Typically, CNC machines and robots work side by side in the production line, due to the power of the CNC machines when processing raw materials and the ability of the robots to lead and pack the produced goods. Therefore, there are many attempts and collaborations between CNC developers, mechanical engineers and robot manufacturers to create a simpler programming language that will carry better interaction between CNC machines and robots.
In addition, there is a lot of work put into the development of specific technological tools, each matching its own production line. Nowadays, there is a wide range of products that need to be made with a specific set of actions and production systems, because they are very unique or too delicate for the routine production line. Therefore, software engineers are trying to streamline the process and adapt machines in advance for different production lines.
The world of mechanics is growing day by day. Despite being grandiose, technologically advanced and very effective today, in this field it is always possible to aspire higher and I believe that the future is full of exciting surprises.
The machinery and machining industry has grown enormously in the past century - a production line whose main work force was based on laborers and has faced many obstacles such as slow production, the need in creating specific, complex forms and products and lack of technological precision. The field became fortunate with the arrival of engineers, scientists and computer professionals whose goal was to improve and innovate. Today, the mechanical industry has tools, devices and groundbreaking capabilities that eliminate the need for workers with special skills, other than those mentioned above, accelerate the production process with advanced equipment and unique working methods such as CNC, MIM, CAD, ect.
In recent years, progress has diminished somewhat, because if something works properly, why does it need fixing anyway? However, humans always strive to keep evolving. In the world of CNC, where technology has been used mainly for language-adapted machines, manufacturers are adopting a more integrated system that will allow communication between CNC machines and other machines in the production process.
