CNC lathe production of metal precision parts advantages:

1. Numerical control molding

When starting a new plastic injection molding project, plastic prototype parts ensure that the product design is correct. For most plastic parts, nc machined prototypes will provide the exact testing required. CNC lathe precision part processing allows you to test the shape, fit, and function of injection molded parts without producing injection mold tools.

2. Small batch production

Because all you need is a proper CAD file, CNC lathe precision parts machining is great for small numbers of parts. Since there are no molds to create, you can save money and time by creating products directly on CNC machines. This makes CNC machining ideal for processes of less than 100 pieces (once more than 200, it becomes cheaper to produce parts by injection molding).

3. Fast turnaround time

Unlike in plastic injection molding, where molds are produced first, NC machining does not have this requirement. Once your files have been uploaded and approved, production can begin immediately. This greatly reduces the production time.

4. High quality parts

CNC lathe precision parts processing has many advantages. This is a more accurate process than manual processing, which provides precise repeatability. Because computers control machine movement, machine tools can move precisely simultaneously on axes, resulting in complex, three-dimensional shapes that are almost impossible to achieve by hand machining. These qualities make NC machining a good manufacturing process for jobs requiring high precision or high repeatability.
