Process Overview

Computer Numerical Control Machining (CNC Machining), describes subtractive manufacturing processes that take digital design files (CAD/CAM designs) and use them to cut away material from raw stock using defined tool paths.  CNC Machining is highly precise and accurate, with .005" as a standard tolerance, and achievable tolerances to less than .001".  3Diligent offers machining of thermoplastics such as Delrin Acetal and metals such as Stainless Steel and Titanium.   

CNC MILLING

 Using a rapidly turning blade to cut into a block of raw material.  The fundamental CNC Machining technology, capable of creating a wide variety of geometries with tight tolerances.

CNC TURNING

Rotating (turning) a rod of raw material and feeding a cutting tool into the rotating workpiece.   Optimal for parts that are symmetrical around an axis (e.g., parts with round exterior surfaces)

LASER CUTTING

Using a focused laser beam to burn through material.  Highly accurate, but best utilized on materials that do not reflect laser light or absorb heat.  Generally limited to metals.  Can create some distortion and burn marks from the heat.

WATERJET

The process of spraying abrasive material in a focused jet of water to rapidly remove material.  Generally suited for 2 Dimensional cutting, Waterjetting doesn't require special tooling and generally doesn't require post-processing.

EDM

Electro-Discharge Machining is capable of delivering tremendous precision on parts made of electrically conductive materials
