THE CNC ROUTING AND MACHINED PARTS PRODUCTION PROCESS SIMPLIFIED
THE FOLLOWING IS A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE LOGISTICS, WHEN USING OUR CNC ROUTING OR MACHINING SERVICES
Our part production process begins with a CAD (computer aided design) drawing. DXF and DWG are the most compatible. The CAD drawing gives us specifics of the parts you need. More often your drawing whether wood, plastic or metal should include 2D geometry. We use lines and curves to illustrate holes, dados, grooves, chamfers and taps etc. Your CAD drawing will then be imported into a CAM (computer aided manufacturing) software. You can see examples of how your drawing should be maid, if you desire an accurate quote by reading HOW WE QUOTE FOR CNC. If you need help with your drawing, we may be able to assist you.
Once the drawing is imported into the CAM software we can then create a toolpath and simulate how the part will be machined. At this time we will have an understanding of how much your job will cost and how much material will be required. We can receive material from any supplier or we can order the material to be used if you prefer. For your convenience we are equipped with a forklift and some storage space. There may be a deposit fee required depending of the type of service.
With our experience and the help of our software, the CNC (computer numerical control) machine will produce your parts exactly how you intended your plywood routing to be done or or your stainless steel parts to be machined. After your parts are made, we then protect them in a way that will prevent unnecessary damage while being transported, which is crucial if it's something like acrylic.
We understand that you are busy and part production is time sensitive. We work on a first-come/ first-served basis. Our normal lead time for new clients is around four days provided your drawings are ready to be machined. Without forgetting attention to detail, all work is done in a timely manner. File preparation may take time so, the sooner you need your machined parts, the sooner we should look at your drawings. We take precision part manufacturing serious and having all the facts about your wood or metal project will expedite the process.
