CNC Milling – What Does This Mean to Manufacturers?

The Acronym CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control and essentially involves the use of computers to control machines. CNC Milling refers to the concept of sending computerized signals to parts to the machine to carry out different functions.

For This milling concept to be successful, designs are specified using CAD tools and these designs are then translated into instructions on how the drill needs to move to create the required shape.

The purpose of this article is to provide a general overview of CNC Milling and also highlight some applications of this concept in today’s world.

 

Applications of CNC Milling

CNC Milling is present in most industries nowadays and this article aims to highlight some of these industries and its purpose in them.

 

Automobile Industry:

From the making of gear boxes to clutch discs and even body parts, the role of CNC milling in the production of cars is practically visible in various stages. Automobile manufacturers engage this milling technology in most processes that involve metal cutting. This is made possible by the level of accuracy that comes with using this technology.

In the creation of identical motor parts for instance, CNC Milling machines are programmed to cut away irrelevant parts and once the prototypes are generated, the designs can be computerized and then sent to the machines which will be largely involved in the mass production process.

It is fair to say that there is no car in modern times that has not benefited from this technology and this will continue to be the case going forward especially as our vehicle designs become more creative and sophisticated.

 

Manufacturing Industry:

Manufacturers actively apply CNC Milling technology in either creating their prototypes or mass producing the prototypes. This technology has vastly improved processes within the manufacturing industry as nowadays designs can easily be created on computers and sent out as instructions to the machine for cutting. Mass production of guns, jewelries and even printed circuit boards have largely been made possible by CNC Milling technology. This has really improved production speed over the years and is likely to continue doing so as the technology becomes even more advanced.

Metal Cutting Industry:

It is hard to imagine the world’s metal cutting industry without CNC milling. This Milling technology forms an integral part in metal cutting today and has paved the way for the production of a vast range of finished inventions which have essentially made life easier for us. This Milling technology is greatly used in cutting and fabricating metal parts either from solid state, from pre machined forms or even from castings and forgings. I’ve personally tried one CNC milling service and that was Ezis Craft, it’s a fairly new enterprise, but got the job done and I’m happy with them.

In whichever major industry you find yourself, you are likely to find one CNC Milling operation or another. From the production of cars to cutting of guns, it is hard to imagine an effective world without the presence of the concept of CNC Milling today. For a concept that’s widely accepted like this, it can only continue to advance in all ramifications rather than collapse.

Top 5 Ideas For Your Cloud Space

cloud space

 

There seems to be no end to cloud services popping out everywhere. Google Drive, Microsoft’s SkyDrive, Dropbox, just Box and probably many others. I now have exactly 70GB of pure cloud goodness:  8GB of Dropbox space, 10GB on Google Drive, 50GB on Box, and 7GB on Microsoft’s SkyDrive. But for what? For all people who are wondering what to do with all those space here are the top five ideas you can do.

 

1. Your personal media storage

 

It’s obvious really, what’s your songs doing in your own hardisk now? It’s time to move them all to your cloud space. For this you can either:

 

  • Register with Google Play Music for a huge space of 20,000 songs.
  • Specialize one of your cloud services ONLY for those family photos, that way, you won’t be confused searching them out. I recommend Dropbox for this, since they offer a quick gallery view in case your family asks for them.

2. File Backups

Got some documents you don’t want to lose? Or secret photos from a trip to Vegas? Store them in a cloud service. I recommend Dropbox, again, due to its encryption feature. Some neat ideas to do is storing those hard, important passwords you often forget. Be sure to encrypt them and change its name though, nothing cracks hackers more than a text file named “passwords.txt”

3. File Sharing

Got some files you want to share with your friends or colleagues? Box is the way to go since, it has the easiest controls and file sharing features. That way when your friend/colleague first register for it, they won’t get confused navigating the cloud jungle. For business or enterprise level file sharing, you can make a file or entire folders private, allowing only people you trust to be able to gain access to them.

4. Game Saves

People rarely bring thumb drives for game saves anyways. I know I don’t. How many times has it occurred to you? When you wish you can play that 10MB game in your school’s computer or in the office computer without needing to start a new game? Reserve another cloud space just for this, or at least put them in its own folder. They deserve it. Go with sync-able services so that when you use another computer, you can just open your cloud drive, sync and play away!

5. Portable Apps

Forget to bring that important USB containing all your oh so important apps? You’ll be glad if you store another batch of them in your cloud drive. That way, when you want to use them, you can just download the whole folder to the computer and use them right away!
So, that’s about it for my Ideas, what about yours? What do you do with all those cloud space? Comment down below! For the previous high five, visit Chrome and Top 5 Features Hidden From You

Unsubscribe Annoying Emails Before It’s Too Late

If you are anything like me, which I am pretty sure of,  right now you probably have around 1000 or more junk emails sitting in your inbox. If you are still sitting in the triple digits then good, you can still stop them before it’s too late.

Why You Got Them In The First Place

1. Facebook

 facebook
Facebook is one of the worst plague in my Hotmail account right now and accounts for about 2500+ e-mails that I have there. My inbox is now sitting in the 4 digits, all because of Facebook’s fault. (okay some of it is mine)

 

 

2. Daily Deals

GrouponLivingSocial
Some daily deals services like Groupon or Living Social might contribute to your massive inbox if you have ever registered for them. Stopping them is surprisingly hard for since I got 4 of those sites and unsubscribing is, well, exhausting. Add that to my laziness and they are still untouched to this day.

3. Registering In Random Sites

Signing up your warranties apparently makes you “eligible” to their newsletters and promotions. They are not the worst kinds since they rarely bring updates. Some forums also notify you by e-mail for every reply and private messages. Right now they occupy around 10% of my inbox but since I like being notified about replies (so that I can reply back), I decided to let them be for now.

4. Email Subscription

 Emails
If you read other blogs and like what you see, you subscribe to them. Unfortunately what brings great happiness to the author brings you an e-mail everyday. One or two blogs/website will not disturb you but if you have around 10-15 blogs subscribed like me, you can get around 15 e-mails each day. After a two weeks vacation you would have gathered around 200 emails that you know you will never read.

 

 

 

How To Stop Them Before It’s Too Late

1. Facebook

 facebook2
You see, Facebook always delivers useless e-mails like, “Person A commented in your photo” or “Person B tags you in his photo”. Worse, they won’t stop there because when you are tagged, all comments regarding the photo will create another e-mail to your inbox, notifying you of the reply. You should know yourself what the comments will be like: ‘useless’.
Fortunately there is a setting in your account settings page labeled “Notifications”, all you need to is uncheck them all and you are done. Don’t know why I never bother to check them out.

2. Daily Deals

 unsubscribedeals
Unsubscribedeals.com offers you an easy way to unsubscribe all your daily deals e-mails. All you need to is press the big ass “Connect with your Gmail Account” button and sign in with your google account. Don’t worry it will only bring you ONE e-mail notifying that you applied there and stuff.

3. Registering in Random Sites

I hope you still remember your account sign-in ID and passwords for them. I don’t, that’s why I’m stuck with these e-mails from them. If you remember your account, good, you can unsubscribe them directly by visiting each site one by one and see where the “unsubscribe” link is placed. Usually there is already an “unsubscribe” link provided in the bottom of those e-mails.

4. Email Subscription

walletfull
The steps you take will be the same as the steps you take ditching those membership cards in your wallet. Choose some of the blogs you don’t read anymore and unsubscribe to them. Do reserve a spot for mine though. (hint!hint!)
