Precision Machining Services_

Precision machining uses advanced computer-controlled equipment to manufacture parts and components that require precise measurements. Different types of CNC (computer numerical control) machines can cut and form metal and plastic parts with very tight tolerances and high repeatability.

General CNC machining services offer fairly precise outputs already, precision CNC machining maintains much tighter tolerance standards, meaning more complex part designs can be machined with a lower tolerance for error. This is needed for certain parts used in the aerospace, defense, and medical industries, where tiny fractions of an inch matter.

Precision machining equipment

Precision machining requires different types of machines. The machining equipment used varies depending on the material and style of the part, the measurements and tolerance requirements, and the quantity of parts needed. 

Our precision machine shop has a wide range of industrial-grade machining equipment. This includes:

  • CNC mills
  • CNC lathes
  • Swiss screw machines
  • Multi-Spindle CNC machines
  • Precision grinders
  • And more.
Our team of machinists work together with engineers and our quality assurance team to ensure we use the most efficient machining processes to meet our your unique needs.

Precision machining available materials

Most CNC machines can work with any type of material. Even some wood and plastic materials are cut with CNC machines. We primarily use metals and metal alloys. There are 1,000s of different metal alloys available, and each has advantages and disadvantages. 

Certain metals are more difficult to machine because they require more durable cutting tools, and the cutting tools need to be changed more often due to wear. That increases the cost and time required to machine large quantities of complex parts. 

Other metals are easier and quicker to machine, and lend themselves better to complex designs.

Spex commonly uses Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Copper, Nickel, and Titanium alloys.

Precision machining FAQs

CNC machining is used across industries. It’s most common in aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, robotics, manufacturing, and other industries that use large quantities of identical metal parts. It’s also used for medical devices, energy, oil and gas, and other consumer applications. CNC machining is one of the most common manufacturing processes in the world.

Turnaround times vary based on the complexity and volume of your project. We pride ourselves on timely deliveries, and our team can provide a more accurate timeline once they review the project details.

There’s a detailed setup process to manufacture new parts, so our machine shop focuses on larger quantities, typically tens of thousands. The minimum order requirements vary depending on your specific part design. Our machine shop has limitless capabilities, and no maximum order limitations.

Yes. We offer rapid prototyping using either CNC machining or 3D printing– depending on your prototype requirements.
