What Is CNC Metal Machining?
CNC metal machining is a manufacturing process that removes material from the metal workpiece to create a part with a CNC machining method.
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 Does RapidDone Run A CNC Metal Machining Project?
At RapidDone, when we start a metal machining project including prototype order or volume production, we follow the below three steps.
1.Design And Machinability Check
First, our engineering checks into the machinability of the drawings. We will also talk to the customer if there is any improved room regarding design and cost-saving issues.
Secondly, we release production orders for the internal manufacturing department.
The team follows the part drawings to finish the metal part on time based on the requiment.
3. Quality Check
Once the order is done, the metal parts shall be sent to our QA department. The QA team will have a quality check, offering both dimension check reports and cosmetic check reports.
What Are The Benefits Of The Metal CNC Machining Process?
CNC machining is so popular that is employed in almost all industries.
It offers multiple benefits, the key benefits are as below.
1. 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 process option for these precise metal part creation.
CNC machining is also a repeatable process, resulting in an identical part every time.
2. 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.
3. Popular For Prototyping
CNC machining is one of the most popular machining ways for the prototype field.
This process can build the prototyping that has a high consistency with 3D design. Also, it does not ask for a tool, so the delivery time can be as fast as days.
4. A Good Option For Low Volume Build
It does not require a mold that spends a lot of money and time, CNC machining is perfect for a small quantity build.
5. Be Suited For Mass Production Build
CNC machining is an automated manufacturing process with a high degree of repeatability. By considering the quick turnover and proper labor cost, CNC machining is a cost-efficient process for a lot of high-volume production orders.
What Are Secondary Processes?
The most common secondary processes for metal parts are deburring, polishing, painting, anodizing, silkscreen.
What Metal Materials For CNC Machining?
At RapidDone, our capability covers a full range of metal materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, alloy aluminum, carbon steel, alloy steel, copper, brass, and more.
Also, we can manufacture other metal parts that are made with other processes. Those parts include aluminum extrusion parts, casting parts, forging parts, investment casting parts, and metal fabrication parts.
Among them, aluminum material is the most wildly used one. This material is affordable. Also, it has good machinability that is suitable for most engineering projects.
How To Select Your Metal Material For CNC Machining Wisely?
They are so many metal materials that can be used for CNC machining. To find out the most proper engineering material for your project, 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 is to talk to an expert like RapidDone if you are not sure. Once we have your project requirement, we can help you to check and make a quick decision on material selection.
What The Most Common Metal Machining Processes At RapidDone?
At RapidDone, we offer a range of CNC machining services for metal material manufacturing.
It includes CNC milling, turning, plasma cutting, laser cutting, and wire EDM machining, each one machine different types of parts in different ways.
1. CNC Milling
Milling is the most common CNC processes. With this process, it is possible to create a special metal part with complex features.
2. CNC Turning
Turning, on the other hand, is mostly used to produce cylindrical parts that need to have uniform cuts on all sides.
3. CNC Plasma And Laser Cutting
This type of cutting is designed to cuts parts out of flat metal material 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 than laser cutting.
4. Wire EDM Machining
The wire EDM machining is a high-precision cutting progress that has several advantages.
First, it has a strong cutting capability that can cut high hardness material.
Next, since there is no physical contact between the wire and the metal raw material, it creates no burr.
Lastly, wire EDM can easily create special features such as tapered features and deep holes.
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 a solution here. The most popular types are as below.
