Advantages of Precision CNC Machining

Part Three

We are continuing our series on the advantages of precision CNC machining. Our first article covered efficiency of precision CNC machining processes such as milling turning, close tolerance machining, small part machining, laser engraving, laser cutting and laser etching. Our second article discussed productivity aspects including automation, speed and material recovery. Part three of our series will discuss how precision CNC machining is safer for the operators and machinists.

Operator Interactions

Precision CNC machining reduces the chances of injury because less interaction is required. Enclosures and safety interlocks are designed to prevent possible operator injury.

Safety Barriers

Machinists are protected as most precision CNC machining operations occur inside a safety hood. This protects the operator from projectiles, fumes and heat.

Automatic Shutdowns

CNC Machines – including those used for small parts machining, milling turning, laser etching, laser cutting, laser engraving, and close tolerance machining – are equipped with multiple automatic safety switches designed the stop the machine and notify the operator if a problem occurs.  This helps prevent a hazardous condition from developing.

If you have an upcoming contract manufacturing or production to prototypes manufacturing project, JW Machine is ready to help.  Our machinists are expert operators who have extensive experience with precision CNC machining processes including milling turning, laser engraving, laser etching, laser cutting, close tolerance machining and small part machining. Esteemed companies including those in the aerospace, defense and OEM industries trust JW Machine with all of their CNC machine shop needs. Give us a call to learn more today!
