Machining Processes, Descriptions & Services We Offer

 

    • Screw Machining Process: 
      A Screw Machine is a type of lathe usually having a hollow spindle through which a bar can be fed to be machined into bolts, studs, and other screws or any small repetition turning work. The photo above illustrates types of parts made on a screw machine.
    • CNC Machining Process:    
      CNC Machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machining processes from turning, milling, grinding and threading by lathes to mills and routers.With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts. Short for “computer numerical control,” the CNC process runs in contrast to — and thereby supersedes — the limitations of manual control, where live operators are needed to prompt and guide the commands of machining tools via levers, buttons and wheels. To the onlooker, a CNC system might resemble a regular set of computer components, but the software programs and consoles employed in CNC machining distinguish it from all other forms of computation.
    • Swiss Screw Machining:    
      Swiss CNC and Screw Machining is the most sophisticated of all the machining processes.
      You can see from the above photo, Swiss Machines offer the ability to make very small, intricate parts and larger parts with extremely tight manufacturing tolerances and ultra fine finishes. Swiss Machines can utilize standard bar stock as raw material or with specialty machines, such as Escomatics, they can make parts from coiled wire at extremely fast speeds with very competitive pricing.
    • Centerless Grinding:          
      Centerless Grinding is another process that is a very important in machining operations. Centerless grinding is a machining process that uses abrasive cutting to remove material from a workpiece. Centerless grinding differs from centered grinding operations in that no spindle or fixture is used to locate and secure the workpiece; the workpiece is secured between two rotary grinding wheels, and the speed of their rotation relative to each other determines the rate at which material is removed. Centerless grinding is typically used in preference to other grinding processes for operations where many parts must be processed in a short time. It is generally used to create ultra-fine finishes, much finer than can be achieved with any of the other machining processes, even Swiss Machining.
