If you are unfamiliar with some of the industry terms surrounding precision machining services, here are answers to a few basic questions to get you started.
What is meant by machining process?
Machining is the broad term used to describe removal of material from a workpiece, it covers several processes, which we usually divide into the following categories: Cutting, generally involving single-point or multipoint cutting tools, each with a clearly defined geometry. Abrasive processes, such as grinding.
What is a machined part?
Machining is any of various processes in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process.
What is high precision machining?
Precision Machining. Precision machining involves removing material from a compartmental unit to a highly tolerable substance. Tolerance is dependent upon the type of machine that is used. Precision machinery is used to reach the highest tolerance to the smallest measurable degree.
What are precision parts?
Precision engineering is a subdiscipline of electrical engineering, software engineering, electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, and optical engineering concerned with designing machines, fixtures, and other structures that have exceptionally high tolerances, are repeatable, and are stable over time.
What is CNC precision machining?
CNC Machining is a process used in the manufacturing sector that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. Tools that can be controlled in this manner include lathes, mills, routers and grinders. The CNC in CNC Machining stands for Computer Numerical Control.
What is meant by CNC machine?
CNC means Computer Numerical Control. This means a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter.
What is the definition of the manufacturing process?
Manufacturing processes are the steps through which raw materials are transformed into a final product. The manufacturing process begins with the creation of the materials from which the design is made. These materials are then modified through manufacturing processes to become the required part.
