CNC, or Computer Numerical Control, places tools under the direct guidance of a computerized operating system.

Successful, high-quality milling is a combination of three elements:

1. A cutter with many teeth and ideal sharpness for a material

2. Spinning a tool at high enough speed to process a material correctly

3. An appropriate feed rate for advancing the chosen material through the process

CNC allows for extremely close control of these elements. The computerized systems read design information directly from an engineer’s drawings or models, eliminating possibilities for error between design and production.

The CNC milling process takes directions in customized software codes such as NC code, G-code, and ISO code, all converted straight from a project’s CAM or CAD designs. The codes are then translated into the machine’s controls, which run along at least two axes (X and Y), in addition to the tool spindle running in the depth, or Z, axis. Some machining centers allow for controls on up to five unique axes.
