Why Go With Us For Precision CNC Machining?

At Affinity Manufacturing Ltd, we pride ourselves on having the best and most up to date computer numerical controlled machines, particularly precision CNC machines. Yes there are many companies out there that can provide you with precision CNC machines, but they are not always the best and most advanced.

This can become a problem when you need to make a particular part, or manufacture something that requires extremely particular precision CNC machines. These precision CNC machines can be too expensive for one company to buy for a small production run, but they are so advanced that you need to carefully research your provider in order to make sure that they can offer you exactly what you need.

If you choose to go with Affinity Manufacturing Ltd for your precision CNC machines, then you can count on having the best computer numerical controlled options available to you. As well, you will have a team of experts who can assist you with everything you need for your production, from design help to small tips along the way, to follow up advice. This is the type of company you want behind you when you are developing a prototype, or manufacturing a unique production.

Some people might have concerns when using an outside firm to provide precision CNC machining because of the nature of the product that is being manufactured. It could be a prototype, or something very unique and proprietary. Concerns come into the picture as the owner of the designs might worry that the company providing the precision CNC machines could leak these designs, or information regarding the manufacturing process. This may happen with some companies, but absolutely not if you choose to go with Affinity Manufacturing Ltd as your precision CNC machining provider, as we offer a full non disclosure agreement.

There really is no need to look elsewhere for precision CNC machines. We have everything you need for your manufacturing purposes. As recently as July, we’ve added the following advanced CNC precision machines:

Part name: Fuel Cell Parts Material: Nickel 200 Tolerance: +-0.02 mm Challenge: Nickel 200 is highly ductile which makes it very hard to machine.

Part Name: Sensor Switch Material: Turcite Tolerance: +-0.01 mm Challenge: Extremely fragile part to be machined on CNC Lathe & CNC Milling.

For the most advanced precision CNC machines and the best service, we’re the company you can count on.

Why CNC machines are the future

If you have a basic understanding of CNC machines, then it may not surprise you that many people are tapping them to be the future of the manufacturing world, as well as being widespread in domestic use too.

So why are CNC machines the future, and what do I need to know about them?

CNC (computer numerical control) machines are controlled by software, allowing the user to generate a design and have the machine create the product. CNC machines incorporate a whole host of functions such as drilling, routing, milling and cutting, making them extremely versatile.

As CNC machines do not need to be manually controlled while they work, this allows for repeated work to be performed reliably, and over an extensive amount of time. A huge benefit of this is that CNC machines can be left to work with minimal human involvement, allowing a much greater level of productivity and efficiency.

Limitless capabilities

As the technology expands, the only limits or capabilities for the user are their programming abilities and imagination. As the software that accompanies these devices becomes more powerful, yet easier to use, it becomes increasingly accessible to new users.

Rapid rise

Only a decade ago, CNC machines were used predominantly by manufacturers and factories on large scale industrial projects, whereas now the scale is reducing, so that the general public are able to acquire powerful CNC machines to create their own work. This has opened up the potential market for buyers, appealing to an increasing amount of people.

The move to mobile CNC machines

While CNC machines in the past have been generally large machines that are not mobile, the next step in their development looks poised to be mobile devices that are easily portable. It may be that numerous small devices are then able to connect together to create larger projects, with hundreds or thousands working in cooperation on different tasks.

Manufacturing developments

While CNC machines may become more prominent among households and smaller businesses, they are also set to continue their dynamic contribution to large manufacturing companies and factories worldwide.

As the CNC machines themselves become more intricate and advanced, manufacturing companies are able to produce even more precise products, paving the way for advanced developments, such as nanotechnology.

The advancement of the CNC machine remains one of the most exciting developments in modern manufacturing technology and, with the ability to rapidly create products and parts, it is sure to change the way that the manufacturing industry operates, as well as the global economy too.
