20 foot CNC Machining Operations Available:
- Drilling – Produces holes in metal piece, up to 1.5″ in diameter.
- Plate, structural and rounds – CNC plasma cutting is a process of creating 2D shapes from sheet metal using a high temperature, high velocity stream of ionized gas.
- Tapping – produces internal threads in the product (up to M40 thread).
- Countersinking Allows screw heads to sink into the metal rather than protrude from the surface.
- Boring – Produces circular internal profiles in a hollow piece or on a hole made by drilling.
- Milling, Slotting – Common shapes include a straight slot (rectangular or square), or a keyway, locking slot that is curved on the end.
- Beveling – There are a number of critical issues to address when beveling, which is the process used to prepare metal for a welded seam. From the degree of the angle to the length of the bevel, it takes a skilled hand and the proper tools. At VeriForm, parts can be welded by adding a bevel on weld joint edges. Our bevellers include a Pullmax X97, Heck 9000 or Trumpf hand held units including the TKA 500 and the heavier duty TK1500.
