Why CNC engineering is needed in your business
• Recognised for rapid response and flexibility •
From raw materials, CNC engineering to finished products, we are a one-stop-shop service.
Good to Go
Base materials are available off the shelf within hours or days of receiving an order. It typically takes hours or a few days for our team to programme parts into our CADCAM computer. Yet, by the time we’ve planned, prepped the tools, programmed and verified the cutter paths, we’re good to go by the time the base material reaches us.
Most base materials slot directly into a vice within a CNC engineering mill. If needed, our mill can use soft jaws to grip exceptionally complex shapes made during the first operation. This way, we can turn the part over and hold it during the second operation. Few parts tend to need fixturing; unless the customer wants to do batch production at the same time.
The Thicker the Better
The time it takes to make a part with a 3D printer is proportional to the volume of the material. Therefore, the heavier the part, the longer it takes. Yet, with CNC engineering, it’s almost the exact opposite. The less material you want to remove, the lower the cost. With CNC engineering, the thicker the better.
Receptive to Change
Another fantastic benefit about CNC engineering – and 3D printing too, for that matter – is that it’s receptive to change. If push comes to shove, we can stop and make changes to the CADCAM programme. Better still, we can be back in production in a matter of a few minutes to a few hours. It simply depends on the scale of the changes and whether work has begun.
Since we began in the later 80s, CNC engineering has not only gotten faster over the years but it’s also gotten far more precise. Many companies now do CNC milling and turning as it allows for the most breath-taking tolerances. In fact, 5 microns is now achievable, something that was only considered possible in the realms of grinding.
How CNC engineering can benefit your business
Our modern machine shop specialises in quality, reliability and cost-competitive prices
The popularity of CNC engineering has seen an accelerated boom over the years. These major steps forward have unchained many CNC engineers and allowed them to think outside the realms of possibility. Now, with the redundancy of manual labour on the horizon, fewer businesses need to employ workers. Automation not only saves a significant amount on wages but allows for precise duplications. By utilising state-of-the-art CNC engineering techniques – including CAD/CAM program-proving technology – we supply precision engineering services from our purpose-built facility.
At Entech, we are committed to providing a variety of sectors with a cost-effective solution. We provide CNC milling and turning requirements throughout the UK and across the globe. Our modern machine shop specialises in quality, reliability and cost-competitive prices. We are fully stocked with a range of manual and CNC engineering equipment enhanced by CADCAM facilities. Continued investment in the latest equipment enables us to produce a selection of components. All of which are manufactured to the highest quality and standards, in a range of titanium, stainless steel, aluminium and plastics.
What is the chief advantage of CNC engineering?
One part is just as easy to produce as one thousand
One of the almighty advantages of CNC engineering is the versatility the machines provide. They are highly flexible and adaptable to many shapes and sizes of parts. Due to this, there is no need for fixed tooling one part. Why? Because one part is just as easy to produce as one thousand. CNC engineering machined components are not only as rigorous as ones delicately crafted by other means. They also have excellent surface finishes. Plus, you can choose to put them into service immediately or they can be further processed with additional treatments. This includes everything from plating to painting, polishing, anodizing and more.
