Computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining has become a staple in the manufacturing industry. Because of its widespread use, material flexibility, precision and accuracy, the technology is widely adopted by a number of industries. From automotive to medical and even military, we take a look at some of the industrial applications of CNC milling machines.
As the design and manufacturing industry continues to experience welcomed changes, product lifespan, manufacturing cycle and turnaround times have become greatly reduced. Year on year, manufacturers continue to push out several updates and versions of new and existing brands, promising exciting upgrades that almost immediately crashes the demand for previous versions. This has consequently led to fewer and fewer mass production and more consideration for low-volume manufacturing.
For many small and large businesses, the benefits of outsourcing cannot be overstated. As most companies cannot handle all aspects of their businesses, it is only natural to look to external suppliers to and cultivate successful outsourcing partnerships.
CNC Machining is one of the most effective means for rapid prototyping. The process allows you to take advantage of the computer numerical control to deliver high-quality prototypes in the quickest turnaround period. Here are some more reasons why CNC machining should one your preferred technique for making rapid prototypes of your design.
