Traditional chucking-type CNC machining works by rotating the workpiece (bar stock, forging, slug) and moving the cutting tool along the desired cutting path. The high-velocity impact of the tool and workpiece then “shears” material off the part to form the desired shapes and machined components. Operations include turning, boring, drilling, milling, reaming, threading, knurling, grooving & trepanning. For live tooling, the part is stopped from rotating in the collet and the tool then has the rotating action to cut the material. Common materials that we usually work with are copper, stainless steel, brass, aluminum, and many more.
All of the precision machining centers at E. J. Basler are vertical machining centers. These machines use vise clamp jaws, collets, or other work holding to secure the workpiece. After being loaded from an automatic tool changer, the tool (drill, mill, tap) then approaches the part from a vertical position and performs the necessary operation. Vertical machining centers are excellent for secondary-type operations and quick setup times. If you are in need of CNC swiss machined components, contact E.J. Basler for any project you have in mind.
