There are many advantages to programming our CNC Milling operations to complete the part piece in one operation. The one I’ve found to be beneficial during several hundred piece runs happens to be more advantageous for our customer.

There’s been quite a few occasions I’ve experienced where our customer recieves a call from their customer placing a sooner than expected demand on the parts set to ship when the total order is complete (which can take several more days if milled one operation at a time).

I receive the call asking when they can expect delivery on the total and tell them. Hear them sigh Until I go on to tell them how many we have completed so far and they can pick them up right now.

Often times they only needed the quantity we have completed and on hand or less to satisfy the sudden demand and can fulfill their customers request.
