CNC machining Inside corner radius .125" with a depth 1.25" of cut 

CNC Machining Key Advice

 â–ºTry to keep your radii on inside corners bigger than 1/6th the pocket depth.

 What are the procedures involved in CNC machining parts?

 The passage below shows how APPORO manufactures customized parts step by step from print to part:

 1.) Checking and Confirming Drawings

Till today, we already have checked and confirmed more than ten thousand CAD drawings. Discussions will be conducted if any issues occur in this stage:  

a.) Quote invitation will be turned down if the part is beyond APPORO's capabilities.  

b.) Our customers will receive suggestions if the design needs modifications to be machinable or to reduce to production cost without compromising the quality and functionality.  

c.) Our customers will receive a quote with the shortest and possible lead time for delivery.

2.) CNC Programming

Our professional CNC programmers use PC-based CAD/CAM software Mastercam for fast and efficient turning/milling. In this stage, we are dedicated to looking for better ways to optimize design for production.

 3.) CNC Production

Following instructions of CAM software, parts will be step by step well manufactured with CNC milling machine.  Speaking of CNC milling, ZP are capable of 2 axis, 3 axis, 4 axis and 5 axis machining. From simple dowel pins, shaft to complex CNC turning and milling parts, we can get you covered.
