CNC machining greatly increases the level of complexity and detail that can be achieved, compared to traditional machining or water jet cutting alone. In addition to increases in capabilities, CNC machining provides cost savings on high quantity jobs and production processes.
Frequently Asked Questions
How accurate is CNC Machining?
Accuracy depends on the material and part, but typically tolerances of +/- 0.005″ or better can be achieved.
What is the turnaround time for CNC machining?
Small CNC jobs can be delivered or shipped withing 5-6 days. Larger jobs, or jobs requiring additional processing or steps will take longer. Lead times can be provided with a quote!
I'm preparing files for some parts I need CNC machined. What format should I send?
IGES, STEP, DWG and DXF files can all be used for machining, although STEP is ideal.
Can you machine the stock I bring in, or do I have to use yours?
Both! We can supply almost any material you need for your job, including special order metals and plastics, but you can bring material in to be cut as well! We do not charge more if you choose to supply your own stock.
Do you have a MOQ or minimum charge for CNC machining?
No! We often cut small, single parts. There is no minimum charge or order quantity, although all jobs are subject to setup and processing costs, rarely resulting in a job below $70.00 before shipping. We recommend ordering all your parts together, to save on these costs.
