CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers, and grinders. The CNC in CNC Machining stands for Computer Numerical Control.
Under CNC Machining, machine tools function through numerical control. A computer program is customized for an object and the machines are programmed with CNC machining language (called G-code) that essentially controls all features like feed rate, coordination, location, and speeds. With CNC machining, the computer can control exact positioning and velocity. CNC machining is used in manufacturing both metal and plastic parts.
First, a CAD drawing is created (either 2D or 3D), and then a code is created that the CNC machine will understand. The program is loaded and finally, an operator runs a test of the program to ensure there are no problems. This trial run is referred to as “cutting air" and it is an important step because any mistake with speed and tool position could result in a scraped part or a damaged machine.
There are many advantages to using CNC Machining. The process is more precise than manual machining and can be repeated in exactly the same manner over and over again. Because of the precision possible with CNC Machining, this process can produce complex shapes that would be almost impossible to achieve with manual machining.
CNC Machining is used in the production of many complex three-dimensional shapes. It is because of these qualities that CNC Machining is used in jobs that need a high level of precision or very repetitive tasks.
BMC is known for precision CNC machining services. All of our machinists are highly experienced to accomplish some of the most complex machining requirements. Our machine shop has numerous machining centers to machine aluminum, steel, stainless steel, copper, plastics, and many other hard materials. Our in-house machine shop caters to low and high quantity fabrication of machined parts. Our CNC machines are classified into three different categories: vertical, horizontal, and turning.
We have a full-service CNC machine shop geared towards production machining and prototyping. Utilizing state of the art machining equipment with 4 axis capabilities, our CNC machines can perform highly complex machining functions such as drilling, threading, tapping, milling, turning, broaching, keyway slotting, chamfering, beveling, boring and much more. All while reducing the number of setup requirements and thus reducing overall production costs. Along with a variety of manual machines for less complex operations, we are equipped for just about any production CNC machining job that comes our way! We use the latest tool technology to ensure our process is accurate and efficient at all times.
