At RWD Tool, we have a high precision machine shop in Toronto comprised of state of the art CNC Milling, Lathe, EDM and grinding machines. With conventional and modern capabilities, we are capable of holding tolerances to within 50 millionths, finishes to 1 light band, turn components up to 22.00" in diameter X 36.00" long and mill components up to 32.00" x 32.00".

We take pride in being a comprehensive, modern and accurate machine shop in Toronto’s booming industrial and commercial sector.

In our shop, manufacturing processes and programs are closely coordinated to achieve an optimal match of resources in the machine shop for effective cost, quality, and delivery. Decision making involves full team participation and involvement.

The team often consists of manufacturing, engineering, purchasing, customers and suppliers. Collaboration between us and our customers is a key component to the success of  engineering. In custom machining, CNC-like systems are now used for any process that can be described as a series of movements and operations. These include laser cutting, welding, friction stir welding, ultrasonic welding, flame and plasma cutting, bending, spinning, hole-punching, pinning, gluing, fabric cutting, sewing, tape and fiber placement, routing, picking and placing, and sawing. Most new CNC systems built today are 100% electronically controlled.

To prepare a cost effective custom machining project, modern solid modeling CAD system (such as Solidworks, Pro Engineer or Inventor) can help, especially if parts have complex 3D surfaces or features that are difficult to see in a 2D drawing. In addition, we program directly off the outside surfaces when doing 3D machining of many parts. In this case, having a solid model can save a huge amount of time any money since we don't have to recreate the model ourselves from the 2D information.

There is a trend among engineers to provide only a solid model to a machine shop. This is an attempt to save time, since in some CAD systems, like Solidworks, information on holes and other attributes can be shown in the design tree of the solid model. If the machine shop has a license for the software in-house, they can refer to the design tree and theoretically machine the part without any detailed 2D drawing or print at all.
