CNC Machining Services
CNC machining, or computer numerical control machining, is the process of producing a component via the automated removal of solid material from a block. This is known as subtractive manufacturing. CNC machining involves programming a motorised machining centre using computer aided design / manufacturing software (CAD / CAM software) to produce a finished component. This is the most effective method of precision machining, utilising intricate toolpaths to be followed to produce a workpiece to far greater degrees of accuracy than manual machining.
Here at I&G Precision Engineering, we provide a range of CNC machining services for a variety of industry sectors across the UK. Based just outside Swansea in South Wales, our factory is equipped with a range of high-speed CNC technology that allows us to manufacture parts on a timescale that suits you. We utilise both CNC milling and turning methods to produce the parts you need from a range of materials including steel, aluminium, superalloys, plastic, brass, copper and more.
Milling is a method of CNC machining that involves the use of rotary cutting tools moving along multiple axes to remove material from a block. We utilise innovative 5-axis machining technology to produce precision components faster than is possible with 3-axis machinery. This method also gives us more intricate capabilities than can be achieved with traditional methods.
CNC turning uses a lathe or turning centre to spin a material around a central point, while a cutting tool shapes the material into the desired shape. CNC is used to create parts with cylindrical features, and is ideal for producing both functional prototypes and end use components. Our Haas turning centres allows us to produce high quality cylindrical components on a rapid scale.
Why Work With Us?
Over the last 40 years, we have developed our family business into a well respected organisation within the UK precision manufacturing sector. Through consistent investment in the latest technology and industry best practices, we have fostered long standing relationships with a variety of businesses across multiple sectors, from aerospace and automotive to oil and gas, medical care and the defence sector.
As a company, we have a strict commitment to quality and precision, with every component we produce undergoing a rigorous quality control and inspection process. We are proud bearers of the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for quality of services, with every machine on our shop floor constantly maintained to UKAS standards. We have also been awarded the Investors in People certification for our dedication to developing the skills and knowledge base of our employees.
In order to maintain a level of quality we are proud of, we are constantly adapting and evolving our production processes to accommodate the latest industry best practices and innovations in technology, such as 5-axis CNC machining technology and EDGECAM CAD / CAM software. Staying on top of the latest machining innovations allows us to ship between 600 and 700 components every month.
