CNC programming software creates program codes and instructions used to run a machine tool controlled by a computer. Each unique part requires its own CNC program.
In general terms, CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control and has been around since the early 1970's (often referred to as NC programming). CNC has touched almost every form of manufacturing process. CNC machines typically replace (or work in conjunction with) some existing manufacturing process/es. CNC benefits include improved automation, consistent and accurate work pieces, and flexibility.
