CNC is the abbreviation for ‘computer numerical control’. It is a computer control technique that drives machine tools to fabricate metal components. In CNC bending a work piece is generally positioned over a die and formed by a punch that forces the material into the die cavity. CNC bending results in numerous shapes as most sheets can be bent to almost any angle.
CNC bending results in consistent and accurate work pieces. Since these machines are controlled by software, setting up for each job is relatively easy. Once a program has been verified and executed for one production run, it can be easily recalled the next time the work piece is run.
eMachineShop makes a wide variety of metal fabricated parts ranging from electronic enclosures to brackets to sculptures.
