Understanding 3-Axis Machining Value

As folks learn when exploring CNC machining, a computer controls all the movement of the machining tools, and that control is based on a pre-written program the computer follows. The program reflects the desired design, which takes into account the shape, dimensions and material being used. Given all the above, the machine tooling then goes […]

What Exactly is Precision Machining?

When the term “precision machining” comes up, many assume that this level of quality in machining is a standard. However, in reality, there is a wide spectrum of quality levels possible, from really bad to really, amazingly good product. Ideally, when a customer pays for a machining project, they expect a certain level of quality […]

The Best Precision Machining Technology

If computers helped usher in the availability of CNC machining, then it will be robotics that take precision machining technology to the next exponential level. Combined with high-production machinery, what used to be a one-off custom approach to part or product fabrication is now becoming a mainstream manufacturing option itself. And, when matched with robotics, […]

CNC Machining Methods: Milling vs Turning

When discussing computer-driven machining of parts, it’s quite common today to think in terms of computer-aided printing or similar. These are common perspectives based on popular media. However, CNC machining is what is often applied on a practical basis for part fabrication and production. Technically referred to as computer numerical control machining, CNC machining also […]

The Difference Between Milling and Welding for Fabrication

When it comes to forming metal constructs and shapes, the two most common methods used today without bolt attachments are either welding or milling. With milling, the metal is shaped from a larger block to the desired shape. With welding, separate pieces are bonded together molecularly with heat, taking advantage of metal’s malleability when its […]
