CNC Machining

State-of-the-art CNC department


CNC machining (Computer Numerical Control) is a manufacturing process used to create precise parts from various materials. CNC machining combines the use of computers and machine tools to perform automated machining operations. It begins with the creation of a computer-aided design model, which is then converted into digital instructions, called G-code. These instructions are loaded into a CNC machine tool, such as a lathe or milling machine. The machine tool uses the instructions to accurately position the axes and perform machining operations, such as drilling, milling, or turning. It gradually removes material to achieve the final shape of the part.

To meet the specific needs of our customers, our CNC department is constantly expanding. It is managed by a highly skilled and experienced team, and currently has 5 machines.

Advantages of CNC machining

  • High Precision: CNC machines are capable of producing parts with extremely high precision, offering tight tolerances and consistent quality. This ensures accurate and reliable results for each produced part.
  • Repeatability: Once the CNC program is created, it can be used to consistently and precisely produce a large number of identical parts. This allows for efficient and cost-effective mass production.
  • Flexibility: CNC machines can perform a wide variety of machining operations, such as milling, turning, drilling, threading, and more. They are versatile and suitable for different types of parts and materials.
  • Complexity of Parts: CNC machining is capable of producing complex parts with intricate geometric shapes, precise contours, and fine details. It is possible to create parts with diverse shapes and designs, meeting the most specific requirements.
