What is Precision Machining?

As a designer or purchaser, you’re most likely familiar with computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining, but what is precision machining? The definition is right in the name—a precision machinist takes a piece of raw material and shaves it down to the desired and specified shape—while making parts, tools or more—while measuring and cutting to the exact specifications. Our team combines this focus on precision with a dedication to client satisfaction to ensure second-to-none service.

Our Services and Capabilities

At DFF, we leverage a vast array of precision CNC machines and are capable of handling client projects of all sizes, with a specialty in higher volume quantities. Currently, our equipment includes:

  • More than 100 CNC machine centers with vertical, horizontal, 5-axis, milling and turning capabilities
  • Robotic cells: industrial robots to increase productivity and lower labor costs
  • Flexible machining systems
  • An extensive tool room with milling, lathe machines and more

We are always growing; if your project requires precision machinery that we don’t already have, we can invest in new equipment to ensure we get the job done. Because of this dedication, we are always learning to meet the needs of our ever-evolving clients.

For example, we recently worked with a global leader in the semiconductor industry, to produce high vacuum chambers. In order to get the job done, we needed to purchase helium leak detection equipment to ensure the chambers were properly sealed. We purchased the equipment, enhancing our own capabilities, and the parts we produced stood up to strict testing criteria and excelled in real-world testing. That defines our commitment to precision machining.

A Partner You Can Trust

In addition to machining, we also specialize in design assistance, meaning our engineering design professionals can examine your project and make efficiency and cost improvement recommendations to your process.
