Computer Numerical Control(CNC) machining definition is that it is a subtractive manufacturing process which typically employs computerized controls and machine tools to remove layers of material from a stock piece—known as the blank or workpiece—and produces a custom-designed part. This process is suitable for a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, wood, glass, foam, and composites, and finds application in a variety of industries, such as large CNC machining and CNC machining aerospace parts. When speaking in terms of the machine itself, the CNC machine definition is that it represents the actual programmable machine that is capable of autonomously performing the operations of CNC machining. Note the contrast between the process versus the machine.
CNC Cutting Machines are in use in many industries and have many applications. They are commonly used in fabrication and welding shops, automotive repair and restoration, industrial construction, salvage and scrapping operation.
Due to the high speed and precision cuts, combined with low cost of operation, CNC Plasma and Flame Cutting Machines sees a widespread usage from large scale industrial application to small workshops, who used it to create decorative metalwork, commercial & residential signage, wall art, address signage, and garden art. Industrial application, for example, huge metal and shape cutting, especially in ship building and construction industry, and the machines are also used for production cutting.
Modern CNC machine are flexible and safe, with faster operation. With many options and designs to choose from to suit one needs and application.
Computer-Aided Design & Computer-Aided Manufacturing ( CAD and CAM), If you are involved with CNC machines, you are probably involved with CNC programming and CAD/CAM systems. Time-to-market is critical with today's fierce competition. Companies need to ensure that their design and manufacturing teams are working closely with each other, as well as with their customers.
CAD/CAM software is used to design and manufacture prototypes, finished products and production runs.
CAD/CAM applications are used to both design a product and programme manufacturing processes, specifically, CNC machining. CAM software uses the models and assemblies created in CAD software to generate toolpaths that drive machine tools to turn designs into physical parts. CAD/CAM software is used to design and manufacture prototypes, finished parts and production runs.
An integrated CAD/CAM environment is a critical factor in helping to ensure the users are able to benefit from solids-based, fully associative CNC machining, whether it's with native solid models or neutral file formats like IGES, STEP, etc.
Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) is a significant component of the construction supply chain. MEP design is critical for design decision-making, accurate documentation, performance and cost-estimating, construction planning, managing and operating the resulting facility. Our mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers are some of the most experienced and respected experts in the industry. Our portfolio includes the redesign of existing systems for building renovations, retrofitting facilities to meet updated codes or to support new uses, and the design of new building systems.
Our MEP studio holds many years of project experience that delivers accuracy and competency in all areas of design and production level outputs Elim Associates has responded to current market conditions by providing highly-customized construction / production drawings for our MEP clients. Staffing constraints combined with a lack of qualified resources highlight this value for our clients. We support MEP practice areas such as healthcare, high rise, multifamily residential, mixed use, retail, hospitality, corporate, workspace, education, institutional and industrial. We have become a trusted partner to our clients by providing them with the highest quality of design, efficiency, schedule relief and cost savings.
