Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Computer numerical control (CNC), part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
(SOUND) CNC are computer numeric controlled milling and turning machines…allow the shop to produce a wide variety of parts.…Some of these are stand alone machine parts, while others support the sheet…metal operation by reaming holes adding in pockets or finishing secondary operations.…Once you load the tools in the CNC machine, load the program, the machine…takes care of most of the operation. You'll also have operations like reaming…holes that can be done manually on a regular mill or lathe.…The shop also has a CNC Lathe for doing turned and threaded parts.…
This machine can produce parts up to eight inches in diameter.…Both the CNC Mill and the CNC Lathe, as well as the Manual Mill Lathe are great…support equipment for the sheet metal operations.…
