CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) Machining is an subtractive manufacturing process using the high-speed rotating cutting tool to precisely remove the unwanted material from a solid workpiece to create parts, the cutting tool is usually held in a spindle and moving along 3/4/5 axes to machine intended structures and features.
CNC machining works great with a variety of materials, including metals, plastics, composites and woods, the machined parts are widely used in many industries that require high precision, such as aerospace, defence, medical devices, automotive, etc. At Honkia, we offer 3, 4, 5 axes CNC machining with general tolerance ± 0.05-0.1 mm, we can pay special attention to meet the specific tighter tolerance demand.
One of the fast growing and wide applications of CNC machining today is Rapid Prototyping for its advantages of cheap and target materials, tight tolerance as well as usually cheap production cost, thus CNC milled prototypes deliver more reliable and economical feedback on mechanism, durability and strength verification.
Though a variety of Additive Manufacturing techniques are used for Rapid Prototyping, CNC is still the leading Rapid Prototyping process in China for material advantages and cheap labor here. No matter big or small size, simple or complex design, mechanical or appearance verification, CNC is the competitive option.
