Horizontal CNC Machining Centers
Horizontal milling machines power-driven machine used for the complex shaping of metal and other materials to manufacture parts by holding and moving cutting tools on a horizontal axis. Unlike vertical milling machines, they also use a rotary table (universal tables) that allows them to make contact at multiple angles. Horizontal milling machines are able to perform heavier, deeper cuts than vertical milling machines. Because of the versatility of horizontal mills, they tend to be more expensive than vertical mills. Milling machines may be operated manually or under computer numerical control (CNC).
Vertical CNC Machining Centers
Vertical milling machines have the spindle axis vertically oriented so the cutting tools move on a vertical axis. Vertical milling machines can plunge cut and drill from the front, side, or from above, as long as the tools move there vertically. There are several subcategories of vertical mills that include the bed mill and the turret mill. Vertical milling machines are most commonly used to form 1D shapes.
Swiss Turning Centers
Swiss-Style Turning Machines, that is Swiss turning refers to a specialized process for machining small-diameter high-precision turned parts thus enabling long production runs. The Swiss-style machine uses a sliding headstock that feeds bar stock through a guide bushing in the Z-axis past the stationary cutting tool. A Swiss-style lathe can hold long, slender workpieces to tighter tolerances with less vibration and tool deflection and enables hard turning when applicable.
Mill Turn Centers
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining or milling, sometimes called CNC turning machines is a CNC precision machining process that manufacturers most often use to engrave materials. High-speed milling, cutting, drilling, grinding, tapping, deep-boring, finishing, anodizing, heat treating, lapping, stress-relieving, and polishing may all be accomplished by special CNC equipment. Describes as CNC turning because the machine rotates as it works. CNC milling machines work well for engraving because they engage turning machine tools, like cutters and conical tools, on multiple axes at once. Manufacturers can perform CNC turning quickly without sacrificing quality.
CNC Lathe Centers
CNC lathes are machines workpieces by shaping the material as they rotate the drive, which turns the piece being manufactured. They can wield a number of different machine tools at once, such as drills and cutters. Older CNC lathe models use two axes, but newer lathes use more, allowing manufacturers to take on more complex projects.
The high-level metrology equipment utilized at D&D Enterprises of Greensboro, Inc. USA, undergoes a continuous improvement strategy of review, development, and maintenance. Our equipment uses state-of-the-art advanced technology to maintain quality. We produce precision production parts with precise geometric dimensional accuracy and tolerance. Products include production measuring machines, bridge-type measuring machines, horizontal-arm measuring machines, large measuring machines, and optical measuring machines.
Specialized Inspection Equipment
D&D Enterprises specialized inspection equipment includes Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Methods and inspection. In-house certified Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) allows for fast processing of critical components requiring high-level inspection. We also provide Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI), Eddy Current Testing (ECT), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Visual Nondestructive Testing (Borescope), and Thermograph Nondestructive Testing (NDT).
