Precision Machining

CTS offers full-service CNC precision machining for all your customized components and parts.

Supported by our team of professionally certified engineers, our CNC machining processes utilize pre-programmed computer software to control the range of our complex machinery and factory tools, including grinders, lathes, mills, and routers. Our manufacturing processes work by leveraging the various functions of these machines to pre-program their behaviors such as speed, feed rate, and coordination to run in repetitive, predictable cycles to produce the desired cuts for your signature parts or components.
All of our CNC machining processes meet and exceed all industry-standard regulations and market requirements, providing you with cost-effective manufacturing solutions that drive real results. And with a dedicated team of specialists located at each of our enterprise facilities, we’ll work directly with you to develop a customized CNC machining solution that’s tailored perfectly for your project’s material needs, delivery timeframe, and logistics.

Precision Grinding

CTS also offers full-service CNC precision grinding to add the finishing touch to all your product’s finite parts and components.

Central to our core processes, our CNC grinding services leverage a variety of precision metal grinding techniques and abrasive subset cutting methods to remove small excess materials from your product—helping create custom finishes or tight tolerance dimensions on your application surfaces. Utilized for the hard-fine machining of parts, our automated grinding machines increase production performance during our finishing process and can achieve the highest material removal rates, yielding even shorter delivery times and satisfactory quality.

With a variety of metal grinding options available with varying benefits, selecting the proper application for your product isn’t always easy.

That’s why our team of professionally certified engineers and industry experts is here to help you choose a precision metal grinding process that’s right for your product. We’ll assist you in determining your part dimensions compatibility with specific grinding processes, your part’s tolerance, and impact on its functionality, your production and capacity needs, and the desired surface quality you’re looking to achieve.

And with automated loading facilities available nationwide, our dedicated team of manufacturing specialists will work directly with you to deliver a modern, efficient finish for all your parts and components.
