You’ve heard the term CNC machining center, but what is it exactly? Our next series of articles will cover what a CNC machining center does and how machine shops utilize them in their contract manufacturing and prototypes to production manufacturing processes.
Use in Various Types of Manufacturing
CNC machining centers play an importer role in die manufacturing and in the machining of various metal parts and components. For instance, a CNC machining center may be used to make dies for automotive body components. It can also be used to drill, bore, grind, and thread different types of parts. CNC machining centers are frequently used when manufacturing parts and components for the automotive, aerospace, and defense industries, among others.
The ability to perform automatic tool changes is a key feature of CNC machining centers. They can be programmed by the machinist to process up to four sides without changing the setup or interrupting the process. Automated tool changes allow for more accuracy, stability, and durability, thus enhancing the overall quality of the end product.
