Welcome to ThomasNet the premier industrial resource for CNC Machining. The manufacturers, distributors and service companies featured in the extensive ThomasNet.com directory offer a wide assortment of CNC machining equipment and services. Whether you are looking for DIY, multi-axis, Swiss-style screw machining, CNC lathing or prototype design, the following listing can connect you with the ideal source.
A CNC machine, standing for “computer numerical control” reads G-code to drive a machine tool, such as a drill bit, to cut away unwanted material from a work piece. Multi-axis machining moves the tool in all three dimensions. Software loaded into the machine uses parameters and code syntax similar to BASIC. CAD and CAM is software for more complex work. CAM and CAD are integrated to create the CNC program together, CAD renders the 3D image and CAM creates a path along mesh wireframe geometry for the CNC mill-drill to follow.
