What is a CNC machining center

 The CNC machining center refers to processing with CNC machining tools. CNC is an index-controlled machine tool that is programmed and controlled by CNC machining language, usually G code. 

The CNC machining G code language tells the Cartesian position coordinates of the machining tool of the CNC machine tool, and controls the feed speed and spindle speed of the tool, as well as the tool changer, coolant and other functions. Compared with manual machining, CNC machining has great advantages.

 For example, the parts produced by CNC machining centers are very accurate and repeatable; CNC machining centers can produce parts with complex shapes that cannot be completed by manual machining. Numerical control machining technology is now widely promoted. Most machining workshops have NC machining capabilities. 

The common NC machining methods in typical machining workshops include CNC milling, CNC lathe, and CNC EDM wire cutting (electric discharge wire cutting).

 The tools for CNC milling are called CNC milling machines or CNC machining centers. The lathe that performs CNC turning processing is called a CNC turning center. CNC machining G codes can be programmed manually, but usually the machining workshop uses CAM (computer aided manufacturing) software to automatically read CAD (computer aided design) files and generate G code programs to control the CNC machine tools.
