In the era of CNC machining and 3D printing, astute planning of each process lights up the path towards a successful end. Like any other project, CNC machining requires proper planning on how each component will fall into place, with the stakeholders being adequate resources throughout the process. A custom CNC project involves critical steps, and its results determine the accuracy and efficiency of the product in meeting the user’s requirements.

A typical custom CNC machine parts Toronto project consists of four phases and are discussed below.

Determination and acquisition of the raw materials: The pre-fabrication phase of a custom machining project involves choosing the right materials. Comparing the materials available in the market with the materials used in the initial product or its prototype is essential as it determines how reminiscent the fabricated product is to the original one. Once the right materials for the project have been identified, a substantial lot should be procured as per the fabrication demands.

Engineering phase: With a CNC Machine parts Toronto project, we can help your rough ideas get translated into a drawing, a sketch, or a picture with the right dimensions being indicated by the side. Expert engineering skill are required in this phase as it determines the accuracy and preciseness of the end products. The engineer should help you determine the right angles, dimensions and other details relating to the performance of the fabricated products.

Machining phase: Upon receipt of the drawing, sketch or picture of the engineered product, the final product is transformed into a softcopy prototype. The process is called origination, and envisions transforming the initial sketch into an artwork that a CNC system can understand and curve out from the material selected. The next sub-phase involves cutting the material into shape and size as specified in the sketch, picture or original product. In this phase, machining, boring, sheering and bending may be involved in transforming the prototype to the end product.

Finishing phase: Once machining has been completed, the fabricated product is then polished into the desired texture, color and fineness. Common processes involved in this phase relate to color anodizing, black oxidation and zinc plating.

In each of the above phases, careful articulation of the details and proper processing of the final product are required. Skillful articulation of each detail is also essential.
