Small and large industries that rely on machined parts require precise milling, particularly in these modern times when consumers have zero tolerance for errors. Conventional means of producing parts, including with metal dies or templates, are known as numerical control or NC, and have traditionally been carried out under the control of a machinist. However, with modern technology, milling has more and more fallen under the control of computers, and as such has been rechristened computer numerical control or CNC.
CNC programming services have definite benefits over the standard NC operation, especially when it comes to matters of parts precision. Although the older method produced components that met application requirements, it took longer to produce the same results. The NC process relied on a manually created punched tape that depended on accurate data entry. If a mistake was made, the end product would be unsatisfactory. Small inaccuracies of less than a millimeter could result in a whole line being thrown out, resulting in massive revenue lost in materials and work hours.
CNC programming services have rendered this earlier technology obsolete, ushering in a financially expedient system with considerably less waste production. Instead of punch tape and clunky machine readers, CNC programming offers high-tech and precise software, eliminates the ratio of error.
Cad Crowd’s CNC programming services incorporate the latest advancements so that designs are made to exacting specifications. Cad Crowd offers rapid and precise CNC machining, without lags or downtime.
Cad Crowd’s machining services aren’t only for existing businesses - they’re also for those developing new ideas through prototypes. Cad Crowd has a team of engineers in practically every field so untested concepts are fully evaluated and assessed before any product development begins. Cad Crowd’s full-service operation has everything you need, all in one place!
CNC machining services cover a broad spectrum including grinding, lathing, routing and bending and are used extensively in the automotive industry. Cad Crowd’s CNC programming services meet all template production requirements by removing metal from raw material to make precision parts like shafts and gears, or punching and bending steel plates for openings to meet exacting specifications. Although metal is the most common material used by CNC machining services, wood is also a possible component.
To turn your project into a reality, Cad Crowd’s skilled CNC programming personnel first turn a concept into detailed 2D technical drawings. We collect important data points, like machining speeds, in order to offer optimal results. Any refinements in the process can be done with a computer rather than through trial and error using materials, which produces waste and isn’t cost-efficient. Prior to any machining, the proper cutting tools must be chosen for the type of material being used.
The final machining code is saved and can be taken by a client to a CNC machining business. Cad Crowd can also produce a template for an easy reference. We can then refer our clients to a number of reputable CNC machining businesses that take a project to the final step of completion.
