Why, What and When You Should Choose Custom Machining
At Creatingway, we strive to deliver custom machined prototypes and parts. This is according to the patient’s requirements. There are two top working principles that we live by. These are namely promptness and accuracy. We intend to support all your production needs right from start to finish. Here is further insight into why, what and when regarding custom machining. We will also delve into the types of custom machining services we offer at Creatingway.
What is Custom Machining Service?
It refers to custom machining services that meet a client’s specific need for parts. Lately, ordering custom parts from an online machine shop has been trending. This is owing to the high-speed internet network, rapid CAD modeling, and global shipping.
When and Why Is Custom Machining Helpful?
Here are a few instances when and why custom machining becomes the ideal process for your project.
- CNC machining uses CAD files that our expert designers create. These CAD files convert data into a program using the software. Since we create the CAD files, we can tailor them to suit any of our client’s needs.
- We can work on a wide array of materials when CNC machining. Examples include metals and plastics. This enables us to meet custom machining. Moreover, so many post-finishing methods are applicable that it is somewhat hard to choose. The good thing with this is that our clients have a wider selection choice.
- It reduces lead times. Time is a scarce resource that often translates to money. The faster we produce a custom part, the faster it gets to the market. In light of this, we are pushing towards embracing the online quote system. It helps us save a lot of time and get the custom-machined part to the client quickly.
- It lacks a minimum order quantity limit. Unlike, injection molding, we can use CNC machining to produce one part. This meets custom machining.
Examples of Custom Machining Methods
There are several reasons clients opt for custom machining of parts. One such case is if the part does not have a set standard. Another example of parts with ideal features and complex structures. At Creatingway, we offer an array of methods to meet custom machining. These are namely:
- CNC turning
- CNC milling
- EDM or Wire EDM
We can use CNC turning and CNC milling to apply many features. Custom machining services allow us to impart:
- Inner holes
- Complex rotary shapes
- Bite flower
However, the methods are not ideal for complex structures. Examples include a die, fixed plate, unloading plate, concave die, punch narrow slot, and micro-hole slot. We ideally use EDM when custom machining parts with big radii and the corners. This is since it can clear the radii and keep 90 degrees. Not only does custom machining offer uniqueness, but also top-notch parts. We even have 5-axis CNC machines to deal with many-sided parts that have tight tolerances.
What Custom Machining Services Do We Offer?
At Creatingway, we offer one-stop custom machining services. We can use custom parts to check for its visual appeal during the early stages. In addition, we offer low-volume custom machining services. This supports the product development in the latter stages before mass production.
Custom Prototype Machining Services
Several basic steps make up prototype development. We first start with a proof of concept and then move on to engineering validation. Afterward, we can proceed to design validation, production validation, and finally mass production.
Most of our clients have great design ideas and want to accompany them with a model. This adds to their appeal when lobbying investors to place a stake in their ideas. Prototyping is the ideal way for them to gain more support. There exist different classes of prototypes. Examples include visual, functional, proof of concept, and engineering prototypes. Custom machining can cater for all services in the entire product development process. Moreover, it allows for continuous improvement until you make the final decision.
Custom Low Volume Machining Services
The final product development stage is mass production. This means that we cannot alter the product’s final design features. Moreover, real tooling can now begin. Alas, if there are any design flaws, then this translates to high losses. We offer low volume custom machining that bridges the gap between production and prototype.
It is popular since it is cheap, as we do not use costly tooling. In addition, it has a quick turn around and its size is enough to evaluate the design and potential. This reassures the client to proceed to mass production. Moreover, its quality is the same as mass production parts. This can allow the client to use it to gain customer feedback before releasing the actual product. For any inquiries or quotes regarding custom machining, contact us now.
