Elements Considered in CNC Quotes / /

There are multiple factors influencing the cost of a CNC project. Design, quantity ordered and turnaround time can all affect the cost. For an accurate and fast quote, submit your details using Fathom’s SmartQuote platform.

Design

CNC manufacturing enables high accuracy, repeatability, control and precision. CNC machines enable the production of complex and intricate parts. The amount of complexity and accuracy can add to the cost of a part. The more complex the design, the higher the cost.

Quantity

The cost of CNC machining is affected by the amount of parts ordered. To cut costs, materials may be stacked during certain processes. To reduce costs, order larger volumes of identical costs.

Turnaround Time

Many cost calculations are based on the time required to manufacture a part. Time calculations will include machine set up time and running time. As CNC machining processes are automated, labor and time are reduced significantly when compared to manual processes.

There are important factors to consider when designing for CNC machining. The desired geometry of a part can affect how it will be positioned inside the CNC machine as well as the time required for set up. If the part must be manually repositioned, the cost and accuracy of the part can be affected. Looser tolerances may be due to the workpiece vibrating during machining, resulting in deformities. The geometry of the tools used can also affect how a part is shaped. If the tool cannot reach a surface, it cannot be machined, creating limitations for hidden internal geometries.
