Machining may be generally defined as the process of shaping down a piece of material into an intended design using specialty, power-driven tools. For example, many parts and components need some machining during manufacturing. Machining can be used to shape metals, plastic, rubbers, and more. In other cases, machining can be used to fix current parts or fabricate new ones.
Types of Machining Processes
Machining involves everything from research and development to installing and testing the new part. This is achieved through many different processes which include:
Machining has an endless range of applications from creating brand new products to helping repair old ones. For example, you may have a piece of rotating equipment that is decades old. It works fine but has a faulty component. The manufacturer no longer makes it. Are you now forced to replace an otherwise perfectly good piece of machinery? No. You may hire machining experts to help design, create, and install the faulty component. Best of all, it can cost less than an OEM part, last just as long, and also comes with a warranty. In this case, machining a new part is much more cost effective than replacing the entire piece of equipment.
