Multi-axis CNC machining from Rayco combines the precision of computer-controlled fabrication with the efficiency of a single setup and shorter tooling. Because there’s no need for operators to perform repetitive tasks, you’ll also enjoy the benefits of shorter cycle times and greater repeatability. In addition, multi-axis machining improves surface finish since the tool moves tangentially across the part’s surface. Plus, because we’re investing in the future, Rayco is implementing a robotic arm for feeding bar stock.
With table sizes up to 120” x 35”, Rayco’s machining capabilities support virtually unlimited lengths. CAD/CAM programming using SolidWorks and MasterCAM is built-in, and Rayco provides the vertical and horizontal machining services that you need from prototyping to production. We also offer CNC turning along with water jet cutting and metal finishing and plating.
CNC vertical machining at Rayco uses vertically-oriented tools that approach the workpiece from above. It’s ideal for flatwork, especially for the high-precision production of machined metal parts. With Rayco’s 4-axis vertical machining center (VMC), cutting occurs while the fourth axis (A-axis) rotates. This rotation allows the VMC to cut the workpiece around the B-axis, which can be used as a milling spindle.
CNC turning at Rayco holds and rotates bar stock while a cutting tool removes material to create the desired shape. Whether the bars are round, square, or hexagonal, Rayco is ready to provide the turned parts you need. Applications for our fast, accurate CNC turning services include aircraft landing gear, turbine engine parts, and engine and transmission components.
Prototype CNC machining creates samples or small batches of parts before full-scale production begins. The advantages of prototype machining are many and include the ability to review and refine your design for manufacturability. Rayco’s machined prototypes can be made from various materials, but that’s just part of the reason that designers choose our prototype machining service.
Production machining produces high volumes of parts quickly and accurately. From multi-axis aircraft machining to precision medical components, Rayco of Schenectady has the production machining services that you need along with a demonstrated commitment to quality.
