3D Machining

We can machine most 3 dimensional shapes into a wide variety of materials to high tolerances using modern 3 and 5 axis CNC milling machines including simultaneous 5 axis machining to suit a wide variety of applications.

Using the latest CAD/CAM software we can take in customer files and produce highly accurate toolpaths to enable us to machine these complex shapes.

If the customer does not have a suitable file we can produce a model from a 2 dimensional drawing or ‘reverse engineer’ from a physical sample. The customer can also approve any change in design before any metal is cut.

The 3 dimensional shapes we machine are mainly used in the press tooling industry but can be adapted for any other component that requires machining.

We can inspect the surfaces that have been machined, and any other features, against the CAD model using our CNC Co-ordinate measuring machine and other measuring devices regularly calibrated in line with our ISO 9001 accreditation.
