracted in the production process, making it the opposite of additive manufacturing, e.g. 3D printing. Additive manufacturing assembles layers of material to produce the desired form. Whereas subtractive fabrication deforms and displaces stock material into the desired shape.
The automated nature of CNC machining effectively and efficiently produces high precision pieces. It does so cost-effectively when fulfilling one-off and medium-volume production runs. Yet, whilst CNC machining has advantages over other manufacturing processes, there are also cons. The degree of complexity and intricacy is limited. Depending on the requirements of the end product, there is a range of complex CNC machining processes available to us – from mills to turning. This process is suitable with metals, plastics, wood, glass, foam, composites, and more. CNC machining typically has applications in a variety of industries. We have experience with the Aerospace, Leisure and Motor Trade Industries as well as the MOD. These fields require much higher tighter tolerances than other industries.
