Precision machining is, effectively, the mechanism for creating the metal components the world needs to function. But there’s a problem: precision machining is difficult. CNC machines - the mini-factories that power the world’s manufacturing economy - aren’t easy to use: even a simple component can be made with them in billions of possible ways, and if the machine is programmed non-optimally, then the manufacturer wastes resources – both time and materials.
If we could remove that redundancy in the system – for example, by improving scheduling, tool usage or operator ability – we could dramatically improve how effectively manufacturers are able to operate, with considerable benefits for us all.
In this white paper by CloudNC, we identify potential solutions for these solutions that could point towards a new future for precision machining, and a more efficient way to manufacture components.
