Machine Manufacturing Technology Machine manufacturing has evolved quickly and substantially in the last few decades. Since the 1950s, computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines have helped the industry achieve greater consistency and standardization. Now, a half-century later, machine operators use computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software to control, manipulate and manage precision tool production. Machine manufacturing and tool dies have become increasingly valuable, especially in the production of high-precision tools for high-tech manufacturing and large industrial construction. With such dramatic advancements over time, it pays to have a solid foundation in the art and mathematical science of machine manufacturing.
