Growth of CNC
Integration of CNC technolog y has grown significantly.
Last year’s survey reported 55 percent using CNC in the
shop with links to in-house design stations. This year,
more than 64 percent say they are using CNC and related design software to generate designs and production codes in the shop.
Nearly two thirds said the addition of computer-based manufacturing has “added significant manufacturing capacity.” Almost 85 percent said they are much
more or a little more profitable because of the technology. Less than one percent said they are less profitable
since adding CNC.
Shop rates, wages
Hourly shop rates ranged widely. The largest proportion
of shops in the survey ( 31 percent) reported shop rates
from $51-$75 per hour. That compares to 20 percent who
reported rates $76-$100 per hour, 18 percent who listed
rates of $26 -$50, and just 17 percent who posted rates of
$25 per hour or less.
Average employee compensation was a mixed bag.
