I imagine with time, Eastman will likely begin to utilize more CNC machinery. It takes a fair amount of technical knowledge and expense to outfit and implement a CNC machine in a factory setting but it is worth it in terms of consistency and repeatability.

There are also certain operations that when done repeatedly for years can lead to injury. I'd hate to be the guy that carves braces or necks all day !!! If the workers get to do lots of different task with regularity it does help but it is less efficient that way.
