CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Machining is when pre-programmed computer software controls the movement of tools in machinery. There are many tools available for CNC machines, allowing for a wide range of processes, features and finishes for any given project. These tools remove layers of a material from a stock piece and produces a uniquely designed part. This includes processes like drilling, milling, turning, grinding and more. The CNC process is effective for a wide range of materials and can be automated, allowing for high precision and accuracy. CNC Machining is considered a subtractive manufacturing process, since material is removed from the stock piece. CNC is a great option for many manufacturers looking for consistency and quality.
Wisconsin Metal Parts, Inc.’ CNC machining services feature personalized customer service for made-to-order parts and components.
We offer turning, milling, drilling, tapping, boring, and grinding for a variety of materials. We have sub-spindle and live tooling turning capabilities with bar feeding capacity to 3” diameter, a swing of 25.60”, and can turn parts up to 40” long x 14.30” in diameter. Our high-speed vertical and horizontal machining centers produce accurate and efficient machined parts for many industries. Part sizes can reach up to 64” x 34” x 30” for vertical milling and 24”x 24” x 28” for horizontal milling. Our state-of-the-art machinery handles 3- and 4-axis machining while attaining production tolerances to ± .0002”. Other services include pre-production prototypes, engineering and design capabilities and in-house tool, gage and fixture building.

Typically, we work with castings like aluminum, zinc, steel, and stainless steel. We also work from billet in aluminum, steel, stainless, copper, brass, bronze, tool steels, extrusions and machine some plastics.
Our lead time is an average of 3-4 weeks, but times depend on the complexity of the parts, subcontracting and material availability. We can give you a better delivery estimate if we can see a part drawing first.
Blanket orders are also an option that allow us to plan and work ahead so we can get the parts to you exactly when you need them. Blanket orders can also cut costs by reducing setup times and material costs.
Production orders can range from 10 -10,000 pieces. Smaller prototyping orders can be made in our tool room if it is a good fit for both parties.
Depending on the application, we can machine to part tolerances of +- .0005 inch
There are many ways to make a single part. Send us your drawings and Wisconsin Metal Parts can find you the most cost-effective way to make your part with our many capabilities.
Our variety of machines include Vertical and Horizontal CNC mills, Sub-Spindle and CNC turning centers with live tooling.
We have up to 4-axis capabilities
Milling - Our largest machine travel is 34 x 64”
Turning – 3” through spindle capacity
The main cost driver is setup time. Having blanket orders in place that allow us to minimize setups is one way to help control those costs. Proper tolerancing is another factor. Asking for tight tolerances to be held only where they are needed will also help control costing.
