Understanding CNC Machining

To fully appreciate the capabilities of our foundry and machine shop, it’s essential to understand what CNC machining is and how it contributes to our diverse offerings.

CNC, or Computer Numerical Control, is a process where pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. It can control complex machinery like grinders, mills, routers, and lathes.

 

We use CNC machining because it’s incredibly precise, efficient, and adaptable. Its precision allows us to create intricate and detailed parts that are consistent and high-quality. Its efficiency means we can produce these parts quickly, reducing the time between order and delivery for our customers. And its adaptability means we can use it for a wide range of materials, including our specialty of aluminum and brass casting.

In our foundry and machine shop, we’ve integrated CNC machining with our casting processes. This vertical integration allows us to control every step of the production process, from casting to final machining, which helps us maintain our high standards and respond immediately to changes in the production environment.

With CNC machining, we’re able to serve a diverse set of industries, from marine to agriculture, and provide them with the high-quality parts they need.
