CNC Milling for Custom & Mass Manufacturing Solutions

In working with our manufacturing engineers, your design team will find a competent partner in us for complex custom milling parts jobs and high-precision volume work. Our experienced team works closely with your design engineers to prototype the next generation of equipment or find new efficiencies to sustain our customer’s competitiveness. We strictly adhere to Design for Manufacturability and Assembly [DFMA] guidelines to minimize change orders and RFIs and to deliver the highest quality parts at the most efficient cost.

We take a cost-effective, minimum-waste machining approach to our projects. Our CNC milling shop offers services for different solid materials and mold parts of material, including:

  • Aluminum
  • Steels and alloys
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Titanium
  • Medically used materials

Apart from these metals, some steels hardened through heat treatments can still be milled, but this is time-consuming. On the other hand, very soft materials like elastomers have limitations as the chucks cannot hold them without damage. CNC milling of plastics is an economical operation to help you visualize and communicate design elements and review changes on the go.

More About CNC Milling

Our CNC milling centers use subtractive manufacturing methods in removing material from a solid blank of metal or plastic to create specific geometries. A rotating mill cutter cuts the metal from the workpiece to generate parts per your design inputs. The milling process is part of a manufacturing requirement for micromachining, CNC turning, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, etc.

Additionally, with computerized controls of machines, tool paths depend upon the programming accuracy. Slight deviations in the cutting tool’s motion could result in waste of material and eventually rejection.

At Macfab, we create complex geometries using our HAAS CNC milling machines and manual machines with 5, 4, and 3 axis rotating spindles. We use CAD/CAM applications to create an optimized tool path and deliver the desired design.

Understanding of Spindle Movements for a Typical Milling Machine

3-axis Vertical Milling Machine [VMC] Movement of the spindle along the X, Y, and Z-axes in 3D space

4-axis milling center Same as 3-axis milling center with an additional vertical movement for complex parts

5-axis milling center 3-axis spindle movement alongside rotatable spindle and worktable. It has 5 degrees of freedom for movement

The biggest advantage of using multi-axis milling centers is the accuracy and speed of machining operations that deliver cost and efficiency advantages.
