Today, traditional – or conventional lathes often are second choice to the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) option which has helped many companies to produce a wide spectrum of components on a large scale with greater precision and accuracy. The CNC innovation has proven that these machines have the ability to boost a company’s productivity and profitability.
