CNC machining services for foam, plastic, non-ferrous metal prototypes, and production parts.
What is CNC Milling?
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Milling and Machining, is a subtractive machining process that uses computer-controlled tools that utilize bits such as ball end mills, flat end mills and single flutes to remove material from a solid block of material.
This process is suitable for creating products from a wide range of materials including non-ferrous metals, plastic, glass, wood, and various types of foam.
At Scott System, we offer fast and efficient CNC milling services for rapid production and prototyping.
Thanks to our 5-axis milling process, we can use CAD/CAM subtractive manufacturing techniques in the production process.
The term “5-axis” refers to the ability of CNC machine to move a part or tool found on different CNC axes as required. The 5 axis machines we operate are more complex than the 3 axis machines other shops deploy.
This means that bulk material is placed on the machine and the router is able to remove the materials in two steps.
While some machines, like the 3-axis, can move the center in two directions (X and Y), while the tool moves up and down (Z), the 5-axis CNC machining centers can rotate on two rotary axes (A and B), helping the end mill approach the part in all directions.
Quality is of the utmost importance when it comes to CNC milling, which is why we employ a built-in system of checks and balances within our design and manufacturing processes.
CNC Milling: Cut-To-Size
Scott System uses CAM software to control the CNC machine, which allows us to develop and produce parts of all shapes and sizes.
