The very design of precision CNC machines lends itself to modern manufacturing. Today is an age of “custom” production. In the past, much of manufacturing was driven by high production, with little emphasis on customizing the end product. In contrast, much of today’s production is geared toward a higher level of customization.
This manufacturing philosophy requires a high degree of flexibility. Precision CNC equipment is designed for higher repeatable precision, shorter setups, shorter lead times, lower inventories, and less elaborate fixturing. This type of equipment is used in the manufacturing of components for almost all modern markets. It is also well suited for the adaptation of automation for higher-level production.
