CNC Machining

When you need quality metal or plastic parts in low-mid volumes, CNC machining is usually the way to go. Automated Production Machining, Inc. specializes in creating parts with our CNC mills, lathes and machining centers.

What is CNC Machining?

CNC stands for “computer numerical control.” CNC machines are programmed with your project specifications, ensuring each part will be the same as the last. ┬áThis allows for a more accurate rendering of your drawing and less variation between parts.

How Does CNC Machining Work?

A programmer creates a program for a machine based on the specifications of your drawing. Next, the machine is setup with the newly created program. This program tells the tools inside the equipment the most efficient way to create a part.

Once the machine is setup with the program and stock, an operator monitors everything to make sure your project is running smoothly.

What Types of CNC Machines Are There?

Several types of CNC machines exist. The most common types of industrial CNC equipment are:

  • Routers
  • Plasma Cutters
  • Milling Machines
  • Lathes
  • CNC Laser Cutters
  • 3D Printers (industrial, sintered metal)
  • Mill-turn multi-axis machines
  • Surface grinders
  • Tool & cutter grinders (e.g. Walter, Anka)
  • Multi-axis and specialty machines
