Precision Machining

Precision Machining

Machining is a manufacturing process that involves the use of various tools and machines to remove material from a workpiece to achieve the desired shape, size, and finish. It is a crucial technique in the production of metal parts used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, electronics and medical.

The primary goal of machining is to transform raw materials into finished products with high precision and accuracy. During the process, a cutting tool, typically in the form of a drill, lathe, milling machine, or grinding wheel, is used to remove excess material from the workpiece through cutting, shearing, grinding, or other actions.
