Machining is a process where you cut, drill, mill or turn materials away to form the desired component. The primary purpose of processing is to convert raw or recycled material into beneficial components.
It is often metals such as iron, copper, brass and aluminum that are processed, but you can also process in different types of plastic.
Various CNC Machines
For machining materials machine shops often use CNC machines, such as CNC turning, milling and cutting depending on what kind of job you need done.
The different machines are available from less advanced 3 axis to more advanced with 4 and 5 axis. The new machines often have a high tolerance value of +/- 0.127 mm or 0.005” (The thickness of a human hair is 0.05 mm or 0.002″)
