CNC Milling Services

CNC maching performing milling

CNC milling is a type of machining service similar to drilling and cutting. A cylindrical cutting tool rotates in numerous directions for increased precision. While a standard drill can only achieve single-axis motion, CNC milling workpieces can be moved across the milling tool in specific directions, expanding overall production capabilities.

Custom CNC Milling Capabilities from Great Lakes Forge

GL Forge uses custom CNC milling efforts to enhance forged components, with services including:

  • Part Prototypes
  • Complex Short-Run Production Parts
  • Precision Components

CNC mills produce very little waste, reducing costs and preserving the amount of material required for projects. This allows us to use our CNC milling equipment to create prototypes at lower costs, helping refine forged parts for individual orders. Completed prototypes can then be manufactured in short production runs, producing complex parts efficiently and rapidly.

Our expert forging processes excel at forming custom requests, and our CNC milling capabilities enhance forged parts to produce precision components. The extreme efficiency of CNC milling processes reduces the time required for custom projects while improving the precision and quality of manufactured parts.

What Materials Are Available for CNC Milling?

At Great Lakes Forge, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive inventory of steel materials to meet all your custom forging demands. Specific CNC machine tools must be used for distinct materials, and GL Forge has the capabilities to successfully perform precision CNC milling on our steel alloys.
