CNC Milling & Machining

At Rockpress, our philosophy has always been to provide you with more service, support and expertise – to deliver you less in production times and manufacture costs.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of our new Makino PS95 Metal Milling Centre as part of our expanded metal fabrication solution.

Using the latest in Vertical milling technology, we can achieve absolute precision and accuracy with any machined components-in a fraction of the time.

Rockpress has just added a state-of-the-art Nakamura-Tome automatic Bar Feed Lathe to our milling and turning operations.

Now Rockpress offers a truly complete in-house production process for your metal fabrication project.

To find out more about our new Lathe / Metal Milling Centre and how it can streamline your next metal fabrication job please give us a call.

Advantages of using CNC Milling, CNC Machining, CNC Turning and CNC Routing

CNC Milling, CNC Machining, CNC Turning & CNC Routing are making a big impact in the manufacturing and engineering world. They are part of a new generation of super efficient and precise technologies. Alongside the likes of injection molding and 3D printing these automated CNC machines are speeding up production in the manufacturing sector. It has made it viable for businesses to outsource their milling, machining, routing & cutting needs.


  • Automation – CNC Milling, CNC Machining, CNC Turning & CNC Routing can be entirely automated to handle hundreds or thousands of projects. If you have one design that needs replicating over and over again, a CNC machine will handle this with ease. It could be automotive parts or metal components. In fact, the machinery can be left overnight and will automatically keep the production line moving. All it takes is some simple programming in the outset and it’ll run effectively.


  • Precision and accuracy – Thanks to this automation, you can guarantee precision and accuracy. So long as the designs have been drawn to a precise scale measurement, the CNC Mill or CNC Router will take care of the rest. Previously, it would be left in the hands of a hand-held machine that is susceptible to mistakes. With an automated CNC machine, that is no longer a problem.


  • Safety – As the CNC machinery is no longer reliant on human control, it is inherently safer. CNC Mills & CNC Routers are complete with safety features to guard against accidents. If a problem develops with the machinery, it will simply damage itself, rather than inflicting harm to others. The less hand-held cutting devices in operation, the safer the business.


  • Lower manpower costs – The automation abilities of these machines mean that less manpower is needed in the manufacturing process. A smaller team can program and monitor the robotics, alleviating the strain on human resources.  The precision and skilled work is taken care of by machines, so they can be run at a lower cost.


  • Virtual Training – As the CNC industry relies on electronics, all training can take place virtually. The experts at Trade CNC explain that dangerous, first-hand training is no longer necessary. Instead, the programming and control can be taught via computers. Again, this improves safety and reduces human resources costs.


  • Flexible and adaptive – The best thing about new engineering technology is the inherent flexibility. CNC Milling, CNC Routing & CNC Machining technology can adapt to any project at the click of a button. If it can be programmed, it can be machined! This follows a familiar theme in the manufacturing and engineering world. The likes of laser technology and 3D printing have flexibility at their heart. These technologies allow their operators to change and alter the product easily. It means they can work with a myriad of business sectors and open themselves to new territories.
