CNC milling is a machining process that is similar to both drilling and cutting. Like drilling, milling uses a rotating cylindrical cutting tool. However, the cutter in a milling machine can move along multiple axes, creating a variety of shapes, slots and holes. In addition, the work-piece is often moved across the milling tool in different directions, unlike the single axis motion of a drill.
Compared with CNC turning, CNC milling can be used to apply a machined surface or features on both plastic and metal parts or to create complex 3D structures. Generally, CNC milling are efficient when it comes to prototyping, the short-run production of complex components and the fabrication of precision parts. Meanwhile, these powerful machines offer a wide range of other benefits, particularly in terms of manipulating most materials in a very efficient manner. Manual mills are still there. However, with the affordability of CNC machining today, it is wise to use a CNC milling that shorten the production processes in time, upgrade precision precision, and enhance the quality.
CNC Turning is a manufacturing process in which the metal rod are held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material and create the final parts. Our CNC turning lathes enable high speed and quality turning for both metals and plastics, it can create parts with small details and extremely rigid designs.
Like CNC milling, CNC turning can be easily set up for high repeatability, which makes them suitable for all industries from rapid prototyping to low and high-volume production, makes them a cost-effective option for complex geometries that would otherwise require multiple machines or tool changes in a traditional CNC milling.
Our turning capacity is available for prototypes through to low-volume production.
Rex equips with 3, 4 and 5 axis machines to handle products from simple to complex, from prototype to low volume runs. Our capabilities include CNC turning, CNC milling and metal plate. Whatever project you have – we can provide service for it.
When it comes to sheet metal fabrication,CNC folding, CNC laser cutting and CNC punching, we will use a few of tools to make your parts. Stamping, folding, welding, drilling, tapping, wire cutting…sheet metal fabrication requires all of these capabilities and more in order to deliver the quality parts
