As the machined or deburring
The machined or deburring finish is the standard finish where unwanted attach chips are removed with deburring tools, and sharp edges are chamfered to smooth the surface (3.2 μm).
Bead blasting produces a matte texture, removing all the marks of machining tools. It applies to ABS, Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, and Steel parts.
Anodizing involves adding an aluminum oxide coating to aluminum and its alloys. The layers, which come in various colors, increase strength and shield the surface from corrosion.
Powder coating is the electrostatically applying of dry powder to the surface. It produces a thin layer providing excellent resistance to wear, corrosion, and abrasion.
Physical rubbing of a metal surface to create a shiny surface is called a polishing surface finish. It increases the reflectivity and does not affect the dimensional stability of parts.
Brushing is achieved by applying an abrasive brush to the metal surface, which produces a unidirectional satin finish. And it is not recommended for highly corrosive materials.
Smooth machining is done by controlling the machining process, such as feed rate & cutting speed. It minimizes the tool marks and risk of corrosion.
Black oxide finish reduces surface reflectivity and offers mild corrosion protection. It involves adding a thin layer of magnetite to the surface.
Electro-less Nickel Plating
A thin layer of Nickel is created on the surface from a nickel-containing solution without electrolysis. Electro-less nickel plating provides a shiny appearance, excellent hardness, abrasive, wear, and corrosion-resistance to the substrate material.
Provides excellent corrosion resistance property to the aluminum parts with greenish-gold color. It is the low-cost and quick surface finishing approach.
Electroplating increases the hardness of the steel &aluminum parts. It offers excellent corrosion, wears, and abrasion resistance.
Make the parts super resistive to corrosion. It enhances mechanical strength, hardness, wear resistance, lubricity, and ductility. Nickel plating is applicable in different materials, including Steel, aluminum, copper, and brass.
Enhance the appearance and functionality of the parts. After Passivation, parts of Steel and its alloys become super resistive from corrosion.
Yellow Chromate conversion coating
A shiny appearance with goldish color provides excellent corrosion resistance. It is applied on the surface of aluminum, magnesium, and their alloys. A layer of chromate also enhances the conductivity of parts
PTFE (Teflon) Coating
The Teflon layer on the parts offers excellent corrosion resistance, water resistance, and non-stickiness with a non-reactive surface.
The higher-precision machines produce delicate machining surfaces by utilizing sharper tools and regulating feed rate and cutting speed. Surface roughness up to Ra 0.8 μm can be maintained with smooth machining.
Provides excellent corrosion, wear, and abrasion resistance. Laser Cladding is also effective for treating minor surface imperfections such as cavities, tiny cracks, and rust damage.
Provides a random, non-linear texture with a shiny, high gloss finish. However, it might be unable to create sharp corners and pockets

What is CNC machining?
CNC refers to Computer Numerical control. CNC machines are electro-mechanical devices that can manipulate tools around a varying number of axes with high precision as per instruction from the computer. As a result, the CNC machine can create complex geometrical parts with high precision in less time. In addition, because all machining controls, such as feed rate, tool positioning, and speed, are automated, tight machining tolerance is achievable compared to labor-intensive machining approaches.
Principle of CNC machining
The operation working principle of a CNC machine consists of four primary steps:
• Uploading a CAD file
• Digital instructions
• Adjusting the workpiece position
• Running the machine with programming
The CAD file of the parts to be machined is first uploaded, and instructions are sent via digital command before the tool begins to form the shape with the attached workpiece.
Workpieces can be machined in multiple axes depending on machine capacity (3-axis, 4-axis, 5-axis, & 6-axis). An electric motor controls each axis’ movement.
The cutting tool moves following the digital command and operations such as tool speed, feed, depth of cut, and others are controlled by coding (CNC programming). A warning system also alerts the operator to any operational errors or safety precautions throughout the machining process.
Different types of CNC Machining
Numerous (10+) types of CNC machines are designed for specific machining operations. For example, CNC milling creates complex geometries that allow up to six-axis machining. Milling rotates the workpiece and removes the tool following the uploaded drawing and command. CNC routers are functionally similar to CNC milling machines but are used for softer materials such as aluminum, wood, and plastics. The CNC routing machine works by routing the spindle and tool path.
CNC Turning is primarily used for cylindrical workpieces, and it renovates the material from the outer surface of the rotating workpiece for facing, chamfering, and other operations. Its caliber is generally measured by rotating speed. CNC plasma cutters use electronically-ionized gas (plasma) to cut the workpiece precisely. The plasma beam strikes the metal and cuts it, even though the plasma temperature can reach 10,000 degrees Celsius.
The process of CNC machining
CNC machining is a type of manufacturing in which computer software dictates the movement of tools and machinery. The CNC machining process can control various complex machinery, including grinders, lathes, mills, and routers. Three or more dimensional cutting tasks can be completed using a single set of prompts with CNC machining.
Under CNC Machining, Machine tools function through numerical control. A computer program is customized for a workpiece. The machines are programmed with a CNC machining language called G-code that essentially controls all features like feed rate, coordinate, location, and speeds. In addition, the computer controls the exact positioning and velocity of the operation.

What is the achievable tolerance limit for CNC machining?
±0.005″ or 0.13mm is the standard machining tolerance. However, tool tolerance can deviate from standard tolerance. For example, if the tolerance is ±0.01 mm, the standard tolerance is changed by 0.01 mm.
What are the standard CNC machining tolerances available from Prolean?
Our CNC machines can limit tolerance to ±0.0002 inches. However, if you have a critical product, we can tighten the tolerances up to ±0.025mm or 0.001mm as per the drawing.
How large of a part or panel can be CNC machined with Prolean?
Our maximum CNC machining build is 2000 mm x 1500 mm x 300 mm, which is large enough for furniture and architectural components. Overall, we are happy to serve the prototyping and production of large machined parts made of plastic or metal.
Why choose CNC Machining
Choosing CNC machining over traditional manufacturing approaches has several advantages. Still, the main three are that you can achieve a high degree of accuracy, complex geometries can be created, and it significantly reduces production time.
