Advanced Machining

3 Axis

Features and threaded holes from any side, contoured surfaces from the top or back side, and 1mm (0.04in) minimum inside corner radius. 

Advanced CNC Machining

MPD's advanced machining allows for features on more sides of the part. We cut form jaws to hold the part accurately for additional setups. 

Select our "Tight Tolerance" service to get inspected features for holes, pockets, threads, and other basic geometry within the part.
