Precision CNC machining has become the industry gold standard when it comes to machine shop services. The main difference between conventional machining and CNC machining is that CNC equipment uses computers to control the movement of the machining tools whereas conventional machining relies on the machinist to control the tools. There are numerous types of CNC machines that can be used to produce prototypes to production manufacturing and contract manufacturing projects. Let’s take a look at some of the most common types of precision CNC machining equipment:
CNC Milling Machines
CNC milling machines hold the material in place while the cutting tools rotate to create the specified shape, which may include peripheral or face-milled features, slots or keyways.
CNC Turning Machines
CNC turning machines are the opposite of CNC milling machines in that they rotate the material while stationary cutting tools are used to remove material to create features such as bores, reamed holes, threads and more.
Laser Engraving Machines
Laser engraving machines are commonly used to mark and serialize parts. They are precise enough to place a logo, serial number, etc. on even the smallest of parts.
