Types of CNC Machines

February 16, 2022

Small components require precision accuracy to create. That’s why we combine a highly trained team with the best equipment to get the job done right. It’s not ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the machining process. Here’s a small glimpse at the range of CNC machines used in the industry:


One of the most common types of CNC machines, milling CNC’s have built-in drilling and cutting tools. Materials are placed inside the machine and the computer component directs the tools to drill or cut according to a preprogrammed set of instructions.


With fewer axes than the CNC milling machine, a CNC lathe is shorter and more compact. What sets these machines apart is their ability to turn materials during operation.


When you are looking for mass production, a CNC drilling machine may be the right solution. While their multi-function machining centre makes them efficient, the greatest sink time for this machinery comes with tool changes. That means for speed, the variation of hole diameter must be reduced.


This precision performance tool uses a rotating wheel to cut metal. You can often find grinding machines in applications such as camshafts, ball bearings, transmission shafts, and other applications that call for pinpoint accuracy.
