Build Parts in Final Production Materials
Whether for rapid prototypes or production parts, we have the right CNC machining options for both your metal and plastic part needs
How to Select the Right Manufacturing Solution
From rapid and functional prototyping, appearance models to low-volume production using both additive manufacturing and traditional subtractive processes; the choices to develop your project are almost endless.
About this process
CNC refers to cutting material with a computer numerical control machine. The CNC machining process interprets your 3D CAD model and translates data to CNC machines. The main benefit of the process is that CNC will produce parts that can replace the additive manufactured prototypes with true production grade materials. This method allows you to build your parts in the featured material that you intend for use in production. CNC machining is the best choice for rapid prototyping of high-quality metal and plastic parts requiring the greatest degree of dimensional accuracy, critical surface finishes, material-specific properties.
Whether for rapid prototypes or production parts, we have the right CNC machining options for your metal and plastic part needs.
- Wide range of materials
- Ability to hold tight tolerances
- Parts machined directly from 3D CAD models
- Standard delivery time of 1-2 weeks based on order
- Shorter lead time (2-5 business days) available per open capacity
Tolerances for feature size:
- Standard +/-.005
- Minimum +/-.002 for metal and +/-.003 for plastic
Tolerances for hole diameter:
- Standard +/-.005
- Minimum +/-.001 for metal and +/-.002 for plastic
Tolerances for Flatness, Run Out, Cylindricity, Perpendicularity and other Geometry:
- Minimum +/-.001 is possible per geometry dependent
The above tolerances will not apply when machining a weldment, or a plate below 1/4″ thick at a length above 20″ or 1/8″ thickness at a length exceeding 10″ long. In that case the tolerances need to be reviewed by the MFG team.
