Multi-Spindle Screw Machining

Elimold has extensive screw machining experience working with a wide range of materials, finishes, tolerances and complex features, providing solutions and fast turnaround for even the toughest screw machining projects. If you need screw machining, Elimold is the source for quality, price and delivery you need.

Our Service

Elimold has a wide variety of multi-axis screw machining centers to meet your needs for complex or simple parts. We machine steel, stainless steel, brass and aluminum parts.
We typically hold screw machines to tolerances that would require CNC machining or secondary operations, saving you time and money.
Our screw machines are supported by our complete toolmaking department, which features 5-axis CNC tool grinders and wire-cut EDM machines. This reduces lead times for new parts and revision changes, increases creativity, improves productivity, reduces tolerances, improves quality and reduces costs.
With a diverse range of machining sizes, we produce materials ranging from 1/4″ to 2-3/4″ in diameter. With the flexibility of 6 and 8 axes, we can machine most features on one machine, minimizing costs and cycle times while lowering your product price.
Our profiles include round, hexagonal and square. The material range includes cold drawn carbon steel, alloys, stainless steel, duplex, aluminum, brass, cast iron and selected polymers.
We have a fully stocked on-site maintenance and spare parts department. This gives us the flexibility to manage changeovers and setups on-site in short timeframes, not production shifts or days.
With a comprehensive inventory of accessories, we are able to expertly roll and cut straight, pipe, tapered, pan and transition threads in both imperial and metric sizes, as well as industry specific assortments in Classes 75, 100 and 150; Euro, hot rolled, DSI, 8 round and more. Our production processes include fluting, chamfering, tapping, reaming, knurling and stamping or engraving code/serial number part identification.
Whether you need 500 pieces for an unexpected customer request or 1,000,000 pieces for a project supply, our facility can deliver the right part on time and within your desired lead time.

Our Process: From Barstock to Precision Parts

At Elimold, we are proud to be one of the few contract manufacturers with both single- and multi-axis CAM-operated screw machines. Our single-axis machines can process barstock up to 1-5/8” in diameter, while our multi-axis machines can process barstock up to 2-1/4” in diameter.

Our screw machining process is a testament to efficiency. Here is a quick rundown of how we turn barstock into precision parts with multi-axis screw machining:

  • Material Loading. Barstock is carefully loaded into the material magazine and then fed into the work chuck, ready for machining.
  • Six stations with up to 18 different tools in the cut. Six stations, one for each spindle, can handle up to three machining operations per station.
  • Rotate and Repeat. After each cycle of operation, the material rotates the workpiece to the next station, and the process repeats. When the workpiece rotates through all six positions, the finished part drops.
  • Optimizing Cycle Times. We optimize cycle times to ensure that the station that requires the longest run time sets the pace for the entire process.

Multi-Spindle CNC Screw Machining Advantages

  • The most productive equipment. With a selection anchored by time-honored Acme and Davenport multi-spindle screw machines (complete equipment list), Elimold is geared up for high volume component orders, even if the quantity is in the millions
  • Consistently accurate results. Every machine is supported by Elimold’s own in-house tooling capability, allowing us to maintain uncompromising accuracy at any volume level. Each machine’s quick-change tooling is monitored by a proprietary computerized interface to monitor tool wear, maintain peak productivity and maximize quality.

Materials

At Elimold, we understand that the choice of materials is critical in precision component manufacturing. We offer versatility in material selection, including:

  • Brass. Lead-free, known for its corrosion resistance and malleability.
  • Aluminum. Lightweight and highly corrosion-resistant.
  • Bronze: Offers excellent wear resistance.
  • Copper: Conducive to electricity.
  • Steel: Strong and durable.
  • Stainless Steel: Combines corrosion resistance with strength.
