Machining Service

Machining Service Family of Equipment Found in 3Diligent's 3Depot Technology Library

3Diligent machining services provide you a range of multi-axis solutions capable of achieving highly complex geometries and extremely tight tolerances.

Machining Service Process Overview

Machining, describes subtractive manufacturing processes. In CNC machining the process uses digital design files (CAD/CAM designs) as a guide for cutting 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.
