Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is an automated fabrication process in which computers control machine tools via programming inputs to manufacture various products or prototypes. It is the unique software and control console the machine uses that sets the system apart from other manufacturing techniques. Common machine tools used in conjunction with precision CNC machining include grinders, mills, lathes, and routers.

These machines are capable of drilling, tapping, milling, turning, boring and grinding all kinds of materials and can harness multiple tools via their multi-tool changer. Ultimately, these characteristics can ensure the completion of a product or prototype in a single setup. Not many manufacturers can say the same.

Advantages of CNC Machining:
In addition to being completely automated, the advantages of precision CNC machining include:
- The ability to easily manufacture complex parts with high precision in a short amount of time.
- The ability to repeat the manufacturing process as many times as necessary.
- CNC machined parts can also be made from a variety of materials including bronze, steel, aluminum, gold, and silver. Polymers such as ABS, polycarbonate, and PTFE can also be used.
