CNC, or computer numerical control, refers to the fact that these devices are guided by computers that use exact commands to drill, cut, and shape materials. The capacity to make items with extremely tight tolerances and reproducibility has changed the manufacturing business thanks to CNC machines.

The production of the products we use on a daily basis, from consumer goods to medical devices to automotive and aerospace, depends heavily on CNC machining. These machines are very adaptable tools in any manufacturer's toolbox since they can deal with a wide variety of materials, such as metals, polymers, and composites.
