CNC machining is among the most popular manufacturing methods used today to create custom machined parts with optimum strength, high precision and tight tolerance. There has been a tremendous growth in the use of CNC machining technique over the years, owing to machining flexibility and its compatibility with several materials from wood and plastic to foam and metal. Although CNC machining is considered to be the fast and cost-efficient
CNC machining and fabrication services have been there in use for several years. With the advent of technology, these machines have evolved in terms of having multiple axes, automated processes, and so on. This has helped manufacturers a lot to increase their production volumes, accuracy, time to market of goods, and so on. Hence, over the last few years, computer numerical control or CNC machining has gained immense
Over the years, 3D printing, popularly known as rapid prototyping, has gained immense popularity. It is considered as one of the future-oriented technologies. Since its introduction in the 1980s, there were strong projections that it may replace computer numeric control or CNC machining. However, that has not happened yet and is quite unlikely. Both CNC machining and 3D printing are widely used across industries as their benefits can
Milling is one of the important machining processes. It removes material from the workpiece via a rotary cutting process. Traditionally, it was performed by using milling machines. Over the years, computer numerical control (CNC) milling has replaced traditional milling in various industrial segments. CNC milling is widely employed in various manufacturing facilities to produce gears, washers, electronic components, and more. Similar to other CNC-operated machining processes, CNC milling
Rapid prototyping is a crucial step in the product design and development cycle. Product prototypes are helping understand the design, identify manufacturing defects and analyze the scope of failure in the product design cycle itself. It is essential to prevent defects and failure during the production cycle, else they may lead to huge losses in terms of money and product recalls.
There are different types of prototypes manufactured
