Despite the changes in industrialization and global incorporation most of the world sees today, many parts of the manufacturing industry are still quite diversified. Custom manufacturing in particular is comprised of many different companies ranging from home-garages to multi-branch facilities. Because there are so many skilled custom manufacturers, the industry is highly competitive, and companies must continue to improve and update systems, equipment, and technology to hold their place.
MultiSource Manufacturing is committed to hold our own in this industry and strives to produce high-quality parts designed and built in-house and deliver excellent customer care at every step in the process of custom manufacturing.
Because CNC precision machining is an integral part involved in the process of MultiSource custom manufacturing, it’s critical that the way we perform that operation adheres to tried and true practices.
The MultiSource network has six locations across Minnesota and Colorado, each facility follows the same practices for quality CNC precision machining in the production of reliable custom parts.
Best MultiSource Machining Practices
- Invent: To successfully machine a part that precisely fits customer specifications, our engineering team utilizes advanced prototype software and imaging systems to design a cutting pattern. This pattern will provide our CNC machines with the most efficient program to lathe, mill, and machine a part.
- Instruct: Our engineering teams will then instruct a CNC machining center to follow the design of the cutting pattern. This involves programming the designated geometry and pattern into CNC software.
- Select: Our facilities host a wide range of 140 CNC machines with 3-axis and 5-axis indexed milling. Selecting the appropriate tools for the machining of a part is critical to successful production. Our machinists and engineers have a deep understanding of which mills, lathes, and turning machines will offer the most efficient and reliable cutting depending on the part.
- Monitor: Our CNC precision machining centers may be automated but continued human monitoring of the process is an important practice that should never be disregarded. On each MultiSource floor, operations are continuously monitored for worker safety and to prevent production mishap.
- Record: When a machining operation is complete, our engineers, technicians, and machinists all take part in thorough recording and analyzing of the data our CNC software provides as well as quality inspection of machined parts.
- Communicate: Throughout the full production process our team is also communicating with customers to continue understanding their needs and provide consistent information about part design, production, and assembly.
