CNC Machining

CNC Machining


CNC machining (computer numerical control) is a manufacturing process that uses a software programme to guide a range of machine tools, rather than them being directly manipulated by human hand. There are different types of CNC machine processes, such as:

  • Milling
  • Sawing
  • Grinding
  • Lathing
  • Routing
  • Polishing and brushing
  • Filing and deburring


The advantages are many, including fast production, high precision, repeatability and affordability. One of the greatest benefits is the ability to produce complex 3D shapes that would be almost impossible to recreate using manual methods. The process can be used to build parts from many different materials, including metals (aluminium, brass, stainless steel, titanium, copper), acrylic, plexiglass, wood, basic plastics and engineered plastics.


SixDe offers a customised service that serves a wide variety of industrial manufacturing needs, including those within oil & gas, mining, automotive, construction, engineering and more. Partnering with our expert design team provides a reliable, affordable and efficient solution that addresses your unique manufacturing requirements.

CNC Milling


Primarily applied to construct parts for the oil & gas, power generation and mining industries, CNC milling uses a rotating cutting tool that moves through different axes. It’s used to form simple and complex geometries, including slots and holes. The process combines the functions of both turning and drilling, bringing speed, precision and accuracy to create parts in a wide variety of materials.


All are custom-designed – with highly complex parts being a SixDe specialty. Our bespoke service is suitable for small, medium and large batch run sizes, with the option of utilising our 3, 4 and 5-axis machines to best suit the intricacy of the required part/s.


From the drawing board to manufacture, the SixDe team has extensive experience in product development and component production. Our friendly team is available to discuss projects of all sizes. Get in touch today for a no-obligation consultation.

SixDe offers expertise, assured quality and cutting-edge techniques – not only for CNC machining processes, but other manufacturing elements, including EDM plunger/sinker, EDM wire cutting, CNC cutting and 3D printing.


At SixDe, our extensive industry knowledge, collaboration and customer service are just some of the reasons to entrust us with your manufacturing requirements. Get in touch today for a complimentary consultation.
