CNC Machining

Computer numerical control (CNC) machining is an umbrella term for the subtractive manufacturing processes that use computer software to direct the operation of tooling and equipment. CNC can be integrated into several types of machining equipment, ranging from lathes and mills to grinders and routers, to simplify and streamline the manufacturing process. The precision and efficiency afforded by CNC machining often eliminate the need for manual machining or additional processing operations.

As a leader in the offshore metal manufacturing industry, Mardek, LLC has the knowledge and tools necessary to supply precision machined metal and plastic components made to the highest quality standards and the most stringent specifications. Over the years, we have built numerous overseas business relationships with highly qualified and vetted manufacturers, which allows us to choose the perfect CNC technology for the part, precision, and production capabilities you need.

CNC Milling Machines

CNC milling machines use computer programming technology to direct multi-point rotary cutters along a workpiece. As the cutting tool moves across the surface of the workpiece, it shaves or cuts off material along different angles to shape the part. There are many different types of milling machines available, based on the number of cutting angles they accommodate.

3-Axis Milling Machines

The 3-axis milling machine is the most commonly used in parts production and is typically used to produce edges, slots, and holes. The machine cuts on three different axes—X, Y, and Z. These axes allow the material to be moved up and down, side to side, and back and forth.

4-Axis Milling Machines

A 4-axis milling machine is similar to a 3-axis one in that it accommodates motion along the XYZ axes. However, these machines also allow for movement around the A axis (i.e., rotation around the X axis). With the additional movement capabilities, the 4-Axis milling machine can produce more complex designs and shapes.

5-Axis Milling Machines

Much like the 4-axis machine, the 5-axis milling machine moves on the X, Y, and Z axes and rotates around the A axis. It also adds a second rotary axis (B) along the Y axis. This type of milling machine allows for greater versatility and flexibility in the parts manufacturing process.

CNC Lathes

A CNC lathe rotates the workpiece along one axis and manipulates it against a stationary tool to achieve the desired shape through turning, cutting, or sanding. The use of CNC technology allows this process to be automated for greater accuracy and higher productivity.

Swiss Screw Machines

Swiss screw machines were originally created for the production of small and intricate Swiss watch components. The machine has since been adapted for industrial use for the shaping and detailing of small-scale complex components. By integrating CNC technology into Swiss screw machines, manufacturers can achieve up to 11 axes of motion during machining operations for exceptional precision and detail.

Benefits of CNC Machining

Compared to manual manufacturing processes, CNC machining offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Greater precision and consistency in parts produced
  • Faster production speeds and quicker turnaround
  • Broader part design versatility
  • Higher material utilization (i.e., less material waste)
  • Lower maintenance (and related cost) requirements
  • Superior production scalability
