CNC Machining: The Conventional Complement

    What Is CNC Machining?

    CNC Machining is a subtractive manufacturing method that uses cutting tools to remove material from a block of raw material or a pre-existing part.

    Our capacity allows us to create CNC machined parts with unrivaled speed, and our experienced engineers ensure the highest standards with cutting edge software and equipment.

    Our CNC Machining Capacity Is Dependable

    We operate more than 20 state-of-the-art machining centers with a wide variety of CNC equipment such as single axis lathes, which are ideal for executing round parts such as nozzles, engine components and thread shafts.

    Our CNC machining centers also utilize cutting edge 5-axis machines, which substantially reduce turnaround time by eliminating intermediate setups and enabling undercuts and off-axis features.

    CNC Machining Is Complementary Technology

    We also utilize CNC Machining as a valuable secondary operation for our 3D printed parts that require boring, drilling, face milling or other precision machining for enhancing features.

    We are dedicated to providing the fastest CNC machining in the industry, with projects programmed and started the same day as order.

    CNC Frequently Asked Questions

    How large a part can your CNC machines accommodate?

    We offer cutting edge CNC machining with single cut envelopes up to 84”, 40”, 36”. but that’s not a limit on the size of your project.

    One advantage of partnering with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing is that we have expertise in breaking up complex designs into multiple components, which we can later assemble.

    What are your standard tolerances for CNC machined parts?

    Standard tolerances for CNC machined parts are +/- 0.005” or 0.001”/”, whichever is greater. In some circumstances, tighter tolerances can be achieved depending on part design.
