Micron Range Accuracy

High-precision machining covers various subtractive processes used to produce parts with tolerances in the single-digit micron range and with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.
At Décovi, we employ an equipment park of over 100 machines including multi-axis CNC milling and turning machines and multifunctional CNC centres. With this advanced machinery and the expertise of our highly skilled staff we are able to produce very complex cuts in a variety of materials and position ourselves as a trusted supplier of machined parts for many industries.

Latest Generation CNC Machining Equipment

High-precision machining requires the use of CNC machining equipment (Computer Numerical Control), meaning that the machining work is done with the help of a computer. A CNC machine operates according to the instructions in a CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) file, which is generated from a digital design file created by designers using CAD (computer-aided design) software.

Multi-axis CNC machines allow for simultaneous execution of multiple processes on a single part, saving time and increasing production accuracy, since a part can be accessed from multiple directions.

High Repeatability and Short Production Times

As mentioned, the primary advantage of using CNC machines is the high degree of accuracy and consistency of specific design execution. High accuracy required in parts with very tight tolerances and consistent product quality is essential in industries like medical, jewellery and watchmaking, aerospace, automotive and many other high-tech industries.

Computer-aided production significantly improves product quality, but also production efficiency. The use of multi-axis CNC machinery contributes to reduced turnaround time, therefore faster production cycles and increased production capacity. With over 100 high-precision machines, at Décovi we can serve clients with quick turnaround times and production requests from 5 to 100,000 pieces.

Computer-aided design also facilitates faster prototyping and easier prototype testing. Designers in our technical office are highly skilled in product design and ready to work together with our customers to develop optimal product prototypes according to their specific needs and goals.

Therefore, the advantages of CNC machining include:

  • Design flexibility
  • Shorter lead times
  • High quality
  • Easier prototyping
  • No minimum order quantity
  • Better physical characteristics of machined parts (compared to parts made by 3d printing processes)
  • Supreme surface finish quality with or without post-processing
