Manual Machining

Manual machining refers to machining operations performed directly by a human operator rather than computer-controlled technology. The operations that typically involve a manual mill or engine lathe utilizes cutting tools to remove excess material from the workpiece to achieve the desired part shape, size, and finish. Manual machines are generally limited to simple geometries, due to the nature of their control. Manual mills are generally used to create flat or rectangular geometries, while engine lathes are used to form cylindrical or helical geometries. Manual machines generally have faster setup times, but low material removal efficiency, and a limitation to part complexity. They are essential for simple machining operations, especially with very low part volumes.

Our machine shop has the following manual machining units:

  • Five (5) lathes
    • Toolmex TUR 710
    • Summit 42×240
    • Whacheon 20 1/2GX80
    • Dianichi 160 x 1200
    • Acra Turn
  • One (1) surface grinder
    • Blanchard 22AK-42
  • Two (3) horizontal mills
    • Lucas 42B-120
    • Lucas with tail stock

CNC Machining

Computer numerical control (CNC) machining refers to machining operations controlled by pre-programmed computer software rather than a human operator. The software dictates the motion and movement of the machine and machine tools, enabling the manufacture of highly complex and/or intricate components. CNC technology can be integrated into many different machining systems, such as lathes, mills, routers, and grinders. CNC machines have a much longer initial setup time than manual machines, but are much more efficient at removing material, capable of complex geometries and operations, and are essential for small to large volumes of parts.

Our machine shop has the following CNC machining units:

  • Two (2) lathes
    • Hwacheon HI-TECH 550BL MC
    • TRAK TRL 2470SX
  • Three (3) Vertical mills
    • HAAS VF-2 1998
    • Two (2) TRAK DRPM RX7
  • One (1) horizontal mill
    • HAAS EC-1600-ZT 2019
