Heavy Machining in Wisconsin

A machine shop performs a variety of fabrication activities, including cutting, milling, turning, welding, and fabrication. Machine shops require specialized tools and equipment, which they use to create parts from a wide range of metal materials

Each machining process requires different tools and skill sets, so skilled machinists undergo specialized training and certifications to operate the equipment within a machine shop. In addition, they must have a thorough understanding of their customer’s operation, in order to ensure that the final product or component will suit the needs of the intended application. In addition, computer numerical control (CNC) technology has automated many machining processes to provide superior accuracy and control during production.

CNC Machining

CNC machining uses advanced software to guide cutting and milling tools. Machining is a subtractive manufacturing method, which means material is removed from a metal or plastic base material or substrate to shape a piece of stock material in accordance with instructions derived from a digital design file. These computer-controlled systems can produce even highly complex and large components within extremely tight tolerances with a high rate of repeatability. close up of cnc machining in factory workshop
