Our CNC Machining Services Capabilities
As one of the fastest-growing precision CNC machining services, the following machining capabilities at I.C.E are available to serve your needs of CNC machined parts, from rapid prototyping to precision parts and tooling machining parts to end-use production.
CNC Turning: a technology through which the material block is fixed on the CNC turning centre or lathe rotating with high speed, while the cutting tool moves into the rotating axis to process the workpiece and get CNC turned parts with exact sizes.
CNC Milling: often regarded as the most common machining process, which refers to utilizing a CNC milling cutter to make circular motion and create milled parts with specific shapes and details in a stationary piece, including slots, holes, notches, grooves, etc.
CNC Drilling: a cutting process in which the workpiece is fixed, aligning the cutter centre with the hole centre and rotating to produce round holes, can be done on lathes and mills.
CNC Milling and Turning: a compound machining technology in which the cutting tool and workpiece rotate to produce complex curved or special-shaped parts through designed multiple kinds of tasks.
CNC turning is a particular form of the precision CNC machining process that holds a cylindrical workpiece in a chuck and rotated, while the cutting tool is fed to the piece and removing material to get the desired CNC turned components, leaving an excellent surface finish that sometimes requires no post-processing. Turning can be performed on the outside or inside of the workpiece to produce tubular components to diverse geometries.
CNC milling (computer numerical control milling) is a CNC machining process that involves removing material from the workpiece by rotating and moving a cutting tool, such as a milling cutter, and positioning the workpiece properly, to produce or finish a custom CNC machining object. CNC milling technique can be used to shape a part from beginning to finish, it’s best to produce features or definitions as a secondary or finishing process for machined components. The milling cutting tool can be placed horizontally or vertically, but since the numerically controlled milling machines have evolved strongly, moving on several axis, up to 5 axis, allowing much more movement of the cutting item in addition to the repositioning of the piece.
Drilling is the cutting process in which the workpiece does not move, making the cutter move, aligning the cutter centre with the hole centre, and making the cutter rotate. CNC Drilling is primarily done on CNC machines including CNC milling machines and lathes. CNC drilling service produces round holes, typically for machine screws and bolts. Drilling can process CNC drilling parts with metals, hard plastics, wood and most other rigid materials. There are several types of drilling machines available for CNC, including these drill presses: Upright, Bench and Radial.
CNC Milling and Turning
CNC turning or CNC milling allows to manufacture of CNC parts in single handling, while CNC milling-turning is a compound machining technology, to execute designed multiple kinds of tasks with the computer numerical control when the cutting tool and workpiece are both rotating. With CNC milling and turning services, complex curved or special-shaped parts can be produced through the processing of multiple surfaces on the CNC milling-turning centre. CNC turn-milling machines can reach any surface of the components. Most of the CNC turn-milling compound process can be completed on the CNC turning centre. There are two different CNC turning-milling types:
– Contour machining when the workpiece is parallel to the cutter axis
– Surface machining when the workpiece is vertical to the cutter axis.
