Incorporating the precision of computers with the actions of machining dates all the way back to the 1950s. It didn’t take long for the union of the previously manual operations of milling — much like cutting and drilling — to be paired up with the emergence of computerized controls. The invention of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling and machining allowed for the repeatable production of highly complex and detailed parts.
Today, at Summit Steel & Manufacturing, we have over two and half decades of experience producing parts with the most demanding specifications imaginable. Our highly trained machinists are extremely experienced in employing CNC machining to meet all of your precision, budget and timeline needs. And when it comes to materials, we’re experts in everything from traditional metals to rare alloys.
In addition to allowing high levels of precision and repeatability, CNC milling can operate on multiple axes. Once the operator programs in the desired shape and cuts necessary to produce the part, the CNC milling machine can move across anywhere from three to five axes, making cuts that would be impossible for a single axis manual milling machine. The resulting process is not only desirable for the production of highly complex prototypes, but because of the time saved by CNC machining, it’s also an affordable choice for larger orders.
Industries Using CNC Precision Milling
One of the biggest advantages of CNC milling services is the versatility it provides in turning raw materials into countless different products. We offer precision CNC milling of everything from cell phone parts, light fixtures and television components to cylinder heads, gears, housings, valves and prosthetics. Our processes are reliable, highly accurate, eco-friendly and flexible to meet your custom fabrication needs.
CNC machined parts by Summit Steel & Manufacturing are used in a wide range of industries. Consider the safety regulations that every part used in the aerospace and automotive industries must meet. Then there are the cost and timeline issues associated with producing exact repeatable components for the construction, agriculture and energy industries.
Of course, when it comes to machining components for use for a wide variety of industries, everything from confidentiality to minute precision is a prerequisite for a successful working relationship. Whether you need to create a product prototype or have a higher-volume production run, our CNC milling services deliver the consistent, repeatable results you’re looking for.
CNC milling can be performed on the following types of materials:
- Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Alloy Steel
