Precision CNC Micro Machining for Small Parts
Macfab’s high-tech CNC Micro Machining facility employs advanced tooling capabilities, ensuring precision in even the smallest parts produced. Devices are shrinking in today’s technologically advanced industries. The shrinking sizes of devices means even smaller parts and components are able to be produced with better precision and accuracy.
Using today’s advanced machining toolsets with Geometric Dimensions and Tolerances [GD&Ts] are capable of producing precision parts that are not visible to the naked eye. Our machinists use micro blasters, micro drill press, and mini polishing lathe to deliver leading edge efficiency, finish, and form.
The field of research in the medical industry requires fiber optics, spectroscopy, or satellite communication. The microchips in these devices need complex components and accurate micro parts. As the demand for such equipment grows, the demand for Micro Machining services is set to grow too. Macfab is here to serve you as a reliable partner and industry leading CNC Micro Machining service provider.
What is CNC Micro Machining?
Micromachining is a machining technique employed to produce parts smaller than 0.015” in diameter. It requires specialized abrasive tools with 1/3rd size of the thickness of a human hair to achieve desired dimensions and surface finishes.
A heavy upsurge in demand for Micro Machining was seen in the late 1990s with advancements in semiconductors. As a result, today, it is used extensively in the medical, communication, and electronic manufacturing industries.

Popular Methods For CNC Micro Machining
Laser Micro Machining
The medical or biomedical research equipment manufacturing sectors leverage this technique. Laser micro machining involves the removal of metal from the blank by evaporation at high temperatures generated by UV or infrared beams. As the local metal surface is heated, elemental bonds are broken, and the molecules start evaporating.
Electrical Discharge Machining [EDM]
Operations such as hole drilling, milling, and turning at micro levels can be performed accurately with electrical plasma discharge. The process involves impacting a small area of the workpiece with a concentrated beam of plasma from electrodes. The heat is enough to vaporize the material and remove it from the blank to produce the desired shape. There are different types of EDM machines available such as wire EDM, fine wire EDM, and sinker EDM that are used in the process.
Use Of Traditional CNC Machines
Some CNC Swiss turn-style lathe machines and 3, 4, and 5-axis CNC mill centers possess micromachining capabilities. These machine tools with a specialty setup can attain high spindle speed for turning, drilling, or punching holes, and milling.
Benefits of Micro Machining
Micro Machining enables the production of parts over a range of sizes and tolerances. Additionally, there are numerous other benefits of Micro Machining.
