Milling, manufacturing process through shavings removal

Milling, manufacturing through shavings removal, which allows obtaining mechanical parts by rotating shaping machinery and keeping the part fixed by vises and clamps. Shaped parts can be obtained also with very complex profiles.

Meccanica Precisa, in terms of milling, uses 3 and 5 axis CNC with computer numerical control, which diverge from the traditional milling machines for the possibility to program on machinery border or by Cad Cam software.

This kind of programming (CAD CAM), preferred by Meccanica Precisa, allows making very complex manufacturing using the 5 axis technology both in positioning and in continuous.

The positioned 5 axis manufacturing allows the execution of a piece through a unique positioning in which it is possible to work 5 faces at the same time without intervention of the operator with position of milling, drills, threads, tapping, etc., made always compared with the zero piece.

All that guarantees an extreme precision in the position of the manufacturing on the different faces.

The 5 axis manufacturing in continuous allows the execution of shaped parts for which it is necessary to interpolate the 5 axis at the same time.

This kind of manufacturing allows the realization of parts such as propellers, blades and helicoidal locking systems etc., which would not be realizable with 3 axis machineries.


The use of this technology brings three vantages:


The 3 axis CNC machines represent the first evolution in comparison with the traditional milling machines, because they use the three axis to intervene on the part during the manufacturing process: X,Y,Z.

This technology is very often used for the combined manufacturing processes, which expect, in any case, a passage of the piece through different workstations.

A 5 axis CNC works contemporary on 5 distinct axis: X, Y, Z and two rotation axis A and B/C. Basically, the 5 sides of the piece are worked at the same time by a unique programming.



EN9100: an essential warranty for AS&D sector

In 2019 we completed all the necessary procedures to obtain International ISO 9001 and EN9100 certification. This achievement opens the door to new opportunities and new industrial sectors such as aeronautical, space and defense (AS&D), by guaranteeing high quality production standards.

AS/EN 9100

AS/EN 9100 quality certification is an essential standard for aircraft construction and all related systems, components and equipment.

The standard includes the same requirements as ISO 9001 and moreover all the specific prerequisites of the aeronautical sector such as quality, safety, reliability, standardization and repeatability, guaranteeing a standard process for every areas of the supply chain.

After more than 15 years of hard working, we wanted to increase the value of our skills and our professionalism, offering a high-quality standard production even to the most demanding customers.

Furthermore, this certification requires mandatory and controlled procedures for the components production, guaranteeing standard and repeatable cycles



Meccanica Precisa factory is equipped with 5 axis CNC machineries: the productions can be followed in controlled manner, with the presence of an operator, or in not controlled manner through robotic pallet change. Meccanica Precisa machinery inventory, therefore, hosts 5 axis CNC machineries, also palletized.
