History of CNC's

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) first hit the scene in the late 1960s. The primary reason for designing such a device was eliminating the large cost involved in replacing the complicated relay based machine control systems for major U.S. car manufacturers.

A Programmable Logic Controller, PLC or Programmable Controller is a digital computer used for automation of electromechanical processes, such as control of machinery on factory assembly lines, amusement rides, or light fixtures.
