What is a cnc router used for?

Cnc routing is a great method of cutting out shapes from materials. It can replace a table saw and band saw type cuts. The router cutter if used correctly can give a superb edge finish requiring very little sanding etc. Complex cutout shapes with curves and sections pocketed out are a breeze. It is good for turning cad drawings into real parts very quickly.

Repeating the same process time after time is where a cnc router excels. No need to accurately measure and mark out each part for hand cutting. Drill 200 holes in a sheet - no problem! and all in exactly the right place which is virtually impossible by hand.

A cnc router is used by many companies who manufacture the every day products we have in our homes. Kitchens, wardrobes, tables, signs, windows and doors etc will all have been processed using a cnc router.

CNC stands for 'computer numerical control' which in laymans terms means controlled by a computer.
