Should you not be familiar with this cutting-edge technology, CNC milling is a unique form of “computer numerical controlled” (or CNC) machining. This advanced form of milling is a machining process that performs both drilling and cutting, (as do traditional cutting and drilling machines), but in this case there is sophisticated and highly accurate automation of the machine tools. All operations are undertaken by precisely programmed commands that are encoded into the machine’s computer memory. In other words, human error is greatly diminished as there is no longer any need for manual control utilizing hand wheels or levers. Even mechanically automated cams are vastly improved upon with this state-of-the-art equipment. With computer numerical controlled technology, computers, rather than people, perform the integral part of the process of milling control, resulting in fewer mistakes and savings on labor.
