Safety Guide

CNC is an acronym for Computer Numeric Control and a CNC machine is essentially a device that is controlled using a computer or a Programmable Logic Controller. Common types of CNC machines include printers, lathes, milling centres and sewing machines.

We’ve create a guide outlining some key safety considerations to help anyone involved in building a CNC machine. You should never cut corners when it comes to safety, so be sure to take the time to look at our guide as it may help avoid unnecessary risks and accidents. If you’re looking to build your own CNC machine, why not have a look at our range of switches that will enhance your safety?

We’d also love to see your CNC projects in progress, share links to your projects with us over on the RS Components Facebook page or on Twitter @RSComponents.
