- Stainless Steel 303
- Stainless Steel 304
- Stainless Steel 316/316L
- Stainless Steel 416
- Stainless Steel 420
- Steel A36
Stainless steel 304 is resistant to most environments and has many food processing and other sanitary applications.
- Titanium Grade 1
- Titanium Grade 2
Titanium Grade 2 is stronger than Grade 1 and is often used by the medical, marine, and aerospace industries.
Our standard finish is “as machined” finish. It has a surface roughness of 3.2 μm (125 μin). Parts are left with visible tool marks. Parts are deburred and sharp edges removed.
Fastest turnaround time.
Powder coating is a durable, eco-friendly finish that offers protection and corrosion resistance. Available in an endless range of colors.
- Type II
- Type III
Type II coatings are used to protect and color aluminum parts for decorative purposes only, where there are minimal requirements for durability.
Type III anodizing provides a thicker wear-resistant layer.
Bead blasting adds a uniform matte or satin surface finish, removing the tool marks.
Surface smoothness is determined by grit of blast media (higher grits leave behind a smoother finish).
Brushing polishes the metal with grit resulting in a unidirectional satin finish.

What is CNC Machining?
CNC Machining Basics
CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining is a subtractive manufacturing method that uses computer software to control the movement of factory tools and equipment. Common CNC equipment includes vertical milling machines, horizontal milling machines, lathes, and routers.
How Does CNC Machining Work?
First, engineers create a CAD model of the part. The machinist then turns this file into a CNC program called G-Code, which maps a series of movements to create the part. Finally, the machine executes the program and removes material from a solid block (called a blank or workpiece) using a variety of cutting tools.
G-Code tells the machine how fast to move, how fast to turn and where to move the blank and/or tool using X/Y/Z (3-axis) or X/Y/Z/A/B (5-axis) coordinates. Simple 2-axis machines only use X and Z.
Benefits Of CNC Machining
Most materials can be machined including metal, plastic, composites, and wood. Due to the high level of automation, CNC machining is competitively priced for both prototypes and high volume production. Once a part has been programmed, it can be reproduced quickly with a high level of precision.
There is a wide range of materials that can be used in CNC machining: aluminum, steel, brass, copper, titanium, as well as rigid plastics. Talk with us about your project to learn more.
Yes! Our engineers can work with you and help develop your design.
Yes! Machined parts are generally used with concealed head PEM® brand self-clinching fasteners. Inserting these fasteners into blind holes has the extra benefit of a smooth finish on the opposite sides of sheet metal after the fastener is installed.
We specify a standard dimensional tolerance of +/-0.005" for CNC machined parts. However, we can achieve tighter tolerances on machines.
Tighter tolerances may increase the cost of your project and have to be clearly defined upon ordering. Contact us for more information.
