CNC which is also called computer numerical controlled machining is a commonly used manufacturing process which uses automated, high-speed cutting tools to form designs from metal or plastic. At TEAM Rapid, we have standard CNC machines which include 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis milling machines, lathes, and routers. Our skilled machinists operate CNC machines by programming tool paths based on the geometry. A CAD model provide the geometry information. CNC machines cut any metal and rigid plastic with high precision and repeatability. CNC machining parts are suitable for many industries which include aerospace, medical, robotics, electronics and more. TEAM Rapid provides CNC MACHINING SERVICES quotes for more than 40 materials ranging from aluminum to titanium and engineered plastic such as Teflon and PEEK.
How does CNC machining work?
CNC machining uses subtractive processes. Feedstock is machined to its end form though subtracting and removing material. Holes are drilled, metal stock is shaped into new material with taper, diameters and shapes. For subtractive manufacturing, shapes are done by the subtraction of material. This contrasts with additive manufacturing which material are added, layered and deformed to make a shape. It also contrasts to injection molding which material is injected in a different state of matter by a mold and formed to a desired shape. CNC machining is versatile. CNC machining can be used with different materials which include metals, plastic, wood, foam, glass and other composite materials. Because of versatility, CNC machining is a popular manufacturing process in different industries which enable designer and engineers to produce products efficiently and precisely.

What industries use CNC MACHINING SERVICES?
CNC MACHINING SERVICES are widely used in a wide range of industries which include aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, robotics, agriculture and other fields which need metal parts frequently. Common CNC machining applications include medical devices, household goods, energy, oil and gas. CNC machining is one of the most widely used manufacturing processes in the world.
What is the difference between CNC machining and milling?
CNC milling is one of the styles of CNC machining. CNC machining is any process which a part is produce by a machine that is controlled by a computer. CNC milling, a cutting tool spins at high speeds and advances and across the piece to remove material. CNC turning, routing, plasma cutting, and water jetting are the other types of CNC machining. CNC turning and CNC milling can be combined to a machine because they can additive and subtractive operated, and produce more complex types of CNC machining.
How much do CNC MACHINING SERVICES cost?
When we receive a CAD file, we calculate the cost of machinable parts by machine learning algorithms. We are able to generate an exact quote instantly. Customers will always know the price up front. Just upload your CAD file to generate a quote simply. Our instant quotes are free. If you have made a new design iteration, just send load both order and new design into our quoting tool to compare the cost. This technology costs us less overhead and make the entire process less expensive, so, the price for our customers is lower.
How to reduce the cost for CNC machining parts?
The main factors impact the cost are machining time, start-up costs, materials costs and feature costs. To reduce the machining time, the best way is to design features which can be machined fast. For example, reducing cavity depth, increasing wall thickness, limiting thread length and designing holes with standard size. To reduce the material cost, the size of the blank required and machinability of the bulk material should be considered. Reducing the number part rotations or repositioning the finish can reduce the start up cost. Using tolerance when it is strictly necessary, removing text and letter, eliminating multiple surface finishes can lower the feature costs.
What are the tolerances for CNC machined parts?
l+0.005”/ -0.005” tolerances across most geometries in metals and ±0.010” for plastics. This will vary for large parts especially when holding flatness over large parts under heat treatment.
1. As milled finished requirements have minimum 125 surface finish for CNC parts.
2. 0.010” dimensional and 1 ° angular are the normal tolerance on for all fabricated parts.
3. No surface treatments such as anodize, bead blast, iridite and powder coat will be applied unless the treatment is paid.
How to choose the right CNC machining manufacturer to produce your parts?
Algorithms is a good way to identify the right CNC machining manufacturer for specific order. Manufacturer’s experience with similar projects, their proximity, and their capacity will allow you to balance customers’ requirement for quality, cost and speed better than before.
How to guarantee the quality of the CNC machining parts?
At TEAM Rapid, we take quality seriously. We have a rigorous supplier vetting process and just accept top supplier to make sure we continue to deliver CNC machining parts with highest quality to our customers.
