Computer Numerical Control (CNC) is an automated control of machine tools that is used by the means of computer. It is also identified as Numerical Control or NC. It can manage motion of the tools or work section. The CNC objects which are manufactured and generates a custom computer program written in an international standard language called G-code. The codes are also stored in & executed by the machine control unit (MCU). The CNC offers various advantages such as accuracy in manufacturing, short production time, larger manufacturing flexibility, better safety, reduction in human errors, contour machining and the boost production volume and others.
According to study, “Global Computerized Numeric Control Market Size study, by Type (Lathes, Mills, Routers, Grinders, Plasma Cutters, Drill Press, Others), by Application (Aerospace & Defence, Automobile, Electronics, Healthcare, Industrial, Others) and Regional Forecasts 2018-2025” some of the major companies that are currently working in the global computerized numeric control market are MONDRAGON Corporation, OKUMA Corporation, Soft Servo Systems, GSK CNC Equipment Co. Ltd., Hurco Companies Inc., Takisawa Machine Tool Co. Ltd., QMC Technologies, Techniks, Centroid, DMG Mori Co. Ltd., Delta Corp., Sieb & Meyer AG, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation, Heidenhain, Bosch Rexroth AG, Ace Micromatic, Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH, Hardinge, Amada Machine Tools Co. Ltd., Makino, Bosch Rexroth AG, COSMOS, FANUC Corporation, Fagor Automation, Wuhan Huazhong Numerical Control Co. Ltd., Minitech Machinery, AMS Micromedical LLC, Sandvik Coromant, Amera Seiki, Siemens AG, JTEKT Corporation, Shop Sabre, Haas Automation, Sandvik AB, Shenyang Machine Tool Co. Ltd. (SMTCL), Dalian Machine Tool Group (DMTG) Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Protomatic Inc., JTEKT Corporation, Metal craft.
Based on the product type, global computerized numeric control is segmented into machine tool type and non-machine tool type. Based on components, market is segmented into servo motors, servo drivers and controllers. Based on the machine tool type, market is segmented into mills machine, shaping machine, laser machines, grinder machines, lathes machines, routers machines and others (electric discharge machining, drill press, welding & winding machines and plasma cutters etc.). Based on industry verticals market is segmented into healthcare, automobile, industrial machinery, embroidery, electronics, aerospace & defense and others (metal & mining, transportation and consumer goods).
The global computerized numeric control is driven by the reduction in overall process cost, followed by improvised precision & quality, growing purchasing power of individuals, growing demand for automated manufacturing in industrial sector, easy availability of labor, enhanced capabilities of manufacturers, growing demand for production efficiency and time effectiveness. Apart from the benefits, some of the major restraints hampering include lack of skilled personnel, government & environmental regulations and the high installation & maintenance cost. In addition, increase in application areas adding to the major opportunity for the CNC market development.
Globally, the Western Europe holds the largest share of the market. In future, it is estimated that the global computerized numeric control market to be bright owing to the increase in use of improvised techniques such as Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer Aided Design (CAD).
