CNC Vertical Machining

South Bend Form Tool’s CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) vertical machining center machining process is used to remove material from a solid material of any shape, using a rotating cutter that moves around the part in multiple axes to the work piece mounted to a table or fixture. The cutting tools that are used in this automated process can be changed out automatically during the shaping of the part, to achieve the required depths and dimensions for the part.

CNC vertical machining centers are said to deliver repeated finished components at a faster production rate with optimum manufacturing accuracy. The automation of the CNC machining center has a higher level of dimensional control and tolerance in every piece, along with part consistency or uniformity, decreasing cycle times for all components produced in this method. The milling process can also be done manually, but cycle times and repeatability of will become the variables.

Our full service capabilities ensure the shortest delivery schedule possible.

We have the ability to receive and work with AutoCAD and SurfCam drawings.  We are also fully capable of receiving other source software such as Catia and converting them over to DWG or DXF files to be used on the production floor.

This process of file conversion allows our machine operators to program any of their CNC machining centers to produce the most elaborate parts in the shortest possible time.
