elimold's cnc milling service

CNC Milling

CNC milling is a subtractive process using multi-axis machines and tools to remove materials from solid plastic and metal blocks into final parts with different geometries.

CNC Turning

CNC turning is a more efficient method of manufacturing round-shaped components from plastic and metal bars or tubes, such as shafts and worms. Combined with live tooling, milled geometries can be done in the meantime.

Advantages Of CNC Machining Services

One of the great advantages of CNC machining is that it works so well with so many different materials. These include mild and stainless steel, magnesium, brass, titanium, and even hard alloys such as Inconel. In addition, rigid engineering plastics can be machined, as well as carbon fiber. All of these options give you even more design freedom. Learn more about our standard materials.

No matter what material you use, it would help if you had absolute confidence that it conforms to your specifications and regulatory requirements. That’s why we have a best-in-class material testing laboratory. We use positive material identification (PMI) to verify all incoming stock and provide you with a full physical analysis. It’s the only way to be sure you get exactly the quality and performance you demand.

Finishes for CNC Machining Services

Cutter marks from the CNC Machining process will be present. 

Light sandpaper will remove the cutter marks left over from the CNC machining process but will leave behind a uniform scratch pattern from the sandpaper.

Applications of CNC Machining

Regardless of the manufacturing process used to create the end-use part, CNC machining is widely used by designers as a means of creating early and late-stage prototypes with short turnaround times. CNC prototyping allows designers to iterate ideas rapidly without tooling costs or waiting times. It is one of the best ways to create a concept model and function prototype to verify the design. Compared with other rapid prototyping methods, rapid CNC machining allows us to get tight-tolerance prototypes in real materials quickly.

CNC Prototyping is the preferred option to bring new design life among the other rapid prototyping methods unless the products are designed for 3D printing or other methods only.

CNC machining and EDM are the main methods to fabricate metal tooling for injection molding, high-pressure die casting, blow molding, roller molding, stamping, blending and so on.

High-speed CNC machines allow us to make high-precision copper patterns, mold cavities, mold bases, lifters and other mold components in the very short term. Moreover, with 5-axis milling machines, we can mill the deep pocket features in hours which take days to make by EDM in the past. That’s how we can speed up the mold making process significantly. Check out how rapid tooling works.

CNC machining has, for several years, been an integral part of aerospace manufacturing. That’s partly down to the extremely high precision of CNC machines, making the process suitable for safety-critical parts that will be used on aircraft.

Machinable aerospace parts include prototype engine components, fuel panels, landing gear components and engine mounts.

In the automotive industry, CNC machining is the most popular way to create concept cars and the function testing components, such as lighting, engine, transmission & steering system. It is also widely used to produce high-volume automotive parts and post-machining the die casting parts, investment casting parts.

It is especially useful for custom automotive parts, which may be required for repairs or limited-edition luxury vehicles since it is too costly to make a few parts by a molding process.

The machinability of many grades of titanium and stainless steel makes CNC machining a widely used process in healthcare. The process is regularly used to create implants, medical devices and surgical tools such as scalpels.

Tight tolerances and fast turnarounds are especially important for items such as titanium hip implants, which should be tailored to a patient’s anatomy.

Though injection molding dominates the production of simple plastic parts, many off-the-shelf goods are created with CNC machining. Household goods and appliances often contain machined parts, while items like enclosures and fixtures are also suitable for the process. Goods like sporting equipment may also be CNC machined. The CNC machining of metal and plastic components plays a big role in the electronics industry. Items such as laptop casings, connectors and sockets can all be reliably made with a CNC machine.

F.A.Q.

CNC machining is a process used for designing machine parts that may either be prototypes or ready to be put into mass production. As one of the most popular processes for custom manufacturing, CNC machining can handle irregular geometries of intricate parts and is even used to produce mass production of parts once a prototype is approved.

We support many file formats to ensure we always meet the requirements of our clients. This includes popular formats of .stp, .sldprt, and .psm/.par. Moreover, we work with our clients to the end, so they get their desired results designed to perfection. This is the value we stand for.

At Elimold, not only do we have 3 axis and 4 axis CNC milling, but we also have 5 axis(HAAS) CNC milling services. These services provide excellent results, except when you need finer quality results. We suggest 5-axis CNC milling service instead of 3 axis or 4 axis milling service. Moreover, our CNC turning service employs a variety of tools and state-of-the-art software that ensures your desired components are created with accuracy and precision.

CNC machining has many benefits, including accuracy, precision, fast turnaround, the versatility of solutions, the ability to work with many materials, and being an overall economic solution compared to other solutions present in the market.

The following four factors determine the cost of a CNC machined part. 1) time required for machining, 2) type of material selected, 3) the geometry of the part to be machined, and 4) the startup cost of the project. Besides the client’s stated requirements, we try to make sure we take a course of action that leads to low cost without compromising the quality of the product produced. To determine the cost of your project, you can request a free quote.

Almost any rigid solid can be machined, including mild and stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, magnesium, titanium, and many engineering plastics. Check out our list of frequently used materials.

Our standard tolerances are 0.05 microns, which is suitable for most commercial and industrial applications. Consult with us if you need closer tolerances for special projects.

At Elimold, we offer CNC milling (​​3-axis, 3+2-axis and 5-axis) and turning. Milled parts can be machined up to 2000 x 1500 x 200 mm (78.7 x 59.0 x 7.8 in.) for 3/3+2 axis CNC milling. For 5-axis milling, the maximum part size is 650 x 650 x 300 mm (25.5 x 25.5 x 11.8 in.). The maximum diameter for CNC turning is 431mm (17 in.), length 990 mm (39 in). Minimum part dimensions recommended are around 0.39 x 0.39 x 0.39 in. (10 x 10 x 10mm).The minimum for feature dimensions is 0.5 mm.
We are limited to a 1000 mm (39 in.) maximum size for parts on our platform. You can place the request through your account manager if you need higher dimensions.
