Parts on Demand provides a variety of exceptionally precise and competitively priced CNC machining services to fabricate simple to very complex part features in practically any type of metal or plastic composite material. The abbreviation CNC stands for computer numerical control, and refers specifically to a computer “controller” that reads G-code instructions from engineering CAD files and drives a machine tool, a powered mechanical device typically used to fabricate components by the selective removal of raw plastic or metal material.
SWISS SCREW MACHINING
Swiss Screw Machining is based on automated turning machine that continuously creates a number of finished parts from bar stock. Bar stock advances through the spindle and is held by a collet. It is also commonly called a bar machine. Swiss Screw Machining is a modified automated turret lathe distinguished by a sliding headstock and fixed bushing. Swiss-type machines are capable of creating very small and complex parts with excellent tolerances.
CNC PRECISION TURNING AND GRINDING
CNC Precision Turning and Grinding is comprised of various machining operations used to fabricate cylindrical parts. A cutting tool passes along the outer surface of a cylindrical work piece as it rotates and gradually removes a layer of material. The part is rotated and a cutting tool is traversed along a specific axis of motion to produce precise diameters and depths. CNC turning can be either on the outside of the cylinder or on the inside (also known as boring) to produce tubular components to various geometries.
5 AXIS CNC MACHINING
Five Axis CNC Machining refers to the ability of the CNC machine to perform movement about five different axes simultaneously. The benefits of the five axis machining is its ability to machine complex shapes in a single setup thus reducing set up time, increasing accuracy, reduction of potential errors and increased production rates.
