Machining Service

Machining Service 

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 — a category of technologies and techniques — removes material from a workpiece using power-driven machine tools, usually according to a CAD/CAM file. Though metals and plastics are commonly machined, almost any material can be shaped by this manufacturing method.

CNC machining is highly precise and accurate, with .005" as a standard tolerance, and achievable tolerances to less than .001". 3Diligent ProdEX 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.

3Diligent has supported hundreds of companies in providing digital-manufacturing solutions for their most challenging project needs.
