Manufacturing companies use a variety of tools, machines and equipment to produce goods, but none are as important as computer numerical control (CNC) machines. These machines allow manufacturing companies to perform essential processes like cutting, drilling and bending materials using a computer. There are several different types of CNC machines, some of which include mill, lathe, plasma cutters and electric discharge machining (EDM). However, they all support the use of computer-aided design (CAD) software as a method of control.

The Global CNC Machining Centers Market Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a professional study of the global CNC machining centers market. What is a CNC machining center exactly? A CNC machining center is a business-to-business (B2B) factory that performs CNC machining on half of other businesses. Standard-grade CNC machines can cost up to $60,000. Because they are so expensive, many businesses -- especially small and medium-sized businesses -- prefer to outsource their CNC machining needs to a center. Some CNC machining centers even allow businesses to use their CNC machines for a fee, giving them full control over their CNC machining needs.
This report segments the global CNC machining centers market by several criteria. On the basis of geographic region, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia and India. On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into vertical CNC machining centers and horizontal CNC machining centers. On the basis of end-user application, the CNC machining centers market is segmented into metal, plastics, wood, composites and others.
The Global Multiaxis CNC Machine Market Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a second comprehensive study of the global CNC machines, though it focuses specifically on CNC machines with multiple axes. Some CNC machines only have a single, but others have two or more. Mill CNC machines, for example, have an average of three to six axes, whereas lathe CNC machines have two or three axes. On the other hand, multi-spindle CNC machines only have a single axis, typically aligned horizontally or vertically in the middle of the machine. Multiaxis CNC machines are more expensive and complex. However, they are able to perform tasks that simply aren't possible with single-axis CNC machines.
Some of the key multiaxis CNC machine vendors profiled in this report include Bosch Rexroth Ag (Germany), Dmg Mori Co (Japan), Fagor Automation (Us), Haas Automation (Us), Hurco Companies (Us), Okuma Corporation (Japan), Wuhan Huazhong Numerical Control (China), Yamazaki Mazak Corporation (Japan) and others.
