CNC Turned Prototypes
Rapid Prototype CNC Turning
Bring your ideas to life quickly! Product designers sourcing prototype quantities of machined parts often face tight deadlines. Pioneer Service understands this and is uniquely positioned to meet your needs for quick delivery of prototype machined parts as well as offer you valuable insight on the manufacture-ability of your part.
Pioneer Service is able to provide precision turned parts fast because we keep you informed every step of the way and we have dedicated equipment for prototype CNC turning. You’ll find that we work hard to meet your expectations for prototype work of turned parts and precision machined components. We’re ready to provide you with the delivery, quality, pricing and most important, the communication needed to delivery parts quickly.
When you’re ready, we can help you think beyond the small quantities, and discuss the best options for production quantities as well. Contact us, and let’s begin a productive partnership helping you with CNC turned prototypes!
If your part is .060″ to 8″ (1.5 mm to 203 mm) outer diameter, it may be a good fit for our CNC turning equipment.
What is CNC Turning?
CNC Turning is the manufacturing process in which bars of material are held in a chuck and rotated while a tool is fed to the piece to remove material to create the desired shape. If the center has both turning and milling capabilities, such as the one above, the rotation can be stopped to allow for milling out of other shapes. Turning parts on CNC turning centers allows for a wide range of complexities, sizes, and material types.
For complex parts diameter with tight tolerances, our Swiss screw machines offer:
- Alloy Steels (4130, 4140)
- Aluminum (2011 6061-T6, 2024)
- Bronze Alloys
- Carbon Steel (12L14, 1215)
- Stainless Steel (303, 304, 316, 321, 303SE, 420, 440C, 17-4)
- ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
- Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics
- Polycarbonate (Delrin®)
- Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)
- Polyphenylene Sulfide
- PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene)
- PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
- PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride)
One design engineer, when asked about his challenges with sourcing prototype CNC machined parts told us:
“We expect to have a partnership with our suppliers. I’ve stopped working with suppliers because they didn’t keep me updated with changes each step of the way. I’m most impressed when a supplier calls me to offer suggestions on a part.”
Frequent and effective communication is at the top of the priority list to ensure our customers’ parts are delivered to print as quickly as possible.
