3 & 5 Axis CNC Machining

Castek has numerous CNC machines for a variety of project sizes ranging from small envelop detail machining up to large 120” x 240” 5 axis CNC machining capabilities. Several new CNC machines have been added to the Castek machining arsenal over the past couple of years to provide accurate, dependable service for your projects. Keeping up with current machining technology, high spindle RPM’s and machine travel speeds allow fewer CNC machining hours and tighter tolerance on each and every mold we produce.

5 Axis CNC machining allows Castek to machine work pieces with challenging part shapes and deeper Z axis vertical walls that would be troublesome for conventional 3 Axis CNC machining. This provides a tighter tolerance and less post benching and polishing time required after machining.

Castek has CNC machines to accommodate numerous material types such as:

  • Wood and composite board  
  • Aluminum billet and aluminum castings
  • Tool steel

Castek’s complement of CNC machines are ready to assist with your project. Send us your data and one of our knowledgeable staff will get a quote to you right away.
