Elemet Manufacturing Inc. (EMI) is an industry leader in custom, large work envelope CNC machining services for prototyping and production parts runs.

Our experienced technical team works carefully to match our technology with your design needs and material requirements from start to finish. 

You can count on our CNC machine processes to meet the highest standards of quality and efficiency. EMI is an ISO 9001:2015 certified company.

CNC machining is a metal parts machining process that uses computer-guided systems to work on metal pieces and parts. The “CNC” stands for Computer Numerical Control, the code created based on 2D or 3D drawings. CNC allows our machines to work on sheet metal and formed metal workpieces with extreme accuracy.

Elemet Manufacturing uses advanced CNC technology.

For most of our client’s industrial parts, where complex geometry, precision, and cost-efficiency are critical, our 4-axis CNC machine systems deliver high-quality prototypes and products.  

A 3-axis CNC machine is a simple CNC machine where the workpiece is stationary, and a machining head with a cutting or drilling tool moves linearly. The machining head can move in three directions, horizontal or X-axis, vertical or Y-axis, parallel or Z-axis. 

What is a 4-axis CNC machine? It is a 3-axis CNC machine with an additional A-axis. The A-axis rotates the workpiece so that all 4 sides can be machined, including angles. There is no need for workpiece repositioning to change fixtures, so tighter tolerances and greater accuracy can be achieved.

What is a 5-axis CNC machine? The 5-axis CNC machine goes beyond the 4-axis CNC machine to add a rotational B-Axis and C-Axis. This CNC machine can only use 2 of the 3 rotational axes at a time, rotating either the workpiece or the machining head. 5-axis machining can produce complex 3D shapes and curved surfaces with compound angled features that no other machine can make.

We can handle your most challenging CNC Milling Needs.

The cutting tool moves around the workpiece in CNC milling, which remains fixed to a bed. A CNC milling machine is an all-purpose CNC machine that can handle almost any CNC machined part request. A 3-axis CNC milling machine is a simple 3 directional-axis machine where only the tool head moves in the X, Y, and Z axes. If 5-axis CNC milling machine work is needed, a 5-axis CNC machine can do it.

You can’t match our Turning and Threading capabilities.

In CNC turning and threading, the part stock turns on the spindle while the fixed cutting tool forms the workpiece. A more advanced CNC spinning lathe machine allows the rotating head to move around in multiple directions on the axis of CNC lathe machine. A CNC lathe machine is perfect for cylindrical parts.

Need a high-powered CNC cutting machine?

EMI provides laser CNC machine cutting with an optimal thickness range of 0.12″ to 0.4″ (or 3 to 10 mm). Our CNC laser cutting machine can cut aluminum, mild steel, and stainless steel.  When you need high-precision cutting, we can do it.
