Machining Services
Advanced MetalTech Manufacturing offers several secondary metal services aside from the primary fabrication processes. Machining is one of them, although in some ways it cannot be rightly considered a secondary process at all. Judging from the amount of money spent annually on machining services, it is perhaps the most important process used in manufacturing.

What is Machining?

Imagine a sculptor with a fresh block of marble or wood as a workpiece. Then he chips away parts of the workpiece until he ends up with a great work of art, such as the Pietà of Michelangelo. That’s essentially what machining is, although it is also called metal cutting when the workpiece is a metal.

In metal machining, cutting tools are employed to remove unwanted materials from a metal workpiece in order to end up with the shape required by the customer. The workpiece is usually from a bigger piece of stock, which can come in several standardized forms. It can be a flat sheet of metal, a shaped beam, a hollow tube, or a solid bar. The workpiece may also already be an existing component.

With machining, many different types of standard features can be created. This includes flat surfaces, slots, holes, and pockets. A component may also be able to feature complicated contours on its surface.

The use of conventional machining tools is the most common, and that’s when small chips of the workpiece are cut away with a cutting tool. In some instances, non-conventional machining processes are employed, when unwanted materials are removed through heat or the use of chemicals.
