CNC – Computer Numerical Control


CNC (Computer Numerical Control)

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control and has been around since the early 1970’s. Prior to this, it was called NC, for Numerical Control.

CNC mills can perform the functions of drilling and milling. The CNC Mills at PDC are controlled by sophisticated network of computers. The 3D mold file is converted into surfcam file which plots the 3D mold on an x, y, and z graph. Giving cooridinates to the required cuts. These coordinates control the CNC Mills according to the axes that they possess. Axes are labeled as x and y for horizontal movement, and z for vertical movement.

At GAP we use all modern techniques to provide high quality products to our clients within time.

We have in house CNC Machines and also outsource our machining processes to associate vendors. We ensure that our associates employ cutting-edge machining processes run as per the highest quality standards. Our quality control team also runs stringent quality checks on inward materials & machined components sourced from our vendors.

The various machining processes employed in the manufacturing process are:

  • Vertical Milling
  • Horizontal Milling
  • Turning
  • Drilling
  • Other related Machining Activities

At GAP, we prefer to supply our castings in a fully machined, impregnated, surface coated and packed condition, leaving with us the responsibility for the supply of quality parts.
