Working with Blank Rods

One of the most common blanks, or raw materials, used in CNC machining is the rod. Rods work best for turning operations due to the typically symmetrical design of many common parts. For many turning operations,

The Value of Workholding

Workholding refers to standardized or custom fixtures tasked with the important job of bracing the part during the CNC machining operation. A work holding piece may be called a fixture, bracket, jig, or clamp which also often defines the method used to hold the part.

Defining Precision and Accuracy

There are a few terms and phrases very commonly used in reference to CNC Machining. The industry is well known for its precision and speed (like in our name). Terms like tolerance, accuracy, and precision can be

Raw Materials for CNC Machining

Raw materials for CNC machining are chosen based on many factors. The machining process requires a level of accuracy and finish to fit a specific application or fit in a larger part. That can make selecting your raw material a difficult decision.

Cutting Approaches

Cutting approaches can bring to mind a few different options when considering how to raw material but, typically, refer to the feeds and speeds of CNC programming to achieve the precision cut.

Micromachining

Recent manufacturing trends are turning the phrase, “the bigger the better,” on its ear. Micromachining takes advantage of the high precision, speed, and repeatability of CNC machining to create intricate components smaller than the human eye can appreciate
