CNC Machining

CNC (Computer numerical control) machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts. At Prototek manufacturing, CNC machined components are created for all CNC fabrication, allowing custom developed tools to be created.

With twenty-nine CNC machines, Prototek boasts extensive machining capabilities ready to handle any size job, quickly and efficiently with delivery of parts as fast as few days.

Advantages

CNC offers speed, production rate, accuracy and consistency in manufacturing. In addition, a variety of CNC machines offer the advantage of having multiple axes that can amend to difficult angles and help manage hard-to-cut materials to produce complicated shapes that would be nearly impossible to craft manually.
