Whatever you need prototypes or production parts, our machining services will be your best choice. Contact us today to get your machining parts done in as fast as 5 days!

CNC Milling


CNC milling is a subtractive process that using 3-, 4-, & 5-axis milling machines with various of cutting tools to remove materials from solid plastic and metal blocks into final parts with different geometries as designed.

CNC Turning


CNC turning is a more efficient method to manufacture round shaped components from plastic and metal bars or tubes, such as shafts, worms. Combines with live tooling, milled geometries can be done in the meantime.

CNC Drilling


Drilling is the cutting process in which the workpiece does not move, making the cutter move, aligning the cutter center with the hole center, and making the cutter rotate. CNC Drilling is primarily done on CNC machines including CNC milling machines and lathes.

CNC Finishes

The most popular and cost efficient way for inner functional components. This is the finishing option with the fastest turnaround. If you opt for as-machined finishing, your parts may be left with visible tool marks and potentially sharp edges and burrs, but we can remove these upon request.

Type II creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Parts can be anodized in different colors—clear, black, red, and blue are most common—and is usually associated with low silicone element series of aluminum. Type III is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance seen with Type II.

Polishing is to make the surface smooth by physical friction processing, it is often used to prevent corrosion and remove oxidation. After polishing, the parts have a smoother and brighter finish.

Bead blasting is the process of spraying abrasive on the surface of parts under high pressure, after sandblasting, the metal parts have a satin texture or frosted surface, eliminating the processing marks.

Electropolishing is the reverse process of electroplating, which simplifies the metal surface at the micro-level through chemical solution. After electropolishing, metal parts can be more bright and reduce surface roughness.

The black oxide is a chemical conversion coating, it is produced by a chemical reaction between iron and oxide salt in black oxide solution. The corrosion resistance of parts can be improved after black oxidation.

Tolerances

Description General Tolerance or Standard
Maximum Part Size Milled parts up to 80” x 48” x 24” (2,032 x 1,219 x 610 mm).
Distance Dimensions For features of size (Length, width, height, diameter) and location (position, concentricity, symmetry) +/- 0.005”.
Orientation and Form Dimensions 0-12″ +/- 0.005″, Angularity 1/2 degree. For 24″ and beyond please consult SIPX’s Manufacturing Standards.
Precision Tolerances SIPX can manufacture and inspect to tight tolerances per your drawing specifications including GD&T callouts.
Minimum Feature Size 0.020” (0.50 mm). This may vary depending on part geometry and chosen material.
Threads and Tapped Holes We can accommodate any standard thread size. We can also machine custom threads; these will require a manual quote review.
Surface Finish The standard finish is as-machined: 125 Ra or better. Additional finishing options can be specified when getting a quote.
Edge Condition Sharp edges will be broken and deburred by default. Critical edges that must be left sharp should be noted and specified on a print.
