CNC machining. CNC machining is an automated subtractive manufacturing process of utilizing computer controlled machines for industrial applications. The term CNC stands for “computer numerical control,” which is the process of using programmed machines such as lathes, grinders, and mills to produce high-precision complex parts for manufacturers. At Roberson Machine Company, our CNC machines streamline the production of many products for customers in various industries, from aerospace and automotive to medical and recreation sectors.
Bypassing manual machining limitations, CNC machining delivers three-dimensional cutting utilizing machines such as CNC mills, grinders, routers, and more. CNC machining delivers complex, precise products in half the time of other methods and at far better quality.
What is CNC Machining?
CNC machining is an ideal solution for a wide range of custom industrial manufacturing applications. Unlike manual machining, CNC machining is versatile and adaptable to provide customized parts, whether you need key and coil inserts, finely welded parts, or many other types of custom machined parts.
CAD software creates the two-dimensional and three-dimensional models for the required CNC machined parts. With this design, the CNC machine knows what the final part looks like. The four stages of CNC machining are:
- Stage 1: Creating the CAD Model
- Stage 2: Converting the CAD Model to CNC File
- Stage 3: Configuring the CNC Machine
- Stage 4: CNC Machining Operation Execution
Before CNC machining begins, the 2D or 3D model of the final design is required.
None of our CNC machines understand CAD language directly. CNC machines only recognize movement based on coordinates, which come from a file called G-code. On most of our machines, we convert CAD design to G-code using CAM software.
Prior to starting the manufacturing process, the CNC machine must be set up the correct way. Think of this as configuring a printer before printing. Our machinists verify that the workpiece is properly positioned on the machine, as well as numerous other vital functions.
Once the configuration stage is complete, the machine operation can begin. For this, our machinists execute the program on the display panel of the CNC machine.
