A Computer numerical control (CNC) machining company produces more complex components in a fraction of the time as traditional machining shops. Today, CNC machining produces 3D parts with vertical and horizontal CNC equipment and programming software. For product manufacturers with zero margins for error, CNC machine components fill that gap with 100% precision and fast replication speeds.
Contract manufacturing companies employ machinists and licensed engineers who produce cnc precision miling services to the aerospace, energy, military, and medical industries to name just a few.
CNC Equipment and Program Software
CNC precision milling service equipment is programmed by machinists to turn metals and some plastics into unique and precise parts. CNC equipment and programs also provide full automatic tool changers and program chip removal systems. Operators program machinery and can move onto schedule other job runs with little to no setup or changeover time. Like most innovative technologies, CNC machining reduces operator errors, production times and costs. When the shop floor closes, CNC machining equipment continues to replicate job orders.
In-House vs. Outsource Licensed Engineers
Does your product manufacturing company employ its licensed engineers and designers? There are reputable CNC machining companies that do staff these highly skilled front-end designers. Many machining companies are just as experienced in working with clients’ in-house design teams.
However, if you need to outsource the entire production process, you can extend your company’s square footage with a single-source machining company with in-house designers and licensed engineers. Consider a machining company that places emphasis on prototype generation before replicating a component. Spending the time on the front-end to produce and test prototype components saves not only time but also waste and costs.
Cost Savings with Prototyping
Designers and engineers know that products developed at the draft table need to be tested. Prototyping and testing will identify flaws or other potential problems before it’s time to reproduce. Manufacturing any component and testing for potential design flaws, cleanliness, and selected material is crucial in a zero margin for error environment. Identify a reputable supplier that will partner with your product manufacturing firm to deliver the precise components that get your product to market before the competition.
