CNC Drilling Services

We provide CNC drilling services for the fabrication of both small and large series of parts of any complexity. We use various types of drill presses (upright, bench, radial), which allows us to drill holes of both simple and complex patterns up to 7 cm in diameter. The fabrication is possible with metals and alloys (aluminum, steel, copper, and others) and polymers.

Applications for CNC

Rapid Tooling

Because CNC can be applied to virtually any material, it is perfect for rapid tooling, i.e., creating fixtures or molds.

Rapid Prototyping

The range of materials available, low cost per unit, and speed of production makes CNC a great option for prototyping.

End-Use Production

High-quality finish, vast material options and precise tolerances have made CNC a favorable technology for end-use parts.

Overview: What is CNC Drilling?

CNC drilling is a technology of CNC machining that uses a computer with a pre-uploaded CAD file to execute the process of drilling holes in a workpiece. The advantages of CNC drilling are high precision both of the patterns and holes and scalability of ready parts.
