CNC machining refers to Computer Numerical Control (CNC), a digitalised computer that automates, monitors, and controls the movement of an industrial machine. Common machines served by the CNC include CNC milling machines, grinder, laser, robot, water jet cutter, router, lathe, and welder. In large plants, the computer is usually installed in the machines while for... Read More
A computer numerical control (CNC) machine enables machines tools to function automatically by utilising pre determined computerised programs. Early models were first developed in the 1940s and since then have become highly specialised and have enabled great leaps forward to be made in the manufacturing industries. CNC negates the need for a human to manually... Read More
Has someone ever wondered how it could be for sign workers and designers without the proper designing systems to do that? Think of them without CNC Design; it is quite true that their work could be lengthy and tiresome. With the CNC machinery, everything becomes easier and more so cost-effective. CNC Design The CNC machine... Read More
How CNC machinery helps sign makers Without computer numerical control, the sign maker’s job can be a lengthy one. For some people of a certain age, the perception of sign makers (or sign writers) is that of a gentlemen crafting ornate signs in a little shed or workshop. Come the 1980s, CNC machinery became a...

Did you know that the Raspberry PI could be used in a CNC milling machine? The Raspberry PI, since its introduction in 2012, has become an unlikely British success story. With over 10 million PIs sold, it has taken over from the Sinclair ZX Spectrum family as the biggest selling computer system of British origin.... Read More
A look at how CNC machines have been used for the lighter things in life Have you got the Friday feeling just yet? Or are you looking forward to your next holiday? If you’re ready to shoot off to the pub or the airport, the last thing you would want to read is another boring... Read More
Why IKEA’s SPACE10 lab is using digital CNC milling to reawaken old handicrafts If you’re familiar with the Swedish self-assembly giant’s offerings, you would know there’s more to IKEA than Billy bookcases and Asplund wardrobes. There’s the hot dog stand by the tills; also the Swedish meatballs in the café, the children’s section, and the... Read More
A selection of CNC related video clips In the last few weeks, we have written about how CNC machines work, and some of the items they can produce. On some occasions, words aren’t enough to do justice. The average CNC machine is best seen in action, so we’ve opted for 50 frames per second instead.
