With the accelerated pace of technological development in recent years, we feel that additive manufacturing will become the mainstream of CNC machining. However, it is more likely that more and more emerging manufacturing centers will combine multiple technologies into one machine, fully utilizing the advantages of reducing and additive manufacturing machines, and developing machines with stronger functions than the sum of the two. Early applications of such machines have already emerged.
In addition, through the Fourth Industrial Revolution, automation has made great progress, and higher automation systems will be developed that can perform self diagnosis and self optimization with little need for human intervention. In the future, products are expected to be manufactured according to consumers’ personal requirements, and CNC machines, with their outstanding flexibility, can make this vision a reality.
