What is CNC Machining?
CNC Machining is a subtractive manufacturing process where your computer modeled parts (or parts we can model for you) are machined directly from a solid block of material. Using the latest in CAM (Computer-Aided Machining) programs, we generate efficient tool paths for our machines that allow us to make your parts in a matter of hours to just a few days, depending on complexity.
In addition to CNC milling services, we also offer CNC turning services.
Similarly to CNC machining, CNC turning refers to the automated machining process of shaping material, such as metal, wood or plastic, using a computer numeric control (CNC) machine. In contrast to traditional turning utilizing a lathe, which usually requires continuous operator attention, CNC turning allows for multiple cutting actions to be completed under computer control.
During the CNC turning process, a piece of material (wood, metal or plastic) is rotated and a cutting tool is moved parallel to the axis of rotation to produce precise diameters and depths. CNC turning can be performed on the outside of the workpiece or the inside (also known as boring) to produce tubular components to various geometries.
