CNC machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts. CNC refers to computer numerical control.
Today we will be comparing CNC methods to 3D Printing and additive manufacturing in terms of their places within a circular economy. Transportation waste is not as large of a concern when it comes to CNC machining. It is important to have one’s material ready before they are to place the material within a CNC center. The layout of one’s factory or fabrication environment is more critical towards this type of waste. Similar thoughts can be arrived at in terms of additive manufacturing. Based on the […]
