In many respects, CNC machining is the heart of advanced manufacturing. CNC machining processes such as CNC milling, CNC turning, and Swiss screw machining are used in the production of everything from screws to aerospace turbine blades. Without the amazing high-tech capabilities unique to the CNC machining process, many products would be impossible to produce. CNC equipment can make parts with complex shapes and make them over and over again with precision. CNC machining enables buyers to innovate, significantly reduce costs and stay competitive in a global market.
SourceHorizon enables you to source CNC machining services (CNC Milling, CNC Turning, Swiss Screw Machining, and more) from well-qualified suppliers.
Popular Machining Methods
Use 4th, 5th and 6th Axis for Complex Parts
Today’s CNC mills and CNC machining centers have enabled us to exploit multi-axis machining to its full advantage. Standard CNC machining centers usually have four axes. The addition of a 5th and 6th axis and more robust live tooling enables the ability to machine complex shapes in a single setup, which saves time, cost and operator error. As such, the CNC process allows for consistency in parts production that would be difficult, if not impossible, to replicate manually.

Mulitple Spindles. Live Tooling.
CNC Turning uses computer-controlled machines to create a cylindrical or tubular product with exact measurements. Today, CNC lathes and turning centers often utilize multiple spindles and live tooling that enables manufacturers to produce very complex parts economically in both prototype and production quantities. Like CNC milling, the CNC process allows for consistency in parts production that would be difficult, if not impossible, to replicate manually.

Small, Precise Parts in Volume
Screw Machining and Swiss Screw Machining are used to create small and often complex parts in high volumes. Examples of simple parts include screws and fasteners. Complex items are often found in medical devices and aerospace and defense applications, among others. Today’s screw machines often have multiple spindles and live tooling and produce parts economically.
Regardless of the machining process required, SourceHorizon suppliers have the equipment, capacity, and expertise to handle your project.
