As a long-tenured company in the manufacturing industry, we at Southern Spring & Stamping, Inc. are expert providers of custom CNC machined components. Over the last six decades, we have continued to expand our capabilities and invest in the newest technology and equipment to better serve our customers. Our CNC capabilities allow us to fulfill a broad range of product requirements in a prompt, quality-driven, and cost-effective manner.

With 4-axis capabilities and customized programming tools, we can machine all features of a workpiece from a single setup at accelerated cycle times. Also included in our CNC machining arsenal is an automated pallet changing system that allows for continuous machining. Consequently, no idle time means faster throughput and quicker turnaround. All of our processes are quality-certified, and we employ statistical process controls to monitor accuracy, minimize variability, and produce a consistently high rate of conforming product.

We machine metals in a variety of grades and temper, including stainless steel, aluminum, aircraft alloys, copper, and many more. Our team of skilled professionals can design and build dedicated work holding fixtures as well as custom product fixturing solutions to promote repeatable production. In addition to milling, drilling, and boring; we can create complex thread profiles, and internal forms on workpieces that measure up to 40.0” in length x 20.0” in height. As a full-service manufacturer, we also offer additional services, such as grinding, heat treating, and metal finishing.

Whether you need prototype parts or a production run on a large scale, we have the resources to meet your needs. We are an ISO 9001 certified company and capable of meeting a range of tough industry standards. For more information about our CNC machining capabilities or a quote, contact us today.

About CNC Machining

Computer Numerical Control, or CNC machining, uses computer software to control the movement of a range of sophisticated factory tools and machinery. The specialized software programs used in CNC machining improve manufacturing processes by eliminating the manual operation of machines and enabling processes such as intricate three-dimensional cutting to be completed with a single set of computer prompts.

CNC Machining Processes and Applications

types of cnc machining processesCNC machining processes are used with various machines such as grinders, lathes, mills, and routers to improve manufacturing capabilities for many applications.

Milling

Milling is a process that uses multi-tooth cutting tools to remove material from a workpiece. Most milling machines operate using a stationary cutting tool and a movable table, while some feature a movable table and cutting tool. The workpiece is attached to the table and moved against the cutting tool to remove the desired material.

Milling machines typically include both vertical and horizontal mounted cutting tools, making it a sophisticated and flexible machine capable of performing several intricate processes. Milling machines can perform various operations such as planing, cutting, routing, die sinking, and other complex processes, making them highly flexible pieces of equipment.

Drilling

A drill press or drilling machine is a single-purpose machine designed to create a round hole in a workpiece accurately and precisely. Drilling is the most common and generally the best method of producing holes in a solid piece of material.

The drill bit is a cylindrical bar with two spiral channels or flutes with radial cutting edges that run up the shaft. The process consists of rotating the drill bit and feeding it into the workpiece. As pressure is applied to the drill bit, the cutting edges penetrate the material. At the same time, the spiral channels facilitate the removal of excess material from the newly created hole. One of the oldest and most common machining processes, drilling provides an easy method of creating an accurate hole by controlling both the cutting speed and feed rate.

Grinding

Grinding is a machining process that uses an abrasive grinding wheel or grinder as the cutting tool. The operation is commonly used as a finishing process for applications that require components to have high surface quality and accurate shapes and dimensions. The precise control offered by CNC grinding machines provides the highest quality surface, shape, and dimension control available in the machining industry.
