CNC Machining Services
Standard and large format CNC Machining Services provides an exceptionally accurate and reliable way to deliver forgings and CNC Machined Parts with extremely tight tolerances. The CNC machining process produces parts with tight tolerances that would be impossible to achieve through the forging process alone.
At Great Lakes Forge, we deliver custom forgings that precisely match our customers' final design requirements, while providing fully customized CNC machining services. Our CNC Machining experts will work with you to provide CNC Machining Services that are designed to produce CNC Machined Parts based on your project’s exact specifications.
Custom Machining Services
Great Lakes Forge strives to deliver custom forgings that better match our customers' final design requirements. Our precision, large format CNC lathe enables us to provide several CNC machining forging services to customer specifications, including:
By providing precision machining in-house, we reduce the number of vendors you need to work with, and thereby reducing the total time and cost of your project.
Large Format CNC Machining for Superior Accuracy Repeatability
Great Lakes Forge's large format CNC system can accommodate round or cylindrical parts up to 18" in diameter. We can turn parts up to 76" long to match the tight tolerances of our customers' designs. We can bore or drill holes up to 18" deep in parts up to 53" in length.
Our CNC machining software enables us to retain customer design files and specifications for future orders. If you need to reorder a custom forged and machined part or component one, two, or ten years from now, it will be identical to the original part Great Lakes Forge provided.
Material Options for CNC Machining
One of our greatest strengths at Great Lakes Forge is our investment in a wide variety of inventory in grades of stainless steel, carbon, and alloy steel that allows us to meet your custom forging deadlines. We have built and maintained good relationships with material steel suppliers to make sure we get competitive pricing, excellent quality, and timely deliveries. We provide the following CNC Machining Service material options:
- 15-5 stainless steel
- 13-8 stainless steel
- 17-4 stainless steel
- 316 & 316L stainless steel
- Nitronic 50 stainless steel
- Carbon steel
- Alloy steel
What CNC Machining Processes are Available?
At Great Lakes Forge, we utilize CNC Machining processes to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts.
CNC machining services supersedes the limitations of manual control. Live operators are needed to input the commands of the computer through buttons, levers, and wheels, but the computerized machine does all the machining and cutting through its imputed program.
At Great Lakes Forge, our CNC mills run on programs comprised of number- and letter-based prompts, which guide pieces across various distances. The programming employed for a CNC mill machine could be based on either G-code or some unique language developed by a manufacturing team. Basic mills consist of a three-axis system (X, Y and Z).

GLF’s CNC controlled turning lathe functions by securing and rotating the product being machined along a dual-axis of movement at high speeds, while a single point cutting, or boring tool shapes the material, resulting in the desired component being created. The CNC turning lathe is controlled by computer programs; ensuring that the exact same components can be produced and reproduced with systematic precision. GLF provides outstanding CNC turning capabilities based on your project’s exact specifications!
