A CNC, or computer numerical control, is a machining process that involves a drill mounted on a track controlled by a computer. Software dictates the movement of the tool, allowing cutting tasks to be completed using a single set of prompts. A 2D or 3D CAD (Computer Aided Deisng) drawing is made and fed into the computer, which the computer translates into code for the CNC system to execute. Watch a CNC in action below.
