CNC Machining Services

Manual and CNC Machining

With superb precision and mechanical properties, machining is an excellent method for manufacturing complex tooling, long-lasting parts or high-quality prototypes.

RapidMade offers expert manual and CNC machining services for a wide range of metals and plastics, as well as other materials like wood and composites. Our prototyping services have no order minimums, and we are able to expedite manufacturing for time-sensitive projects.

If your production requires fine details and tight tolerances delivered with top-notch accuracy and industrial strength, machining may be the right technology for you.

A Material Difference

Machining is compatible with an extensive range of materials, from plastic and metal to wood and composites. RapidMade offers multiple grades of steel, stainless steel and aluminum, as well as specialty metals like titanium, inconel and tool steel. Machinable plastics include ABS, acetal, acrylic, urethane, HDPE, UHMW, PEEK and many more.

With so many material options available, machined products can meet just about any mechanical or aesthetic requirements your project may have.

Machining vs. 3D Printing

When working with metals, machining is almost always preferable to printed metal. It offers a wider range of materials, better finishing and is generally less than a quarter of the price. It is also an excellent solution for complex tooling like injection molds.

Plastics are a bit more complicated. Machined plastic is typically more expensive, requires longer lead times and has more design limitations than 3D printing, especially compared to the HP Multi Jet Fusion. However, machining works with a larger variety of plastics than 3D printing. If the material you need is not printable, machining is an excellent alternative.

Micah Chaban, VP of Sales and Marketing

Hi! Micah here – I am a founder of RapidMade, our Vice President of Sales and Marketing and a 15 year manufacturing industry veteran. I personally handle all machining quotes, orders and customer relationships. I am at your disposal day or night and am our top technical expert on staff.

I consider a chief differentiator of RapidMade is its sales team. We put empowered technical experts such as myself up front on projects to make sure from the outset that your products are shepherded through the complicated process of custom manufacturing with care and accountability. Most of our competitors will put junior level staff in sales positions who have little knowledge of the process or influence to get things done for you.

You have my word that I will personally review all incoming projects – your CAD and drawings, ask the tough questions and provide honest feedback. I will provide an extremely detailed and thorough quote up front that defines your project and our commitments to you. I will personally make sure your project is delivered on time and with industry leading quality from start to finish.

We at RapidMade are proud of our work and look forward to your toughest challenges!
