Based on the need for more complex and sophisticated parts, the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) process is used by the manufacturing sector to control a machine or a tool using a programmable computer. Today, CNC machining is widespread allowing for a considerable jump in productivity around the world. Computer numerical control (CNC) is the automation of machine tools by means of computers executing pre-programmed sequences of machine control commands. This is in contrast to machines that are manually controlled by hand wheels or levers, or mechanically automated by cams alone.
In modern CNC systems, the design of a mechanical part and its manufacturing program is highly automated. The part’s mechanical dimensions are defined using computer-aided design (CAD) software, and then translated into manufacturing directives by computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software. The resulting directives are transformed (by “post processor” software) into the specific commands necessary for a particular machine to produce the component, and then are loaded into the CNC machine.
In before days achieving productivity up to the desired level was not possibilities due to lots of drawbacks like complication of shapes and sizes, lack of wastages and scraps due to unexpected mistakes and low quality levels and accuracy. By using CNC this all drawbacks can overcome and this was our small contribution to show the performance of CNC. In this project we are going to design and making of slotting tool with different materials (HIGH SPEED STEEL AND PLAIN CARBON STEEL) for slotting machine using CNC machine and compare its various parameters like material removal rate and tool life.
