cncToday CNC technology is truly amazing but still compared to co2 laser and fiber laser technology its acclimated rather slow.  What we see now is CNC being retrofitted more and more into various machine tools.

Many machines which are created for the sole purpose of being a CNC they’re  still retro fitted such as milling machines and lathes. CNC machines are not only retro fitted but also custom built for using CNC operation. CNC equipment can be retrofitted or built specifically for CNC opereration such as 3D printers, pick and place machine, routers, cnc plasma cutters, laser cutters, laser engravers, and milling machines.


What Can A CNC Do?

There is virtually no limit to what a CNC can do. Computer Numerical control (CNC is the acronym) is the automation of machine tools that are operated by precisely programmed commands in which computers play an integral part of the control. CNC machines are responsible for almost all modern day machining operations in manufacturing industries. When CNC was first invented it was a technology that was adapted to fit existing machines.
