CNC Machining For Multiple Industries

CNC Machining Process

Precision CNC Machining for Machined Parts

CNC machining involves utilizing software and innovative equipment to quickly produce components with specific geometries at high volumes. At Pentz Cast Solutions, our extensive selection of 3 axis, 4 axis and 5 axis CNC machining equipment and CAD/CAD/CNC software enable us to create high-quality, complex machined components from high-strength aluminum alloys and other materials. Our innovative CNC equipment can turn tight tolerances and offers high repeatability to save time compared to standard manufacturing processes. Our in-house CNC machining capabilities ensure each component is manufactured by a dedicated, skilled Pentz machinist.

CNC Machining Process: From Prototyping to Production

At Pentz, our extensive engineering and manufacturing services allow us to control the entire casting process, from CAD to testing. This means that we are already familiar with the castings by the time it reaches the CNC machining phase, which makes for more efficient and accurate machining. A first article casting sample from the foundry goes to CNC early to speed the machining process and to verify the casting. Our quick tooling revisions enable continuous improvements during the CNC machining process. Building cast parts and CNC machining can and is often accomplished simultaneously to drastically shorten deliveries for proto parts as well as high production parts. Each casting is finished, checked, proven and approved prior to mass production.

Custom CNC Machining Capabilities

3 Axis CNC Machining

3 axis milling is ideal for components that don’t require complex geometries or intricate detailing. The workpiece remains in the same position during cutting, and can be drilled, milled or formed to standard parts such as squares.

4 Axis CNC Machining

4 axis machining adds an additional rotary movement around the A axis that allows for the sides of a piece to be cut or drilled. The additional axis gives increased accessibility and rotation as the operator is allowed to flip the component.

5 Axis CNC Machining

5 axis machining is the best option for high performance and mission critical parts that cannot be created with any other machine. 5-axis machining allows automatic movement along the X, Y and Z axes with 2 rotational axes. Parts can be manipulated from 5 sides at a time.

CAD/CAM/CNC Software & Capabilities

Our CAD/CAM/CNC software allows us to design components with tight tolerances and complex geometries for CNC manufacturing. By utilizing tooling software, we can machine almost any component with improved accuracy and shortened timelines. Our software offering includes:

  • Cimatron Programming Software w 5th Axis
  • Vericut Software
  • Solidworks 

CNC Machining Materials Used

While we specialize in aluminum castings, our unique CNC machining offers numerical controlled machining capabilities that enables us to form accurate, complex parts from a variety of materials. We’ve created castings in low to high volume production for plastic, hard wood and pattern pine. Our most popular selection of aluminum grades includes:
