Exotic Alloy Metal CNC Machining Services

Exotic metals such as Inconel, Haynes, and Hastelloy are extremely difficult to machine as they are manufactured specifically for improved strength, wear resistance, high-temperature stability, or corrosion resistance. We utilize our advanced milling equipment to create components of complex geometries with high repeatability. Our AS9100 and ISO9001:2015 certified manufacturing processes have allowed us to become a premier CNC shop for industries requiring stringent quality regulations.

Miller CNC has the equipment and technical expertise to form high-quality, complex components from even the most resilient exotic alloys through advanced CNC metal machining.

Exotic Metal Machining Details & Considerations

Exotic metals, or “boutique” metals, are usually developed for a specific purpose, whether it is due to their high strength, high wear resistance, high-temperature stability, or extreme corrosion resistance. These metals generally have a carbon steel machinability of 20%. With these factors, exotic metals are generally challenging to machine. Often produced in small quantities, exotic alloys are more expensive than commonly used ones. Exotic metals include various nickel, cobalt, and chromium alloys, among others with more widely-used alloys, including Inconel®, Haynes®, Hastelloy®, Waspaloy®, Invar®, Kovar®, and Monel®.

Many manufacturers or CNC service providers may hesitate to perform exotic alloy machining because exotic metals are less widely used than more common metals such as stainless steel or carbon steel. At Miller CNC, we successfully utilize advanced machining technologies to fabricate products from various exotic alloys. We strive to provide the best services and exceed your project expectations. As metal CNC machining experts, we perform precision machining to suit your unique application needs.

Miller CNC’s Metal CNC Machining Capabilities

Over many years, Miller CNC has gained significant experience working with many exotic alloys and difficult-to-machine metals. We have developed reliable and efficient machining methods, including progressive 3-axis machining4-axis machining, and 5-axis machining. We offer the precision and accuracy needed for many mission-critical components that can’t be matched by our competitors.

5-Axis CNC Machining Services

With the capability to move all five axes simultaneously, 5-axis milling is well-suited for complex parts that could not be made with any other milling machine. 5-axis milling creates advanced, high-performance, mission-critical machined components without room for error. The exceptional functionality of 5-axis CNC milling centers means reduced set-up times and proven enhanced efficiency. Our 3-axis, 4-axis, and 5-axis centers allow us to CNC machine components up to 40 inches in length.

HyperMILL CAM Software

Our 5-axis CAM software with machine simulation allows all features to be machined in one setup without physically handling the part. This allows for more accuracy than any other milling machine can provide and ensures that your component is prototyped and manufactured under our ISO9001:2015 engineering processes.
