CNC or Computer Numerically Controlled is a numerical control-based machine developed in 1952. Initially, CNC machines required high costs with a large volume of control units. In 1973, the price of CNC machines was still fantastic. So there are still very few companies that have the courage to pioneer investment in this technology.
CNC machining has grown rapidly since 1975. The development of advanced microprocessors drove this development, therefore the volume of the controller unit became more compact.
PT Kemas Indah Maju (KEMAS), an Indonesian cosmetic packaging manufacturer, has also been using this high-tech CNC machine for a long time. KEMAS brought German technology CNC machines to our workshop in order to obtain the high precision that we want to produce.
What is a CNC Machine?
A CNC machine is a computer-controlled machine using a numerical language according to ISO standards. The working principle of CNC technology is to synchronize between mechanics and computers, compared to similar machine tools, CNC machine tools themselves are more flexible, precise, more precise and ideal for mass production applications.
This CNC machine tool, can support production with a high level of complexity and can reduce the operator’s work when the machine is operating at KEMAS. So that efficiency and quality can be maintained simultaneously and continuously.
NC or Numerical Control is a format like an automation program. As a mechanical action on machinery and other equipment. Controlled by a program containing data in the form of a numeric code. Where alphanumerical data displays a job instruction in the operation of the machine itself.
Numerical Control controls the machine based on digital information. Usually, NC is useful for small to medium-scale production by varying production on items, whose dimensions, shapes, and process routes to workmanship vary.
In the era of the industrial revolution 4.0, the use of CNC machines is almost applied in various fields of the business industry, including PT Kemas Indah Maju one of the leading manufacturers in Indonesia which provide high precision in its cosmetic packaging products. (KIM-06).
