CNC Milling for Custom & Mass Manufacturing Solutions

Working with our manufacturing engineers, your design team will find a competent partner for complex custom milling parts jobs as well as high precision large volume work. Our experienced team works closely with your design engineers for design prototyping of the next generation of equipment, or to 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 material and mold parts of material including:

  • Aluminum
  • Steels and alloys
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Titanium
  • Wood
  • Marble
  • Medically used material

Apart from these metals, some steels that have been hardened through heat treatments can also be milled but this is time consuming. On the other hand, very soft materials like elastomers have limitations as they cannot be held by the chucks without damage. CNC milling of plastics is an economic operation to help you communicate design, and to review changes on the go.

More About CNC Milling

Our CNC milling centers use subtractive manufacturing methods to remove 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 as per your design inputs. The milling process is part of a manufacturing requirement that can include micromachining, CNC turning, 3D printing and 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 axes 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 axes Vertical Milling Machine [VMC] Movement of the spindle along X, Y, and Z-axis in 3D space

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

5 axes milling center 3 axes 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.
