Explore our CNC machining services
Computer numerical control (CNC) machining is an automated, subtractive manufacturing process that uses rotating cutting tools such as drills, end mills, and lathes, to remove material from solid workpieces. CNC machining is a cost-effective, precision process capable of creating parts quickly and in large quantities.

CNC mills are effective for geometric designs and rapid production requirements. Our CNC capabilities include both 3-axis and 5-axis mills.
CNC turning is a process in which an automated lathe shapes a rotating workpiece. Turning is useful for shaping rounded or cylindrical geometries.
CNC machining applications
From single parts to high-volume production runs, CNC machining has a spectrum of industrial applications. Learn more about the key applications of CNC machining here:
CNC machining uses a variety of cutting, drilling, and lathing tools to manufacture parts with complicated cuts and angles.
CNC machining is a safe, effective way of creating high quality metal parts with exceptional tolerance levels.
CNC machining is capable of creating a range of niche, durable metal and plastic products that alternative manufacturing processes cannot.
CNC machining is not just a process for metals: molded and 3D printed parts can also be machined.
CNC machining is particularly useful for medium to high-volume manufacturing runs, offering automated speed and cost benefits.
The CNC machining process is fast, autonomous, and useful for the production of prototype parts.
Why choose CNC machining?
CNC machining is a flexible, cost-effective manufacturing process with significant productivity benefits. Get in touch with us to find out if CNC machining is right for your project – and explore some of the key benefits and challenges of the process:
|Excellent mechanical properties||CNC machining can be employed to create parts with a range of mechanical properties.|
|Established technology||CNC machining doesn’t require the creation of expensive molds, meaning that production can begin sooner than other manufacturing processes.|
|Wide variety of materials||Machine parts in an array of metals and plastics to meet your project’s requirements.|
|Scalability||The CNC machining process enables manufacturers to scale from prototyping to volume production smoothly.|
|Speed||From rapid prototyping to high volume production, CNC machining is highly automated, and enables fast, efficient production.|
|Consistency and precision||With multiple machines working from the same design, the CNC process delivers high levels of consistency and precision across every project.|
|Unused material||The CNC machining process creates unused waste as it removes material from the workpiece.|
|Limited part geometry||CNC parts may be limited by the geometric capabilities of the machine in which they are being manufactured.|
|Higher initial cost||The CNC machining process involves higher initial costs than other manufacturing processes in order to meet design and tooling requirements.|
