CNC machines are amazing pieces of kit. With just the touch of a few buttons they can produce a whole range of parts, no matter how obscure or complex. But, you might be asking yourself, exactly how do CNC machines work? How can they be so precise?
CNC stands for computer numerical control, which tells you everything you need to know about the inner workings of these innovative machines.
First, you send us the CAD (computer aided design software) file for the part you want machining. You don’t even have to convert the file into data – our CNC manufacturing machines do that for you!
The machine’s inner computer turns your design into a set of numbers that act as co-ordinates. These co-ordinates control the movement of the cutter, shaping the metal into a part made with precision like no other.
The benefits that come with CNC machining are unrivalled:
– They are faster, stronger and more precise than we humans.
– A single CNC machine can manufacture a whole range of different parts, with complete accuracy.
– They can be used to produce everything from precision diesel engine parts to bespoke trophies.
– CNC machining technology is incredibly user-friendly.
With the technology to machine parts of all sizes, these sophisticated machines are used in industries including printing, motorsport, nuclear, battery, pharmaceutical, diesel engine and food.
Here at B&A Precision Engineering, our fleet of CNC machines offers the ultimate in precision. Not only that, but our machines ensure a fast turnaround time, minimising disruption to your operations. It’s little surprise we’re one of the most respected CNC machining companies in the UK!
