WHAT IS CNC PRECISION MACHINING?
CNC precision machining is an integral part of manufacturing. It involves shaping raw material into a finished product by cutting out excesses designated by a CAD or CAM blueprint. Moreover, machinists use this process in different manufacturing processes and other materials. If you’re an engineer, you might know that precision machining can be done with a machine or hand tool. Many engineers rely on this process to create prototypes for product designs. However, the tools used for precision machining vary widely depending on the machine being used—from milling machines to lathes and scroll saws to high-precision laser cutters.
Sometimes precise machining is called surface planning because it involves imagining what surfaces will look like after they have been formed by cutting. This concept can be applied in both product design and manufacturing processes. For example, if you’re designing a new product (or redesigning an existing one). In that case, you’ll need to consider how it will look after it has been made into reality with the help of precision machining techniques.
High-precision machining allows for manufacturing parts that are otherwise difficult to achieve with other methods. For example, it can be helpful when you need to produce parts with extremely tight tolerances—tight tolerances that are often difficult to achieve by making multiple parts at once. High-precision CNC machining also allows your company to produce CNC precision machining parts that are more finely detailed than those produced by other methods.
CNC precision machined parts are some of the most critical components in your car’s engine. Precision machining is a popular method used to create metal parts that require precision for the product to function correctly. Precision machines may include threads, holes, grooves, or tapers that must provide an exact fit with other components.
The machining process has become more precise than ever before, requiring machinists to use specialized equipment for closer tolerance. Using computer numerically controlled machines (CNC machines), lathes, and presses, our team manufactures a wide range of intricate metal parts that require keen attention to detail. We can achieve this precision by using advanced software that allows us to scale up or down the size of our workpieces. This means we can create intricate metal parts on demand, which provides greater flexibility in our manufacturing process.
LOW VOLUME CNC MACHINING
At Zetwerk, precision components and assemblies are produced in low-volume CNC machining and parts services. The team recognizes that these parts may not be fully optimized for production. If there is a problem with the design of your part, Zetwerk can help you make changes to ensure you get the quality you need. In addition, they have two resident 3D CAD (Solidworks) and mechanical design engineers on standby to assist with any manufacturing issues should the need arise. This guides you on how to improve the design of your part so it will be more efficient, durable, and accurate when it goes into production. This contributes significantly to the overall efficiency and speedy output.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHILE LOOKING FOR LOW VOLUME CNC MACHINING
First, a low-volume approach to CNC machining is very different from the regular volume production strategies that many precision companies employ. Second, it is essential to produce in the shortest possible overall time to provide the most efficient and cost-effective solution.
And when you’re talking about single parts or small batches, Zetwerk has a comprehensive list of work holding and tooling solutions designed to aid the CNC machining process where single items and small batch CNC machining are required.

PRECISION CNC MACHINING & PARTS | OEM CNC MACHINING PARTS
When you’re looking for a CNC milling machine, you might not be sure what to look for. It would be best if you had it to be reliable, versatile, and fast. You also want it to be high-quality and easy to use. And you want it to be durable—you don’t want your investment to break down after a few months of use. Aerospace Metals has the solution: high-speed turret/lasers that provide efficient automated loading and unloading with unmatched quality. These machines are ideal for the medical, marine, aerospace, transportation, electronics, oil and gas, military, and defense industries—all where time is money (and quality is critical).
Explore here how CNC machining helps various industries in detail.
They also have vertical or horizontal milling machines that save time while producing high-quality products. You can’t beat that! When you need to produce a product built to last, CNC machining is the way to go. CNC machining is a process that a variety of CNC machines can perform. The methods are used in multiple applications across various industries, including medical, aerospace, industrial, oil and gas, hydraulics, firearms, etc. In addition, a variety of materials can be CNC machined. In addition, it is conducive to medium and high volume requirements where accuracy and complexity are required.
CNC LATHES AND TURNING MACHINES
CNC lathes and machines are great for turning cylindrical arts like in the car industry. But they’re also great for creating internal and external features on your part! Take a screw head, for example. We’ll show you how to make it using a CNC Swiss Lathe (a type of machine we operate). Since the tooling rotates around the circumference of the part, it provides much better support for the material as it’s machined. This means you can create tighter tolerances on that screw head—and it’ll be easier to tighten down when you’re done!
CNC MILLING MACHINES
The CNC milling machine is an industrial machine that cuts metal using computer numerical control (CNC). No other tool or materials are required; it can work with almost any type of metal. Instead, it uses machining and CNC technology to move the cutting tools along programmed paths to cut metal parts. Then, it removes material from either side of a workpiece mounted on a vertical axis. CNC mills are also used for grinding and polishing, which is ideal for metals that cannot be machined with a lathe or drill press. This includes hardened steel materials and other high-wear-resistant materials such as ceramics.
CNC LASER MACHINES
CNC laser machines are a great way to cut, slice, and engrave materials. They can be used to produce precision cuts for products that require more intricate designs, such as logos and company names. These machines have higher quality results than conventional cutting machines (lathes, turning centers, mills). They also produce cuts that do not require additional finishing processes.
CNC ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE MACHINES (EDM)
The CNC Electrical Discharge Machine (EDM) is a fantastic tool that can help you create various intricate shapes and features in almost any material. A CNC electric discharge machine (EDM) works by placing a component under the electrode wire, emitting an electrical discharge from the wire, and producing intense heat (up to 21,000 degrees Fahrenheit).
CNC PLASMA CUTTING MACHINES
CNC plasma cutting machines are used in various industries, from aerospace to automotive to medical equipment. They use a high-powered plasma (electronically-ionized gas) torch to cut through materials. The plasma torch melts through the workpiece, creating a cut in the material. Whenever CNC plasma cutting is employed, the fabric being cut must be electrically conductive. Typical materials include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper. CNC precision machining offers an array of production capabilities for components in the manufacturing environment. Depending on the environment of use and lead time, volume, and budget requirements, there is usually an optimum method for delivering the desired result.
As you can see here, CNC precision machining is the most commonly used method to manufacture prototypes. However, there is also a place for computer numerical control (CNC) additive manufacturing in the prototyping process. Engineers often use resin prototypes of models they’ve designed. These castings are usually made from silicone or similar material that can tolerate heat—the casting process allows them to be manufactured. When it comes to precision and quality manufacturing, there’s no one better than CNC Precision Machining. These machines are built to last—they are durable and reliable, but they are also versatile in their applications.
