Automation in CNC machining is an area that continues to grow and evolve — due in part to technology advances, but even more so, due to the increasing recognition by shop owners of the potential benefits that automation can offer. CNC machining automation, robotics and automated pallet systems for CNC machining can combine to offer a host of improvements in efficiency, capacity, ROI and overall bottom line, all with a minimum of additional effort and manpower required. In fact, that’s the point — automation and robotics give shop owners, entrepreneurs and engineers the opportunity to do much, much more with the same amount of (or even less) work and overall investment.
The partnership between manufacturing and the medical device and prosthetics industries has a long, rich and productive history. The visions of medical revolutionaries who have researched and developed ways to heal the human body, both inside and out, are only as practical as their ability to bring them to fruition. This is where manufacturing’s ingenuity, dependability and creativity come into play, shepherding previously unheard of medical advances through the final step of becoming a reality.
Plastic CNC machining is an example of a subtractive manufacturing process. When you place your order with RevPart, we begin with a solid piece of plastic, load it into the machine, and begin cutting. The machine removes plastic layer by layer, following the guidelines in your CAD file, and eventually reveals a perfectly formed product.
