    - There various advantages of using CNC machine tool over NC machine tool. They are as follows:

    1. As a software program is used to control machine tool in CNC system, it allows compensation for any changes in the dimensions of cutting tool.

    2. It provides facility of checking or proving the part program without actually running it on machine tool.

    3. It is possible to obtain information on machine utilization which is useful to management in CNC machine tool.

    4. CNC machine tool is more flexible than the NC machine tool.

    5. CNC machine can diagnose program and can detect the machine defects even before the part is produced.
