What are NC & CNC ?   Numerical control (NC) is a method of automatically operating a manufacturing machine based on a code letters, numbers and special characters. The numerical data required to produce a part is provided to a machine in the form of program, called part program or CNC (computer numerical control)

Text from page-4

What are NC & CNC ?   The program is translated into the appropriate electrical signals for input to motors that run the machine. A CNC machine is an numerical control machine with the added feature of an on board computer. The computer is referred to as the machine control unit (MCU)

HISTORY        In 1775, John Wilkinson- cannon boring machine (lathe). In 1881, Eli Whitney- milling machine. In 1947, Mr. John Parsons began experimenting for using 3-axis curvature data to control the machine tool motion for the production for aircraft components. In 1949, parsons- first NC machine. In 1951, MIT was involved in the project. In 1955, after refinements NC became available in industry Today, modern machinery are CNC milling machines and lathes.
