What Is Precision Machining | Everything You Need To Know

If you are looking for a component manufacturer, it is likely that you have seen the term “precision CNC machining” crop up. As one of the country’s leading precision machining companies in the UK, we are experts when it comes to the manufacturing technique. In fact, with decades of experience under our belts, we have a fully equipped CNC machining plant allowing us to offer bespoke and competitive solutions for both small and large-scale projects. So, what is precision machining? 

What Is Precision Machining? 

Precision machining is a type of manufacturing which is used to produce hundreds of both small and large objects that we use daily. Every intricate component that makes up part of a larger object usually requires the work of a precision machinist. Precision CNC machining works by removing excess raw materials to result in a finished product. The process is highly accurate, and uses a range of different processes to achieve the highest levels of precision and quality every time. From CNC Milling to CNC turning, precision machining creates tools and components that are used in a wide range of sectors and applications. 

Using Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Although precision machining relies on specific types of machinery to establish accuracy, another important aspect of the manufacturing process is the use of Computer Aided Design. More commonly known as CAD, this process is aided by computers which are specially programmed to produce complex 3D outlines of the desired product – detailing exactly what will be needed to manufacture the tool or component. Using either plans from the client, or ones produced from one of our CNC engineers, we will use the computers to create incredibly accurate drawings which will be sent to the client as a blueprint of the final product. 

What Is CNC Machining Used To Make? 

It is very likely that most of the objects we use in day-to-day life have been precision machined in some way.  From everyday appliances and car parts, through to surgical instruments and aerospace components, almost every industry has benefited from this process. Not only can this type of manufacturing be used to accurately produce new concepts, but it can also be used to replicate those that are unable to be sourced pre-made anymore. For example, old car parts which were previously manufactured by hand can actually be replicated to the finest detail with the aid of CNC machining and CAD technology.
