CNC Milling Services

CNC maching performing milling

CNC milling is a type of CNC machining services option that is very similar to drilling and cutting. CNC milling utilizes a cylindrical cutting tool that can rotate in various directions. As a smaller privately-owned metal open-die forging manufacturer, Great Lakes Forge’s CNC Milling services provide shorter lead times than our corporate competitors. We will work directly with you to provide exceptional service for your CNC Milling parts needs.

At Great Lakes Forge, our CNC milling machines create numerous types of shapes, slots, holes, and other necessary impressions that a standard drill could never achieve. As an added benefit the work piece of a CNC mill can be moved across the milling tool in specific directions. A drill is only able to achieve a single axis motion, which limits its overall production capability.

What Materials are Available for CNC Milling?

Our CNC milling machines utilize premium quality carbon steel, alloy steel and stainless steel materials to manufacture custom parts and components based on your project’s exact specifications. Like the processes of drilling and cutting, specific CNC machine tools must be chosen for each material that is machined. Additionally, the density of the material at-hand, along with the rotation of the cutting tool, must be taken into consideration prior to starting the milling production process. Our CNC Milling Services are offered in the following material options:

Custom CNC Machining Capabilities

CNC mills are very efficient when it comes to conserving materials. A CNC mill generally produces very little waste materials, which can save on material costs over the lifespan of the machine. The types of products that CNC mills can fabricate, include:

  • Prototype parts
  • Complex short-run production parts
  • Precision parts & components 

The extreme efficiency that CNC mills provide can transform a productions process in time, precision and the quality of the materials that are being manufactured.
