Why CNC Machining is Important for Manufacturing?
Friday, February 16, 2018

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) refers to - manipulating traditional machines by the use of computer systems. CNC machining has become common as the use of computers has increased in industrial manufacturing processes. Conventional industrial equipment like centre lathes, routers, drills and millers are now operated through computers to achieve better control.

On the surface, it may seem like a simple computer is controlling the machine, but the unique software and control is what really sets the system apart in CNC machining.

Nowadays, CNC machining is found in many industries to aid production as it streamlines the manufacturing process. Some major benefits of CNC machining in manufacturing are:

1. Greater Efficiency
One reason for using CNC machining for production is efficiency. Since computers are used to control machines, it means that all major operations of production can be automated to increase speed and quality of manufacturing. On the other hand, if CNC machine is not used, a technician will have to drill which would take more time.

CNC machines do not have to be switched off, unless maintenance is needed, meaning that the production can go on without any break. Human beings get tired and require rest which means that production must halt. Machines controlled through computers don’t fatigue and do not need break, thus the process of production is streamlined. Such efficiency can never be achieved through a manual process.

2. More Accuracy
Another reason CNC machining is beneficial for manufacturing is its accuracy. CNC machines are programmable and each and every detail of the production process can be fed into the machine. By using CNC machines, identical parts can made with the highest accuracy levels. Programming the specification and designs into the machine leaves no room for mistake or error.

Reducing errors from the manufacturing process eliminates unnecessary waste. CNC machines can manufacture ideal parts to meet requirements of clients. High accuracy level also makes it hard for others to duplicate and steal the design of products. CNC machines allow producing products which otherwise may be impossible to produce through manual processes as human beings are limited in their capabilities.

3. Fabrication
For fabrication, CNC machines are very important. Several operations are involved in fabrication such as welding sheets of metal, shearing, punching holes and flame cutting which can be done safely by using CNC machines. Large machines can be fabricated through CNC according to any desired specification. CNC machines are reprogrammable and flexible which makes them an ideal choice for fabrication.

CNC machining is absolutely essential for manufacturing and it is important that the machine keeps running otherwise major loss would be suffered. But like any other machine, CNC machines also wear and tear and if some parts of a CNC machine get damaged, it can be hard to find a replacement.

This is why we, at JF Berns, provide best quality CNC accessories so that you can fix your CNC machine in case of any damage and keep the production running continuously.
