Some custom components require milling operations and some require turning. Most shops will do the milling operation and then next step the part to a lathe for the turning operation. CNC Swiss Screw machine technology has the ability to do both on the same machine. The live tooling on our machines allow us to cross drill, cross ream, cross tap, cross thread mill and off center face drill, even milling the face of the part all on one machine. The less handling of a part, the more savings we are able to pass on to our customer.
We love to partner with you to help make your project/part more machinable. Sometimes what looks good in CAD may not work out to be the most cost effective. We can partner with you as you build your design to keep costing down. Saving a few cents per piece in the prototype phase can translate to thousands of dollars once you reach production stage.
You know design, we know machining.
