Machining America Today..........Machining the World Tomorrow

CNC Machining

CNC machining is a process used in manufacturing that involves the use of computers to control machine tools. The most common machine shop tools that can be controlled in this manner are lathes and milling machines. CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control. The machine tool reads the part program that can either be programmed at the machine or more typically offline using CAD and CAM software programs.
Software packages we use to create machine programs:
Computer Aided Design (CAD) - Solidworks®
Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) - Mastercam®

CNC Turning

CNC turning typically involves machining parts that are round in shape such as a washer Machining America Inc CNC lathes take turning several steps further. With live tooling, a Y axis, and a sub spindle Machining America Inc has the ability to machine parts on our lathes that would normally be restricted to run on a milling machine. Typical materials we machine on our lathes are stainless steel, brass, aluminum, phenolic, and many types of plastics including UHMW, Teflon™, ABS, PET, and Acetal.

CNC Milling

At Machining America Inc we have 2 different types of milling machines. The first type is the typical 3 axis vertical milling machines. The spindle is oriented perpendicular to the floor and has travels in the X, Y, and Z directions. The second type of milling machine is what is commonly known as a horizontal. The spindle is oriented parallel to the floor and has travels in the X, Y, and Z directions plus a full fourth axis known as the B axis. A couple of the benefits of a horizontal machining center include easy chip evacuation, multiple sides of a part can be machined in a single set up, and high production can be achieved utilizing the dual pallet system.
