Have you ever wondered how some big manufacturing and industrial equipment and machines function? Back when you were a kid, you might have at least have an idea about how things were made – from Coca-Cola bottles, to different types of loaf bread.
Back then, machines were not all automatic – they needed some type of operational procedures and supervision from machinists and operators in order for them to properly and to appropriately carry out their tasks.
But over the years, machines and technology progressed. They’ve slowly become high-tech, with advancements even on some of the factors involving the processes and the procedures of how machines work.
How It’s Made
Have you ever seen or watched a video from the famous Discovery Channel series “How It’s Made?” You can take your time to see and to Google it but in summary, it’s the series that talks about and discuss how certain things are made – from the output that the machines provide down to the operations that people do with it.
If you noticed, most of the machines are not anymore controlled by people. They operate on their own and they rarely need any type of supervision. CNC or computer numerical controlled technique is the newest and the latest tool in manufacturing, responsible for the automatic movement of these machines and equipment.
We here at Kentucky Contract Manufacturing Technicians have invested a ton in CNC machining, assuring all of our clients with higher-quality and better outputs for the projects and the products they have.
How CNC Machining Works
CNC machining works rather simply – but it would involve programming of the movement of the machines in order for it to produce the correct and the most appropriate actions of the equipment. The regular process and procedure involve the following steps:
- CNC programming or the programming of what desired actions you want your machine to do. This will involve how much speed would the procedure has the style and the designs, and other important factors.
- These programs are then fed to the CNC controller through punch cards (more like smaller computer keyboards) which are then stored in the memory of the computer.
- Once all set, the CNC machine just needs to be set in order for it to do the actions and the movements that the manufacturer or the fabrication company requires.
- Because it’s computer-programmed, there are high chances of it being retained until the time it needs to be changed.
That is the entire process and procedure of how CNC machining works and that’s what’s needed in order for a specific machine or equipment to operate.
How it Benefits the Production Process
But how does CNC machining become an advantage to fabrication companies and manufacturers? How will it help in the enhancement and development of the process? Generally speaking, machines that are numerically controlled would not anymore need the supervision and the attention of laborers and workers.
Other than that, here are some of the other benefits that CNC machining has over the manual and the traditional manufacturing processes.
Can Complete More Complex Tasks
Think about it – would manually-controlled machines be able to perform and complete tasks that are so complex and difficult? It can, but it will take a lot of time and it’s still not going to be perfect. With CNC machining, the only real job is with the programming. Once done, it’s easy-going for the machine and for the manufacturer.
Increases the Volume of Production
With CNC machines, you can greatly increase the production volume because the machines work faster than the average worker and you barely need to be there when the job gets done. This creates a way and a path for laborers and other employees to focus more in terms of other things in relation to manufacturing.
Instead of letting your laborers and your workers operate all of the machines, CNC machining would save you from this and would just require constant checking on the machine to avoid breakage and to be clogged – that’s what the main job will be with CNC machining, the maintenance, and the sustenance.
Manufacturing and Fabrication Flexibility
There are some CNC machines that can help in terms of the simplification of some processes, creating more flexibility and versatility. This flexibility is the reason why some manufacturers and fabrication companies are able to expand and grow while undergoing a certain project.
Better and Higher Output Quality
Since the design and the process of how the machines would work is to be programmed, the product or the output quality would remain constant, allowing uniformity of the quality of the products. It maintains a higher quality than manual procedures because machines work better and more efficiently than humans.
