3Diligent Provides a Wide Variety of CNC Machining Service Options for Demanding Applications
3Diligent CNC machining services provide you a range of multi-axis solutions capable of achieving highly complex geometries and extremely tight tolerances.
CNC Machining 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 metals including tungsten, vanadium, Inconel, HAYNES, titanium, alloy steel, aluminum, brass, carbon steel, niobium, copper, Hastalloy, stainless steel, tantalum, titanium, and tool steel
3Diligent offers machining of other materials including Zirconium, Wood, Wax, Ren Board, Teflon (PTFE), Urethane, and TPU.
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.
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).
Using a focused laser beam to burn through the material. Highly accurate, but best utilized on materials that do not reflect laser light or absorb heat. Generally limited to metals. It can create some distortion and burn marks from the heat.
The process of spraying abrasive material in a focused jet of water to rapidly remove material. Generally suited for 2D cutting, Waterjetting doesn't require special tooling and generally doesn't require post-processing.
