Frequently Asked Questions
What is CNC machining?
CNC machining is a manufacturing process in which computers control the movement of supply, and machine tools, such as lathes, mills, and 3D printers. CNC stands for Computer Numeric Control.
How does CNC machining work?
In CNC machining, a computer program is used to control the movement of the machine tools, which follow precise instructions to cut and shape a workpiece. The workpiece project is typically made of metal or plastic and is held in place by a clamping system. At the same time, the machine tools move around it to perform various operations such as drilling, milling and turning.
What materials can be machined with CNC?
CNC machining operation can motor many materials, including metals (steel, aluminum, brass), plastics, and composites.
What is the process for creating a CNC machined part?
The process for creating a CNC machined part typically involves the following steps:
- Designing the part using computer-aided design (CAD) software.
- Creating a CNC program using computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software.
- Setting up the CNC machine and workpiece.
- Running the CNC program to machine the workpiece.
- Inspecting the finished part for quality and accuracy.
What are the advantages of CNC machining?
CNC machining offers several advantages over traditional machining methods/services, including:
- Increased accuracy and repeatability of parts
- Faster production times
- Ability to produce complex geometries
- Increased safety in our facility for operators
- Reduced reliance on skilled labor for CNC machining services
How much does CNC machining cost?
The cost of CNC can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the part's complexity, the material being machined, and the number of elements being produced. CNC services are generally more expensive than traditional machining and manufacturing methods, but they can offer cost savings in increased quality and accuracy.
How does CNC machining compare to traditional machining methods?
CNC machining is generally more accurate and efficient than traditional machining methods, such as manual milling or lathing. However, CNC machining can be more expensive due to the high initial cost of CNC equipment and manufacture.
What industries use CNC machining?
CNC machining is used in many industries; our client list includes aerospace, automotive, construction, defense, and medical. CNC machining is particularly well-suited for high-volume production runs, as it allows for rapid, accurate production/manufacturing of complex parts.
How accurate is CNC machining?
CNC machines are more accurate than traditional machining methods, with tolerances of +/-0.005 inches or better possible in some cases. However, the accuracy of CNC machining depends on some factors, including the quality equipment of the machine tools, the service operator's skill, and the machining parts' complexity.
