CNC stands for “Computer Numerical Control’, a technology wherein the functions performed by a machine tool are directed and controlled by a computer program containing alpha-numeric data. It finds wide application in a lathe, drilling, grinding etc., as also in the formation of various other tools and components.
CNC Turned Components
Its popularity is due to the following reasons:
• High accuracy in the activity to be performed.
• Efficient use of resources as accuracy brings in lesser wastage of all resources.
• Reduced human error. Turning is a machining process wherein a cutting tool follows a helical path in a linear manner while the workpiece keeps on rotating.
• Increasing complexity of parts and components making their production beyond human intervention.
The turning process is typically on:
• Metal etc
