Conventional Machining & Toolmaking
Our conventional machining/toolmaking section is capable of numerous machining processes.
Manual CNC Turning
CNC Turning: Turning is a slightly different process compared to CNC milling. CNC turning relies upon computer-controlled machines, but creates a different end product. The process uses a single-point cutting tool that is inserted parallel to the material that will be cut.
Small & Medium Turning
Turning is a form of machining, a material removal process, which is used to create rotational parts by cutting away unwanted material. … The workpiece is a piece of pre-shaped material that is secured to the fixture, which itself is attached to the turning machine, and allowed to rotate at high speeds.
Small & Medium Milling
Milling machines are very versatile. They are usually used to machine flat surfaces, but can also produce irregular surfaces. They can also be used to drill, bore, cut gears, and produce slots. The type of milling machine most commonly found in student shops is a vertical spindle machine with a swiveling head.
Small & Medium Surface Grinding
Surface grinding is the most common of the grinding operations. It is a finishing process that uses a rotating abrasive wheel to smooth the flat surface of metallic or nonmetallic materials to give them a more refined look by removing the oxide layer and impurities on work piece surfaces. This will also attain a desired surface for a functional purpose.
Our skilled toolmakers can produce build-to-print parts, sub-assemblies, and complete tooling packages. We use leading software to aid our experienced team to service customers around the world. Our toolmakers and machinists produce punches, pins, rollers, blocks, cams, and mold details, among other precision tools and die parts.
