Southern Spring provides top-notch CNC machining services

CNC Machining & Swiss Screw Machining

Southern Spring and Stamping Inc. provides top-notch CNC machining services.

Vertical milling centers with pallet changers along with CNC Swiss screw machine with bar feeder to run lights out. Long accurate rods and threads to stainless 316 heavy duty parts up we offer a broad range of CNC machining capabilities for parts up to 40 inches in length and 20 inches in height in prototype to full-scale production volumes, including low volume and short, small, and large runs. And we can machine anything required for a full assembly, blanking out the part with our laser, machining and sheetmetal  operations then over to our in-house powdercoat line to create a turnkey full assembly.

Our 4-axis capabilities and customized programming tools enable us to machine all the required features of a component from a single setup. Our CNC machining capabilities, along with our highly skilled and trained workforce, allow us to provide clients with exceptionally fast turnaround and consistent quality components manufactured from a range of metals, including stainless steel, aluminum, aircraft alloys, copper, and many more.

To learn more about our capabilities or to request a quote for your project, contact us today.

Our newest addition is our cutting-edge in-house Swiss machining capability. The machine can work on both sides of bar stock at the same time and drop a finished part with no human interaction. We literally just load the bar feeder. This allows for lights-out production 24/7, maximizing throughput and reducing turnaround times. Our advanced machines tackle complex geometries and tight tolerances with precision, making them ideal for intricate parts. Whether you require high-volume production runs or smaller batches, think swiss at Southern.

Type of metals

Some common metals we can machine (but are not limited to):
 

Aluminum

Stainless steel

Copper Alloys

Aircraft alloys
Carbon Steel
Brass
Hastelloy
Titanium

What’s more impressive is that CNC machining is designed for repeatable production, meaning we can deliver your product on time and with high precision. We’ll also provide additional services to furnish your orders, such as metal finishing, heat treating, and grinding.

Types of CNC Machining Operations

Here at Southern Spring and Stamping Inc., we have a variety of CNC machining operations available for our customers to choose from. And we can also provide the right option, which depends on the type of component that will be manufactured.

The most common CNC machining operations available:

  • Milling: which removes material from the workpiece using a multi-point cutting tool. Its capabilities include face milling and peripheral milling.

  • Boring: is an operation where a hole is enlarged or machined to its exact size.

  • Drilling: involves creating a hole in the workpiece with a rotating tool called multi-point drill bits.

We can also create complex thread profiles and internal forms on workpieces measuring up to 40.0″ in length x 20.0″ in height. With our custom solution, you can receive the best solution to keep your operations successful.

Here's a breakdown of the key aspects of CNC machining:

  • Control: It relies on pre-programmed computer software and code (G-code) to instruct the movements of various machines.

  • Precision and Complexity: This enables highly precise and repeatable machining, allowing for the creation of intricate and complex shapes.

  • Material Versatility: CNC machining can work with a broad range of materials, including metals, plastics, and wood.

  • Manufacturing Applications: It's widely used across numerous industries, including aerospace, automotive, and medical device manufacturing.

  • Process: It uses pre-programmed software and code (G-code) to control a variety of machines, such as mills, lathes, and grinders.

  • Advantages: This allows for high precision, repeatability, and the ability to create complex shapes.

  • Materials: It can be used with a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, and wood.

  • Applications: CNC machining is used in many industries, including aerospace, automotive, and medical device manufacturing.

Here's a comparison to 3D printing, another common manufacturing process:

  • CNC machining is subtractive, removing material from a solid block.

  • 3D printing is additive, building up layers of material to create a part.

  • Boring

  • Counterboring

  • Countersinking

  • Drilling

  • Facing

  • Internal forming

  • Milling

  • Parting or cutting

  • Pocketing

  • Profiling

  • Reaming

  • Tapping

  • Thread milling
