Applications for CNC Milling

OEMs can slash procurement time and costs for precision parts with a supplier network secured by blockchain for anti-counterfeit, recalls and more.

Tooling Parts

Because CNC can be applied
to virtually any material, it is
perfect for rapid tooling, i.e.,
creating fixtures or molds.

NPI Prototyping Parts

The range of materials available,
low cost per unit, and speed of
production makes CNC a great
option for prototyping.

Production Parts

High-quality finish, vast material
options and precise tolerances
have made CNC a favorable
technology for end-use parts.

CNC Milling for Industrial Applications

Manufacturers producing complex, critical, and precision products rely on CNC Milling capabilities to
deliver the parts needed at the highest quality, greatest speed, and best comparable price.

Working with experienced and certified CNC Milling shops provides a wide range of manufacturers, in a
variety of industries, with the high-quality components required.

What is CNC Milling?

Using a variety of cutting tools, Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining removes materials from a block, also referred to as a workpiece or blank. This subtracting manufacturing process is the opposite of 3D printing (or additive printing where the material is added to create a part or injection molding (where the raw material is molded into a part shape).

How does CNC Milling work?

CNC mills excel at profile cutting harder materials. Like all CNC machines, a CNC mill is controlled with G-Code created through CAM software. CNC milling is made up of several steps in the process:
cnc milling 4

CAD modeling

CAD model is drawn on a computer by an engineer or designer.
cnc milling 5

Convert to G-code

The CAD file is transferred into a CNC-readable program, also known as G-code. This G-code is used to set up the CNC milling machine.

CNC Milling

Material is removed from the workpiece using specialized tools rotating has extremely speeds. Accuracy is achieved after initial passes are made and precise amounts of material are removed in the finishing passes.
cnc milling 7

Deburring

After milled, the part is deburred, which is a manual process of removing small defects from sharp blade edges by hand. The component is inspection and ready to use.

What part types can CNC Milling produce?

CNC milling is used to produce many parts and geometry types. With tight tolerances and high accuracy, CNC milling is a 3-axis rotating tool and the most common type of CNC machine. In fact, the term CNC milling is often used interchangeably with CNC machining.
CNC milling parts are typically:

CNC Panel Milling – Large Format

Large Format CNC Machining

Use SyncFab to manufacture large format finished parts and components for space and aerospace with precision and speed in either five milling or six abrasive waterjet axes along the defined tool path to produce completed parts. SyncFab large format multi-process machining capabilities can handle the processes of trimming, drilling, routing, surface milling, marking and inspection all in one set up to machine large format parts in a variety of materials for composite aerostructures from “Autoclave to Inspection” with the highest quality large format machining available.

CNC Milling Large Panels With Superior Quality And Short Cycle Times

The conventional approach to panel production has been to use panel saws, guillotines, drills and turret punches. This approach is labor intensive. It requires panels to be moved from one station to another. Consistency is an issue where multiple machines and operators are involved. Common panels we fabricate are typically 50″, 62″ or 72″ wide and typically up to 144″ long. By using a CNC Router with the bed size to handle the full sheet (6′ x 12′) in one piece our panel routing system produces precision panels in a single operation.

Why should Buyers consider CNC Milling?

For precision parts production, CNC milling really can’t be beaten. Buyers are guaranteed extreme accuracy of CNC milling parts that is unmatched from traditional milling methods. Parts production offers a high degree of repeatability resulting in high-quality, exact accuracy whether for a single component or many parts.
