What is CNC metal machining?
CNC metal machining is a manufacturing progress that removing material from the metal workpiece and create a part with a CNC machine.
CNC machining is a versatile manufacturing process that is compatible with a wide range of materials including metal, plastic, wood, and more.
However, the metal material is so popular that it is virtually synonymous with CNC machining when people talk about CNC machining.
How do Rapiddone run a CNC Metal Machining project?
When we start a metal machining project, not match it is a single prototype or volume production, we follow the below steps.
Firstly, our engineering will check into the design drawing regarding machinability. We will talk to the customer if there is any improved room regarding design and cost-saving.
Secondly, prepare the raw material based on the design. Aluminum is the most popular metal material.
Thirdly, we run it into the CNC machining progress and get the metal part out with this step.
Lastly, the metal parts shall be sent to our QA department. The QA team will have a quality check including a dimension check and cosmetic check.
What are the Benefits of our metal CNC machining services?
CNC machining offers multiple benefits. They are so popular that are employed in almost all the industries, see the key benefits as below.
Be precise and repeatable
CNC machines are precise, fine machining can produce tolerances as tight as 0.001”. Many metal parts require a tight tolerance such as steel automotive parts, steel motor parts, aluminum wheel parts, CNC machining is the first progress option.
CNC machining is also repeatable progress, resulting in an identical part every time.
Reduced Chances of making errors
CNC machines are automated and run by computerized programs, this leads to less chance of making errors from the operator and brings the cost down.
Popular for Prototyping
Prototyping progress is very important, it offers a real physical sample to the design engineer. With prototyping, engineers can test the form, fit, and function before committing to a final design, this helps them to avoid unnecessary changes before mass production.
Prototyping requires the physical part has a high consistency with 3D design and be created at a very fast turn-around.
Coincidently, CNC machining perfectly fulfills both requirements. Therefore, CNC machining is the most popular machining way for the prototype field.
A good option for low volume Build
Since it does not require a mold that spends money and time, CNC machining is perfect for a small quantity build, say 100sets. At RapidDone, the metal parts can be produced as fast as a few days.
Be suited For Mass Production Build
CNC machining is an automated manufacturing process with a high degree of repeatability. Due to this, your metal product from one same machining progress will be consistent with very tight tolerances. By considering the quick turnover and proper labor cost, CNC machining is a cost-efficient process for high-volume production builds.
What metal materials for CNC machining?
At RapidDone, our ability covers a full range of engineering metal material, including stainless steel, aluminum, alloy aluminum, carbon steel, alloy steel, copper, brass, and more.
Besides, we also are able to manufacture other metal parts that are made with other processes using other machinery. Those parts include aluminum Extrusion parts, casting parts, forging parts, Investment casting parts, and other metal fabrication parts.
Among them, aluminum material is the most wildly used one, because it is affordable and easy to be machined.
Aluminum’s good machinability includes excellent strength-to-weight ratio and the vast array of alloy that is suitable for most machining projects.
What are Secondary Processes?
The most common secondary processes for metal parts are deburring, polishing, painting, anodizing, silkscreen.
How to select your metal material for CNC machining wisely?
They are so many metal materials that can be used for the CNC machining. To find out the most proper engineering material for your prototyping or production, we suggest to consider the below factors:
√ Make sure you do need a metal with exceptional mechanical properties that meet your design, like hardness, strength, weldability, thermal conductivity, and more.
√ Be sure the selected material does not exceed the cost budget.
√ Choose the one with better machinability.
Of course, the best way to determine the most suitable machining material is to talk to an expert like RapidDone. Once we have your project information, we can help you to check all the details and make a quick decision regarding material selection and other machining issues.
What the most common Metal machining Processes are there?
At RapidDone, we offer a range of CNC machining services for metal material manufacturing. It includes CNC milling, CNC turning, CNC plasma cutting, CNC laser cutting, and CNC wire EDM machining, each with its functionality to machine different types of parts in different ways.
CNC milling is the most common CNC processes. With this process, it is possible to create a special metal part with complex features.
CNC turning, on the other hand, it is mostly used to produce cylindrical parts that need to have uniform cuts on all sides.
CNC plasma and laser cutting
This type of cutting is designed to cuts parts out of flat metal material with big sizes such as aluminum sheets or metal sheet boards. You can do the same job with the CNC milling machining but cutting efficiency is much lower compared with laser cutting.
CNC wire EDM machining
The wire EDM machining is a high-precision cutting progress which has several advantages.
First, it has a strong cutting capability, that makes it to be one the best option for high hardness material cutting.
Next, since there is no physical contact between the wire and the metal part, no burr is created after machining.
Lastly, some special features are hard to create like the tapered features or deep holes for milling progress, but it is easy for wire EDM machining.
What kind of metal material machining service RapidDone can offer?
With our strong machining capability, RapidDone can cut any metal material for your projects. Up to now, we have the machining experience for more than 50 types of metal material, no matter how special your material here, you can find it here. The most popular types are as below.
