13-Axis Precision Turning & Milling

13-Axis Machining Process
13-Axis Machining Process

For production of complex parts in a single operational cycle, at E.T. Precision Optics Inc. we operate a Nakamura WTS-150 multitasking machining center that features 13 controlled axes and live tooling capabilities. Using this state-of-the-art equipment, we can produce parts from a single setup, which gives us superior dimensional tolerance control by eliminating the need to re-fixture. We can complete parts with complicated milling requirements while simultaneously producing the round features and drilling cross holes and slots that intersect with bores all to tolerances as close as ±.0002". In addition to significantly reducing the cycle time, this machine produces parts that are virtually burr-free. This ultra-precision equipment is supported by the latest CAD/CAM software that allows us to download the drawing files from anywhere in the world to streamline and simplify the machining process.

We have the knowledge and proficiency to machine an extensive selection of materials. Categories include standard metals, high-temperature alloys, as well as aerospace grades, including aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. We also machine many types and grades of commodity, engineering, and high-performance plastic polymers. As precision machining specialists, we leverage the latest technology metrology instruments, including fully featured CMM vision systems with scanning capabilities, to verify part accuracy.

With our high degree of precision and automation, we attain complex geometries, tight tolerances, and increased production efficiency. We have the capacity to meet the exacting demands of virtually any part, including those found in optical, medical, telecommunications, aerospace, and electronic components. Our services are ISO9001:2008 certified and AS9100 compliant, and with our lightning-fast turnaround, we keep pace with demanding production schedules. To manage your end-to-end production needs, we also offer a comprehensive range of additional services, including laser engraving, grinding, heat treating, and finishing.
