What is the difference between CNC and NC?

CNC stands for “computer numerical control” and refers to the use of computer technology to control machine tools, such as lathes, mills, and routers. NC, or “numerical control,” is the earlier version of this technology, in which the control commands were input manually via punch cards or other means, rather than through a computer. In CNC technology, a computer program is used to control the machine tool, allowing for automation, precision, and flexibility in the manufacturing process.

What are the post operations after CNC machining?

Post-operations after CNC machining typically include cleaning, inspection, and packaging of the machined parts. The machined parts may also need to be deburred or polished to remove any sharp edges or burrs. Depending on the application, the parts may also need to be heat-treated or coated. In some cases, the parts may need to be assembled or tested before they are shipped to the customer.

What is CNC Turning operation?

CNC turning is a machining process in which a cutting tool, typically a non-rotary tool bit, is used to remove material from a rotating workpiece to create a desired shape. The workpiece is typically mounted on a spindle, which rotates it, and the cutting tool is moved along different axes to remove material and create the desired shape. CNC stands for “computer numerical control,” which means that the cutting tool is controlled by a computer program rather than a human operator.
