CNC MACHINING

CNC machining is fast for manufacturing prototypes and production quantity runs. CNC machines are programmable, and they can run autonomously, producing parts from a wide variety of materials quickly and efficiently. We have a variety of state of the art CNC machines to ensure we meet your needs for quality components..

A CNC lathe uses modern tooling and computer programming to create parts quickly and accurately. Parts produced on a CNC lathe are identical, making them ideal for applications that require precision. A CNC lathe has the same capabilities as a manual lathe, but it runs autonomously. We can create parts up to 11 feet long in large or small runs.

  • Largest Part We Can Turn: 11' (Feet)
  • Small to Large Runs
  • Create Identical Parts

Our CNC gantry routers can create complex 2D and 3D parts and prototypes. The multi-axis machine’s bits spin at very high speed, following the specs from the computer program that controls the machine’s operation. We can create consistent parts with dimensions up to up to 5’ by 10’.

  • Largest Part We Can Run: 5' x 10'
  • Full 2D & 3D Machining Capabilities
  • Multi-Axis Machining Which Produces Consistent Work on Large Plates

A CNC surface grinder creates parts with a fine surface finish. Our CNC grinders are semi-automated to provide more precise control for precision work such as sharpening blades or deburring cut pieces, with a tolerance of +/- .0002 / 6RMA finish. Our multivariable speed CNC surface grinders can handle a surface up to 12” by 24”.

  • Tolerance: +/- .0002 / 6RMA Finish
  • Largest Surface: 12” x 24”
  • Multivariable Speed Grinding

We have a highly skilled team of machinists dedicated to rapid prototyping. We use the full range of our CNC & EDM equipment to create exactly the part specified in your design. We offer fast turnaround and rapid changes as your design evolves. We can produce multiple identical prototypes with a turn around time of just a few hours.

  • Able to Produce Identical Prototypes from Graphic file
  • Fastest Turn Around Time: Hours (Dependent On Complexity of Part)
  • Multi-Machine Prototyping

Cutting surfaces on dies suffer from wear after a period of use, resulting in unacceptable finish or out of tolerance parts. Since dies are made from extremely hard materials to enable them to withstand the rigors of cutting other hard materials, they are difficult or impossible to repair in most standard machining facilities. We have the skills and equipment to offer complete die repair for all your tooling.

  • Tolerance:
    • Wire EDM: .0002"
    • CNC Machining: .0005"
  • Repair or Reshape & Flexible Sizes / Shapes
  • Fast Turnaround

These machines use your computer generated designs and blueprints to create parts quickly and accurately. Our skilled team and the CNC programming controls speed, feed rate and pressure to control the finished product and ensure it meets your specifications exactly. We work with a wide variety of materials from very soft to very hard, turning out perfect parts every time.

  • Tolerance:
    • Wire EDM: .0002"
    • CNC Machining: .0005"
  • Wide Range of Materials
  • Precisely Reproduce CAD Files

CNC MACHINING APPLICATIONS

EDM can be used in a number of different applications, but it is especially useful for creating prototypes, dies, and molds because it can cut very intricate pieces. It can also cut through hard metals like kovar, titanium, Inconel, carbide, and hardened tool steel. This is particularly useful in the medical and aerospace industries, although EDM machining is also used in the automotive, electronics, retail and defense industries. It may also be used for fairly simple applications like removing drills and broken items from cavities.

Surface finish achievable with EDM

Surface finish is often called out on part prints. Sometimes it’s because it influences appearance, more often because it affects how surfaces slide over one another. Bearing surfaces and those used for sealing are examples of where finish is important. An EDM surface finish is different to that produced by conventional machining. Cutting processes produce…

Let EDM be your secret weapon

Thin walls, tight internal radii, tapers, deep blind pockets in hard materials. Sometimes it seems designers are just trying to find the limits of what manufacturing can do. It’s as if they’re hoping manufacturing will say, “Can’t be done.” The thing is, if manufacturing only has access to conventional machining processes they’re probably right. Some…

How accurate is wire EDM?

It’s only natural that designers and toolmakers should ask about the precision of EDM. Knowing the capabilities of the process informs design decisions and influences costs. Whether the parts being made are surgical instruments, extrusion dies, or aerospace components, it’s important to know what tolerances are achievable. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. While accuracies of…

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…
