CNC Milling Services

CNC milling services

CNC milling services belong to our list of capabilities. The manufacturing method uses a rotating cutting tool for removing metal chips. A continuous process will ensure a part according to your input.

While the rotating cutting head may seem similar to drilling, the two are not the same. Drilling helps you make holes axially. Mills have the capacity to move laterally as well.

The are various milling bits available. Some milling cutters are for axial cutting, others lateral or a mix of both. Axial cutting requires teeth on the tip of the head. Lateral cutting, on the other hand, means that the cutting teeth have to be on the outer face of the cutter.

Fractory has over 25 pre-vetted manufacturing partners with state-of-the-art CNC machines. Also, 5-axis milling centers are available. Some of the stations also have live tooling capabilities to minimize turnaround times. Losing the necessity for changing tools is especially important with larger batches, as it can have a significant effect on the final price per part.

CNC Lathe Services

CNC lathe services

CNC turning is a method for producing symmetrical cylindrical parts. A simple example is a shaft. Keyways and other non-symmetric cutouts can be added later with another operation.

CNC lathes spin the metal part while the cutting tool can move axially in 2 directions – along the side of the part as well as towards it.

Therefore, the system spins the part while bringing the cutting tool into contact with the workpiece as necessary. This results in cut off bits of swarf. The continuous operation creates the final part.

Fractory can offer CNC turning services for a large number of different materials. These include carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, copper alloys, etc. Using a CNC lathe service is suitable for both prototyping as well as batch production.

Our capabilities include sliding head lathes which can bring down the turnaround times as much as 2 times. Traditional fixed head CNC machines cannot compete with the automated systems, especially with larger quantities.

Precision engineering with Fractory is made simple because we can offer a wide range of capabilities from various manufacturing partners.

CNC Machining FAQ

Are 5-axis CNC milling machines available?

Yes, many of our pre-vetted manufacturing partners have 5-axis CNC machines.

Are turning and milling available for wood and plastics?

The material selection includes metals and plastics, including steel, stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, PE, POM, etc. Wood is not currently available but we are looking to add more materials in the future.

What is the quality of the machined parts?

All our manufacturing partners have the ISO 9001 certificate that ensures their work conforms to certain quality standards. If specific tolerances are required, please attach a drawing with relevant information.
