CNC Precision Machining

Sabre offers a wide range of CNC machining services including, Multi axis Milling, Turning, Grinding, Wiring and Spark EDM.


CNC Precision Machining Services from Sabre

We undertake all aspects of sub-contract machining including the following:

EDM Wire and Spark Erosion – 

Wire Erosion and Spark Erosion type EDM machines are used in the production of precision components, producing extremely accurate geometry that cannot be cost-effectively produced by any other method.

Injection mould tool cavities are normally EDM machined also complex parts that would otherwise be impossible to manufacture can be produced.

Hardened materials can be machined to very high tolerances using EDM machining.

EDM Hole Drilling – Electrical Discharge Machine drilling allows holes to be rapidly cut through conductive materials such as stainless steels, fully hardened tool steels, copper and Graphite

CNC Turning – is the manufacturing process where diameters of raw material are held and rotated at high speed. As the piece rotates cutting tools are automatically fed to the workpiece, removing material until the final component geometry is created.

CNC Milling –

Like most conventional CNC machining processes, the CNC milling process utilizes computerized controls to operate and manipulate our milling machines which cut and shape stock material. 

The process follows the same basic production stages which all CNC machining processes do, including:

  • Designing a CAD model
  • Converting the CAD model into a CNC program using CAM software
  • Setting up the CNC milling machine and relevant drills and cutters
  • Running the milling program

The CNC milling process begins with the creation of a 2D or 3D CAD part design. Then the completed design is exported to a CNC-compatible file format and converted by WorkNC CAM software into a CNC machine program which dictates the actions of the machine and the movements of the tooling across the workpiece. 

CNC Surface Grinding and cylindrical Grinding – removes small amounts of material by using a high-speed abrasive wheel as the cutting tool. The grinding wheel rotates, while the workpiece, attached to the machine table, moves in the X, Y, and Z axis.

Spark Erosion Machining – is a method used when machining intricate detailed pieces. The process involves a machined electrode being connected to a direct current, this provides a constant spark eroding away at the component. Our full multi axis sparking enables us to cut threads and helical forms.

Laser Engraving – is the process where a laser beam marks the material by removing layers from the surface. The laser hits localised areas with massive levels of energy to generate the high heat required for vaporisation. 

We use Laser Engraving for applying Barcodes, logos or serial numbers to bespoke machined components.


To ensure maximum efficiency from our CNC equipment we program using the very latest Hexagon WorkNC CAD/CAM software.


Sabre has experience in cutting the following metals: Aluminium, Hardened tool steels, Stainless steel, Brass, Copper and titanium.

Non Metal materials we can also machine include: Graphite, ABS, polycarbonate, nylon, POM and PEEK 

If you have a special material request please include this in the enquiry and we can help with this.
