Consider a One-Stop-Shop for Fabrication and Custom Machining
Oct 16 2020
In-house custom machining means your fabricator can manufacture parts that don't already exist in order to meet your design and material specifications. Metal fabrication can often require many different stages and processes, and your design is unique. Not many companies can handle all aspects of a project like that on their own. Often, they will outsource the custom machining process, and that can sometimes lead to problems.
Your best option is to find a fabricator capable of tackling your custom machining needs in-house. Investing in CNC equipment and trained machinists represents their dedication to their customers’ needs and a commitment to proficiency, making them the right partner for your next project.
What is Custom Machining?
Custom machining can be used to make unique parts or even a common part that needs a special feature or requirement, like a custom adapter. These parts don't need to be standardized because they are being used for a specific piece.
Special equipment used for custom machining ensures quality parts can be made very quickly from their digital files in any quantity. CNC custom machining uses advanced equipment to mill, turn, grind, and punch for simple to advanced designs using a wide variety of metals. Machinists transform the raw material using advanced software to meet the specifications of the project. This is ideal for time sensitive projects.
Advantages of CNC custom machining include:
- Quick removal of large amounts of metal material
- Highly accurate and precise
- Scalable volumes from one to 100,000
- Fast turnaround
Fabrication and Custom Machining Under One Roof
Most fabrication companies outsource their machining to other shops. This brings on complications as you get more hands in the pot. You can experience communication breakdowns, there is a greater risk for errors, and it can lessen quality controls. Outsourcing custom machining could also result in delays on a time-lined project. Fabrication companies who are committed to streamlining and improving the process of fabricating and machining offer a combined approach under one roof to meet customer needs.
A company like this is a one-stop-shop for fabricating and custom building everything, including custom machining of components.
A unique machine & fabrication facility backed by a staff of engineers and custom machining talent can tackle any job.
Your entire project will be built in-house.
As a result, you can reap the benefits of in-house custom machining that include:
- Less Waste
- Quicker Turnaround
- Fewer Errors
- Lower Cost
In-house custom machining saves time and money and maximizes productivity. All of those advantages are then passed on to you.
