What is CNC Machining?
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining is ubiquitous in the modern manufacturing industry. The process uses a computer program to control cutting tools to manufactures high-precision products that might be difficult to produce manually. Today, different types of CNC machines with functions like milling, turning, and combined milling and turning are crucial in the manufacturing of hardware products. Manufacturers also use CNC machines with plasma cutter, laser cutter and EDM (Electric Discharge Machining) to manufacture products.
- Suitable for moderate volume demands and varying designs
- Compatible with numerous materials- metals, plastics, wood, glass, etc
- High-precision complex parts for aerospace, transportation, medical, defense, and petroleum industries
- Cheaper and more feasible than injection molding in many cases
- Reasonably low per-product cost
Tolerances: +/- 0.05mm Or Better On Request.
CNC milling is the automated version of the traditional milling process. CNC mills use a rotating multi-point cutting tool that follows the code and removes material progressively. Manufacturers use CNC milling widely to produce complex, asymmetric designs.
CNC mills can be 3-, 4-, or 5-axis machines and compatible with metal and plastic depending on the design. Prolean offers precision milling services using best-in-class CNC mills.
CNC turning is a process of manufacturing parts out of bars. Bars of material are fixed in a chuck and then rotated as a single-point cutting tool removes material to generate shapes as per the computer code.
CNC shops use CNC lathes and turning centers to manufacture axi-symmetric cylindrical parts that have different contours. The more affordable CNC lathe usually has just X and Z axes while turning centers come with an extra Y-axis and sub-spindle. Turning centers also boast milling and drilling capabilities that help manufacture more complex parts with just one machine. Prolean has the capabilities to produce high-precision turned metal and plastic parts.
Milling & Turning Combination
The combination of CNC milling and turning is, as the name suggests, milling and turning to create complex designs at the same machining center. Also called turn-milling, this process is a new addition to the CNC machining area and requires special CNC machines and engineers with expertise in both the processes.
Turn-milling saves floor space and time as the product doesn’t require transportation during manufacturing. As turn-milling doesn’t require clamping the material twice, tight tolerances can be achieved and finishing is better due to its higher speeds. Prolean has the modern CNC equipment capable of producing parts by turn-milling metals and plastics.
