CNC contract manufacturing: Introduction to the 5-axis milling machine
CNC milling – quality with computer-aided precision
CNC milling work is a high-precision process based on computerised numerical control. It is suitable for the production of both small and large quantities.
EKK uses 3- and 5-axis milling machines to machine a wide variety of components with an accuracy of +/- 0.05 mm. Our main focus here is on
- the integration and further development of the CAD/CAM process chain
- the optimisation of raw material utilisation with modern nesting software
- the minimisation of manual reworking of components
CAD/CAM programming – Flexible CNC contract manufacturing
CAD/CAM programming is the creation of programs for computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to control machine tools.
Innovative 3D programming systems and simulation software enable the realisation of even highly complex workpieces. The CAD/CAM software is used worldwide to control CNC machines.
Your CAD data is imported directly into our CAM system. If no drawings are available, we will create a 3D model according to your specifications or on the basis of a sample. This forms the basis for the milling strategy in the CAD/CAM system.
CNC cutting – with an oscillating cutter head
The high-frequency oscillating tangential cutting head of our CNC cutting machine allows us to precisely produce complex contours and designs, making us particularly efficient in CNC contract manufacturing. In particular, materials such as EPDM seals, corrugated cardboard, templates made of thick films and other materials that are not suitable for machining processes can be processed effortlessly using our modern CNC cutting machine. We offer maximum flexibility and shorter delivery times. That’s because we manufacture at our sites in Friedberg and Ziemetshausen, where we have a wide range of different raw materials at our disposal.
We produce individual items and series for our customers and partners with consistently high quality in the field of CNC contract manufacturing. Even complicated designs with tight tolerances of just a few hundredths of a millimetre can be produced quickly and cutting with optimised waste on a processing area of 4 x 2 metres. Thanks to the latest version of our nesting software, we are able to manufacture in a particularly resource-efficient way thanks to free-form nesting. We pay attention to the sustainable use of raw materials and rely on advanced manufacturing processes in CNC contract manufacturing.

Frequently asked questions about CNC contract manufacturing:
Why does it make sense to outsource CNC production?
There can be many reasons for outsourcing CNC production. The following reasons speak in favour of CNC contract manufacturing:
- On-schedule production in the event of production bottlenecks
- Fluctuating capacity requirements (machine utilisation)
- The production of special components and small series
- Large-format components
- Lack of access to raw materials or poor purchasing conditions
- No expertise with the corresponding material
How is the quality of the milled parts ensured in CNC contract manufacturing?
The quality of our products and, above all, the satisfaction of our customers are both very important to us. All our CNC contract manufacturing products are delivered to our customers with outstanding functionality, reliability and quality.
We are a certified company according to the ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems. Regular audits and recertifications ensure compliance with our quality standards.
Which plastic is suitable for my requirements?
Thanks to our many years of experience in the field of plastics processing, we can support you in the selection of materials. Depending on the area of application, the plastic must have individual properties, such as UV, oil and solvent resistance, buoyancy or weather resistance. Thanks to our technical expertise, we can provide you with comprehensive and competent advice when choosing the optimum material.
How are the CNC parts delivered?
Depending on the order volume, the finished components are packed in appropriate protective packaging and delivered by parcel or freight company. Basically, we offer you fast order processing and can organise scheduled or express delivery on request.
