Small batch cnc machining

In general, CNC machining are all need large quantities of orders, because most of the CNC machining supplier come from China, long distance transportation, may produce high logistics costs, these costs are need to split the product, it will reduce your profits, and most of the suppliers are not willing to provide small batch of CNC processing service, However, if you only need rapid prototyping CNC machining orders are not enough, you can find suppliers that support small volume CNC machining services.

Where can I find small batch CNC machining service?

If you need small batch CNC machining services, then you can contact JTC, JTC CNC machining Center, can provide small batch CNC machining, rapid prototyping, 3D printing prototyping, mold manufacturing, injection molding, sheet metal processing and other services, we were founded in 2008 in Shenzhen, China, is a technology innovative enterprise. Committed to providing one-stop service for foreign customers, we have more than 7000 square meters of factory, a number of CNC lathes, 3D printers, vacuum molding machines, injection molding machines and other equipment, nearly 300 technical personnel, 24/7 to provide services for customers. Small batch CNC processing services are also our service content, if you need to provide small batch CNC processing services, then you can contact us.


What is small batch CNC machining?

First, you need to understand what CNC machining is. CNC machining stands for computer numerical control. This is a computerized manufacturing process in which pre-programmed software and code control the movement of production equipment. CNC machining controls a range of complex machines, such as grinders, lathes and lathes, all of which are used to cut, shape and create different parts and prototypes. Day after day, CNC machinists combine elements of mechanical design, technical drawings, math and computer programming skills to produce a variety of metal and plastic parts. CNC operators can turn a piece of metal into critical aircraft or car parts and parts for various mechanical devices.

CNC machining is usually done in large quantities, so if you don't need a large quantity, you should look for suppliers who can provide CNC machining in small quantities, which is a quick prototype of CNC.



Small batch CNC machining need how much money?

CNC machine tools can manufacture parts for various industries and achieve very precise accuracy, so they are now widely used around the world. So what is the cost of CNC machining?  

The price of small batch CNC machining usually consists of several components

1. The amount of processing

2. The material

3. Product design

Surface treatment

5. Equipment to be used

Accurate quotation needs to be calculated according to the drawings provided by the customer and the material required by the customer and the quantity of production.

In general, the price of small-batch CNC processing will be higher than that of large-batch CNC processing, because the equipment maintenance costs generated in the production process are needed to be amortized to the workpiece, so the cost of a single workpiece of large-batch CNC processing will be lower, on the contrary, the cost of a single workpiece of small-batch CNC processing will be higher.

Different production materials will also lead to changes in the cost of small-batch CNC processing. For example, if the customer needs to produce a batch of screws of special size, the production cost of iron or copper will be different, which is caused by the material cost.

Normally, copper prices tend to be higher than iron. However, there are also special cases. For example, the production cost of some plastics with low material cost is higher than that of metals with high material cost. For some special materials, although they are cheap, the production process is more complicated and the production is more difficult, resulting in an increase in production cost.

Product design will also affect the cost of small-batch CNC processing. Some products with special design can not be completed by ONE-TIME CNC processing, requiring repeated CNC processing, which will also lead to an increase in the cost of small-batch CNC. In addition, complex designs may require the use of five-axis CNC machine tools for processing, which will increase costs accordingly. Because five-axis machines cost more.

Surface treatment can also affect the cost of small-batch CNC machining, as polishing, anodizing, painting, etc., all have corresponding costs.
