Glossary Term: CNC Machining


 
 
Computer numerical control (CNC) machinery uses software to autonomously direct the two- or three-dimensional movement of subtractive manufacturing tools such as drills, grinders, lathes, mills, and routers. It is a form of industrial automation based on computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) files and replaces manually guided tasks. CNC machines requires programming and can work with different types of robots.
