Introduction

  • CNC stands for computer numerically controlled.

 

  • As a milling technique, this means that a design can be specified on a computer using cad tools, and that a computer can handle the milling process. 

 

  • The process first became commercially available in the 1960ís following the creation of a universal language, called, APT for automatically programmed tools. 

 

  • The language is able to specify the movements that the drill and table must make.
