CNC Technology on the Move

Although computer numerical control (CNC) units continue to advance in speed and capability to handle the most demanding challenges in multi-axis machining, CNC builders have not neglected the needs of "basic" milling and turning machines. CNCs developed for job-shop VMCs, HMCs, lathes and turning centers are more energy efficient, require less maintenance and–thanks mainly to enhanced graphical user interfaces–are simpler to operate. For this class of machine tools, on-board software for shopfloor programming is becoming more intuitive and flexible.

Across the spectrum of CNC technology, interconnectivity for easier integration with accessories, cellular automation and Web-based networking is rapidly moving to "plug-and-play" status. The power of interconnectivity as a company-wide advantage is best seen at the MTConnect exhibit in the IMTS Emerging Technology Center.
