What does CNC stand for?

CNC means Computer Numerical Control. This means a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter. In this way the computer controls the cutting and shaping of the material HOW THE COORDINATES WORK The way coordinates ...

CNC Trimming of Thermoformed Parts

Five-axis CNC trimming produces parts with repeatable, close tolerances. There are several 'keys' to achieving consistent and accurately trimmed parts, but first a description of the equipment and trimming process. CNC trimming equipment has been described as a 'Computer controlled router'. This simplistic description does not do justice to the extensive capabilities of this...
