Like all industries, modern manufacturing is rapidly changing. One particular thing driving this growth is CNC machines. A Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machine makes it possible to scale manufacturing without losing quality and accuracy. These machines were first introduced in the 1940s and 50s, and they started with “punched tape” technology. Today, this technology has come a long way. Now, CNC machines rely on Computer-Aided Design (CAD) files to create prototype parts. Because it’s all controlled by the computer, these are highly technical and highly automated products. There’s no more need for manual intervention within the manufacturing process, and this saves time and money. Let’s explore the different ways in which CNC machines have impacted manufacturing today. One of the biggest and most obvious influence is the increase in manufacturing speed. There are countless man hours saved by automation and pre-established movements. Because a computer file is generated before commands are extracted, the machine knows exactly what to do. There is no more human intervention throughout the manufacturing process, and this is big news. Not only are they faster, but they can operate...
