The abbreviation CNC stands
for computer numerical control, and refers specifically to a
computer "controller" that reads G-codeinstructions and drives the machine tool,
a powered mechanical device typically used to fabricate metal components by
the selective removal of metal. CNC does numerically directed interpolation
of a cutting tool in the work envelope of a machine. The operating
parameters of the CNC can be altered via software load program.
CNC can also be meant as
to control the machine tools by a computer. The pattern of work for the
machine to follow, which often involves performing repeated sequences of
actions, is described using a special-purpose programming language.
The introduction of CNC
machines radically changed the manufacturingindustry. Curves are as easy to cut as
straight lines, complex 3-D structures are relatively easy to produce, and
the number of machining steps that required human action have been dramatically reduced.
Brief guide to CNC machine: CNC machine may be
combined into one station to progressively machine a part requiring several
operations. CNC machine today are controlled directly from files created by
CAM software packages. In a sense, the CNC machine represents a special
segment of industrial robot systems. CNC machine can run over night and
over weekends without operator intervention. While CNC machine is awaiting
replacement on the tool, it would run other parts it is already loaded with
up to that tool and wait for the operator. The ever changing intelligence
of CNC machine has dramatically increased job shop cell production.

assistance and support in searching the relevant information. CNC
communities present the websites devoted to useful news, articles, reviews,
QA forum and knowledgebase about any issues and engineering relates items
with an emphasis on important new technology information and a lot of good
information about CNC. Also as an online discussion forum for engineers,
where thousands of engineers freely discuss the technical and business
issues that matter to them.
