CloudNC specializes in precisionf manufacturing and machining. They are known for their innovative approach to computer numerical control (CNC) machining, a process used to control machine tools through computer programs. They want to deliver manufacturing autonomy and bring about the next industrial revolution.
Complex products require complex parts. The smaller the part, the more challenging to manufacture. Precision parts are a foundation of modern life, essential to everything from laptops to life-support machines, from sofas to satellites. Every component is a unique combination of processes, tools, geometries and materials. Due to this manufacturing specific parts is incredibly time intensive, requires very particular skills, and rarely exists outside of batch production.
CloudNC allows users to input design specifications into a cloud-based platform, which then generates machine-specific instructions. The AI optimizes tool paths and parameters for precision, improving efficiency, accuracy, and reducing the need for manual programming.
