Metal Machining

Metal machining is a manufacturing process that involves shaping metal workpieces into desired shapes and dimensions through the removal of material. This process is carried out with lathes, milling, drilling, and grinding equipment. Metal machining projects are used in various industries, including automotive, aerospace, electronics, and machinery manufacturing just to name a few.

Here’s an overview of some of our metal machining processes:

Turning: Turning is a machining process used to create cylindrical parts by rotating a workpiece against a cutting tool. This process is often performed on a lathe machine, where the workpiece is clamped and rotated while a single-point cutting tool removes material to achieve the desired diameter and surface finish.

Milling: Milling involves using rotary cutters to remove material from a workpiece to create complex shapes and features. Milling machines can perform a variety of operations, including face milling, end milling, slotting, and profiling. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machines are widely used for precision machining tasks.

Drilling: Drilling is a machining process used to create holes in metal workpieces. A rotating drill bit applies axial force to the workpiece, removing material and creating a hole with the desired diameter and depth. Drilling machines come in various types, including bench drills, radial drills, and CNC drilling machines.

Grinding: Grinding is a precision machining process used to achieve tight tolerances and smooth surface finishes on metal parts. It involves using abrasive grains to remove material from the workpiece’s surface, either by rotating the workpiece against a grinding wheel or by using a rotating grinding wheel to remove material from a stationary workpiece.

Machining Centers: Machining centers combine multiple machining operations into a single machine, allowing for increased productivity and versatility. These machines often feature CNC control systems and can perform milling, drilling, tapping, and other machining operations in one setup.

Tapping: is a machining operation used to create internal threads in a hole, allowing it to accept screws, bolts, or other threaded fasteners. This process is commonly employed in metalworking, but it can also be used with plastics and other materials.

Metal machining requires careful planning, tool selection, and machining parameters to achieve the desired results while maintaining quality and efficiency. Additionally, advancements in technology, such as CNC machining and computer-aided design (CAD) software, have greatly enhanced the precision, accuracy, and productivity of metal machining processes.

TYPES OF ORDERS WE CAN HANDLE:

Prototype Orders:

Prototype orders involve the production of a small batch of parts for testing, validation, or product development purposes. These orders are typically smaller in quantity and may involve iterative revisions to the design.

Low-Volume Orders:

Low-volume orders involve the production of a limited quantity of parts, often ranging from a few dozen to a few hundred units. These orders are suitable for small-scale production runs or specialized applications.

Medium-Volume Orders:

Medium-volume orders involve the production of a moderate quantity of parts, typically ranging from several hundred to a few thousand units. These orders are suitable for larger production runs or ongoing manufacturing needs.

High-Volume Orders:

High-volume orders involve the production of a large quantity of parts, often tens of thousands or more units. These orders are suitable for mass production and require efficient machining processes and production planning.

Custom Orders:

Custom orders involve the production of parts that are tailored to the specific requirements of the customer. These orders may require specialized machining processes, unique materials, or complex geometries.

Repeat Orders:

Repeat orders involve the production of parts that are ordered regularly or on a recurring basis. These orders may involve setting up long-term supply agreements or contracts with the customer.

Rush Orders:

Rush orders involve expedited production and delivery of parts to meet tight deadlines or urgent customer requirements. These orders often require prioritization of production and may incur additional costs for expedited services.

Complex Orders:

Complex orders involve the production of parts with intricate geometries, tight tolerances, or challenging materials. These orders may require specialized machining equipment, advanced programming, or manual intervention to ensure quality and accuracy.

Standard Orders:

Standard orders involve the production of parts that meet industry-standard specifications or requirements. These orders may be relatively straightforward and routine, requiring standard machining processes and materials.

Specialty Orders:

Specialty orders involve the production of parts for niche markets or specialized applications. These orders may require unique materials, finishes, or machining techniques to meet the specific needs of the customer.
