The development of production technologies is an integral part of the industrial revolution that has changed the life of our planet enormously over the past century. What role did widely understood CNC services play here?
When writing about CNC services, we mean all kinds of computer-controlled material processing. In order to produce a more or less complex device, appropriate parts are needed for it. Designers of various utility items, from the simplest to those with an extremely complex structure, need components with strictly defined parameters such as shape, hardness, surface smoothness, color, etc. Mass production of various products requires serial production of components. Before computerization was discovered, in factories all production activities were performed and controlled by people – even when a given processing was performed by a machine, it still required constant control of a specialized operator, on whom the quality of the final product depended. In the era of constantly developing computerization, it has become possible to create projects, complex instructions that are loaded into the computer processor, which then controls the operation of the machine virtually unattended. Modern equipment for processing materials (e.g. by laser cutting) enables extremely precise cutting, grinding, drilling, bending, stretching, milling, etc. In modern production technologies, the precision of components is also becoming more and more important, and high repeatability of the elements produced is extremely important. Technologies using a laser beam combined with computer control allow to achieve excellent results in this area.
CNC machining – what materials
Computer controlled processing machines can be used on a variety of materials. In this way, the following are processed:
– various metals,
The processing of each of the above materials is characterized by a different specificity. The precise processing of the material requires a thorough knowledge of its specificity and the necessary equipment. Soft aluminum behaves differently in processing and hard stainless steel completely different. Few companies in Poland specialize in the precise processing of high-quality stainless steel.
CNC machining is a very high production pace while maintaining extremely high precision. Components made with the help of CNC services are used practically everywhere, in the automotive, medical, textile, entertainment, construction, installation industries, etc.
