Subtractive Manufacturing

Subtractive manufacturing, also referred to as traditional machining, has been the mainstay of production for the last 200 years. In its simplest form, it is taking a piece of metal and removing material until all that is left is the finished part. Of course subtractive manufacturing today is very high tech. And no matter the material or the manufacturing process used in subtractive manufacturing or machining, OMIC R&D has the capability to help you overcome current challenges you are experiencing in your machining production or to help you take advantage of your company’s next opportunity. OMIC R&D possesses a wide range of cutting edge five-axis mills, turning machines and millturns, as well as access the tools and support of seven of the worlds best cutting tool manufacturers. OMIC R&D also has strong measurement and inspection capabilities to verify our results. When you come to OMIC R&D, you don’t get to play a back seat. OMIC R&D will combine your knowledge with ours to find a solution that works for you.
