Frequently Asked Questions

It makes sense to make precision parts on a manual machine when the quantity is low, for example, when making prototypes from a material that can’t be 3D printed.

Since no programming is required, and quantities are generally smaller, manual machining can be an excellent option for quick-turn parts. Request a quote or contact the Sales Manager for details.
