Precision CNC Machining: What Affects the Cost?

Part Two

We are continuing our series on the aspects that influence the cost of a precision CNC machining project.  The bottom line is always something to consider with any contract manufacturing or prototypes to production manufacturing job.  There are various factors that can affect the cost of a small part machining, milling turning, laser cutting, laser engraving or small part machining project. Our previous article covered the design process and complexity, and the overall cost of materials.  Today, we will look at two more factors to consider.

Precision CNC Machining Process

The type(s) of precision CNC machining processes and time required to produce your contract manufacturing or prototypes to production manufacturing job have an impact on overall cost. We carefully evaluate each project to determine the most cost effective process to achieve your desired end result.


The quantity you wish to produce impacts the overall costs.  We encourage customers to not only consider their current needs, but what they will need in the future.  Planning ahead can save on additional time and set-up costs for many precision CNC machining services such as milling turning, laser engraving, laser cutting, small part machining and close tolerance machining.
