Precision machining is a process that creates small, highly complex, close tolerance products. The process of precision machining shortens lead times for manufacturing, eliminates unnecessary operations, and streamlines complex geometries into a single process. The precision machining process starts by using computer-aided manufacturing (“CAM”) which is the use of software tools that assist engineering and machinists. Following the creation of a computer-aided design (“CAD”), the machining progresses through four stages: roughing, semi-finishing, finishing, and contour milling. During roughing, the raw stock, known as billet, is cut roughly to the shape of the final model. At the semi-finishing stage, the part is cut to a nearer shape of the model. Next, finishing involves a slow pass across the material in very fine steps. Lastly, during the contour milling stage, the work piece is rotated. This produces an excellent surface finish with dimensional accuracy.
