NC or CNC controlled machines/equipment


Explanation:
NC means numerically controlled, and CNC means computer numerically controlled. Here is a suggestion for your sentence:

For NC or CNC controlled machines or equipment, include the software costs in this field.

Even though it's redundant, it's quite common to use terms like CNC controlled machine or a machine with CNC controls.
If you do a google search on CNC controls or CNC controlled machines, you will find scores of hits. You will find for example, a CNC grinder, and also a CNC-controlled grinder. Even Siemens designates their products that way, for example SINUMERIK 840C
CNC Control.

HTH!

NC-control, CNC-control


Explanation:
Please check the Proz.com glossary for a similar question at
http://www.proz.com/h.php3?bs=1&id=33193

I suggest:
"If the machine happens to be NC- or CNC-controlled, please consider the software expenses in this field."

Purists may not like the above since NC and CNC already have "controlled" in them, but nevertheless it is widely used incorrectly, and - depending on the audience and context - CNC-controlled may be acceptable. Otherwise, you may want to say:
"If the machine is an NC- or CNC-machine, please consider the expenses in this field."

Cheerio,
Dierk
