“Over the years, as the manufacturing industry and the various machining processes have improved, we’ve slowly come to the point where we have access to the incredible CNC machined parts that many in the industry use today. You could break the improvements we’ve seen through the use of these machines into three broad categories, each involving many good reasons why we are so much better off.
First thing that we could consider is how many more spare parts and components are available in warehouses and on shelves now that computers have taken over the machining process and increased the production so vastly. If you look at how fast these things are being put out now days, it is easy to see that there will always be enough pieces to go around so manufactures can keep their goods coming off the assembly line. Just imagine that you are a store keeper and everyone wants the trendiest new electronic out there, but you can sell them like you want because the manufacturer doesn’t have enough parts to make enough for you to sell.
If you ever go to the store feeling that you just purchased a product or part that was overpriced, you may want to imagine a world without computerized machining. If you were to pit a room filled with of computerized machines against a room full of human operated machines, the room with all the computerized machines in it would end up putting out several times the products as the room full of human operated machines by the end of the work day. When you are able to spend a good bit less money and produce a whole lot more products, you will end up making more money, which also allows you to charge the end consumer less for your product.
The third, and easily the most important, benefit of CNC machined parts is that they are manufactured with such high precision. This precision is important because it could actually go on to stop someone’s accidental death. If a commercial jet was built using poorly manufactured parts, the aircraft could end up malfunctioning and crashing down to the earth, costing many people their lives.
By putting these three elements into perspective, pretty much anyone should be able to recognize why these parts are such a big deal. You may want to be thankful for them the next time you decide to travel overseas or drive your automobile on the interstate. “
