Is my part suitable for CNC turning?
While there are many factors that go into determining whether a part can be most cost-effectively manufactured at a particular CNC turning center, here are some factors we will consider:
How many parts are needed in the short and long term? CNC turning centers are often suitable for producing prototypes in small batches.
What is the maximum outside diameter of the part? For 7-tool CNC turning centers, collet (bar-feedable) parts have a maximum outside diameter of 2.5. "
Parts over 2.5" OD are individually clamped, depending on volume, which may affect the price.
Parts with an outside diameter of less than 1.25" and medium to high production volumes may be better suited for a Swiss screw machine.
When it comes to machining parts, there are many variables. Pioneer Services can help you determine the best way to manufacture your part. Please contact us for assistance with your needs.
