If you’re in the manufacturing business or machining business, odds are you’re relying more and more computer-numerical control (CNC) machining, which includes operations once operated by engineers such a center lathe tool, socket sets, shaping machines and vertical millers.

In some cases, CNC machining has replaced operator-controlled equipment entirely. There are many benefits of turning to CNC machining for machining needs including speed, accuracy and exact production. Whether you’re producing large quantities of a product or small batches, CNC machining, used in conjunction with tools like machinist blocks (or 1-2-3 blocks) is making things easier.

The industries using CDC machining are growing by the day and include:

  • Automotive
  • Construction
  • Military
  • Dental
  • Transportation
  • Agriculture

One of the greatest benefits of CNC machining is that one skilled operator can operate several machines whereas in the pas
