We are concluding our series of articles that explore the steps involved in the process of producing parts for the defense industry. Our previous articles covered how it is important to first identify the needs for precision CNC machining when it comes to the specific part you plan to produce, engaging an ISO 9001 / AS 9100 certified machine shop, and designing the part itself. Today, we will look at the final steps in the prototypes to production manufacturing / contract manufacturing processes as they apply to producing defense industry parts.
Review the Design with Your Machine Shop Team
Before production begins, it is essential to review the design with your machine shop team one last time to make sure everything is correct, and that the outcome will meet all specifications. This step saves a lot of time and money down the road because it can help discover and address any issues in the early stages. Once everyone is on board with the design, production can begin
Put the Part into Production
The specific precision CNC machining processes used to produce your part will vary depending on what type of part you are having manufactured. It typically involves using precision CNC machining processes such as CNC milling, CNC turning, laser cutting, small part machining, close tolerance machining, etc. to cut and shape raw materials into your desired final product according to your provided specifications. Laser engraving may be used for branding, marking, and/or serialization of the parts.
