CNC Milling Service

DST CNC milling service is dedicated to creating complex geometries and features on metal and plastic parts, no matter for prototypes or low-volume manufacturing.

Our CNC milling services are designed to complement our many other fabrication and finishing capabilities, to provide you with a complete and rapid turn-key solution for your next project.

What Is CNC Milling?

Milling is the process of removing material from a solid blank to create a finished or semi-finished shape. The process is guided by your CAD file, optimized to create a physical copy of your digital design.

The work piece is held in a rigid vice or holding fixture, mounted on a work table In CNC milling. This table rotates as well as pivots, making two axes of movement. Cutting tools mounted on a rotating spindle remove material to create a variety of complex geometries and part features on the work piece. The real advantage of a multi-axis milling machine, is that the worktable and the spindle move on many axes independent to one another, providing not only accuracy and repeatability but also versatility.

Why Choose CNC Milling?

CNC milling is ideal for making angled shapes, slots and channels, chamfers, holes, curves and flat surfaces, among many other features. A CNC mill removes large amounts of material fast with high accuracy, while producing a good surface finish. Milling can be done on any rigid material, such as metals and plastics. Milling is used not only to make finished parts but also to build tooling for plastic injection molding and pressure die casting.

What kinds of Material can be used for CNC milling?

Raw material including hard plastics and aluminum, various steels, titanium, magnesium, brass, copper and other alloys.

Note that some hardened steels may be too hard to CNC machine, or else would require specialty cutting tools and longer processing times. Soft elastomers or plastics may also be impossible to mill since they cannot be held in a fixed position or would change in shape under the pressure of the cutting tool.
