Complete CNC Machining Services

In the precision manufacturing industry, Trace-A-Matic has emerged as a leader in CNC machining services, delivering high-performance and innovative solutions.

CNC machining is a critical manufacturing process in which material is removed from a workpiece to create a part or component to exact specifications. Trace-A-Matic’s CNC machines are programmed to ensure utmost precision, handling complex shapes and intricate designs essential for high-performance applications. The process begins with a CAD file containing the detailed design and dimensions of the part. This file serves as the blueprint from which the CNC machine operates.

Trace-A-Matic’s commitment to high performance is evident in their rigorous approach to CNC machining. Each component is crafted to meet stringent quality standards, often requiring high precision to ensure proper function and integration into larger systems. For industries like aerospace, automotive, and medical devices, where performance and reliability are crucial, Trace-A-Matic’s ability to deliver precisely machined parts makes it a go-to service provider.

One of Trace-A-Matic’s standout capabilities is its expertise in machining materials that require high electrical conductivity. Metals such as copper and its alloys are often challenging to machine due to their properties. Still, Trace-A-Matic’s advanced CNC technology and skilled technicians precisely handle these materials. This capability is significant for the electronics and aerospace industries, where components must fit and function flawlessly and meet specific electrical requirements.

The journey from a CAD file to a final machined part involves several refinement and quality control stages. Trace-A-Matic’s engineers and machinists account for every detail as they collaborate closely to interpret the CAD designs. The precision in this process is critical, especially for parts requiring high accuracy and integration into complex assemblies. The CNC machines perform the crucial task of removing material in a controlled manner, shaping the part as per the specifications outlined in the CAD file.

Trace-A-Matic is committed to continuous innovation in its CNC machining services. By investing in the latest machining technologies and providing ongoing training for its staff, it ensures that it remains at the forefront of the industry. This commitment not only enhances its capability to handle a wide range of materials and complex designs but also ensures that it can adapt to the evolving needs of its clients across various industries.

Trace-A-Matic’s CNC machining services are a testament to their dedication to quality, precision, and innovation. By efficiently removing material to meet high electrical conductivity and performance standards and transforming a simple CAD file into a high-performance part, they continue to support critical industries with their advanced manufacturing solutions. As they continue to innovate and refine their processes, Trace-A-Matic stands out as a leader in the CNC machining sector, ready to meet modern manufacturing challenges with expertise and advanced technology.

Multi-Axis and 5-Axis Machining

Trace-A-Matic conquers complex part manufacturing with state-of-the-art 5-axis CNC machining, backed by decades of experience and unmatched creativity. The 5-axis platform cuts part geometry and complex shapes unachievable by other machining methods. This enhanced machining capability increases accuracy by combining several standalone operations, significantly reducing part handling and multiple clamping phases during the process. The spindle head operates in closer proximity to the workpiece, allowing shorter cutting tools with less vibration and deflection, higher cutting speeds, tighter tool moves, and improved surface finishing capability.

Cost savings is another huge benefit of 5-axis technology. Consolidating 3-axis machining and other linear axes operations into a single set-up increases production throughput while reducing cycle time, costly work fixtures, and overall waste. It provides a more efficient and economical solution with faster lead time and production turnaround with outstanding quality. Learn more about our multi-axis and 5-axis machining service.
