In the manufacturing industry, automation is a term that often refers to high production processes, where manufacturing facilities create thousands upon thousands of the same part every day. But with ever-changing technology comes changing definitions, and today, many small job CNC machine shops are able to provide the same level of precision that large-name manufacturers can.
Before CNC automation technology trickled down to low volume manufacturing, fabrication had to be done by hand. With computers and technology, automation has allowed low volume manufacturing to improve quality and accuracy while reducing complexity and operating costs. But better quality and savings are far from the only advantage that CNC automation affords. Take a look at some of its other benefits below:
