Unformatted text preview: blades. From there the application took off. Today CNC machines are readily available and can do amazingly complex designs with a simple computer integration with the CAD/CAM programs. Injection molding got its start at around the same time as CNC machining. In the 1800’s it was used to produce products such as combs and buttons, to evolving to sophisticated levels where it can now produce industrial, medical and aerospace products. Injection molding techniques have changed slightly since its humble beginnings in the 1800’s, but the process still remains simple and easy to replicate thousands of products. http://www.plasticmoulding.ca/history.htm http://www.cncinformation.com/cnc-info-cnc-information-cnc-general-info/cnc-machine-tool...
