Profiling in the context of a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine refers to the process of cutting or shaping a workpiece along a predetermined path or contour. It involves using the CNC machine's capabilities to precisely follow a specified shape, pattern, or design on the material being worked on. Profiling is a fundamental operation in CNC machining and is used to create intricate and precise geometries in various materials, such as metals, plastics, wood, and more.
When it comes to manufacturing profiles, machining is an essential process that plays a crucial role in achieving precision and accuracy. Profile machining is the process of removing unwanted material from a workpiece to obtain the desired shape and size.
