Computerized Numerical Control, or CNC milling, is a ubiquitous process that’s used on countless products, from smartphones to supersonic jets. In general terms, the process uses a cutting tool mounted on rotating spindles to selectively remove material from a block of raw substrate. Cadorath’s technicians use the CNC process for high-precision, repetitive machining on high-volume, complex parts, such as in aerospace applications.
ADVANTAGES OF CNC MILLING
- Fast, accurate and precise cutting of individual parts and components.
- Easily modified, line-by-line and in real time.
- Allows for the use of automatic tool changing systems.
- Computerized inputs can easily control the relative position of cutting tools.
ORIGINS AND DEVELOPMENT
Early milling processes relied on human operators to move and position raw materials for cutting angles, until computers eventually allowed for cutting and shaping to take place in a controlled fashion. CNC milling was also developed first in the United States.
As computers and artificial intelligence become more sophisticated, it’s expected that precision and quality control in CNC milling will become even more precise.
