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 plastic and metal 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.
Spex has offered precision machining services for over 75 years. Our machine shop has a wide variety of manufacturing equipment and capabilities to machine high-precision parts.
We offer a wide range of precision CNC machining services, including:
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 facilities have a wide range of industrial-grade machining equipment. This includes:
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 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.
