Finding the right CNC machining partner can be difficult, especially with offshore and onshore options available. While these options can be hard to sift through, there are a few aspects to take into consideration. Our expert team has outlined the most important things to look for when looking for the right CNC machining partner for your business.

Do They Serve Your Industry?

Many critical industries require tight tolerances, so it is important to know that your CNC machining partner can handle the requirements of your industry. The aerospace, defense, and oil and gas industries require extremely tight tolerances to be met. Your manufacturer needs to pay close attention during the production process to ensure the proper functionality and safety of your products.

At Ensinger Precision Components, we have the equipment and experience needed to serve critical industries. We have been creating plastic components with tight tolerances for the aerospace, fluidics, industrial, medical, oil and gas, and semiconductor industries. With best-in-class equipment, we can easily machine critical components.

Do They Have All of the Services You Need?

With so many different CNC machining processes, it is important to choose a manufacturer with all of the processes you may need. It is a hassle to have multiple CNC machining partners to cover all of your needs, potentially causing issues with communication and time wasted in transportation.

At Ensinger Precision Components, we offer all of the CNC machining capabilities needed to complete all of your projects. Some of the extensive machining capabilities we offer include:

  • CNC Drilling — Used to machine holes into your products
  • CNC Broaching — The process of enlarging drilled holes and improving the finish of the product
  • CNC Boring —  Uses a rotating tool to enlarge holes in your products
  • CNC Milling — The process of flattening surfaces and creating grooves and other characteristics
  • CNC Tapping — Creates threaded holes for screws and bolts
  • CNC Reaming — Smooths existing holes and removes less material than drilling
  • CNC Turning — Shaping a part while it rotates in front of a cutting tool to specific shapes

Do They Offer Other Services?

There are many cases in which you will need more services than just CNC machining. Instead of wasting time and money finding another partner, you can partner with a manufacturing company that has all of the capabilities you need.

Ensinger Precision Components has numerous services in addition to our CNC machining capabilities. We help you from beginning to end — starting with engineering and design to fabrication and quality assurance. We can also create products and parts for you using our injection molding capabilities. Our team also has many other manufacturing capabilities in assembly, heat treating and annealing, deburring, labeling, inventory management, and more.

Can They Work With Various Materials?

Different projects require different materials. One project may require high-performance polymers while another requires engineering thermoplastics. The characteristics of each high-performance, engineering, and general industrial polymers vary, potentially changing the way they need to be manufactured. So, when looking for a CNC machining partner, it is important to consider what materials are necessary for your industry. This will help ensure your chosen partner has the capabilities needed to take on all of your projects.

At Ensinger Precision Components, we have experience working with various different high-performance, engineering, and general industrial polymers. Plus, if you aren’t sure what polymer is best for you, we can help you decide. Some of our options include: 

  • High-Performance PolymersCharacterized by their high strength, low flammability, and resistance to temperature, chemical, fatigue, and impact, these polymers are used for critical industries with stringent requirements. We commonly work with PEEK, Torlon, polyimide, PPS, polyetherimide, and more.
  • Engineering ResinsThese polymers are able to withstand strict mechanical and environmental demands while being more applicable than high-performance polymers. Ensinger Precision Components works with acetal, Nylon, polyesters, polycarbonate, polyurethane, PVDF, and more.
  • General Industrial PolymersThese polymers provide acceptable strength, flexibility, and impact resistance for industries such as consumer products, automotive, and medical. There are many types we work with, including but not limited to, polypropylene, polyethylene, ABS, and TPE.
