CNC stands for Computer Numerical Controlled. This means the milling process is controlled by a programmed code entered into the software that monitors and manages the machine tools. CNC machining is known as a subtractive manufacturing center process. It starts by affixing a block of metal or plastic inside the CNC mill. From there, the machine takes over and mills the block of raw material into the cavities we’ve designed and input into the software.
The milling procedure commonly uses cylindrical cutting tools that can rotate in multiple directions and come with various attachments based on the requirements of the device we’re machining. The process is similar to drilling or cutting, but much more precise thanks to the advanced nature of the equipment.
You can think of it as our machines chipping away and sculpting your molds out of the raw materials. This kind of construction can create unique shapes and designs that would be impossible to reproduce with manual milling techniques. The milling machines also give us the perfect balance between rapid production and precise engineering. They are an excellent example of our mission to deliver high-quality products quickly and to your specifications.
