FAQs

1. What is CNC turning?

CNC stands for computer numeric control. CNC turning is similar to manual lathe work, except the process works with an automated program. Read more…

2. What is CNC milling?

Machine shop milling is machining with rotary cutting tools. The workpiece is stationary, and the cutting tool moves over it Read more…

3. What is Wire EDM?

Wire EDM is electrical discharge machining. Instead of a standard cutting tool, it uses a thin piece of electrically charged wire with a dielectric fluid. Read more…

4. What is 3 axis machining?

A typical 3 axis vertical CNC milling machine has x, y, and z, axes. Here is how they work Read more…

5. What is 4 axis machining?

A standard CNC Mill only has X, Y and Z axes. The 4th axis allows the cutting tool to move along the rotating workpiece. Read more…

6. What is 5 axis machining?

With a 5 axis machining center, the cutting tool may move in 3 different ways. For example, it can move up and down, forward, and to the sides. Read more…

7. What is stainless steel machining?

Stainless steel comes from an alloy of steel with chromium and sometimes another element. This creates high corrosion resistance. Read more…

8. What is aluminum machining?

Machining includes milling, lathe work, boring, and other ways to shape or cut materials. Aluminum machining works with aluminum alloys Read more…

9. What is prototype machining?

Prototype machining creates a working model of a new or updated part or product. It is an exact replica for the customer to inspect, test, and perform Read more…

10. What is precision machining?

Precision machining removes material from pieces while maintaining close tolerances for the finish. The process uses computer programs Read more…

11. What is multi axis machining?

A typical CNC machining process utilizes up to three axes for the work. Multi axis machining adds a fourth or even fifth axis to the process. Read more…
