Industrial Machining Process
Machining is any of various processes in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process. These include several techniques such as lathing for cylinder object, milling for general cuboid object, drilling to create hole, grinding to reduce sharpness or polish to create fine surface. We work with different machine shops who provide these services with best quality to provide customer finished goods with different technical specification requirements. A few of major techniques we have integrated in our supply chain to create common components include:
CNC machining is a manufacturing process in which pre-programmed computer software dictates the movement of factory tools and machinery. The process can be used to control a range of complex machinery, from grinders and lathes to mills and routers. With CNC machining, three-dimensional cutting tasks can be accomplished in a single set of prompts. We are experienced in machining different materials including steel, tool steel, aluminum, zinc, stainless steel, brass and plastic to produce all sorts of products such as mechanical parts, kitchenware, beverage container so forth so on. 4 or 5-axis machines are also available to meet customer’s customized demands. All materials can be drilled or tapped according to component’s design.
What we can process:
Drilling & Tapping
Drilling is a cutting process that uses a drill bit to cut a hole of circular cross-section in solid materials. The drill bit is usually a rotary cutting tool, often multi-point. The bit is pressed against the work-piece and rotated at rates from hundreds to thousands of revolutions per minute. This forces the cutting edge against the work-piece, cutting off chips from the hole as it is drilled.
While tapping is the process of cutting a thread inside a hole so that a cap screw or bolt can be threaded into the hole. Also, it is used to make thread on nuts. Tapping can be done on the lathe by power feed or by hand. Regardless of the method, the hole must be drilled with the proper size tap drill and chamferred at the end. All materials can be tapped and drilled according to component’s design.
Punch Pressing & Bending
Punch press machines are used to cut holes in material as well, with selection of both manual operated or CNC operated machines with multi-station turret and hold a much larger and complex die available for processing different sizes of work-piece.
Bending is a process by which metal can be deformed by plastically deforming the material and changing its shape. The material is stressed beyond the yield strength but below the ultimate tensile strength. Bending machine is usually applied for this process, we have experiences in producing stainless steel metal sheets, railing for mechanical parts, coffee machine components with such technique.

Grinding & Centerless Grinding
Grinding is a machining process of abrading the job surface material by means of a rotating abrasive wheel to provide high dimensional accuracy and a fine surface finish. To grind means to abrade or to wear away by friction or to sharpen. In grinding the material is removed by means of a rotating abrasive wheel. The wheel is made up of a large number of cutting tools constituted by projected abrasive particles in the grinding wheel.
Centerless grinding differs from centered grinding operations in that no spindle or fixture is used to locate and secure the work-piece; the work-piece is secured between two rotary grinding wheels, and the speed of their rotation relative to each other determines the rate at which material is removed from the work-piece.
