About CNC Machining

Jul 22, 2016

CNC Machining is an automated process by which a machine processes a computer file to create highly complex object from plastic or metal. We are CNC Machining Center.

A tool, much like a drill bit, is used to cut away a metal or plastic block in the shape of a 3D object or a mold to be later used in the plastic injection process. Cutting away at an object is a process called subtractive manufacturing because you start with a solid piece of metal or plastic and subtract from it to create the specified part or object.

The tool is controlled along multiple linear or rotational axes. The more axes a machine can control, the more complex part can be made. A 3 axis machine can cut linearly along the X axis (width), the Y Axis (length) and Z axis (depth). Additional axes simply add rotation to the tool along the X, Y or Z axis which allows for more complex parts to be manufactured.

Prior to the invention of computers, these axes were controlled manually by a human operator. Today, a 3D model is translated into a series of step-by-step instructions the CNC machine can use to create the model out of metal or plastic. It's a highly automated process that allows the machine to move the tool along its various axes.
