Given its micro-precision, versatility and range of material options, custom CNC machining increasingly is indispensable to a wide range of industries. Nowhere is that truer than applications involving human life—where even a small error could prove deadly.

Among the industries that rely heavily on custom CNC small parts machining: aerospace, defense, electronics and medical.


From landing gear to electrical connectors, custom CNC machined parts are used throughout the aerospace industry given the extremely tight tolerances required for safety. Manufacturers also routinely rely on low-volume custom CNC machining services for design validation and testing prototypes demanded by evolving technologies.

Given the extreme conditions in which these parts operate—excessive pressure, currents and speeds—the wide range of durable material options make custom CNC machining ideal for numerous precision aerospace applications.


The quick turnaround time of custom CNC machined parts allows manufacturers across the defense sector to innovate and keep up with the latest in fast-changing technologies—explaining its heavy use throughout the industry.

Among the applications:

  • Communications
  • Electronics
  • Transportation
  • Stealth technology

Lightweight engineered thermoplastics are highly prized for their ability to withstand harsh conditions without the risk of corrosion, particularly in naval applications. But a wide range of durable materials are used throughout the sector.


The smaller the part, the tighter the required tolerance—making CNC machining essential for electronics manufacturing. To perform, small and miniature electronics components require error-free micro-machining, achievable only through the intersection of CAD software and robotics.

Among the uses of custom CNC small parts machining:

  • Hardware
  • Housings
  • Printed circuit boards
  • Semiconductors


Medical parts and components are subject to the strictest regulations given even the slightest error could have serious consequences. Custom CNC small parts machining is used throughout the medical industry for its micro-precision and range of material options. Every implement and device used in a medical setting must be sterilizable or disposable.   

Custom CNC small parts machining is found through the medial industry. Among the applications:


  • Stents
  • Pacemakers
  • Artificial body parts
  • Drug-delivery systems


  • Surgical scissors
  • Biopsy tubes
  • Forceps
  • Scalpels
