CNC Machining

From challenging tolerances to considerable complexity, Jackson Machine & Manufacturing offers the most flexibility and capability to give manufacturers components, parts, and prototypes needed to keep a business productive and profitable.

Why Jackson Machine & Manufacturing?

Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) machining replaced manual machine methods decades ago to provide a computer-controlled, high-precision way to produce parts. Controlled by a programming language, we can provide a wide array of tasks, faster and with greater precision, to give manufacturers the parts they need faster and to a higher quality.

Jackson Machine & Manufacturing can help to streamline the manufacturing process.

  • Greater efficiency through automation and continuous production
  • Improved accuracy of every detail to produce identical parts, increased precision, and unnecessary waste
  • Increased product quality with even the most challenging of raw materials to meet deadlines and control cost
  • Enhanced overall operational efficiency by outsourcing the skills and machine investment to focus on specific production demands

Applications and Materials

From fittings to ball joints, housing to valves, we can create virtually any type of part or component required using an almost limitless array of materials. Jackson Machine and Manufacturing is available to meet all of our customers’ machining needs.

Because of our CNC accuracy, the process is used for many applications where parts must be placed within complex equipment or are used in challenging environments.  Jackson Machine & Manufacturing can handle the fabrication of tiny parts and components as easily as it can fabricate from large sheet metal.

Materials chosen for CNC machining depend entirely on application and customer specification. By selecting the right material, we can deliver optimum results. Buyers should consider the elements of the component required to determine the ideal material choice:

  • Identify how the part will be used
  • Determine if the end-application is for an indoor or outdoor environment
  • Ascertain the expected stress load and capacity, and weight load
  • Specify fastening requirements
  • Determine tolerances of all dimensions

Common material families used in CNC machining include metals and alloys, plastics, wood, and foam.

Machining Processes

There are many different types of CNC machines for precision parts production, including these common types:

  • CNC Milling: A common type of CNC machine, the CNC mill uses a different number of axes depending on the complexity of the part, and the cutting tools move while the raw material or stock remains fixed.
  • CNC Turning and Lathe: With similar operating properties, a CNC turning center or CNC lathe is an automated operation that moves around the material to provide cutting, boring, turning, and facing. Both are capable of almost limitless CNC configurations.
  • CNC Punch Press: Whether a single head or multi-tool design, a CNC punch press is automated to punch a hole or form into a piece of sheet metal. The hole punched can be simple or complicated in design to produce shapes, dimples, plunging or enclosure designs.
  • CNC Shearing: Known as die cutting, CNC shearing is a precision process used for a range of metals, sheet metal sizes, and material thicknesses to deliver a finished piece or preparing a sheet metal part for further fabrication.

Jackson Machine & Manufacturer has the ability to provide complex, critical, and precision products through our CNC machining capabilities to deliver the parts needed at the highest quality, affordable prices, and on-time delivery.
