CNC machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. CNC stands for "computer numerical control" and is the process by which Muskogee Technology (MT) fabricates many of its parts for customers in an array of industries.
CNC machine programs typically fall into two categories: CAM technology (CNC programming with use of CAM software) and conversational technology (CNC programming at the machine without use of CAD/CAM software). At MT's machines are capable of both technologies. Included in their arsenal of machinery you will find water jet, plasma and torch cutters, as well as lathes, milling, bending and forming machines.
To the onlooker, a CNC system might resemble a regular set of computer components, but the software programs and consoles employed in CNC machining distinguish it from all other forms of computation. The dimensions for a given part are set into place with computer-aided design (CAD) software and then converted into an actual finished product with computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software. CNC machining rapidly advances shop productivity by automating the highly technical and labor intensive processes. Additionally automated cuts dramatically improve both the speed and the accuracy of the parts being created.
