Held every two years, the Seventh Chinese Numerical Control Competitions (CNCC) took place in China last week. The National NC Skills Competition highlight various levels of skill in NC programming and machining. Bringing together the best of engineers and students from all over China, its objective is to award craftsmanship in efforts to nurture China's future in manufacturing and help reach target manufacturing goals of 2025. The event was covered nationally in printed and televised media. Additionally, in attendance at the inauguration was the Chinese Labor Minister and other national and provincial government leaders. 

The competition itself is divided into three facets: CNC lathe and CNC milling on machining Centers (four-axis, five-axis), CNC machine tool installation and maintenance, overseeing five projects. While the competition evaluated theoretical knowledge, it mainly comprised of two practical operations. The first was a seven hour machine operation test where each contestant was required to machine his or her part correctly on a machine tool. The second part included a three hour examination of CAD design, CAM programming and NC-Code validation using PHIC-NCSIMUL.
