CNC Machining

What are some benefits of CNC Machining?

There are many benefits when working with a local CNC Machine shop like quick turn times, cost, and consistency of parts. 

There is more key factors to consider when selecting CNC machining for your prototyping or low-volume production parts, for example:

Automotive prototyping and parts manufacturing


From single-one-off projects to low-volume production manufacturing, CNC machining offers many benefits and freedom around production quantities.

Design Complexity 

When it comes to design complexity, there are many design benefits such as tight tolerances and complex designs are easily achievable.

CNC Machining Cost Analysis

Continous machining.  Another benefit of CNC Machining is consistency. Because of continuous machining with 4 and 5 axis machines, human errors can be avoided. Plus, since there is no need for repositioning you can save on labor costs.

Benefits Of CNC Machining


Benfits of 3 Axis Machining

3 axis machining is the lowest cost type of CNC machining making it the perfect choice for smaller projects with less design complexity.

Since it only allows 3 axis points resets may be required if your parts have more complicated design needs.



Benfits of 5 Axis Machining

5 axis machining offers continuous machining. Which means no resets and no disruption in machining time.

5 axis machining offers 3 linear axes and 2  additional rotations on the y axis.

  • Creates flexibility in manufacturing.
  • Increases safety.
  • Boosts production volume.
  • Reduces setup-changeover time

Why Choose CNC Machining?

When used by skilled engineers, CNC machining can be a major benefit to your company projects. Because CNC machinery lets you program your machines to make the same cut repeatability, you get perfection and precision with each part.  

What Materials can be CNC machined?

We machine all types of materials but specialize in machining Aluminum, Magnesium, Zinc, and Plastic.


Are there good alternatives to CNC Machining?

At Precise Cast, we lookout for the best interest of your project. As a CNC machine shop and Non-ferrous Foundry, we have found, at times, that metal castings can be a very good alternative to CNC Machining. As metal castings can be more cost-effective, some parts can be metal cast then finished with machining, saving you additional machining costs. We specialize in Aluminum, Zinc, and Magnesium castings.
