We provide a knowledge base and service range matched by few machining specialists.

Machining a die casting creates precise calculations down to the thousandths.

CWM’s Leadwell MV-50i uses solid
carbide tooling and custom long reach
holders to mill, drill, ream, bore and tap
a variety of features in the die casting - many of which are critical to function
with tight positional tolerances

CWM has a conventional machining center that drills, reams, and taps die castings where needed.

CWM’s conventional machining center
drills, reams and performs tapping operations all at the same time.  

CNC machining takes careful engineering and design when dealing with tolerances for a die casting.

A die cast part utilizes a CNC machining center that has pre-loaded design instructions.  

CWM offers both conventional and CNC machining capabilities.

Depending on your requirements, we can customize a machining process to meet your specifications and budget.
