Those who try to do it by hand, still to this day, still get it right. How so? Working in a cnc machines pittsburgh workshop still allows them to turn old tools or machines by hand. This is so because they have brought a number of skills that they have accumulated over the years to their workshop benches. But to be fair, the men who had been turning tools long before the CNC turning machine was even an idea have more than likely, long since retired.
Those that had been practicing by the time the first CNC machines arrived in their workshops would have had to undergo further training. That would have been expected. And it is pretty much like it has always been for so many different trades, industries and professions, not so? After all, no matter what your skills or expertise, you’ll inevitably have to undergo computer hardware and software training.
Such is life these days. But no complaints about that, because just look at how many more tasks you are able to accomplish within a single working day. So many things that would have taken a week, if not, longer to do, now only takes a day to finish off. And that’s the thing about a CNC machine. It can fabricate a single tool or part within a matter of hours, if not, in less time. But so quick and easy it is not.
Don’t forget that whatever tool or piece of machinery needs to be prepared for the industrial client still needs to achieve its exactness. The result must be exactly as specified by the client. Work of integrity is often completed by combining a mixture of the two. Handmade and computer based work.
