What Is CNC Drilling?

For numerous industries, precision and productivity are top priorities. With the introduction of computer numerical control (CNC) for metal drilling applications, companies across the board can achieve both when drilling holes or other shapes at a set diameter and length, providing their products or equipment with a universal set of components that ensure safety, performance and reliability for all users.

Learn more about what CNC drilling is, plus its uses and advantages, below.

How CNC Drilling Works

Several types of drilling machines are available for CNC, including these drill presses:

Upright

Bench

Radial

Our 22,000-square-foot facility features each, which include a few distinctive features and operations, but share the following components:

Spindle: Secures the chuck and drill bit, which can range from a spade to an ejector bit.

Table: Provides the workspace for the drilling machine, displaying the material receiving work.

Column: Supports the CNC drilling machine's elements.

Drill bit: Drills the necessary holes into a material.

Interface: Controls the drilling machine's operation through operator inputs.

When in use, the step-by-step process for CNC drilling includes:

The operator uploads and accesses the computer-aided design (CAD) or computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) file.

The operator installs the appropriate drill bit and secures the designated material on the table.

The operator starts the drilling process through the control panel or interface.

The spindle lowers, drilling the appropriate hole sizes and diameters.

After the drilling machine has completed its process, the operator reviews the material for any imperfections.
