There are many challenges to working with various types of material in CNC machining. It takes decades of experience to be able to machine parts from exotic metals and all different types of plastics. Bronze based metals have unique challenges as well and many times our clients want us to have their products painted, powder coated, anodized, or laser etched after machining which means planning n crucial to the success of any exotic materials project we get from a client.
Many people mistakenly believe that because some materials are softer than steel, like plastic, that it must be easy to make complex parts. Well it is, until you have to hold high tolerances and work with very small parts.
We are also manufacturing prototypes using 3D Printing capabilities because we believe in being on the front lines of new technology in our industry even though our core business is all CNC Machining.
We also maintain an excellent business relationship with many vendors to get the needs of our clients met quickly and under budget. Many of our vendors have been with us for decades too.
