Com­pos­ite Cut­ter Tech­nol­o­gy, along with our strate­gic part­ner,  pro­vides pre­ci­sion machin­ing ser­vices to a vari­ety of indus­tries. Pre­ci­sion machin­ing is the removal of mate­r­i­al result­ing in a close tol­er­ance part. Close tol­er­ance and high qual­i­ty are cru­cial in pre­ci­sion man­u­fac­tur­ing.  Our mul­ti-axis work cells sup­ply the machin­ing nec­es­sary to pro­vide accu­rate parts for our cus­tomers. Let’s talk about your machin­ing needs, we can help.

Electrical Discharge Machining

EDM is the removal process where a thin wire is used to cut through con­duc­tive mate­ri­als such as poly­crys­talline dia­mond, poly­crys­talline cubic boron nitride, alu­minum, steel and car­bide. The sta­tion­ary work piece is sub­merged in deion­ized water and the wire is used to change the shape and size of the work piece. CNC Wire EDM machines are used at CCT with wire diam­e­ter as small as 0.002”. Our cur­rent equip­ment list con­tains 7 EDM machines, includ­ing CNC: 

Turning

Turn­ing is a machin­ing process where the work piece rotates and the cut­ting tool remains sta­tion­ary. Turn­ing is com­mon­ly used to describe remov­ing mate­r­i­al on the exter­nal sur­faces and bor­ing is com­mon­ly used to describe remov­ing inter­nal sur­face mate­r­i­al. The work piece can be reshaped and resized.   Both turn­ing and bor­ing are com­plet­ed on a CNC, com­put­er numer­i­cal con­trol, lathe. Our cur­rent equip­ment list includes 9 CNC turn­ing cen­ters, 5 axis, sub spin­dles, twin tur­ret, bar capac­i­ty .25″ – 2.75″, horse­pow­er up to 30 hp:

Milling

Milling is a machin­ing process where the work piece is sta­tion­ary and the cut­ting tool rotates and advances to remove mate­r­i­al.   End­mills, router and inserts are used to shape the mate­r­i­al to the close tol­er­ances not­ed on the prints. The work piece can be resized and reshaped using a CNC mill. Our cur­rent equip­ment list includes 21 ver­ti­cal machin­ing cen­ters, 4 axis, machine trav­els 20″ x 40″, horse­pow­er 3.5 — 25 hp:

Grinding

Grind­ing is the act of remov­ing mate­r­i­al by using abra­sive wheels to remove the mate­r­i­al on the work piece. The grind­ing wheel rotates and acts as a cut­ting tool while the work piece either rotates or remains sta­tion­ary depend­ing on the tool require­ments. Grind­ing leaves a high qual­i­ty sur­face fin­ish and close tol­er­ances. CCT uti­lizes with both CNC and man­u­al grind­ing machines. Our cur­rent equip­ment list con­tains 9 grind­ing machines includ­ing CNC, hydraulic and man­u­al oper­a­tion:
