CNC Machining 

Our state-of-the-art CNC machining tools and experienced engineers are your gateway to high-quality components, rapid prototypes, and innovative solutions across diverse industries.

An Important Tool In Prototyping

Despite the tremendous advances in 3D Printing, CNC machining is still an important tool in the modern prototype/model making establishment.

There are many situations where CNC Machining is still the best approach to creating a 3D model prototype. Whether your material of choice is not available via 3D printing or machining is still the best for timing and/or cost constraints; MNL’s technology consultants will advise your best solution.

The Synergy of CNC Machining and 3D Printing:

In some cases, combining CNC machining and 3D printing unlocks the ultimate prototyping recipe. For instance:

3D print a rough model for initial concept testing, then refine it with CNC machining for a more robust and accurate prototype.

Utilise 3D printing for intricate organic shapes, while relying on CNC machining for high-precision mechanical components.

Latest CNC Processes

Combining the latest CNC machining and turning processes with proprietary technology to deliver high quality, on-demand parts, Malcolm Nicholls Limited (MNL) offers a full subcontract CNC machining service nationwide.

Regardless of size, complexity or quantity, we have a choice of processes to produce your CNC machined components.
