CNC (computer numerical control) machining brings precision and efficiency to the work. Computer control reduces the margin of error because it effectively eliminates the possibility of human mistakes. CNC machining is suitable for mass production and the working of individual pieces.
CNC machines can combine multiple stages of work, and the machine can process the piece independently for up to several hours. If loading blanks is automated by means of, say, a rod feeder or a collaborative robot, the machine can run on its own for days. When the parts are efficiently machined, costs are reduced.
CNC machines are suitable for producing dimensionally accurate series, as their repetition precision is excellent. Machining precise tolerances is easily done because it is possible to combine machining phases so that they can be done using only one clamping. Computer control reduces the margin of error because it effectively eliminates the possibility of human mistakes.
Difficult shapes are easier to work with a CNC machine than manually. Cones, bevels, roundings and threads can be achieved without custom-made tools and clamping mounts. The trickiest shapes cannot even be machined by other means than CNC technology.
CNC machining is suitable for mass production and the working of individual pieces. A myriad of varying materials can be processed with machining: steels and stainless steels, cast iron, aluminum, copper and brass, as well as a wide range of high heat-resistant super alloys such as various nickel-, cobalt- and titanium-based materials and various plastics.

We implement orders of all sizes from individual parts to serial production. The cost of machining work is based on the time spent on programming and machining, the complexity of machinery and materials needed, and the complexity of the pieces. When expert design is part of the project, the efficiency of the work is maximized and the price becomes more affordable.
Milling is a machining method in which material is removed from a piece using a rotating multi-tooth tool: i.e., a blade. Milling can be used to produce multifaceted parts with, for example, flat and curved surfaces, grooves and tooth shapes.
Our extensive and modern machine base in 3-, 4- and 5-axis milling allows us to work with a wide variety of surfaces, wedges and other irregular shapes. We are able to work with milling pieces up to 1250 mm x 1000 mm x 1000 mm, with the smallest pieces at a diameter of 1 mm.
By turning, for example, shafts, discs, screws, cones, bushings and rings are produced; i.e., pieces having a circular cross-section. Our turning service features modern CNC metal lathes that can be utilized to machine rods as well as various blanks. The accuracy of repetition of movements is thousandths of a millimeter.
