CNC Machining 101: What Are CNC Machining Services?

CNC machines have become increasingly popular in various industries due to their precision and efficiency. They are manufacturing different parts and fittings in a wide range of industries, such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, and medical equipment manufacturing. No matter you want to know more about what is CNC machine or would like to get more information on how to choose CNC machine service, you have come to the right place!

What is CNC machining service?

CNC machining services use fast, repeatable, and programmable machines to manufacture components with precision and accuracy. CNC machining is capable of performing complex tasks like cutting, drilling, milling, and shaping materials like metal, wood, or plastic, making them a popular choice for applications in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical devices, and consumer goods.

Type of Common CNC Machining Services

CNC Machining Services are always prepared to meet the demands of tight tolerances and complex CNC machined products. Generally, the more complex a design is, the more high-precision of CNC machining services it will need. Here is a brief introduction to CNC machine services:

CNC Turning


  • Overview of CNC Turning

CNC turning, an accuracy and precision machining process, creates cylindrical parts by removing material from a rotating workpiece. CNC turning is quite simple. This process involves the use of a lathe machine equipped with computer-controlled tools that precisely cut and shape the workpiece according to programmed instructions.

  • Advantages of CNC Turning

1. Precision and Accuracy

CNC turning is a common process in the manufacture of various metal parts with precision and accuracy such as engine parts, shafts, bushings, and gears.

2. Consistency, Repeatability, and Efficiency

Compared with typical manual turning, CNC turning has several advantages when manufacturing components including consistency, repeatability, and efficiency.

  • Application of CNC Turning

CNC turning can be adopted in manufacturing different parts and fittings in a wide range of industries such as automotive, aerospace, electronics, and medical device manufacturing. In the automotive industry, CNC turning is used to create engine components, transmission parts, and other critical components. In aerospace manufacturing, it is utilized for producing turbine blades, landing gear components, and structural parts.

CNC Milling


  • Overview of CNC Milling

CNC milling is a machining process that utilizes computerized controls and rotating multi-point cutting tools to remove material from a workpiece. One of the features of the CNC milling process is that the workpiece remains stable and the cutting tools can be rotated at high speeds to produce precise cuts and shapes.

  • Advantages of CNC Milling

1. Cost-efficient

Our CNC milling is extremely cost-efficient for mass production. Metal parts can be CNC milled in a few minutes or even seconds by optimizing the tool paths and using some cutting tools.

2. Materials Options

CMC milling can be used to create parts from various materials such as metals, plastics, and composites.

  • Application of CNC Milling

CNC milling machining is appropriate for general-purpose parts and components such as gears and shafts, nuts and bolts, and flanges. Furthermore, it is appropriate for both large-scale and short-term production. CNC milling is also applicable in making many aeronautic components using materials such as Titanium and Aluminum because the material in aeronautics requires lightweight and durability.

4-axis & 5-axis CNC Machining


  • Overview of 4-axis CNC Machining

4 Axis CNC machining refers to the process of using a CNC machine to create complex and intricate parts on a workpiece. Unlike traditional machining methods,

4 Axis CNC machining consists of three axes (X, Y, and Z), and an additional rotational axis.

  • Overview of 5-axis CNC Machining

5 Axis CNC machining involves three typical axes of movement (X, Y, and Z), 5-axis CNC machining allows for two additional rotational axes (A and B).

  • Advantages of 4-axis & 5-axis CNC Machining

1. High-precision Production

4-Axis & 5-Axis machine services are unrivaled in terms of speed and flexibility. We have the ability to offer the best-machined components because of a comprehensive selection of modern 4-Axis or 5-axis CNC machines and a long list of materials.

2. Short Lead Time

Our skilled staff and manufacturing skills help in the rapid design and fabrication of complex, time-sensitive components.

  • Application of 4-axis & 5-axis CNC Machining

4-Axis & 5-Axis CNC Machine services are your best choice when it comes to producing high-precision and complexity fittings within a wide range of industries. Our manufacturing capabilities allow us to produce several components efficiently.
