    What are the advantages and disadvantages of CNC machining?

    Wang Tywaung

    CNC machining has the following advantages:
    ① The number of tooling is greatly reduced, and complex tooling is not required to process parts with complex shapes. If you want to change the shape and size of the part, you only need to modify the part processing program, which is suitable for new product development and modification.
    ②Stable processing quality, high processing precision, and high repeatability, which can meet the processing requirements of aircraft.
    ③ The production efficiency is high in the case of multi-variety and small batch production, which can reduce the time for production preparation, machine tool adjustment and process inspection, and reduce the cutting time due to the use of the optimal cutting amount.
    ④ It can process complex profiles that are difficult to process by conventional methods, and even process some unobservable processing parts.

    The disadvantage of CNC machining is that the machine tool is expensive and requires a high level of maintenance personnel.


    CNC machining has great advantages over manual machining. For example, the parts produced by CNC machining are very accurate and repeatable; CNC machining can produce parts with complex shapes that cannot be completed by manual machining.

    CNC machining technology has been widely promoted. Most machining workshops have CNC machining capabilities. The most common CNC machining methods in typical machining workshops are CNC milling, CNC turning and CNC EDM wire cutting (EDM wire cutting), Improve industrial efficiency.


    Advantages of CNC machines:
    1. Accurate machining
    2. Very little time required to complete a job
    3. Safe operation
    4. Reduction in the number of operators required to operate the machine
    5. no possibility of human error
    6. reliable
    7. Even very complex designs can be produced
    8. low maintenance requirements
    9. they are versatile
    10. uniformity of design
    11. they can operate 24 hours a day
    This is all I can think of after ten years in the industry
