Technological Advancements that Revolutionized Precision Machining

Precision machining can be used with a variety of fabrication tools and methods and is a process that is used to cut unusually tight tolerances, ranging from 0.013 mm to 0.0005mm. As its name suggests, it is an extremely exact process that yields sharp, precise cuts, that many years ago would have seemed impossible to achieve by the human hand. RWD Tool & Machine provides precision machining in Toronto that utilizes the most advanced technologies to boost our machining quality.


Thanks to technological advancements, machining has grown and can now achieve what was once impossible, by combining human creativity with machine powers.


For instance, the use of electronic motion controllers helps determine the position and velocity of the precision machining device. This means no room for error as the computer keys in the position of the cuts to the finest millimeter.

As issues with timing and other machining variables can affect delivery of precise and accurate results, algorithms were introduced to compensate for potential errors and improve the accuracy of high-speed precision machining. This combination of improved synchronicity and tooling quality leads to faster cycle times in the majority of automated machining applications. As a result, manufacturers were able to increase their machining capabilities without the need to buy new machinery.

Precision machining can also be used for surface finishes that are finer than 32T. There are a lot of factors that affect the exactness of the cut that a precision tool delivers, but technological advancements have allowed us tackle the issues present in geometric accuracy, stiffness, damping and more.


As established and tested providers of precision machining in Toronto, we are well-versed in the challenges of the practice but also the solutions.


Modern technology has greatly improved precision machining, and further technological advancements are only going to further develop the practice’s capabilities to be able to meet growing demand for even tighter tolerances and greater machining speed. RWD Tool will continue providing top of the line precision machining in Toronto and contribute to continuous innovation in the field of machining.
