Tolerance and Precision CNC Machining

We are continuing our series of articles defining some of the most popular and important precision CNC machining terminology. Precision CNC machining processes such as close tolerance machining, small part machining, laser cutting, laser engraving, milling turning, etc. are affected by the accuracy, tolerance and precision of the machine shop equipment being used. Our previous article discussed accuracy. Today, we will define tolerance and what it means to the precision CNC machining process.

Tolerance is the permitted deviation measurement vs. the standard value.  Some projects have larger tolerances than others.  A machinist working on a project that calls for a smaller tolerance will take extra time to ensure everything needed for the set-up is accommodated as the process itself may require special tools and/or longer cycle times. JW Machine specializes in close tolerance part production to .0001”.

Our next article will cover precision in the CNC machining process.
