CNC Machining Industry

cnc machining industry

The CNC machining industry has been around since the 1950s when the first CNC machine was created. As time has evolved, the technology of machining metal has progressed and developed due to the demand for higher tolerance accuracy and innovative product design. Machines have the capabilities to perform 2-axis, 3-axis, 4-axis, and even 5-axis functionalities. Some of the processes of CNC machining include (VIP provides the bolded processes in-house):

In addition, there are other forms of metal fabrication that can be utilized besides machining metal in order to create other metalwork pieces. Some of these other processes include sand casting, die casting, mold casting, ablation casting, closed-die forging, deep drawing, extrusion, welding, and water jet.

There are several industries that have CNC machined parts. Below is a list of well-known industries that use CNC machining for their products or services (VIP caters to the bold industries):

  • Aerospace
  • Defense
  • Medical
  • Commercial
  • High technology
  • Computer / Electronic
  • Retail
  • Industrial
  • Architectural
  • Automobile
  • Screw

The CNC machining fabrication industry has grown from continuous product development within these industries. Many require close and high tolerance machined parts – especially in the aerospace industry which requires parts and components to have tolerances within the +/- .001 range.  This can only be achieved by CNC machining. Below is a list of the types of parts that are fabricated by CNC machining (VIP manufactures the part types in bold):

  • Brackets
  • Heat sinks
  • Munitions
  • Screws
  • Hardware
  • Engine blocks
  • Rotors
  • Valves
  • Sprockets
  • Sports equipment
  • Wheels
