The automotive industry consists of businesses that manufacture and sell automobiles and automotive parts to consumers. The automotive sector encompasses a broad range of stakeholders, from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) who build consumer cars and trucks, to all of the suppliers and manufacturers that provide OEMs and aftermarket buyers with vehicle parts and components. The automotive sector operates in a spirit of continuous improvement, constantly innovating and bringing new and exciting products to market.
At Aluminum Die Casting Co. Inc. (ADC), our computer numerical control (CNC) machining capabilities enable us to provide our customers with highly precise components for a comprehensive array of automotive applications.
CNC Milling and Turning Benefits for Automotive
CNC technology has been integral to the evolution of the global automotive sector by allowing automakers and part manufacturers to streamline production operations. The automotive industry has transitioned to more advanced machining technologies that offer exceptional accuracy and superior part-to-part repeatability.
These properties are essential to an industry where parts and components must work reliably and interchangeably across each specific vehicle line. Using CNC machines, automotive manufacturers can produce parts of virtually any shape or size within very precise tolerances. Some examples of CNC-machined automotive parts may include:
- Electrical components
- Engine blocks
- Engine cylinders
- Engine parts
- Exhaust system parts
- Gear shaft parts
- Oil pans
- Suspension parts
CNC machining has significantly improved the speed of automotive manufacturing. Using CNC machine tools, suppliers can provide vehicle components quickly in accordance with strict production schedules.
