Machining services have come a very long way over the years. Numerically controlled machining service was first devised in the middle of the last century. This rudimentary sort of machining service relied on punched tape to drive the machine. This kind of primitive programming was a grand evolution from old-style cam-driven machining service. Cams not unlike those used inside elaborate cuckoo clocks enabled a person with a small machine to manufacture many copies of the same item. At the time, this sort of machining service was considered entirely modern. Today, machining service is done primarily with computers by way of CAD and CAM systems.
Computer-aided design, or CAD, and computer-aided manufacturing, or CAM, has changed everything about the way things are designed and manufactured. While there will always be a special niche for handcrafted items, some things are not practically made by human hands. Items such as automotive, aircraft and aerospace parts must be precision made to exact measurements. It is in no way feasible for one human to turn out dozens, hundreds or even thousands of items. A competent machining service can provide you with as many precision copies of almost anything you need. To get an idea of the things we can make, please see our Job Gallery.
