Precision machining explained

In precision machining, the excess of a larger piece of material is used to manufacture a smaller piece of material. Material removal procedures are used to change the large piece, so that the smaller piece will be a perfect fit for the desired area and will carry out its task to the highest standard. A wide range of machinery is utilised to deliver the results, with the materials coming in many different forms.

The CNC process

Over the years, technological advancements have made it easier to create even the most complex parts. Materials used in precision machining include wood, metal and plastic. Precision machining is largely based on the Computer Numerical Controlled or CNC process. Numerical control is used to control tools like grinders, mills and lathes. The margin for error is removed by computers. Once the design is loaded to a computer, the manufacturing work begins. It only takes a small amount of time to produce materials which would otherwise require a number of steps.

The highest levels of accuracy

The CNC process plays a pivotal role in precision machining. It is well known for its high level of accuracy, with correct drawings allowing for cuttings of the greatest precision. Templates can be used to replicate cuttings when repeat orders are needed, with wastage being kept to an absolute minimum thanks to the accuracy of the machinery. CNC is also highly regarded for its safety, with operators being kept out of harm’s way thanks to the automated nature of the process.

A wide range of materials

We use a wide range of manufacturing materials to create the items our customers require. These include metals, elastomers and thermoplastics in various grades. These materials include ABS, aluminium, brass, carbon steel, copper, mild steel, nylon, PVC, stainless steel and titanium, to give just a few examples.

Advantages of precision machining

When you opt for precision engineering to manufacture products, you can reduce or remove the risk of human error. We use highly-advanced numerically-controlled machines and can offer swift turnaround times to assist customers with strict deadlines. We can speed up the process without making compromises on quality and can supply you with precise, flawless results every time. The solutions that we provide make your company more efficient, with our processes keeping waste to a minimum, enabling you to make a better contribution to the environment.

Highly-detailed parts

Another great reason for opting for precision machining is that you can create highly unique parts with intricate details that require total accuracy. We use innovative, marketing leading CAD solutions to interpret designs, and our equipment can be relied upon to deliver optimal precision. Our machinery works at a much faster pace than humans and removes the requirement for manual assembly. This means we can take on sizeable amounts of large projects whilst providing the quality our clients are seeking. You can make use of all the material needed for production thanks to the way precision machining reduces waste so effectively.

Meeting your needs

Our services are being met with increasing demand in an era where companies are seeking new ways to enhance efficiency, and productivity whilst boosting revenue. We can be counted on to manage projects of all sizes effectively, and we are only content when you are wholly satisfied with the end result.
