What machining services do you offer?

We do 3-, 4-, and 5-axis machining.

What is 5-axis CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machining?
5-axis machining uses a CNC to move a part or cutting tool along five axes at the same time. This is useful when making complex parts, especially for the aerospace industry. 5-axis CNC machining is also a single-setup, which saves time (and hence money).
Using the Cartesian Coordinate system, X, Y and Z represent three of the five axes in 5-axis machining.
Sounds great! Why not use 5-axis CNC exclusively?

Ultimately, the part dictates the machine we will use. The material might be perfect for 5-axis machining but, depending on the final product’s geometry, it might be better suited for another machine. The size of the part also makes a difference. If the part is too big to perform tool changes and part transfers, it won’t work.

Is there a minimum order?

No. We do low and high volumes, and everything in between.

What do you show clients on a tour? What can I expect?
We show our customers project management capabilities, our state-of-the-art and certified quality lab, the newest equipment and technologies, and robotic cells.
