How to Decrease Cost and Increase Quality in Part Design

The ability to decrease the costs of manufacturing while increasing the quality of a part might seem to be contradictory goals. However, by following a few simple techniques in today’s manufacturing environment, these goals are brought closer together. It is important to examine three decision making phases prior to the removal of any material. These phases are Evaluation, Selection and Implementation. Evaluation: Evaluation is the examination of the designs and drawings of parts prior to… Read more

5 Tips on Material Selection for a CNC Machined Component

Modern CNC Machining allows for high precision, high speed production of specialty parts for nearly any use or application. A very flexible approach to manufacturing, it can cut and form hundreds of different metallic and polymer materials without sacrificing design complexity. Most importantly, CNC Machining allows for amazingly tight tolerances on part dimensions, a characteristic that sets it apart from other manufacturing approaches. If you’re considering a CNC Machining you will be no doubt satisfied by… Read more

How CNC Machining Maximizes Productivity

Computer numerical control (CNC) machining is rapidly becoming the preferred method of producing machined parts in today’s workplace. By computerizing and automating the functions of many basic production tools (such as lathes, drills, cutters, etc.), manufacturers are able to take advantage of savings in time and costs of labor and materials, which can be passed along to their customers. How does this modern miracle perform its wizardry? Let’s review some of the more important details…. Read more

The Devil is in the Details—The Significance of Tight Tolerances

If you have ever tried to build anything or put parts together (think way back to those model making days of your youth) you’ll remember a time when it just didn’t work. The parts wouldn’t go together no matter how hard you tried. Eventually, you either gave up or just made the parts fit. In manufacturing, we can’t take a chance that the parts won’t fit. That is unacceptable to the parts maker and the… Read more
