CNC Machining for the Aerospace Industry

In general, CNC Machining is trusted to mass-produce various products and parts for a wide variety of industries. Thanks to the advent of CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design & Manufacture), the cost of human error is vastly reduced. CNC machines follow instructions, known as G-Code, generated by CNC programs, this allows parts to be manufactured exactly […]

Choosing the Right Metal for CNC Machining

CNC milling and machining are extremely common manufacturing processes and it’s easy to see why. Compared to traditional methods, CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining offers rapid production whilst also requiring minimal human input. Benefits of this include a more cost-efficient workforce but, more importantly, less room for human error. Not only are parts made swiftly […]

Understanding CNC Milling – A Beginners Guide

What is CNC Milling? CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling, like other subtractive manufacturing forms, works by removing material to create a final design. The CNC Milling process involves multi-point cutting tools being controlled by a computerised programme which reads and translates machine paths. These machine paths originate from CAD/CAM software (Computer Aided Design/Manufacture) programmes which […]

CNC Tips and Tricks

As we evolve we learn ways to make things easier – to take up less of our time and effort. CNC machining is a perfect example of this – advancing from manually-operated factory machines requiring constant supervision and to almost autonomous appliances. Though CNC machining is a time and cost effective endeavour in itself, there […]

The What, How and Why of 5-Axis CNC Machining

CNC machines come in a range of forms with various applications and specialities. One of these models is 5 axis machining. As the name suggests, the machine has 5 axes which dictate the diversity of directions in which the tool can travel. Where many CNC machines operate with simply an X, Y and Z linear […]

Additive VS Subtractive Manufacturing

  Overview Additive and subtractive manufacturing both function via CAD (Computer Aided Design) software. Both forms of manufacturing can be highly accurate and used for intricate designs for various industries and uses. Both have their niches and benefits for specific aims, which we will delve into below. Additive Manufacturing The world of additive manufacturing is […]

Types Of CNC Machine

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines function via pre-programmed instructions which are devised using CAD (Computer Aided Design) software. Once the layout is created it is converted into g-code. G-code is a CNC-legible format used to translate the CAD model into operation guidelines for a CNC machine, such as number values and co-ordinates. CNC machines are […]

Why NDA’s do not work in China

Asking a company to sign an NDA before sending sensitive drawings and information is common, and is recommended to protect IP and trade secrets. In the UK, Non-Disclosure Agreements or Mutual Non Disclosure Agreements are legally binding as you might expect. However, when dealing with China, sending an agreement that works in the UK does […]
