Every day, you get out of bed, shuffle through your morning routine, get dressed, eat your breakfast, head out the door, get in a car, bus, train, or other means of transportation, and continue through the rest of your day.
Bear in mind, that 'list' of steps is simply just an abbreviated path through one small part of your day. However, chances are that in every one of your steps, from waking up in the morning to stepping onto the bus- you somehow came into contact with something touched by modern CNC machining
CNC machining is one of the most important and prevalent industrial processes in existence - and that's not an exaggeration. Machining services such as milling, grinding, turning, and drilling make use of sharp cutting tools and advanced technology to manipulate and ultimately shape just about every metal and plastic product you use.
The bed you woke up in? Plane and jointed. The stove you turned on to cook your eggs? Stamped and cast. The dishwasher you put your dishes in? Extruded and formed. The car you got into? You guessed it, made by machines as well. CNC machining services make your car, your bed, your toaster, and virtually anything you can think of more readily available, reliable, and inexpensive. From the simplest object in your daily routine to the plane you could be getting on to escape the winter's storms for a sunny vacation, CNC machining services are to thank - but where did they come from?
While wood working lathes have been around since Biblical times, metalworking lathes didn't make their debut until the 1800's. Back then, the metalworking lathe simply held a piece of metal in a clamp or spindle, and rotated it so that a cutting tool could machine the surface. The operator used cranks and hand wheels to move the cutting tool, and each part needed the operator to repeat the same motions, over and over again until the desired shape and geometry were achieved. This design was improved by Eli Whitney in 1818, with the first milling machine which placed the cutting tool in the rotating spindle.
Today, modern machining services have come a very long way. Modern CNC machining came about in the middle of the 20th century, mostly due to the wartime need for fast and accurate machining for things like weapons and aircraft. During this time, it was discovered that by using an early computer - much more precise measurements could be made by inputting layouts and calculations manually. Based on this technology, the first ever computerized cutting machine was used by the Air Force to machine large wing sections for aircraft. The only downsize? It was huge.
Fast forward to the 1960s and the price and size of automated cnc machining equipment was drastically reduced, even to the point where machining services were a possibility for more industries than just the military. Today, as technology continues to open doors for industries around the world, CNC machining has become the de facto method of achieving fast and extremely accurate results - whether you're manufacturing a toaster or an airplane.
Next time, when you find yourself going about your daily routine - think about how far we've come and where the things you use every day actually came from. In many cases, CNC machining services are the answer.
