Our 5,000 square foot cnc machine shop features an
arsenal of precision equipment
(such as 5 axis Haas) to tackle the high volume Milling and Turning demands of todays market.
We specialize in quick turn precision machining. At
you get your parts fast and you get them right .
Combine our years of cnc machining
expertice with state of the art equipment and cutting edge software
and the result is AC's finely tuned manufacturing shop solution right
here in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Precision Milling or Turning or both
on one cnc machine is what we do best. To see some pictures of work
we have done in our shop, check out our cnc machining showcase
. This will give you an idea of the quality and precision you could
expect from .
We cut all materials like aluminum and plastics and more difficult to
machine materials like stainless steels, copper and Titanium with extreme
precision using CAD/CAM software as well as the newest cnc machine industry
tools and equipement. Our state of the art inspection guaranties your
parts meet your exacting tolerances. You can also check our events page to find out about latest shows and conferences in machining industry.

The introduction of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine radically
changed the manufacturing industry.
are as easy to cut as straight lines, complex 3-D structures
are relatively easy to produce, and the number of steps that
required human action have been dramatically reduced. With the
increased automation of manufacturing processes with precision
5 axis CNC machining, considerable improvements in consistency and
quality have been achieved in modern machine shops.
Automation reduces the frequency of errors and provides machine
shop operators with time to perform additional tasks. Automation
also allows for more flexibility in the way parts are held
in the manufacturing process and the time required to change
the machine to produce different components.
a sense, CNC machining represents a special segment of industrial
robot systems, as they are programmable to perform many kinds of machining
operations (within their designed physical limits, like other robotic
systems). CNC 5 axis machines machines can run over night and over weekends without
machine operator intervention. The ever changing intelligence of controllers
has dramatically increased machine shop cell production. Some machines
might even make 1000 parts on a weekend with no operator, checking each
part with lasers and sensors.
machining in practice:
In a production environment, a series of machines may be combined
into one station, commonly called a "cell", to progressively
machine a part requiring several operations. CNC machine today
is controlled directly from files created by CAM software packages,
so that a part or assembly can go directly from design to manufacturing
without the need of producing a drafted paper drawing of the
