Solved Servo Applications

CNC Machine Tools


A machine tool is a device capable of shaping or machining metal or other rigid materials through an automated process known as Computer Numerical Control (CNC). Milling, cutting, drilling, as well as other CNC machines, are preprogrammed to account for pattern designs, material types, tools used, speed of operation, etc. The precise sequences and/or repeated steps can produce much more complex pieces with many finished pieces being exact duplicates of one another.
